Perhaps it's use is implied, but I'm surprised you haven't mentioned the uses of the Duelling Ring. It's absolutely fantastic for Warped Tortoises--you can dump an inventory at Mobilising Armies and then use the Spirit Tree there to take you back to the Warped Torts. The whole process takes <1 minute and you can keep your familiar out the whole time. That means that there is no real need to use a BoB to carry drops--you can just bank quickly--so you can use a Healing familiar (like the Bunyip) the whole time. If you don't need the healer, I would highly advise that you take a fighting familiar. They help enormously in fending off crashers.
Well, it is the method I am accustomed to. Also, given that i'm using these for cash I use a wealth. The few times I forgot it, my loops were horrendous. As i'm only 63 summoning, there is only a handful of familiars that I can use. I will add your suggestion though. It does seem quite useful for the summoning inclined players.
