​Lost Ark engravings: How to get engravings from accessories

Lost Ark Apr-04-2022

After recipes, the second source of engravings is from accessories. In the late-game you'll start finding that magical jewelry—rings, necklaces, and earrings—do more than just improve your core stats. Accessories will drop with random engravings on them. These can be battle engravings or class engravings for the class you're playing when you earn them.

Though you can equip two rings and two earrings, they have to be of different kinds. You can have a Twisted Magick Ring on one hand and a Twisted Elemental Ring on the other, but you can't wear two of either kind at once.

By default, Lost Ark will only compare a highlighted accessory in your inventory with the top one you've got equipped. You'll need to press alt to compare it to the second ring or earring. Make sure you're not upgrading one ear or hand while leaving a lower-level item on the other.

Rare accessories will add a node to one random engraving, while epic and legendary accessories will add nodes to multiple engravings, including one of the negative ones. As with all engravings, having less than five nodes lit up in the negative engravings means they'll have no effect. You'll have to worry more about those with the next source of engravings.

How to get engravings from ability stones

If you're anything like me, you completed the Road to Faceting tutorial quest to learn about ability stones as soon as it became available, then promptly put them right out of your mind. Learn from my mistake: ability stones matter.

A slot for equipping one of these ugly purple rocks appears beneath the slots for rings, but you can't add just any ability stone you find off the ground. First you have to take them to the local ability stone cutter. Each city hub has one—in Luterra Castle that's Brite, who you'll find in Prosperity Plaza.

Each ability stone can provide nodes in three randomly chosen engravings: two battle engravings, and one penalty engraving. (Ability stones never have class engravings.) Before they're of any use, the cutter will have to facet them. This costs silver, the amount increasing with the rarity of the ability stone.

Under each of the three engravings on an ability stone is a row of diamonds, the amount again varying by rarity. The top two rows are for the battle engravings, and the more of those diamonds become successful facets rather than grayed-out pips, the more nodes you'll get. The bottom engraving is the negative one, and the diamonds beneath it can become cracks, increasing its nodes and the strength of its penalty, or preferably the grayed-out pips that indicate no effect either way.

The thing is, you have to complete all three rows before an ability stone becomes equippable. The odds of each attempt adding a facet, which is what it's called when battle engravings successfully activate a node, or a crack, which is what it's called when a negative engraving adds a node, are shown underneath the cost. Those odds go up after each failure to activate and down after each success. When the odds are high (in the 65-75 percent range), try to facet the engraving that's most important to you. When they drop down to 25 or 35 percent, try the negative engraving and hope it doesn't develop too many cracks. In-between, try the engraving that's less useful for you.

If you need Buy Lost Ark Gold, please visit MMOexp and this may sound like a lot of hassle and potential for downsides offsetting the bonuses, but ability stones do more than just alter your engravings. Each one gives a huge boost to your vitality, and that boost goes up the more successful facets any ability stone has. If you don't have an ability stone equipped, you'll be short on hit points for endgame activities.
