Gold-banded ghezyte jewelry

Gold-banded ghezyte jewelry was introduced as an update to the Ghezyte chelioboros item quest reward first released at Ebon Gate 2017. At Ebon Gate 2021, the ability to convert the item's appearance and abilities, along with its deity, was made available as part of the quest. It is a self-charging item that has different abilities based on whether one has completed the yearly quest and/or converted to the deity Imaera. Similar to the ghezyte chelioboros item, the amount of favor gained for it allows its various upgrades. The first year being 1000 followed by 2000 for the second year. Favor is garnered by doing the various Caligos Isle yearly quest(s). There is a cost of 250,000 silver to purchase the item from the chest when available on Caligos Isle. Once purchased, the item is attuned to the character that picked it up.

Note: The verbs for each year are unlocked automatically each year, and are not tied to favor gain. There are no year 5 verbs available for quest items that have been converted to other deities.

The item can be rotated between four various worn locations via the PROD verb. Those four locations include wrist(bracelet), finger(ring), neck(choker), and ankle(anklet).

The LOOK/TAP of the item is: a gold-banded ghezyte (noun) with tiny malachite vines. The SHOW is:

Several delicate burnished gold bands, each etched with a tiny sheaf pattern, overwhelm the chelioboros ghezyte links that form the base of this (item). Interwoven between ghezyte and gold are malachite leaves inlaid with topaz blossoms surrounding a lion-maned, shaggy Caligos eagle intaglio.

Verb First Third

MOCK Feeling persnickety, you turn a mocking gaze upon the chelioboros-shaped, ghezyte links forming the basis of your (item). You recall the relative ease at which this deity-by-proclamation had power usurped from it, but suddenly, the scent of fresh-hewn grains fills your senses and a tiny vine twists out of (item), tightening around you.

Feeling chastised, you glance back down at your (item) and realize it looks completely normal. (Character) gazes down at (his/her) (item) with a slightly mocking glance.
