Price/Power (3/5)
If this had say, a 25%-30% chance to do a full heal I would maybe find this useful enough to recommend. Unfortunately for this chalice however it does not come close to providing a reason to throw away your healing spot.

Countermeasures (0/5)
Unless you have an ungodly amount of hp (and even then, would you really give up so many turns for this?) chances are you will not be able to get the desired heal out before you lose.

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
The main upgrade to this, aka, the best 100% healer that doesn't work reliably, is the Sword of Lameness. It offers battlers the chance of healing to max multiple times in a battle and does so with some other awesome powers... Really there are no other good "chance of healing" items around and you are likely better getting a different healer. If you have low health, the Greater Healing Scroll works if you can find it cheaply, or perhaps you could find a species 100% healer or a Bag of Healing Dust.

Other Points

Final Thoughts
The word "might" really shows everyone why using this item in combat is not a swell idea.

Price/power (4/5): 100% healer that doesn't work all the time. Amounts to an effective 10% heal.

Tactical (1/5): Too unreliable to be used in a serious battle. I can see this being a useful way to heal after a difficult battle though--just challenge a weak opponent, hide behind a shield, and use this chalice over and over again until your HP is restored.

Bonus (0/1): The Heroes of Altador probably don't use this in the Battledome. They'd carry the Bag of Healing Dust instead.

Closing remarks: You're better off with one of the healing scrolls. The Lesser Healing Scroll will do until you're finally able to get a Greater Healing Scroll.
