Ring Engraving Guide

Ring Engraving is a way to add a random effect to your ring. This effect may be anything from +1 physical attack to something actually useful like +dexterity or +hp. You are only allowed to have 1 engravement bonus per ring (unless stated otherwise) and rank rings are also eligible for engravement.

Amulet Carving is a new feature added in the Sirens of War expansion (version 676). Information regarding this feature can be found below, in the section labeled 'Amulet Carving'.

Getting started:

First find the nearest 'Jewelcraftsman' NPC in Archosaur or any city. Select 'Ring Engraving'. A list will show up where you may choose the level of engraving you wish to place on a ring. You may view the random stat adds while hovering over each level or in the links below.

To engrave a ring you will need several materials which will be covered below. Keep in mind, each engravement is random and you are able to re-engrave rings, but it will overwrite the old engravement.

Example: You engrave a ring with +20 Physical attack. You re-engrave and lose that +20 physical attack and now you have +6 strength. You can then re-engrave over that +6 strength and you could get something like +metal resistance. It is totally random. It may take you several tries to get that +stat you want. The upside to this is that engraving is not a one time thing, making engraving very similar to refinement.

Materials needed:

Two materials needed are the commonly found Perfect Stone and Mirage Celestone. They can be purchased from various catshops, AH or farmed in several instances (Perfect Stones from chests at the end of FC; Mirages from Fairy Boxes in TT).

There are also three new materials that are needed to engrave a ring. One is Spectral Polish which is obtainable from any Jewelcraftsman NPC for the price of 10,500 coins. Another is Uncanny Ore which is obtainable with tokens through trade with a PW boutique agent (right next to hyper stones). 15 tokens gives you 3 ores. As of patch 560 Uncanny Ore is unable to be traded. The best way to make use of excess ore would be to engrave another ring. The third material needed for levels 8 and 9 of engravement is Ancient Emblem. Information regarding that shall be listed below.

Keep in mind, engraving levels 1 through 6 are available at any Jewelcraftsman NPC in Archosaur.
As of patch version 589 engravement is now available at all Jewelcraftsman NPCs.

Ring Engraving material requirements (Click the engraving links to view possible stat adds):

Engraving 1: Requires a lvl 3+ ring

1 Perfect Stone
1 Spectral Polish

Engraving 2: Requires a lvl 4+ ring

5 Perfect Stones
2 Spectral Polish

Engraving 3: requires a lvl 5+ ring

1 Mirage Celestone
3 Spectral Polish

Engraving 4: requires a lvl 9+ ring

1 Mirage Celestone
5 Spectral Polish
1 Uncanny Ore

Engraving 5: requires a lvl 10+ ring

1 Mirage Celestone
10 Spectral Polish
3 Uncanny Ore

Engraving 6: requires a lvl 11+ ring

1 Mirage Celestone
25 Spectral Polish
6 Uncanny Ore

Engraving 8 and 9 are available at the Forges located near Faction Base Entrance in (East) Archosaur. These levels require a new item called Ancient Emblems. They are attainable from Cosmos packs. Level 9 has a 95% chance of giving 1 stat and a 5% chance of giving 2 stats.

Engraving 8 (Superb): requires a lvl 11+ ring

1 Mirage Celestone
15 Uncanny Ore
1 Ancient Emblem

Engraving 9 (Immaculate): requires a lvl 11+ ring

1 Mirage Celestone
30 Uncanny Ore
3 Ancient Emblem


Amulet Carving

As of patch 676, Sirens of War expansion has added Amulet Carving to our +stat adding needs. This type of Engravement is not for rings, but instead for necklaces. You can find this new feature at the 'Contemplation Forge' in the North District of Archosaur (549, 675). Select 'Amulet Carving' from the forge to begin. First let us cover the new materials required for this feature:

Materials needed:

Spectral Polish and Uncanny Ore are materials you should be familiar with (described above). The two new materials are Supply Tokens and Seals of War.

Supply Tokens are obtainable through the new Nation Wars feature which is a capture the flag like pvp instance implemented with the last patch. The event takes place at 20:20-22:20 server time and more information on it can be obtained here.

