Ioun stones are small flawless gems that, when activated, imbue the owner with increased ability scores or an improved armor class. Only one ioun stone may be active at any one time.

There are 7 different types of ioun stones:

  • ISBlue The blue ioun stone increases the owner's wisdom by 2.
  • ISPale Blue The pale blue ioun stone increases the owner's strength by 2.
  • ISScarlet and Blue The scarlet and blue ioun stone increases the owner's intelligence by 2.
  • ISDeep Red The deep red ioun stone increases the owner's dexterity by 2.
  • ISDusty Rose The dusty rose ioun stone increases the owner's armor class by 1.
  • ISPink The pink ioun stone increases the owner's constitution by 2.
  • ISPink and Green The pink and green ioun stone increases the owner's charisma by 2.


NotesEdit

ISCharacter

A character with the pink and green ioun stone active

  • Introduced in Hordes of the Underdark.
  • Ioun stones are highly useful for providing a long-lasting (60 turns) boost to ability scores. While other items may provide larger boosts, ioun stones do not need to be equipped.
  • The dusty rose ioun stone provides a deflection bonus to armor class. This does not stack with other deflection bonuses, often making this stone redundant.
  • Since the deep red ioun stone increases dexterity, it often provides an indirect (and stacking) bonus to armor class equal to that from the dusty rose, but be aware of the maximum dexterity bonus.
  • Ioun stones produce magical effects, so can be dispelled.
