A ring that slightly reduces any water damage sustained by the wearer. The stone residing in its center evokes the image of a crystalline drop of rain, and it has the ability to weaken the power of water. However, it cannot completely protect the wearer from water attacks, nor absorb their energy. The refined designs of these elemental rings and their efficiency as equipment make them the perfect present for aspiring young mages.
Coral Ring (さんごのゆびわ, Sango no Yubiwa?), also known as Water Ring (水の指輪, Mizu no Yubiwa?), NulTide Ring, Blue Ring, and Aqua Ring, is a recurring accessory in the series. It usually absorbs Water-elemental attacks, making it useful on very few bosses.
Ring infused with the power of water.
The Coral Ring is a rare accessory that absorbs Water-elemental attacks and can be bought in Istory in World 1 or the Phantom Village in World 3 for 50,000 gil. It can be found behind a waterfall in the cave area of the Interdimensional Rift, or dropped from Yellow Dragons.
It is an essential piece of equipment for fighting the superboss Shinryu, as his opening move is a Water-elemental attack. It also grants +5 Defense, Magic Defense, and Magic Evasion, as well as nullifying Fire-elemental attacks. However, it also makes the wearer weak to Lightning-elemental attacks as well.
Ring adorned with corals.
The Coral Ring absorbs Lightning-elemental attacks contrary to its earlier incarnations. It can be obtained early in the game if Freya wins the Festival of the Hunt, and can be synthesized for 1200 gil, a Lightning Staff, and a Rod. It also grants +1 Speed, Magic Defense, and Spirit and +2 Magic, and teaches the abilities Insomniac, Lancer, and Man Eater. All characters are able to equip this.
Blue Ring is an accessory that provides +4 Magic, the ability to cast Water, and halves Water-elemental damage taken. In addition, when one is given to a creature, it can learn Water Ward. It can be bought for 3,000 gil at Besaid (any chapter except Chapter 4), found at Cavern of the Stolen Fayth (Chapter 3), dropped from Amorphous Gel and Haunt, stolen from Protean Gel, Sahagin Chief (normal and Oversoul), and Tentacles (rare), bribed from Amorphous Gel (3,892 gil), Dinictus (7,500 gil), and Tentacles (10,120 gil), as a possible prize for recalibrating the Thunder Plains towers, and as a possible reward for dispatching a level 2 Chocobo to Mushroom Rock Road.
Its base version gives -9 Melee Accuracy in exchange for +9 Ranged Accuracy, as well as -3% Magic Damage Taken. The high-quality version (called a Merman's Ring) gives +10 Ranged Accuracy for only -8 Melee Accuracy, and grants -4% Magic Damage Taken.
Aqua Ring is an accessory that grants resistance to water by 20-30%, depending on it's level, and upgrades to the Riptide Ring by using the Cobaltite item. Aqua Rings can be found in the Rain-spotted Vale area of the Sunleth Waterscape and the Nutriculture Complex area of Palumpolum.
