Talk:Blood Cursed Ring of Strength (5e Equipment)

From D&D Wiki

I propose adding "needsbalance" and "wording" maintenance templates to this item for the following reasons:

- This item can kill a low-level PC without them attuning to it, for example by merely testing the properties like described in the DMG, p. 136 " Identifying a Magic Item". For example, a wizard or sorcerer of the 5th level is more likely to die than to survive the initial hit point loss.

- On higher levels, the magic item only confers a minor disadvantage but grants a strength score exceeding the limit of what is to be the apex of possible strength, a limit set for deity, demon princes , etc. Compare PHB, p. 173.

- what exactly does entail repeating the curse? Do you roll the damage to increase your strength again? Considering even a strength score of 8 is guaranteed to be increased to 34, the reasons for doing so seem unclear. Does the ring transform into a gauntlet when you reach a strength of 34 the first time the curse activates too?

I agree with the proposal (34 Strength? Lolwut?) and as such I've added the appropriate templates. Quincy (talk) 10:35, 16 February 2019 (MST)
