Disarm the ring:
Jacomo Nauta: Talk to the fairy scholar. Learn that the ring needs a focus for the transfer and it can only be used only once more.
Ask Jacomo about the focus. The focus has to have an actual part (hair, fingernail, blood) of the target's body and the body part must be conjoined with the ring (touch it).
Artefact as bait: Ask Jacomo how to change the magic word. The original words have to be said backwards and use another word.
Ask about Corvus. Select Satinav as the new magic word. The scholar and Geron (automatically-not shown) change the magic word.
Geron says farewell to the scholar.
Geron travels to Raven's Peak.
