How to Complete all Ruins in Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy for PlayStation 4 & PlayStation 5

Welcome to our Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy Ruins Guide. The main plot of Atelier Ryza 2 heavily features five old ruins. The story will take you to each one, and while there, you’ll need to solve at least one clue in the Exploration Diary to find out enough information to progress.

The process of filling in the Exploration Diary is fairly straightforward, and you’ll need to do the same things each time you visit.

First, you will have five objectives to complete called “Research Notes”.

The notes are written in a somewhat cryptic way, but they will all require you to either open a specific chest, defeat specific enemies, or gather certain materials for the first time.

If you find yourself struggling to complete a research note, look on the map for Chest icons or Formidable Enemy icons and check them out. You should also try out all of your tools on every different material deposit in the area to make sure you collect any materials you might need.

Once all five of these objectives have been completed, the Ruins Compass will become active, and you’ll be able to use it to detect nearby Fragments. To progress the story, you will only need a handful of these, but in order to 100% complete all 5 Ruins, you will need to find every single Fragment.

Some Fragments are hidden in Shadow enemies, which are located at formidable enemy locations on the map.

Whenever you collect a blue fragment, a new set of clues will appear in the Exploration Diary, which you can access by holding .

Each Ruin has five clue sets. The uppermost one in each Ruin is required for the story, but the other four are optional. You will be rewarded a lot of SP for completing them, though, and you will have to complete them if you want their associated trophies!

To make things a lot easier on you, I’ve provided maps throughout this guide that detail the locations of every single Fragment. I haven’t bothered to distinguish between their different colors as that would be pointless given that you’ll need them all anyway.

To complete a Clue Set, look at each clue on the right-hand side and read the blue words. Then, cycle through the fragments you’ve collected on the left and look for one with similar blue text to match them up. Once each and every clue in every clue set has a fragment assigned to it, the Exploration Diary for that Ruin will reach 100%.

If you can’t be bothered reading them, it’s helpful to note that there’s no punishment for placing a fragment in the incorrect spot, and the game will immediately tell you if you do. So, if you really want to, you can just try every single fragment in a clue slot until one fits and then move on.

So, now that you understand what’s required, continue on for the maps I’ve provided below…

Mausoleum of Eternity Ruin Fragment Locations

The Mausoleum of Eternity (later named the Ethereal Dragon’s Coffin) is the first ruin you access, and you’ll only be able to explore one area for now. Here you’ll get a tutorial on how Ruins Exploration works and will need to collect all six Fragments.
