Spirit Rings are the soul cores released by Spirit Beasts following their death, sacrifice, or contract with humans. The Spirit Ring can only be absorbed by the person who delivers the final blow and kills it and should be at a Rank (Rank 10, 20, 30, etc.) to be able to absorb it.
The first six spirit rings not only provides techniques to the spirit master after they absorb, it also nourishes the spirit bones in the spirit master's body. The six spirit rings are responsible for the head, body, limbs, and growth of the six spirit bones. The 7th spirit ring is considered the most important spirit ring because it can decide whether or not a spirit master becomes a Titled Douluo. Because of this, it is also called the Titled Spirit Ring. The higher the quality, the better chances a spirit master can become a Titled Douluo.
Spirit Rings are usually divided into categories based on their age.
- White : 10 Year Spirit Ring (十年)
- Yellow : 100 Year Spirit Ring (百年)
- Purple : 1,000 Year Spirit Ring (千年)
- Black : 10,000 Year Spirit Ring (万年)
- Red : 100,000 Year Spirit Ring (十万年)
- Gold : 1,000,000 Year Spirit Ring (百万年)
However, In the case of a million-year-old spirit rings, it may appear in different colors depending on the attribute.
(Ex: Iceblue, Dark Red Gold, Dark Grey, Green Gold, etc.)
Orange Spirit Rings Edit
The Spirit Rings, given by Spirit Soul of the "10 Great Ferocious Beasts" or any soul beasts with at least 200,000 years old, help develop the Spirit Master as a whole and can bring unbelievably great benefits to the Spirit Master's body itself.
In addition, the Spirit Souls of "10 Great Ferocious Beasts" or any soul beasts with at least 200,000 years old, give at least two spirit skills to Spirit Master, the same as a 100,000 years old ring. And in addition, the Orange-Grade Spirit Soul gives Spirit Master a red/orange Spirit Ring of over 200,000 years old, or 2 to 5 orange gold Spirit Rings.
1,000,000 Years Old Spirit Ring's Color Edit
A Spirit Ring can also have a unique or highly specialized color based on its association. This can manifest as a blend of two colors, as a wrapping or a nimbus on a pre-existing Spirit Ring, or as a combination of the two. Some of the de facto represent a God Level Spirit Ring.
- Iceblue: Water (Sea God)
- Dark Grey: Death (Necromancer & Huo Yuhao)
- Dark Purple : 'Demonic' Slaughter (Rakshasa God)
- Dark Red: Slaughter (Asura God)
- Gold: Light (Angel God)
- Gold: Power of Bloodline (Tang Wulin & Golden Dragon King)
- Green Gold : Nature (Child of Nature)
- Rose Gold : Destiny (Three Eyed Golden Lion)
- White Gold : Mental (Daydream Ice worm)
Optimal Spirit Rings According to Rank Edit
There is an optimal age of Spirit Ring for every bottleneck that identifies the oldest possible Spirit Ring that can be absorbed without significant risks. Spirit Master can naturally absorb younger Spirit Ring, but the absorption of an older Spirit Ring can result in heavy injuries or even in death upon rejection.
However, there have been a rare few cases of Spirit Masters who successfully absorbed Spirit Rings beyond the optimal age. It is noteworthy that all Spirit Masters who have accomplished this were either born a Spirit Beast–Human hybrid (e.g., Tang San), or had their body modified into one (e.g., Huo Yuhao).
- 1st Spirit Ring: Less than 423 years old Spirit Beast
- 2nd Spirit Ring: Less than 764 years old Spirit Beast
- 3rd Spirit Ring: Less than 1,300 - 1,800 years old Spirit Beast
- 4th Spirit Ring: Less than 3,000 - 5,000 years old Spirit Beast
- 5th Spirit Ring: Around 12,000 years old Spirit Beast
- 6th Spirit Ring: Less than 20,000 years old Spirit Beast
- 7th Spirit Ring: Between 30,000 ~ 50,000 years old Spirit Beast
- 8th Spirit Ring: Between 50,000 ~ 100,000 years old Spirit Beast
- 9th Spirit Ring: More than 100,000 years old Spirit Beast
Optimal Spirit Ring Combination Edit
- "Soul Land I" & "Soul Land II" : Yellow 2, Purple 2, Black 4, Red 1
- "Soul Land III" : Purple 4, Black 4, Red 1
- "Soul Land IV" : Black 6, Red 3
Here, by going into the Spirit Ascension Platform, you can increase the age or strengthen your Spirit Souls, respectively.
Depending on the owner's capability, it is possible to even strengthen it to 100,000 years.
By using the Platform, the maximum that a spirit master could theoratically reach is : Red8, Gold 1
But all of this is but a rough guide however. The true factor to that determines what the maximum age of a spirit ring that could be added is the spiritual power of a person. Every person has a set amount of mental capacity or "mental space" which the spirit ring(s) in question will occupy, where the amount of space the ring will occupy will increase with the ring's age. Regardless of the rings themselves, if there is enough space, the ring will be accepted into the martial soul (assuming its attributes don't clash with that of the martial soul itself). And although one's cultivation greatly increases one's mental space, it is ultimately independent of it.
Soul shock is a special ability that arises when a spirit beast older than 10,000 years is dead, but its soul is yet to be dissipated. If your mind is not matured and cannot decrease the soul shock from the ring, you will become mentally retarded and have the mental capacity of a 2 year old if you attempt to absorb the spirit ring.
Absorbing a Spirit Ring Edit
This process can be divided into four steps:
- Ring Destruction
- Ring Combat: Need enough spirit energy to withstand it or the spirit master will die
- Ring Dissolution: Need enough spiritual power to withstand it or the spirit master will die
- Ring Internalization: Need enough physical power to withstand it or the spirit master will die
