For the magic prefix, see Ruby
Like all other gems, Rubies grant bonuses that are related to their color. The red in Rubies signify the Elemental power of Fire. Socketing a ruby in Weaponry adds Fire damage, while Shields earn Fire resistance, and in Helms and Body Armor it increases life, which, in-game, is also associated with the color red.
- The name "Ruby" is derived from the Greek word for "blood:" i.e. "Rubinus." Its etymology as a "blood stone" is reflected in game, in which the Ruby is associated with an increase to life.
