Season Gear Guide

Last Edited on : Jan 4, 2022, 14:05 (UTC+8)


- Season characters are restricted from using normal gear and can only equip “Naru” and “Tuvala” gear. 

- You can obtain and enhance Naru gear by completing the main questline. 

- You can obtain Tuvala gear by exchanging Naru gear or seasonal materials. 

- You can obtain materials to enhance your Tuvala gear from a variety of means such as defeating monsters or completing weekly and regional quests in monster zones.

Use Naru and Tuvala Gear on the Season Servers

Unlike normal characters, season characters can only equip and use gear with a special seasonal mark on the gear icons. 

Once a season character has been converted into a normal character through early graduation or automatically after a season has ended, they can use all kinds of gear without restrictions. 

Thus, season characters will start with Naru gear, then progress through PEN (V) Naru gear → Tuvala gear → PEN (V) Tuvala gear. 

You can obtain Naru gear from the main questline, and you can exchange Naru gear into Tuvala gear.

Enhance PEN(V) Naru Gear

Your first task upon logging into the season server will be to enhance your Naru weapons and defense gear up to PEN (V) enhancement grade. 


Naru gear are readily available for novice players, and, once enhanced to the maximum grade, can be exchanged into Tuvala gear.


You can obtain Naru gear from main questline rewards. 

To enhance Naru gear, you will need “Beginner Black Stones” that are also given out as main questline rewards. 


Once you enhance your Naru main weapon, sub-weapon, helmet, armor, gloves, and shoes to PEN (V), you can bring them to the NPC Fughar and exchange them into Tuvala gear. 

Enhancing Naru accessories such as a necklace, rings, earrings, and a belt are somewhat difficult. They also cannot be converted into Tuvala accessories, so we recommend you simply equip them without enhancing them to higher grades. 


Please refer to the following guide for more details on Naru gear. 

Enhance PEN (VTuvala Gear

Season characters can obtain Tuvala gear by either converting PEN (V) Naru gear or exchanging Tuvala Ore. 

Tuvala gear is exclusive to season servers and the best gear set for season characters.

You can enhance all Tuvala gear pieces including accessories up to PEN (V) grade, and you can use the gear for a “Guaranteed PEN (V) Boss Gear” questline upon graduating from the season server. 

Please refer to the following guide for more details on Tuvala gear.


To enhance Tuvala gear, you will need season-exclusive materials such as Time-filled Black Stones and Refined Magical Black Stones which can be obtained from a variety of means such as defeating monsters, completing weekly and regional monster zone quests, and Challenges.

Gathering Seasonal Materials

You can obtain Tuvala Orewhich can be exchanged for Tuvala gearas well as Time-filled Black Stones and Refined Magical Black Stones, which are used to enhance Tuvala gearonly from the season servers.

■ Defeat Monsters

“Time-filled Black Stones” can be obtained from all monster zones on the season server, and in greater quantities from Valencia, Kamasylvia, Drieghan, and O’dyllita territories. 

“Refined Magical Black Stones” and “Tuvala Ore” can also be obtained from defeating monsters in Valencia, Kamasylvia, Dreighan, and O’dyllita territories on the season server. 


Tuvala Ore, Time-filled Black Stones, and Refined Magical Black Stones each have certain monster zones where they drop in greater quantities. You can find out more from each item’s tooltip description. 


■ Season Weekly Quests

You can choose one of the “[Season Weekly] Stronger Tuvala Gear” quests found under Quests (O) → Recurring tab to obtain seasonal enhancing materials. 

You can only complete one Season Weekly quest per week and they reset on Thursdays at midnight.

Enhancing Tuvala Gear Tips

You may find the max durability of your Tuvala gear depleted and/or lacking the necessary enhancing materials to continue being enhanced. 


The following information will help you enhance your Tuvala gear more efficiently. 

Enhancing Tuvala Gear Tips (Click) 

Exchange your PEN (V) Naru gear for Tuvala weapons and defense gear. 


You can exchange your PEN (V) Naru gear for PRI (I) Tuvala gear, which lets you skip the process of enhancing Tuvala gear through 0 to +15 enhancement grades. 


