Online:Ritual of Mara
The Ritual of Mara can be performed at any Shrine to Mara. It requires a Pledge of Mara, a Crown Store item that can also be obtained by purchasing the Imperial Edition. The pledge must be quickslotted to activate, and will send your partner a notification to begin the ritual. Should they accept, both of you will receive a Ring of Mara, which results in an experience bonus when you group together.
A character can perform the Ritual of Mara with up to eight other characters.
Players who copied their account to console after using a Pledge of Mara on PC were allowed to keep their rings, but the experience bonus will only work on console if their partners also purchased an account copy.
