Fire Ring Mechanics

Postby Jalapenotrellis » Sunday November 24th, 2019 11:11pm

For the Fire Ring artifact dropped in Quest 4: The Dwarven Forge, it looks like it can only be used to block chaos magic fire spells and not the heat from The Dwaven Forge. That is fine. Since it isn't a spell and is more of a potion(?), I assume the wearer / the one who has the beautiful Fire Ring adorn his finger could still defend normally against Chaos Spell: Fire of Wrath or Chaos Spell: Ball of Flame and if he fails to roll a :roll5: or :roll6: , the Fire Ring could be an option to reduce the damage that hits (if used immediately like a magic shield)? It seems very similar to the Venom Antidote or Anti-Poison Quill--specialized item to reduce certain kinds of damage immediately instead of using a harder-to-get / more expensive panacea potion.

(I imagine it looks pretty and magical, perhaps with a ruby that glows when it stores the fire within it when caught sort of like an item enchanted to absorb a certain kind of magic)

Actually, if I remember correctly, I think in the European version, the ring does protect its wearer from the heat of the forge. It's uncertain why this was left out in the American version. The ring already has little use, but I suppose it'll come in handy if that hero draws a Fireburst trap from the Treasure deck in Wizards of Morcar...

the Fire Ring is an artifact from the US version only. there is no Fire Ring in the UK version.
The card explains: "protect the wearer from any 2 CHAOS FIRE SPELL". So the wearer is not protected against the fire coming out from the Forge.
I think it automatically protect the hero, so he doesn't have to roll any die. If a fire spell is cast against the ring wearer, the ring works automatically and the hero will not try to defend at all.

Huh... odd. Thank you for pointing that out Lesto. I thought I read it somewhere that it protects from the fire in this room. Perhaps I'm thinking of Phoenix's version or something... my bad... again.
