How does this work?

1) Do I just get a Trove Loot Chest during my recovery phase, or do I have to search for a merchant somehow? Seems like I just get it, but wording is confusing.

2) Can I try to open the Trove Loot during the recovery phase I get it? I am guessing yes as you can do things in any order but just want clarification.

We had the sme question yesterday.
We ruled you have to spend your one allowed action to use the card. So no healing or scouting during that phase.

Thanks. That is how I played it too. Hope this FAQ gets done soon.

Any more info on this? Played a learning game of TMB and this gems wording or how/where it's supposed to be used was too confusing.

I wonder if you're supposed to use the "Search for Better Loot" option during Recovery Phase to find the merchant: if you roll any bones you have found the merchant. The problem with this is that searching for better loot says you're supposed to discard a loot card, so if this is the way to find a merchant, that would suck to lose the gem that way.

That is how we played it the first time. Rolled no bones. Got angry. Then changed to just get it for free. Also, that interpretation didn't work because it didn't make sense to take more than one. But who knows, we definitely need an official ruling.

The rules only subject on using Loot is that it can be used on your turn during battle. Any exceptions are written explicitly on the loot cards themselves.

I've been playing that Tewaren Gem must be exchanged for a Trove Loot during your turn in combat, though it does make more since "thematically" to have to use your "Once-per Rest" action to search for a merchant.

I'm quite sure the text is "just" fluff...

So, re OP, it would be option 1: during your recovery phase, you are somehow able to find a merchant and exchange the gem for a Trove Loot.

The card actually state "during your Recovery Phase", so definitely not during combat.

I just encountered this too. I think this is the games way of giving you a treasure loot card from the loot pile? I agree that it seems it would be automatic and I'm hoping doesn't cost the action.

Just added this to the website FAQ, it does *not* cost an action.
