Do we need the terminology clarification?

Simply put, the Abuse of Terminology section seems a bit unnecessary and pedantic to me. Does anyone else feel like it should be there? - Crawldragon (talk|rog) 02:44, 4 February 2015 (UTC)

Mentioning the terminology issue seems fine with me, but I agree that it doesn't deserve a whole section of its own. I've edited the article to turn it into a footnote. —Ilmari Karonen (talk) 15:37, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

"Otherwise, you can at least force yourself to transform back into human form by throwing weapons upwards so that they hit. When your hp reaches zero, you'll transform back to normal." Is there a citation for this? Sounds questionable and seemed way too dangerous to actually try. --Bray298 (talk) 17:17, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

Werethings and rings

While playing version 3.6 and wearing a ring of invisibility, I was bitten by a werewolf. I got the "You feel feverish" message, followed immediately by "You can't handle your ring of invisibility anymore! Your body seems to unfade..." (I ate a spring of wolfsbane next, so never did transform to a werewolf.)

Is this new? I couldn't find anything relevant in the 3.6 changelog. Funcrunch (talk) 17:41, 5 January 2016 (UTC)

It was a silver ring, not anything special to the ring of invisibility. Becoming a were-creature calls retouch_equipment, which is used to prevent demons/werecreatures from using silver items, and from keeping intelligent artifacts when changing alignment. This does appear to be a new function as well; I don't think 3.4.3 had anything similar. -- Qazmlpok (talk) 18:07, 5 January 2016 (UTC)
