That's where it falls down. Ringlore makes no distinction on whether the Gold Ring Item in question can normally be tested for a specific type of Ring Special Item.Nameless thing wrote:5) Spirit ring cannot be played as a hero gold ring cannot be tested as spirit ring.
Any ring from your hand means exactly that. There is no result as such for the ring test because no roll is made; therefore, the effect text of Ringlore kicks in.Sage only, only playable at a site where "Information" is playable, and only if a character in his company has a Gold Ring. Play to test a Gold Ring. No roll (or draw) is used. The player may replace the Gold Ring with any ring from his hand (except for The One Ring). Playable only during site phase. Tap the sage and the site.
Ringlore cannot target a Minion Gold Ring Item.
It can replace a Hero Gold Ring Item with any ring from his hand. This is the current list of rings:
Ringlore as it is currently worded allows you to replace a gold ring with any of those items (including Mind Rings and Gold Rings, oddly enough).There are 7 types of rings: mind rings, gold rings, lesser rings, magic rings, Dwarven rings, spirit rings and the One Ring.
I'll be the first to admit that this is odd, but that's how the card reads.
