    EVEN IN THE CURRENT JAPANESE METAGAME, Hero Rings are still widely employed due to providing great bonuses and being comparatively easier to farm than other available accessory alternatives. There are better accessories, but none as easily available as the Hero Ring. This guide will show you everything you need to know about them and how to become a hero!

    RECIPE: HERORING

    10 Ice Megacrysts
    [​IMG]
    10 Fire Megacrysts
    [​IMG]
    3 Silver Ores

    4,000 Gil
    72 HOURS CRAFTING TIME

    HOW TO OBTAIN: The recipe for Hero Ring is obtainable by completing 30 Achievements. For more information and tips regarding achievements, refer to JayLovesTea's General Achievement Thread (And How To!).





    [​IMG]

    The materials needed to craft Hero Rings are obtained from Harvest Points in certain Exploration Maps in the Lanzelt region. Be prepared to dedicate a considerable amount of time and energy to farm them at this stage of the game.

    [​IMG] ICEMEGACRYSTS
    Ice Megacrysts may be found at Harvest Nodes in the Wolfsfang Peak Exploration. The drops are semi-rare, so be prepared to spend a bit of time and energy in here to gather all 10.

    [​IMG] FIREMEGACRYSTS
    Fire Megacrysts may be found at Harvest Nodes in the Zadehl Westersand Exploration. The drops are semi-rare, so be prepared to spend a bit of time and energy in here to gather all 10.

    [​IMG] SILVERORES
    Silver Ores are common crafting materials that may be found in any exploration of the Lanzelt region. By the time you are finished farming the necessary megacrysts, you'll have more than enough Silver Ores in your possession.

    I hope this little guide answered most the questions you have about Hero Rings, but feel free to ask any questions you may still have about them.

    Yep, it takes a while. I spent 100 lapis to unlock a second slot so I can craft 2 at the same time

    Hi, would like to enquire on the status boost that is added from the hero ring.
    Is the 10% boost came from the character based stat? Or does it come from the total stat ?

    I crafted one, and equip it to Exdeath, but only boost the MAG around 11 points, and that's for max level 5* Exdeath >.<

    That's the average boost to 5* units, yeah, and 11 mag per ring is better than any accessory can give at the moment. But don't forget the boosts are a percentage, which will make the rings even more effective on 6* units later on.

    I am currently farming for the materials.
    Yes it's quite daunting and boring.

    So to breathe some fresh air into game and take away the boredom, I am using my third-stringers to farm for the mats.

    Since this post still shows up as the top result when looking up Hero's Ring on Google, figured I'd respond with one little update. With Dirnado having been released, Maranda Coast has become the best spot to farm Ice Megacryst. Still working on understanding how pulls work, but I get 1-5 per run except that it seems like every third run I get nothing...not sure if is supposed to work like that or if it's just how rng worked for me the 100+ times I ran it.

    According to this there are higher drop rates for Fire Megacrysts in Dwarves Forge and Ice Megacrysts in Kolobos Marsh.
    Not completely sure how accurate it is, though. Sample size seems decent.

    the percentage may even be higher , but the amount of nrg spend is greater , and kolobos and marsh has more drops different, which does not make it better than wolfsfang peak , the same is valid for Zadel , look carefully ...

    Zadel and kolobos marsh has been best for me. So easy to grab the drop points and get out. Kolobos has five drop points all along the way on a short map. Ive had much better luck there with ice than in the snow. You can run both of these maps in a few minutes. Now that there are no mog cakes to make, who wants to spend forever wandering around?
