Rings of Lumnis Graphic

The Needle of Pentas is situated on the Isle of Ornath, and where scholars and adventures converge for the trials of the Rings of Lumnis. Each of the five Rings of Lumnis offers unique challenges to solve! The five rings are Planar, Spiritual, Elemental, Chaos, and Order, and rewards from each will be tracked on a powerful relic received upon entry to The Needle. As trials are completed, the relic will grow more powerful.


Rings of Lumnis is a SimuCoins pay event that is opened to attendees on a limited release.

The quest has been ran on the following dates so far:

  • April 20 - 29, 2018
  • April 19 - ??, 2019 (tentatively scheduled)

Quest Info

When you use QUEST to be transported to the Needle of Pentas, you'll be confined to this area of the Isle of Ornath. There is some exploration that anyone can take part in, whether you want to participate in the event or not. There are five teleportation disks, Planar, Spiritual, Elemental, Chaos, and Order, that will bring you to Liabo. Each section will have a ring you enter which is where the trials take place. This is where you'll need a scholar's card and a brooch (the relic). You are awarded an increment to your brooch upon entering the puzzle area, win, lose, or surrender. The increment is only good for the "ring" you're entering. For example, entering Planar will increment the Planar benefit by +1. If you want to increment the Elemental benefit, you'll need to visit the Elemental "ring" to try your knowledge (and maybe luck) there.

Successfully completing both puzzles and trivia will award a prize on top of the experience. The common prize will be lightening notes. The uncommon prize will be deepening notes of different varieties. And a rare prize will be an RPA orb. If you have a free hand, it will be delivered right to you. If you don't, it will be on the ground. Hopefully they are both entertaining and challenging as well.

For additional help in completing the various puzzles and trivia found within the trials, please visit Research:Rings of Lumnis - SPOILERS.

The brooch is a pin worn item that has five benefits. The benefits can be changed at this event via the TURN verb an unlimited amount of times. The brooch can be set to another benefit once a month outside of the Rings of Lumnis event. To change it to something outside of the event, you will need to make your way to the DragonSpine Fane and seek the niche dedicated to Lumnis there. (Lich Room ID: [Zul Logoth, Ancient Passage - 26072]) You will have an hour after you make the decision to change it if you want to change it back, but after that, there is a month cooldown. The brooch also unlocks verbs that do cosmetic changes to your character as well as additional messaging for your relic after completing a number of increments to your brooch.

The brooch can be upgraded quite a bit. It starts out gaining benefits very rapidly, but slows downs as the potency becomes stronger. Planar, Spiritual, and Order take the total you have and directly add it to the benefit. Elemental is a bit different in that the number translates to a percent bonus where +100 equals 10 (always rounding down). Chaos will randomly select one of the other benefits with a chance to be up to 10% more of a bonus.

The brooch MUST be activated to use. Spiritual is instantly used. The others stays active for thirty (30) minutes. The brooch starts off at 1x/day, but with many runs, you can begin to gain additional uses. Gaining extra uses takes the entire's brooch's progress into account, not just the specific benefits, as does unlocking verbs. Don't worry about memorizing the numbers. We have a detailed ANALYZE on the item that will tell you exactly where you are with the benefits.

The brooch is account attuned (only one allowed per account), but passing the brooch off is completely your responsibility. The cooldown resets at midnight. ANALYZE provides much information, such as: the unlocked verbs, the number of times it has been used today, and the currently selected orb (also available via LOOK).

If you need to respec which benefit you've assigned runs to on your brooch, you can do so by speaking to the NPC at the center of the zone and they charge 50k silver per run that is reassigned.

A lithe giantkin monk nods slowly and says, "You want to know more about changing the allocations of your trials? I am able to do this for you as long as you're holding the brooch in your right hand. In addition, there will be a charge for my time. For every rank that I transfer, it will cost you 50,000 silvers. It's a painless process on your end, and all you have to do is ASK MONK ABOUT EXCHANGE <# of ranks> <RING to move from> <RING to move to>."

Dyannae continues, "I will ask your approval first before making any changes to your item."
