Re: Stash Culture

I usually stash things on Lair:1 or Lair: 2, depending which one has a better location. I usually also make a stash in Hive:1, though rarely. I do tend to stuff things in the Temple, but usually it's just weapons I don't want just lying around the place (electrocution, draining, venom and such.) If ...

I know for sure Spriggans don't get a boost out of Rings of Sustenance. If you find one as a spriggan, you'll notice that it's name is grayed out the way useless scrolls are.

I'd assume it's the same for Trolls and their hunger.
