    • Check if there are any Season only Challenge Rewards (Y).
    • Check if there are any Season only items, coupons, login gifts, etc. inside Black Spirit’s Safe, Mailbox (B), Inventories, or Storage.
    • PEN all of your weapons then armor. PEN accessories if you have enough resources. (You can only keep 1 set of Tuvala gear and accessories at Season graduation.)
    • Use, exchange, or sell all of your special Season items:
      • Turn in extra Time-Filled Black Stones to Fughar for Advice of Valks (+10 to +40) or Valks’ Cry. (You can also vendor for 10k silver each.)
      • Use all Rift’s Fragments and Rift’s Echo.
      • EXCLUSION: the Season pass reward item, Seal of Journey, is not deleted upon graduation and can be stored up for later use if you like.
    • Obtain the season alchemy stone Treant’s Tear. (Limit 1 per family. You get to keep this after graduation.)
    • Double check all the Season Quests you would like to do.
    • Be sure to use all Misty Breeze skillbooks as they will not transfer to another season character and you can’t use them after you graduate!

    What Happens to Season Gear at Graduation?

    You get to keep 1 full set of Tuvala gear and the rest is destroyed.

    Tuvala Gear Conversion

    During graduation Tuvala gear is converted into family-bound gear that can no longer be used on a Season Character.

    Tuvala Gear will keep creator Family name for PEN (V) items.

    The game will automatically convert 1 full set of Tuvala, choosing the gear that it thinks is the best. (highest enhancement level)

    All other unconverted duplicate Tuvala is deleted upon Season Server end.

    All Tuvala enhancement materials are destroyed so make sure you exchange, sell, or use them.

    You will no longer be able to enhance converted Tuvala Gear.

    Pen Tuvala Armor

    Tuvala Gear Conversion Priority

    1. Highest Enhancement Level:
      • Tuvala gear upgraded to the highest enhancement level (except for a max of two earrings and two rings, totaling 13 pieces).
      • Example: If you have both “PEN (V) Tuvala Battle Axe” and “TRI (III) Tuvala Axe,” the PEN (V) Battle Axe will be automatically converted. If you have multiple gear at the same level, a second set of rules will determine which one gets converted.
    2. Item Brand Spell Stone Gear:
      • Example: If you have both branded and non-branded “PEN (V) Tuvala Gloves,” the branded one will be converted. If you have multiple pieces at the same level and they are either all branded or all non-branded, a third set of rules will decide.
    3. Most Recently Crafted:
      • Example: If you have a non-branded “PEN (V) Tuvala Longsword” crafted on Nov. 1 and a non-branded “PEN (V) Tuvala Amulet” crafted on Nov. 10, the more recently crafted amulet will be converted.

    *If your inventory is full, check your storage in Heidel for the converted items.

    Items Deleted From Graduation

    The following items will be removed upon season graduation.

    • Black Spirit Pass
    • Extra Tuvala Gear that exceeds the 1 full set of converted gear.