Therefore, it is more efficient to exchange your PEN (V) Naru main weapon, sub-weapon, helmet, armor, gloves, and shoes into PRI (I) Tuvala gear. 



Upon completing your Awakening and/or Succession questline after reaching Lv. 56, you will be rewarded with your very own PRI (I) Tuvala awakening weapon. 

Utilize “Enhancement Chance(Stacks)” and “Naderr’s Band.” 


Enhancing any piece of gear utilizes a system of “Enhancement Chance,” where “stacks” are built over successive enhancement attempts. 


The higher the stack, the greater the chance for successfully enhancing a piece of gear. You can also increase your odds by exchanging Black Stones or using items such as Advice of Valks and Valks’ Cry. 


Failing enhancements will continuously increase your overall stack, which you may want to save to use for enhancing gear with lower success rates via Naderr’s Band. 


Please refer to the following guide for more details. 

Use Magical Refined Black Stones to enhance your Tuvala gear from DUO (II) → TRI (III). 


While using Magical Refined Black Stones will consume your gear’s max durability, they guarantee successful enhancement of your Tuvala gear up to TRI (III). 


You cannot use these stones from TET (IV) and onwards, so utilize these Magical Refined Black Stones especially for DUO (II) to TRI (III) enhancement to save your “Enhancement Chance” and “Time-filled Black Stones.” 



You cannot use the Magical Refined Black Stones to enhance Tuvala accessories. 

Use the Frozen Tides Black Stone to enhance from TET (IV) → PEN (V). 


You can obtain “Frozen Tides Black Stones” from the Season Pass or by completing the [Season] Atoraxxion: Vahmalkea. They guarantee successful enhancement of Tvuala gear up to PEN (V). 


Therefore, it is most effective to use these stones to enhance your Tuvala gear from TET (IV) to PEN (IV). 

Failing to enhance accessories will destroy them! Loads of Tuvala Ore is required!  


Unlike Tuvala weapons and defense gear, Tuvala accessories can only be enhanced with the same type of accessory. (Ex: Tuvala Rings require another Tuvala Ring to enhance) 


Therefore, you will need several of the same accessory type to enhance Tuvala accessories, which in turn will require a decent amount of Tuvala Ore. 

Obtain Advice of Valks through Fughar’s quests. 


Complete enhancement quests from Fughar to obtain Advice of Valks items. 


These are simple quests that require your season character to simply show Fughar a piece of Tuvala gear enhanced to the appropriate grade, so don’t miss out! 

Find a party for “Rift’s Echo”. 


The Rift’s Echo is a season-exclusive monster summon scroll. 


Use the Rift’s Echo to summon a random boss monster, who, once defeated, will award you with a variety of Tuvala gear that will help you in your seasonal journey. 


Rift’s Echo requires a full party to complete, so utilize server chat or the Find Party/Platoon function to find like-minded Adventurers to take the monsters down. 


Each party member may have a different number of Rift’s Echoes on them, so you should discuss within your party before proceeding with this content.

Use the appropriate Enhancement Chance to enhance your Tuvala gear. 


Many Adventurers utilize the following Enhancement Chance stacks when enhancing to certain grades. 


Your success rates may vary regardless of the recommended stacks. 

Enhancement Grade 

Weapons / Defense Gear 


PRI (I) 

10 (±5) 

PRI (I) -> DUO (II)  

20 (±10) 

20 (±5) 

DUO (II) -> TRI (III) 

30 (±10) 

30 (±5) 

TRI (III) -> TET (IV) 

40 (±10) 

35 (±10) 

TET (IV) -> PEN (V) 

60 (±15) 

40 (±10) 

Level up to obtain a PEN (V) Tuvala Earring and PEN (V) Tuvala Ring. 


You can obtain complete certain seasonal challenges by leveling up your season character. 


Reaching Lv. 60 will grant you a PEN (V) Tuvala Ring, and reaching Lv. 61 will grant you a PEN (V) Tuvala Earring, so we recommend that you only enhance one Tuvala Ring and Tuvala Earring to PEN (V) each.
