Spirit Rings are the souls 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.
Spirit Rings are usually divided into categories based on their age.
- White : 10 Year Spirit Ring (十年)
- Yellow : 100 Year Spirit Ring (一百年)
- Purple : 1,000 Year Spirit Ring (一千年)
- 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, a Spirit Ring can also have a unique or a highly specialised colour based on its association. This can manifest as a blend of two colours, as a wrapping or a nimbus on a pre-existing Spirit Ring, or as a combination of the two. Some of them de facto represent a God Level Spirit Ring.
- Blue : Water (Sea God)
- Dark Grey : Death (Necromancer)
- Dark Red : Slaughter (Asura God)
- Gold : Light (Angel God)
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 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: Between 1,300 & 1,800 years old Spirit Beast
- 4th Spirit Ring: Between 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
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.
