In many ways, Atelier Sophie 2 brings the series back to its roots. This means a more slow-paced battle system compared to Atelier Ryza, a different alchemy system and a bigger focus on your character’s progression. So, let’s take a look at how exactly that progression works.
Leveling Up in Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream
On the surface, leveling up in Atelier Sophie 2 works similarly to other jRPGs. Each fight you win gives experience points, dependent on the enemies you’ve defeated. Once you’ve accumulated enough, you’ll gain a new level, which will cause the statistics of your characters to raise automatically. But it will also reward you with one more thing – Ability Points
Ability Points are used in the Ability menu to buy new, useful skills that have a variety of helpful effects. Some give percental stat boosts, but others can also improve your gathering capacity or unlock new items and recipes used in crafting. But, with the amount of possibilities, you might notice that Ability Points gained through leveling up are simply not enough to get everything. Fortunately, there’s one more way to get them.
You can get Ability Points by doing Party quests, given by your party members. These are usually pretty simple, ranging from tasks like fighting a certain enemy type enough times or doing alchemy with one of your comrades. By doing these, you should earn enough points to get every ability you want.

Terraria: How to Find Every New Critter in 1.4.4 Update
The 1.4.4 update for Terraria introduces a handful of new critters into the game that you can find in various locations.
There have been quite a few additions to the 1.4.4 update of Terraria. One of these additions is the new critters that you can find in various locations throughout the game.
In this guide, we’ll have a look at what those critters are and how you can find them.
How to Find Every New Critter in 1.4.4 Update in Terraria
There are around four new critters that were added to the game in the 1.4.4 update. They’re as follows:
The Stinkbug is a tiny, flying critter that can spawn in the Forest biome. It’s quite easy to catch using a bug net, and you can use it as bait with a 10% Bait Power. Apart from that, you can also combine it with a Platinum Broadsword in order to create the Flymeal sword at a Honey pool.
The second critter is the Toucan which is a bird that can spawn on the surface, particularly in the Jungle biome. It has very little HP and zero defense, so if you want to catch it, you need to use a bug net. If you’re not careful, you can easily kill this bird due to its low health.
You can keep it inside a Toucan Cage (combine it with a Terrarium) and use it as decoration. However, do keep in mind that the Toucan will no longer be able to get outside of the cage after that.
Cockatiels come in gray and yellow variants, and you can normally find them in the Jungle biome, the same as the Toucan. Also, they have very little health with no defense, so using a bug net to capture them is a must.
As with the Toucan, you can use them as decoration by creating a Cockatiel Cage by combining your captured Cockatiel with a Terrarium.
Lastly, we have the Macaws which share the same spawning point as the previous two birds. They also have the same stats and can be placed inside the Macaw Cage to serve as decoration.
