Signets were first introduced by GM Itzel via the merchant Periope. Customizations and unlockings have been sought after by many adventurers, as have special signet kits that contain a fully customized allotment of supplies.

Signet Rings

Signet rings are customizable rings that work with the paper and wax sold at shops like Wax Eloquent in Ta'Illistim as well as other special merchant events such as Ebon Gate. The design may be customized by a willing merchant and will in turn be what appears embossed into the wax.

The signet is made of silver and has a design of a peacock pavonated engraved into its face.
