Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: Grimoire Stones System Shown Off

Atlus has just released a new Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight video highlighting Grimoire Stones — equippable items that bestow the user with new skills, even enemy ones.

The Grimoire Stone system from Etrian Odyssey Untold has been completely overhauled. Regina in the cafe will be able to help players equip, trade and recycle Grimoire Stones. Trading Grimoire Stones is as simple as picking any of the passing explorers in the cafe and striking up a deal with them. Players will be able to see how good their offer stacks up, and once it hits 100%, the deal is done. You can keep adding to the deal if you need to make up some ground, so it’s a good idea to keep those low-level Grimoires around.

Regina can also help with recycling Grimoire Stones. Select the Grimoires you don’t plan on using, offer them up to Regina for recycling, spend some time in a labyrinth and voila – a new Grimoire. Like trading, you’ll be able to see the level of the Grimoire Stone Regina will be able to produce. The more you add in, the higher level of Grimoire you can get.

Grimoire Stones also bestow new weapon skills on characters; so if you want your Protector to use a Highlander’s spear or if your Troubadour wants to go all Indiana Jones with a whip, Grimoire Stones are the answer.
