Chrono Cross: How to Craft Rainbow Armor (Master Hammer)

To create Rainbow Weapons and Armor, players will need to complete an ongoing side quest and recruit a few key party members. Failing any part of this quest will block the ability to forge this high level gear. However, one can try again during New Game Plus.

Marble restoration

The questline involves purifying Marbule in the home world. During the main quest, players must fight the Sage of Marbule in a boss fight to gain access to the Sea of ​​Eden. After that Chrono-Cross Boss fight, Nikki will approach and talk to the Sage. And at this point, players must follow Nikki aboard the Magical Dreamers ship and agree to help organize a concert. If players jump directly onto the ship, there is still a small window of time to speak with Nikki. But the endpoint is to complete the Sea of ​​Eden proper.

If the Marbule quest has been started, players must progress through the main story until they win otherworldly Fargo. Take him aboard the SS Zelbess and battle the Home version of himself. Then Party Fargo will have control of the ship and can authorize Nikki Chrono-Cross gig to start. As it unfolds, enter Marbule and defeat all Lagoon freak; they are innately blue, making them weak against fire attacks and red characters. After they are all killed, the roar of the black dragon in Another will be heard.

Let Marbule return to the world map of Chrono-Cross, and allow pirates and demi-humans to rebuild the city. Then head back in and travel to the back cave where the black dragon would usually reside. Instead, a merchant will hang in the left corner. He will offer to sell the Master Hammer for 10,000 gold.

Zappa meets Zappa

For the second half, at any time, bring the party member Radius to Zappa’s Forge in Termina (Home). Talk to the blacksmith and Radius will convince him to join the party. Place Zappa in the group and now go to Termina (Another). Enter this version of the forge, and both Chrono-Cross versions of Zappa will agree to work together. However, their tools are too weak and need new ones. Use the item menu and deliver the Master Hammer to the other Zappa. A cutscene will play and the pair will unlock the ability to forge rainbow gear.

Get Shiny Coins in Chrono Cross

Now that we have the Chrono-Cross recipe to make Rainbow, it is necessary to get the ingredients to forge. They are all Shiny type materials, six in total, corresponding to one element. Dew for Blue, ember for red, Sheet for green, salt for White, Sand for yellow, and Soot for Black. Players can directly farm them or use Chrono-Cross‘ crafting system to break down other items to collect them.

Summon Method

Any enemy killed by magic summon will produce the glowing object of the same color as the attack. This requires the entire field to be the correct color and the caster to be innate of the spell’s color. Players can cast three individual spells or use one of Field elements to instantly transform all three rings. Setting up the land is best done by the other two party members while the summoner retains elemental level and stamina. Players can use a total of twelve summons in Chrono-Cross:

  • Frog Prince (Blue): level 7, given by the Water Dragon during the Chrono-Cross main story.
  • Blue Whale (Blue: level 8, drop for defeating the Water Dragon.
  • Golem (Yellow): level 7, obtained by using a trap on Centaurpede in the swamps of Hydra (another).
  • Thunda snake (yellow): level 8, drop for defeating the Earth Dragon.
  • Sonja (green): level 7, obtained by using a trap on Prey Mantis in Gaea’s Navel (Home).
  • Genius (green): level 8, drop for defeating the green dragon.
  • Mothership (black): level 7, obtained by using a trap on Shadow Cat in Fossil Valley (Another).
  • Reaper (Black): level 8, drop for defeating the black dragon.
  • Red Wolf (Red): level 7, earned for using a trap on Hot Doggity in either Chrono-Cross world version of Mount Pyre.
  • Salamander (red): level 8, drop for defeating the Fire Dragon.
  • Unicorn (White): level 7, earned for using a trap on Dodo in Fossil Valley (Home).
  • Saints (White): level 8, drop for defeating the Sky Dragon.

Fly and dismount

Players who don’t want to worry about the whole summoning and fielding process can also rely on various flight abilities that a handful of characters learn. Kid, Mel and Fargo all have a version of Steal as their Tech level 3 named pilfer, To tear outand Looting respectively. Each of these Chrono-Cross attacks match their innate color, making it more or less powerful depending on the target’s color and current field effects. Additionally, a team with Kid and Mel can use Double Tech Dual socket for even higher chances of flying. Regardless of the method, players will want to look for the following:

  • Charms: Prevents “Anti” spells being dropped and stolen from various enemies of the same innate elemental color.
  • Plates: Protective body armor stolen from each of the six Chrono-Cross dragon elemental bosses.
  • Sickness caps: Headgear that prevents status effects like poison, burns, sprain, and flu; there are no white or black versions. Stolen from enemies of the same innate type.

When dismantled in a forge, the above items will yield one or two additional shiny ingredients. Some will be a single color matching their composition, while others will also produce the opposing color they are defending against. Although it’s not much, it can be enough to complete an ultimate weapon.

Chrono Cross: The Radical Dreamers Edition is for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
