Ring of Power (+1 chosen characteristic) What can I chose?


My party just found the magic item Ring of Power which gives +1 to a chosen characteristic, but we are not entirely sure what exactly we can chose it gives +1 to.
quote:


51 Ring of Power (BDEW) 500G
This simple band of stone slips easily onto your finger, contracting until it is a perfect fit.
While wearing this ring one of your Warrior’s characteristics is increased by + 1. Choose which characteristic is affected the first time your Warrior puts the ring on.


Is it only stats like Toughness, Strength and Intelligence or can we also chose for example +1 Damage Dice?
Damage dice seems like the obvious choice, but also a bit overpowered as it is a ring and therefore is not exchanged for a weapon or armor.

Move, Weapon Skill, Ballistic Skill (technically -1), Strength, Toughness, Initiative, Attacks, Willpower (lol), Pinning (also technically -1) and Luck.

I suppose you could also have +1 Starting Wound, Internal power, faith, Innate Mana or similar. Some may disagree.

Damage is a no, +1 Damage Dice is Over-powered and not a 'true' stat as it relates to D6, not an individual stat. Some GM's may allow +1 Damage, so that your Warrior causes Damage Dice + Strength + 1 Damage. But you would usually better off just having +1 Strength. I guess if you Warrior used a weapon that did a fixed Strength value (like a bow or gun) it could arguably be useful to have +1 Damage rather than +1 Strength. But, all this is highly debatable, I think most people with agree with the first paragraph of this response.

not damage dice.

I look at this using the chaos warrior characteristic table (the one you roll 2D6 on) except you can just choose.

seems the most logical way.

95% of the time +1A is chosen.
with a poor WS character weapon skill is chosen, especially if it takes you out of a bad bracket.
(WS4 at level 10 is awful: any WS 9 or higher hits you on 2+. just as an example)

most of my posts may run into essay length. I find that for a lot of queries/feedback context is important and that is why this happens more often than not.

have a great day :D
