What's the point of Amulets of Adornment?

What's the point of amulets of adornment? They seem to be total junk that are of no possible use to anyone. Do they have some use, or would they be better off being removed entirely?

I could understand it giving a charisma boost, but that stat doesn't exist any more.

I know there are a few items of dubious benefit, but this one seems to be out-and-out useless.

Before runeID, they served a purpose since you did not right away find them useless. Now they are an echo from the past.

Maybe there should be a rune of adornment that could only be identified with a spell.

It could be renamed "Amulet of Nostalgia and Times Past"

More items of Adornment should be in the game. Boots of Adornment, cloaks of Adornments and headwear of Adornment seem obvious.

What better way to show scorn to Morgoth than to wander into his lair as if to a party?

Hahaha. What about shiny rings that do nothing?

I guess we could have a well-dressed challenge mode then: kill morgoth in style wearing only ornamental amulets, rings and armour :-)
