Event: Seashells on the Seashore

Are they buried in the sand? Lurking in the rock pools? Or being carried around in bosses’ pockets? Just where do you find the prettiest seashells? Go on the hunt for Arborea's seashells between Tuesday, 25th July and Tuesday, 22nd August 2017. Simply right-click to upgrade them, and the very best shells will even be transformed into arcane reliquaries. Open one of these reliquaries and you'll have a chance to pick up a Liberation Scroll or up to 1000 Masterwork Alkahest!

Smart Box: Gold Shimmer Bikini and Shirt

Seashell Details

There are eight different types of seashell in total. The different seashell ranks indicate how rare they are. Viridian Seashells are the lowest grade seashells, and hence also the easiest to collect. The rarest seashells are those of rank eight: Prismatic Seashells of the Stargazer.
Once you have a seashell in your inventory, simply right-click to use and attempt to transform it into an even more beautiful variety. Depending on the type, you'll receive different items from your shell.

(Unique) Viridian Seashell Either transforms into a Cerulean Seashell or crumbles into a Brittle Shell Piece when used.

Cerulean Seashell Either transforms into a Celeste Seashell or crumbles into a Brittle Shell Piece when used.

Celeste Seashell Either transforms into a Vermilion Seashell, a Masterwork Alkahest, or crumbles into two Brittle Shell Pieces when used.

Vermilion Seashell Either transforms into a Onyx Seashell, a Spellbind, or crumbles into two Brittle Shell Pieces when used.

Onyx Seashell Either transforms into a Seashell of Glowing Lava, a Master Enigmatic Scroll, or crumbles into three Brittle Shell Pieces when used.

Seashell of Glowing Lava Either transforms into a Glass Seashell of Brilliance or an Arcane Reliquary of the Duskhaven.

Glass Seashell of Brilliance Either transforms into a Prismatic Seashell of the Stargazer or an Arcane Reliquary of the Silverwaves.

Prismatic Seashell of the Stargazer Either transforms into an Arcane Reliquary of the Golden Sun or can be transmuted into an Arcane Reliquary of the Harvest Moon with the help of a Sand-Encrusted Argon Artifact.

The first five seashells can crumble into Brittle Shell Pieces upon use – however, 15 pieces can be transformed into a new seashell again by right-clicking.

Brittle Shell Pieces Right-click to combine 15 Brittle Shell Pieces and receive a new Unique Viridian Seashell.
