Beginner Black Stones improve Naru Gear by increasing its enhancement level.

 

Should I Keep my Beginner Black Stones?

YES!!! If you are starting a new Season character and don’t already have TET boss gear, keep them!

 

NOTE: Beginner Black Stones are bound to character and can’t be removed from inventory. Frequently pause and attempt Enhancement by right-clicking the Beginner Black Stone.

 

If you have already enhanced all your Naru to PEN, level, you can sell the Beginner Black Stones to the vendor for some silver.
