When you deconstruct jewelry, you will only ever obtain a Pulverized form of its Trait material, which you must refine into a usable form.
Upgrade Materials Jewelry Crafting
In order to upgrade rings and necklaces, crafted or looted, you need to use a Jewelry Crafting Station and have the required materials.
- Fine (Green) Quality
- Superior (Blue) Quality
- Epic (Purple) Quality
- Legendary (Gold) Quality
You can acquire upgrade materials by refining Dust into Ounces. When refining Dust, you have a chance to acquire Grains of the different upgrade materials. You must refine 10 Grains in order to acquire a Bar, and you can use Bars to upgrade your necklaces and rings at a Jewelry Crafting Station.
You can also acquire Grains by deconstructing jewelry of the same quality.
Stat Difference of Jewelry Quality
Here are the values that you will get for extra Magicka or Stamina.
- 790 Green
- 820 Blue
- 840 Purple
- 870 Gold
So for example a magicka setup:
- 2610 Magicka – Player 1 wearing full gold jewelry
- 2520 Magicka – Player 2 wearing full purple jewelry
As you can see the only difference between gold and purple jewelry is 90 extra magicka.
