~ Perhaps theres a reason but I have a magical amethyst and i can not add it to an amethyst amulet. Is this a bug or simply not meant to be done? If anyone has any idea let me know...

Its not a bug, try it with a ring.

I don't have an amethyst ring nor do I want to place it in a ring. I'd like to put it in the amethyst amulet i have, so if it only works with rings it is a bug right? or am i just doing something wrong?

You need an amethyst amulet for that. Is that what you are trying?

Yes, I have an amethyst amulet, and i have a magical amethyst gem. I am not able to set the stone into the amulet no matter what I try...

Its a bug then. Magic gems are supposed to work with both rings and amulets.

Thanks for the answers. However, I am not familiar with reporting bugs, is there someone that is willing to report the problem?

Afaik, its not a bug. It is intended that gems only work with rings.

Exactly.

It is not intended that you put magical gems into amulets. If you think this might be a nice feature, please submit it to Mantis as feature request:

Also, think about an effect of such an enchantment. Raising attributes is restricted to rings.

Guess i'm off to find a ring :)

Thanks again for the help everyone, much appreciated....

Maybe you should take the amulets out of putting gems into trinkets book then.

Hairsplitting!

Nope ;-).

I'll edit the confusing line, replacing "trinkets" with "rings". The german version is more clear here.

Edit: Done at testserver. Will be active with very big update.

I see no problem in having amulets give attribute bonus as well, just like the rings.. Makes sense.