Seals of War are crafted at the 'Contemplation Forge' from Supply Tokens. To craft one Seal of War you will need 50 Supply Tokens and 1,312,500 coin (1.32mil). Now that the costs are out of the way we can look to the mats and stats :D

Amulet Carving material requirements (click the carving links for possible stat adds):

Raw Jade: Self Cultivation (7) (randomly adds 1 stat) requires lvl 11+ neck

10 Spectral Polish
10 Uncanny Ore
14 Supply Tokens


Raw Jade: Family Management (8) (randomly adds 2 stats) requires lvl 12+ neck

100 Spectral Polish
100 Uncanny Ore
40 Supply Tokens
2 Seals of War


Raw Jade: Country Ruler (9) (randomly adds 3 stats)
requires lvl 14+ neck

500 Spectral Polish
500 Uncanny Ore
200 Supply Tokens
10 Seals of War


Pwdatabase link w/ the % chances for each add on. Amulet Carving is mistakenly labelled engraving at the bottom.

Author note:

Hope this is helpful. Enjoy your engraving! ;D

Update: 11/27, I have added information about Amulet Carving from the new expansion.

Special thanks:

to Asterelle, as usual.

to WangZi and badazmofo from DW server.

Tempest, Dynasty and the rest of Dramaweaver for making PWI fun again.

Special thanks to PWI development team for turning my once peaceful afk area of North arch into a mass dc area of doom. <3

    Nice guide.

    One thing you might mention is that the Uncanny Ore cannot be traded or sold once it has been made from 15 Perfect Tokens of Luck. This is probably fine for level 10+ and 11+ engravings, as the ores needed is a multiple of three, however for the level 9+ engraving, it means you will need to use 15 tokens just to get the one ore you need, while the other two ores will be left over. The only way you can get the value of the lost 10 tokens is to engrave other rings (or re-engrave your first ring).


    *PWI DEVS*

    Why not make the ratio 5 tokens for 1 uncanny ore?

    If not that, then at least make the uncanny ores trade enabled like almost everything else that can be exchanged for tokens. (The only other thing I know of that cannot be traded is the Supply Stash.)


    Good Luck!

    Thanks, I guess I didn't notice at first since I was engraving +10 and +11 rings.

    I'll make a note of it in the original post. Thanks ;D

    Thanks Kritty. And yeah, at first I wasn't going to bother with it, but I decided screenshots worked out nicely compared to a list format and wasn't nearly as time consuming either.

    so if you actually do this and get a really **** status like evasion on a magic ring. Is there a way to remove it and try again. +37 evasion on a magic ring is what I call ****

    Yes, if you just re-engrave it overwrites the old engravement. Like an example, I got +wood defense on my rank ring the first time, then I did it again and got +1% phys reduction, then I kept going and eventually got something I was left satisfied with (+dex).

    It may take a while until you get an add you are happy with.

    Just a heads up in a few months they are adding 2 more levels of engraving:

    http://w2i.wanmei.com/news/gamenews/20110923/62368.shtml

    These levels will let you get 2 stats instead of one so you could get Dex+11 twice for 22 dex. Pretty hawt.

    Thanks Asterelle. I figured the feature would eventually be expanded upon. Nice seeing the 2 stats thing. The combinations will be fun to try out, though likely costly.

    In my experience it is completely random. I'm sure there are various % chances that someone can probably find in a file or test out, but I myself will be doing no such thing.

    I've semi-quit until at least the next major content update, but I should be updating this guide still. Hope you all are still enjoying engraving and other things in pwi ^^

    I noticed it first in-game and then in this guide: where is the level 7 engraving? Or why is it not available?

    To add to the confusion pwdatabase.com lists 2 sheets of level 6 engraving, one of which has different bonuses and material requirements than the other level "6".

    I am asking because I am aiming for maximum STR on my ring engraving without using emblems which I cannot afford right now or in short term future.

    I'm not quite sure to be honest.

    I noticed this as well, and assumed it was some type of error. I guess it just got translated like that.

    To the best of my knowledge, +7 is the highest you can obtain without the use of Emblems.

    Just curious, the picture you show for the possible Engraving 6 stats does not match the stats shown in the pwdatabase link. Has an update changed which engraving level gives which stats?

    EDIT: Ok, so actually pwdatabase gives two sections for Engraving 6. But the two also require different mats. So I guess the game understands what you want based on the mats you have?

    There's two places you can engrave, a jewelcraftsman or one of the forges by the Arch faction base manager. That's the difference between the two Engraving 6 sections; one's for the jewelcraftsman, one for the forge.

    Guide update. I have added Amulet Carving and tweaked a few other things as well.

    If I am missing out on anything else new please feel free to inform me.

    A request to VenusArmanio or another moderator, if you would be so kind as to change the guide name from 'Ring Engraving Guide' to 'Ring Engraving/Amulet Carving Guide', I would be most thankful.

    If someone can supply the links to the pwdatabase information for Amulet Carving I would be most appreciative.
