Something I just noticed, with the touchstone, the different rings seems to be leaving different colors. This could definitely help in ring id! Nowhere on the internet do I see this mentioned, am I missing something? I'm playing vulture's eye. 71.243.123.146 18:47, October 5, 2010 (UTC)BlackSheep

It doesn't help, because the different rings leave different colors based on their randomized appearance. That is, a diamond ring will leave the same color streaks be it a ring of polymorph or a ring of teleportation. I suppose a zen player might find it useful to identify iron rings, but other than that it doesn't give you any information you don't already have. -Ion frigate 20:02, October 5, 2010 (UTC)

#rub vs [a]pply

on this page and throughout the rest of the wiki, it is suggested that the way to use a touchstone is to #rub it. isn't [a]pply more usual? --194.116.198.179 12:53, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
