Nano Crystal Creation

Required Skills[edit]

  • Nano Programming (NP)
  • Computer Literacy (CL)
  • Mechanical Engineering (ME)
  • Electrical Engineering (EE)
  • Quantum Force field Technology (QFT)

Needed Items and Tools[edit]

Component *1 Location Min. QL
Jensen Personal Ore Extractor R Shop
General Tools and Bases
at least 25%
QL65+ recommended
Isotope Separator R at least 25%
QL65+ recommended
Neutron Displacer R at least 50%
QL130+ recommended
Carbonrich Rock Co see below at least 100%
Crystal Reflection Pattern Co/C Shop
Nano Crystal Componets
at least 25%
only needed for some discs
Symbol Library Co/C at least 25%
only needed for some discs
Photon Particle Emitter Co at least 50%
Instruction Disc Co Loot, Chests Determines the QL
R = Reusable, Co = Consumption, C = some discs only, has to be of the right class

Because you can re-use the first three tools, it's recommended to buy them directly in a QL suitable for processing parts required for higher Nano Programs. (The highest Carbonrich Rock is of QL 255, while the highest buildable Nano Program is of QL 239 (Anima of The Abomination))

Locations of Carbonrich Rock fields[edit]

See Carbonrich Rock

Unfortunately, these rocks can not be bought in any shop (except Player Shops, of course) and can be found in certain areas only:

Area QL-Range Coords
4 Holes 1-60 Scattered far amongst numerous tower field hazards
Condemned Subway 1-60 Slum Runners to the right at the trench just before Vergil Aeneid
Southern Artery Valley 10-60 2620 x 2920 Clearing at Tsunayoshi Smith and The Big Soul Fragment
Broken Shores 1-150 2350 x 3482 Open field
Avalon 10-110 2446 x 1317 The Notum Tree. Small number with fast respawn
Avalon 10-110 1672 x 763 Higher QLs guarded by Nanofreaks
Central Artery Valley 1-245 /waypoint 1200 1000 590 Four Rocks,
guarded by level 140-180 Nanofreaks, Anuns and Snakes
Deep Artery Valley 60-255 /waypoint 1635 2940 595,
guarded by level 140-180 Anuns and level 140-220 Drill

In these areas you often have to challenge mobs in the same level range. If you are of a lower level, you should use a Yalmaha or ask an Adventurer for Calia's Form: Parrot (Other) to collect the rocks.

Crafting[edit]

Creating the Program Crystal[edit]

The combination of items in Anarchy Online has to be done in the following way:

First, you pick up the item, which should be added to an other, with a leftclick. After tat you drag the item on the second one and combine them with a shift-rightclick. Alternatively you can use the tradeskill window <Shift+T>. The so created item will appear in the next free slot in your inv. It's advisable to have at least one free slot during the creation of new items.

To get a Program Crystal that is the base part for any tradeskilled Nano Crystal the following steps are needed:

Jensen Personal Ore Extractor + Carbonrich Rock = Carbonrich Ore Skills: ME
Jensen POE Carbonrich Rock Carbonrich Ore QL x 3
Isotope Separator + Carbonrich Ore = Pure Carbon Crystal Skills: ME/EE
Isotope Separator Carbonrich Ore Pure Carbon Crystal QL x 3.75
Neutron Displacer + Pure Carbon Crystal = Program Crystal Skills: ME/QFT
Neutron Displacer Pure Carbon Crystal Program Crystal QL x 4.25

At this point there are two different further paths to combine Program Crystal with the Instruction Disc to obtain the final Nano Crystal, depending on the wording in the description of your Instruction Disc.

Symbol Library-Based Instruction Discs[edit]

Follow this process if the description of your Instruction Disc contains the phrase "If combined with a ... Symbol Library".

During the crafting process you have to check the description of your Instruction Disc to establish the applicable school of the Symbol Library and the Crystal Reflection Pattern that can be used in the tradeskill process. The following schools are available:

School Crystal Reflection Pattern Symbol Library
Combat Crystal Reflection Pattern - Combat Symbol Library - Combat
Medical Crystal Reflection Pattern - Medical Symbol Library - Medical
Protection Crystal Reflection Pattern - Protection Symbol Library - Protection
PSI Crystal Reflection Pattern - PSI Symbol Library - PSI
Space Crystal Reflection Pattern - Space Symbol Library - Space

Once you have purchased the Symbol Library and the Crystal Reflection Pattern of the applicable 'School' you can create your finished Nano Crystal by following these steps:

Crystal Reflection Pattern - Combat + Program Crystal = Prepared Program Crystal - Combat Skills: EE/QFT
Crystal Reflection Pattern Program Crystal Prepared Program Crystal QL x 4.5
Symbol Library - Combat + Instruction Disc (Summon Grid Armor Mk IV) = Compiled Algorithm (Summon Grid Armor Mk IV) Skills: NP/CL
Symbol Library Instruction Disc Compiled Algorithm QL x 4
Photon Particle Emitter + Compiled Algorithm (Summon Grid Armor Mk IV) = Programmed Photon Particle Emitter (Summon Grid Armor Mk IV) Skills: NP
Photon Particle Emitter Compiled Algorithm Programmed Photon Particle Emitter QL x 4.25
Prepared Program Crystal - Combat + Programmed Photon Particle Emitter (Summon Grid Armor Mk IV) = Nano Crystal (Summon Grid Armor Mk IV) Skills: ME/NP
Prepared Program Crystal Programmed Photon Particle Emitter Nano Crystal ME: QL x 4.5
NP: QL x 4.7
These icons are from the Nano Program 'Summon Grid Armor Mk IV', other programs have different icons

Prepared Program Crystal-Based Instruction Discs[edit]

Follow this process if the description of your Instruction Disc contains the phrase "If combined with a Prepared Program Crystal".

Photon Particle Emitter + Program Crystal = Prepared Program Crystal Skills: NP
Photon Particle Emitter Program Crystal Prepared Program Crystal QL x 4.25
Prepared Program Crystal + Instruction Disc (Cellular Restoration) = Nano Crystal (Cellular Restoration) Skills: EE/QFT
Prepared Program Crystal Instruction Disc Nano Crystal QL x 7
These icons are from the Nano Program 'Cellular Restoration', other programs have different icons
