One of the traders has a ring called the "Sunwalker's Gift". The description says that its jewel "parts all but the darkest of shadows". I expected this to be a light source when worn, but it doesn't seem to do anything. It also doesn't seem to grant the Light cantrip or anything else. Am I missing something, or is this ring just not functional?

Still doesn't work, wasted 1650 gold thinking my main human warrior would see better... sigh, nope.

That was something mentioned in the patch notes -- unfortunately it's easy to miss with the bad audio.

It's supposed to remove Disadvantage for attacking something that you cannot see well (poor lighting). Which would be useful for the human members of the party, but I haven't tested it yet.

In general, visibility, shadows, etc. still seem very buggy. Search around, you'll find a fair amount of discussion about that.

The ring works just fine already - it's always worked properly in my play-throughs at least. What it doesn't do is tell you anything at all about what it's doing - there's no indication that it's working unless you know what to look for.

What I found was that when my halfling character (no darkvision) was wearing the ring, she would never have disadvantage to attack her targets, despite a lack of light. When removing it, the disadvantage would return. Characters with darkvision didn't appear to gain any benefit. It doesn't visibly grant you darkvision, but it seems to have the effect of doing so in terms of targeting enemies, currently.

With Patch 4, the ring works properly, Gale sees as if he has Darkvision with it equipped, and does not get disadvantage.
