The wiki page for the scroll of remove curse says

The scroll of remove curse, when read, will uncurse worn or wielded items, loadstones and leashes in use.

(emphasis mine)

Does that only include items that I have actually wielded or Worn, or does it also include rings or amulets that I have Put on?


If we consult this guide, we can infer that:

  • An uncursed remove curse scroll uncurses everything equipped to you (Worn or Put), but not inventory items. However, if you wield an inventory item and read uncursed remove curse scroll, that item gets uncursed like as if it was equipped gear.

  • A blessed remove curse scroll uncurses everything you're carrying, unless it's inside a container, in which case it isn't affected (not in main inventory).

  • A cursed remove curse scroll does nothing (unless you're punished, in which case it unpunishes you, thus applies to to id you are using an uncursed or blessed remove curse scroll as well).

  • You know, you didn't say anything that is not in my question. I really want to know whether they meant "worn" in the formal sense of armor or the informal sense of things attached to your body. Also, wear is a capital W. – murgatroid99 Dec 16 '12 at 19:42
  • Its been a while since I've played this game, but I made some changes. I hope you find them satisfactory. – Krazer Dec 16 '12 at 20:13
  • The guide you linked to actually says the opposite of what you said: It includes amulets, rings, and eyewear in the list of things that the scroll effects. – murgatroid99 Dec 16 '12 at 20:15

    In short, yes the scroll of remove curse does remove the curse on rings and amulets. – Prasad Ajinkya Dec 17 '12 at 4:10

    "as if it was equipped gear" is a silly phrasing; if you wield an object it is equipped gear. – Wooble Dec 17 '12 at 12:07
