Pandora came up with some ideas to help jazz things up and bring in new customization options for your characters! With all these existing character slots what could we possibly add to the list? Pandora made it clear, MORE JEWELRY!!! To be specific, Brooches! These brooches each have sockets for jewels, so you can customize your brooch to suit your needs and hunting ground choice! The mini game and brooch/jewel system is being released, October 9th, and when released you guys can play the new mini game and start winning jewels to equip and collect as well!
What is a Brooch?
Brooches are a new equipment slot that is socket-able. Sockets are not binding and can be added and removed just like other pieces of equipment allowing you to swap out your jewels on the go. Upon release there are 3 new brooches able to be obtained. Ancient Brooch (2 slots) which can be purchased for adena from Pandora. Shiny Brooch (3 slots) which you will be able to obtain from the clan store or gift master for gift coins. Lastly the very rare Autumn Brooch (5 slots) which can be won from Pandora's Jewelry Box mini game.
What is a Jewel?There are a total of 9 different jewel types that can be equipped in a brooch (or slotted item) Each jewel has 5 different levels. You can only equip one jewel of each type at a time. Of course you are also limited to the number of slots in your brooch (or other slotted items) as to how many jewels you can equip. Jewels are non trade-able, however at level 5 you can seal them and exchange the sealed jewel.
How to get JewelsYou can obtain jewels from Pandora's Jewelry Chest mini game that is on the website (here) . Playing this mini game lets you win different prizes many of which are jewels. There are also jewel boxes that are trade-able/sellable.
What do these jewels do?These stat boosts are still under testing and are subject to change but the boosts upon release are as follows:
Cat's Eye - Increases Good Luck and Fortune
Sphalerite - Adds Intelligence Per Character Level
Vital Stone - Increases the effect of Vitality.
Tanzanite - Offers PvP Protection
Green Kyanite - Adds Dexterity Per Character Level
Apatite - Adds Strength Per Character Level
Vanadinite - Aids in Gathering and Crafting Trade Skills
Red Jasper - Adds HPMax per Level
More information is obtainable about this new system by talking to Pandora at -warp 1
Sounds pretty awesome! Looking forward to it! Thanks for all the hard work! Can't wait to get it all!
I see the stats up here but I don;t see anything different at Pandora and the pandora game looks no different. Good job working on the server though.
they are not released yet
So based on the other post about luck...
It is still wise to want to have a lv5 cat's eye to increase our luck. Since the green egg dolls increase the cap. I can only assume people with a lot of luck gear are still yet to max out luck. I only ask because I often only use 6 eggs and no other luck gear. I figured by now I had "maxed" possible luck out.
The news jewels look very promising. Nice new creative jewels and a different variable now depending where we hunt or what we're doing in game
I'm sure the new jewel will increase max luck, also I added some items to storage to help you at
While researching the Cats Eye Gem, the only difference between level 4, and level 5, is +2 luck. (Goes from +8 luck to +10 from lev 4 -> 5), a pretty mediocre increase considering there are dolls that give you 10 luck a piece.
The majority of gems give you anywhere from a 50% to 100% increase from lev 4 to 5 , due to the difficulty in crafting and obtaining. (Example Ruby, sapphire, topaz, obsidian, garnet, amethyst, sphalerite, vital stone, kyanite, vanadinite, red jasper).
Following other trends, I personally would feel it giving 16 or 20 luck would be more appropriate for the level.
agreed, also red jasper is crap with 1150 at lv115 compared to lv5 garnet with 2k hp for any level character. Think growth on it should be higher or maybe growth should be scaled up to be weaker per level at lower levels and higher per level at higher levels especially 100+
Zaj if you would consider making some minor tweaks to these jewels that would be awesome. I know you have adjusted some I. The dust batch years ago.
Bump. Would you consider looking at cats eye or the hp gem zaj? Thank you
