Ok, maybe this needs cleaned up some. Maybe not. But remove all that's not Ruby Ring??
- That or call it Ruby Equipment. Fenrir9 03:35, June 26, 2012 (UTC)
The only issue I really have with naming it Ruby Equipment, and this goes for most pages, is that for it to be an Equipment page like that, wouldn't it need more than just one piece of equipment like just armor or accessories? Wouldn't having it for as many types of equipment work? That, and Equipment pages are meant for more noteworthy stuff...then again, I guess I shouldn't say THAT since I'm the one that made some of these like Bronze, Iron, and Chocobo....might leave that in the Forum topic as well as about other types of equipment like Steel or something eh?
- I did not check how many other Ruby "insert equipment type" there is in the Final Fantasy series, can't really comment on that one. But Ruby Ring should be for Ruby Ring, I say purge what is not Ruby Ring. Armlet and cuirass are not rings. Unless its refered to the ring instead of armlet in the Japanese version of the Final Fantasy game where it came from. Fenrir9 03:54, June 26, 2012 (UTC)
Well that's ridiculous. Just because it doesn't fit the name or fit into the style of other articles?
This page is also ridiculous. There is no common theme. Low-ranked armor? Really? There is no such thing as low-ranked armor in FFX and it is not low-ranked in XII. What that comment is based on appears to be the FFIV series... which you can't comment as being a recurring theme throughout the series since it is only apparent in a sub-series.
We have a type of page for things that have no apparent theme. It's called a disambig. Just being an accessory in each appearance doesn't cut it for me, and I don't see why it should for anyone else either.
This being a parent adds nothing that the disambig couldn't. It's only purpose would be to comment/show that it serves the same purpose in all three FFIV games. JBed 04:03, June 26, 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, this page will just become a disambig then. It's a terrible parent page and I shouldn't have made it to begin with >___>
Remaking Page[edit source]
Enough to warrant a page methinks. Though here's the real question: Would Ruby Armlet fit or not? Ruby Ring (particularly in the IV saga) is considered an armlet after all, so there's that to consider.
(I know JBed is going to kill me for doing this again buuuut...).
Prevents Pig, or increases MDef, or increases STR and fire damage, or bestows Reflect. Better off a disambig I would say. 18.104.22.168 14:25, September 5, 2012 (UTC)
Alright, this needs looked at more. What all actually GOES on this page? Is FFI the same as FFIV? Can someone find out what all is the same as the other, and if it should be Ruby Ring or Ruby Armlet or whatever?
The Ruby Ring in IV (ルビーのゆびわ Rubī no Yubiwa) has the same name as FFXII (ルビーの指輪 Rubī no Yubiwa). But one prevents pig and one bestows Reflect, they're not alike and having the same name could be entirely coincidental.
FFI's is ルビーのうでわ Rubī no Udewa -- it's a bracelet and not a ring. Also it's not got much in common with IV because in FFI it's just part of a "[stone] Armlet" series. XII is more likely to be a reference to IV than IV is to I.
FFX's Ruby series of equipment is part of a series of gemstone abilities, and is for the ultimate magic defense equipment. Lulu who has "English rings" (but they're translated as "bangles") has the ルビーリング Rubī Ringu. Meanwhile Yuna, who has "Japanese rings", has the 紅玉の指輪 Kōgyoku no Yubiwa -- a very Japanese way to say Ruby Ring. But also probably a not reference to past games.
FFXI has ルビーリング Rubī Ringu is a fire-resistant ring. Unrelated.
Yuck, what a mess this is. I guess this won't get any page then. @_@;
Yeah looks like just unrelated accessories that happen to have the same gemstone. I think the FFXII Reflect connection is an allusion to Carbuncle's Ruby Light, since Carbuncle itself doesn't appear.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 20:25, February 22, 2019 (UTC)
