Item Transformation

The Rune Bottle item can change items you have. It costs 3500 gold, but is almost always worth it (except for food; I never used it for that). Here's a rundown of the upgrades etc. which the Rune Bottle item can effect. Note that some of the changes are two-way; e.g. you can change a Salamander's Ring to a Nymph's Ring and vice versa. Don't get confused; some of the transformation arrows are left to right to show the overall relationships between groups of items.

The one-way transformations are always upgrades; the new item is like the old item but better. (The only exception is Demon Seal, which has an extra side effect of disabling defensive posturing.)
