Example TRI Naru Accessory Set

Lets look at how beneficial a fully enhanced Naru accessory set is.

Remember that Naru Accessories can only be enhanced to TRI.

TRI Naru Accessory Set

The Naru Accessory Set is very nice, even at base stats.

Lets upgrade it to TRI and see what happens!

Notice the nice boost to both AP and Accuracy. But watch the cost of enhancement vs black stone cost!

  • AP: 41
  • Accuracy: 27
  • Weight Limit: +40 LT

Naru Gear Patch Notes

Source: July 15, 2020 Patch Notes

 

Major Update: Serendia and Calpheon Main Quest Reward Revamp, Including New “Naru” Gear

  • Added new “Naru” gear.
    • You can get this new gear instead of certain gear that was given out as rewards for completing main quests in Serendia and Calpheon.
    • Naru gear was designed for adventuring in Serendia, Calpheon, and Mediah. As you complete the main quests in these regions, you will be able to get the new Beginner Black Stones needed for enhancing this new gear.
      • You cannot receive Beginner Black Stones in retrospect for main quests already finished.
    • Because Naru gear was made for adventurers who are just starting out on their adventures, we have made them easier to enhance, with an even higher chance for success compared to Tuvala gear. You also need less Cron Stones for safe enhancement. In fact, you’ll only need 3 for trying to enhance from TET to PEN! Therefore, be sure to give enhancing them a go!
    • Season characters can go to Fughar the Crow Merchants Guild Chief Manager after completing the Mediah main quests to trade in your PEN Naru gear for PRI Tuvala gear, which should serve you better as you journey onward to new horizons.
    • You can only enhance Naru accessories (i.e. earring, necklace, belt, and ring) to TRI level.
  • Added PRI “Tuvala” awakening weapons as rewards for completing Awakening/Talent/Ascension quests.
    • Canon awakening weapons will still be given out as well, for completing the quests.
      • Season characters cannot equip Canon awakening weapons.
    • Although non-season characters cannot open the box containing the PRI Tuvala awakening weapon, they can still sell it to an NPC vendor.
  • You can now use Heating in the Processing window (L) on certain items to get Beginner Black Stones.
