4. Shining Powder
This powder is the hardest to obtain in the entire list of materials needed in the alchemy stone recipe. The reason being that it is created only as a by-product from various mediocre alchemy practices. So, it is clear that you must master some mid-level alchemy recipes to get your hands on some shining powder.
Note that the Clear Liquid Reagent that is needed in the alchemy stone recipe, falls in the lower level category. This recipe along with other such lesser recipes does not produce Shining Powder in the form of a by-product. But, Sinner’s blood does produce Shining Powder and you will be preparing sinner’s blood for the alchemy stone recipe. So that’s the solution to your problem.
To be frank, you wouldn’t find any best recipe to get Shining Powder. So, trying out AFK and actively-gathering for long sessions might help before procuring it.
