      I was stoked to use this ring until I saw how much HP it removed. I put quite a bit more points into VGR than most caster builds recommend and it still took me down to an incredibly short bar. Unless you’re good at kiting enemies and never using melee (which is almost impossible/tedious), this ring is NOT worth it

        Spell use counts are rounded up using this ring. That means that a 1-use spell WILL get a second use even with the +0 ring. A fairly decent trade for 20% hp.
