Buying Rings

If you buy a ring from an NPC or another player, sometimes that ring will "land" in your ring slot. If that happens, then your "brand-new" ring will no longer be "brand-new".

To prevent this, simply put a different ring in your ring slot. Most people will use a Wedding Ring or Crystal Ring since they are fairly easy to come by.

Now you will never accidentally wear a ring you are buying.

Note that this was changed in a recent technical update, and hence any ring bought/obtained will automatically go into your inventory and never your ring slot, even if it is empty.
