    no, accessories will be unchanged, only armor and weapons can downgrade if you have no crystals to lose. if you keep having some cheap crystals in your weapons/armor, they won't downgrade either.

    put atleast 4 cheap crystals in your gear and nothing will downgrade.
    accessories wont. they're safe!

    Please take this with a grain of salt, but I feel it should be mentioned. I can remember people saying they have had their gear downgrade even when crystals were slotted. This is not by my own experience, just comments I remember others making during similar discussions about gear downgrades and crystals protecting from it.

    I have no proof, as I've never done any testing, hell I've never come close to negative karma, so if someone has tested and is sure, I'll gladly admit I'm wrong. I'd just hate to see someone lose a TET on the off chance a downgrade can happen with crystals, just that's it's kind of rare.

    If you're feeling bold you can ask Dremlock, as I'm sure he's had plenty of experience with it. Good luck!

    this crystal meme is not verified. Only anecdotal.

    It can happen when you don't have enough crystals.
    when you die, the game decides (no idea how, probably rng) how many penalities you will take. if it says you will take 5 penalities but only have 4 crystals slotted, you will get one downgrade as well.

    as for this, i've never had more than 4 crystals broken either. but i get your point.
    i feel like 4 is the limit though as i have never lost more than 4, and been red for plenty enough time and been killed way more than i should have been! :P

    but who knows, maybe someone has actually lost some with crystals in?

    i have experienced item downgrade with gems in, but I haven't tested across all numbers of gems.
