|This magical platinum band, featuring the engraved, silhouettes of the head and shoulders of four sinister-looking figures, is perhaps the most famous of the many items enchanted by the great 'trickster' mage, Varkyn.|
The enchantments long ago laid upon this ring will provide bonuses to Melee Rating, Stamina Points, and Nevernal Reserve ...once you've managed to unlock them.
|Note: You'll need 32-80 AT to acquire this ring, see on item page.|
You can get this item from The Painted Peddler
Once you buy the ring, the description changes to:
|This magical platinum band, featuring the engraved, silhouettes of the head and shoulders of four sinister-looking figures, is perhaps the most famous of the many items enchanted by the great 'trickster' mage, Varkyn.
You purchased this grand ring from the mysterious traveling merchant known only as the 'Painted Peddler'. To unlock the full might of this ring, be sure to seek out Varkyn's ruined tower in the Griffon Crags in Central Tysa.
Visiting Varkyn's Tower may or may not upgrade your ring. There are random bonuses assigned to the ring. So far it has not been observed if the bonuses can decrease, for now they only remain the same or increase.
See The Griffon Crags. The only previously discovered location there is called Varkyn's Ruined Tower. There are no combats there, only an encounter with Varkyn's ghost, which, after rushing through you, may increase your ring's power.
In the description of the ring after visiting Varkyn's ghost, one or more of the engraved figures may start glowing, or they may change their color. The first figure gives a bonus to MR, the second - to Stamina Points, the third - to Nevernal Reserve, and the fourth to all three. The color is an indication of how powerful the bonus is for that particular figure:
- Not Glowing: +0
- Glowing a bright green: +1
- Glowing a bright blue: +2
- Glowing a bright yellow: +3
- Glowing a bright red: +4
Please note even if you manage to release some of the Nevernal energy locked in the four figures the ring's stats may remain unchanged.
When all four figures are glowing bright red you get +8 MR, +8 SP and +8 Nevernal Reserve. Currently that is the max possible bonus. If you visit the tower after reaching it you get nothing.
