Evolving Rings are back! This time however, things have changed. There are now three Evolving rings to collect and upgrade, and if you collect all three and upgrade them at least30 times total, you can combine them into the ultimate Evolving ring: the Absolute Ring.

  • There are three different phases, in which players will receive a ring and be able to upgrade it.
  • To receive the ring during each phase, players must speak to Gaga and select “I want a ring.”
  • To upgrade each ring, Players must speak to Gaga, and select “I want to upgrade my ring.” to receive the Evolving Ring Upgrade Potion box.
  • Players must then stay logged in for an hour with the box in their inventory to receive the Evolving Ring Upgrade Potion.
  • Players must then speak to Gaga again and select “I want to upgrade my ring.” with both the ring and potion in their inventory, and they will receive one upgrade to their ring.
  • Players must do this 11 times during each 12 day phase to fully upgrade each ring.
  • If players have participated at least 30 days, they can receive the Absolute Ring, which has the combined stats of all three Evolving Rings.
  • Players can keep track of their progress by speaking to Gaga and selecting ‘Check your event list.’ This will bring up an Attendance Check UI that shows each date of the event,and stamps on the days that the player has participated in.

This way, if a player missed the last day, they can still make their ring tradable, and receive the 11th upgrade. Players who missed any other day, but upgraded on the 11th day and made their ring tradable, will not be able to use the bonus day.
