Ys IX: Monstrum Nox Sacramentals are items that you can equip to provide useful benefits for your entire party. Initially, you’ll only be able to equip one Sacramental, but throughout the game, you’ll gain the ability to equip up to six at a time. These extra slots come from reading Apocrypha books, and they can be found in treasure chests, bought at vendors, or given as rewards for finding collectibles.
Finding Sacramentals is the same. Some will be in the form of a Sacramental already, and you can equip them right away. Other times, Sacramentals will be in the form of rubrics, and you need to give them to Tito back at the Dandelion. He’ll then be able to make that particular one.
They’re scattered throughout the game, and our guide will help you find all the Sacramentals and Apocrypha books.
Additionally, there is no trophy or achievement associated with the Sacramentals. They are unmissable, so feel free to collect them at your own leisure. Also note that Sacramentals and extra slots from Apocrypha books do not transfer to New Game+.
