|“|| Ring of Free Action: Edventar's Gift|
This ring was given to the reef scavenger and hunter known only as Edventar by a group of aquatic elves long his friends. His help in routing the "Pirate Queen" Yenandra of Dambrath was instrumental in their survival, though Yenandra continues to be feared anywhere the water meets land.
While equipped, the ring bestows Free Action which behaves differently, depending on game versions.
- In the classic Baldur's Gate the ring can be used in conjunction with the Boots of Speed, with the boots still providing the doubled movement rate.
- In the Enhanced Edition and Baldur's Gate II the ring will render the character immune to any haste effect, same as the Free Action spell. It does remove a potentially existing stun status effect, but does not provide further immunity to it.
- Offensive Spin will still get an extra attack and other bonuses except for the movement speed change (while the ring must be unequipped to cast Defensive Spin).
- The ring is also equipped by several more characters, though marked as undroppable and unstealable.
Note: Only creatures that have it assigned to an inventory slot, and thus can actually make use of it, are listed.
- A version of Sarevok, who might appear in the first challenge at the Pocket Plane, Retribution.
- The Knights of the Order from the same challenge.
- A version of Tamoko, appearing in the Plane's second challenge, Possibilities.
- It's also carried by three Favoreds of Cyric during the third challenge, Cyric, God of Murder.
- In addition there are variants of the ring with different stats, such as immunities missing or added. Again, only those that are of use for their bearer are listed. If equipped by someone, they won't be dropped nor are they stealable.
