The introductory quests basically show you everything you need to know to farm Sylphs.
A teleport to Atoll can be found in Cloud City. If you still have difficulty to access it, you can open your map view and click teleport, and the game will auto-navigate you to it.
At the time of writing this Guide there are only 2 levels in Atoll. Each level is specific to one sylph type. More levels will be added with future patches. In order to access the next level, you must seek the teleport in the previous level. For example, to access level 2 (Pans) you must navigate through level 1. There is no direct access from the teleport to higher level Atoll.
All the wild sylphs in Atoll are all level 50.
Level 1 contains Iris, level 2 contains Pan.
You can collect essences by clicking on a wild sylph. You will either receive an essence or you will be put into a fight with that sylph. If you have to fight, you will receive an essence on victory. Occasionally you will receive the respective sylph seal instead of the essence.
The type of sylph you farm will dictate the type of essence you collect.
Essence of Water
can be collected by farming Iris and Essence of Wind
can be collected by farming Pan. Iris are MAtk based where as Pan are PAtk based.
You need 60 essences of one type to exchange for a seal of the same type.
Exchange can be carried out at the NCP called Alice
. There are currently 3 Alices, one on each level and one at the teleport into Atoll.
The Alices actually in Atoll only exchange essences that can be farmed on their own level, where as the Alice at the Teleport entrance to Atoll exchanges all the available essences.
Once you trade essences for their respective seal, the seal will enter your inventory. You will need to open this to get an actual sylph seal. The most common quality of sylph that can drop is a white, however higher quality sylphs can drop randomly with a lower drop rate. The best colour dropped to date is Blue.
Again, the sylph seals will turn up in your inventory. Water Seal gives Iris Seals, Wind Seal gives Pan Seals.
In order to open the sylph seals you will need an empty spot in your sylph list.
