Disassemble is a feature available in some Atelier games. It allows the player to "dismantle" items to obtain raw material from them.
In the Arland subseries, it is a skill performed by blacksmiths. In Dusk, it is considered an alchemy technique.
Hagel can disassemble weapons and armors to obtain the ingot or cloth used to make them. This service costs 500 cole, and consumes the weapon or armor disassembled.
Like in Atelier Rorona, Hagel is in charge of disassembling. It works exactly like the previous game.
Like the two previous titles, Hagel will disassemble weapons and armors if paid. In order to unlock this feature, the player has to synthesize a Synthesis Piece and deliver it to Hagel when requested.
Upon having installed the dismantle device in the atelier, disassembly becomes available. Disassembling allows the player to obtain recipes and materials from relics.
Upon returning to the atelier from gathering, the list of relics obtained will appear and the player will be asked if they want to disassemble them. Items with a blue question mark are items with unknown recipes; disassembling them will grant the recipe and a material (one per item). Items with recipes known won't have any mark, but they can also be disassembled to obtain the material. Items with more powerful effects grant better materials. The dismantled item will be lost.
There are some materials (considered synthesis items) that can only be obtained through disassembling. These materials are:
- Hand-Wound Thread
- Ancient Water
- Fire Lord Tears
- Aroma Materia
- Fried Paper
- Gold Thread
- Primo. Medicine
- Old Stone
- Elaborate Screw
Disassembling is performed by Miruca in her atelier.
