Attunement reset clears a character's elemental attunement, allowing ATTUNE SET to be used again. Unlike other character reset functions where a potion is simply consumed (e.g. fixstats), attunement reset is accomplished through a quest. The first reset for any character takes considerably less effort than subsequent resets.
- Step 1
- Step 2
Bind the shard to the character by killing any elemental creature while wearing the shard.
- Step 2A (for characters who have reset at least once)
On a character's first run through the quest, elemental souls are not required to be collected in order to enter, aside from that initial one to bind the shard. However, with each successful attunement reset, the number of souls required for re-entry will increase illustrated by the formula below.
In order to make progress towards the required number of souls, elemental creatures killed must be within ten levels of the character. LOOKing at or casting Elemental Detection (405) at the shard will indicate progress.
- Step 3
Seek out a point of elemental instability with the same elemental attunement as the character (use ATTUNE SENSE).
- Step 4
Make sure the character is wearing the shard and PUSH INSTABILITY WITH SHARD. The character will then be transported into a special instance of the Elemental Confluence where a powerful elemental awaits for battle. This area of the Confluence has no level restriction, and the elemental will be an appropriate level foe for the character. If victorious, the shard will shatter to dust and the character will be awarded the opportunity to ATTUNE to a new element.
If the character succumbs to the elemental or retreats, a penalty will be deducted from the shard. The amount deducted is illustrated by the formula below:
