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
