*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***
Open your Luxerion map with X (default controls) and find Old Town. Head there and you will find the Sorcery Shop called Spellbound Synthesis. Speak to the shopkeep and a tutorial will begin where they show you how to combine two level one lightening abilities into an enhanced version. By doing this, you automatically unlock the NOVICE SYNTHESIST achievement. Afterward you can do this with any ability you own two of as long as the ability name and level match (EX: Fire Lvl 1 and Fire Lvl 1, but not Fire Lvl 1 and Fire Lvl 2). The yellow ability names indicate a version of the ability with a stat bonus, such as magic+10, and can be combined with yellow or white abilities of the same name and level. Abiltites are rarely found in chests, but drop constantly from enemies on easy mode. This is represented by the monster leaving a colored crystal behind when they "evaporate" and the ability is displayed in your post battle item rewards list. You will get more than enough abilities this way to get the achievement on or around day 5. Sorcery Shops are located in Luxerion - Old Town, Yusnaan - Champion's Corner, Wildlands - Jagd Villaig and Research Camp, Dead Dunes - Ruffian.
