Ring of damage ( = )
Item Type Ring
Artifact? No
Weight 1s
Danger Level 1
Material Adamantium

Rings of damage adjust your melee damage by a certain value: right hand: blessed damage +6, uncursed +3, cursed -2 left hand blessed +3, uncursed +1, cursed -1


Rings of Damage are moderately useful, though moreso during early stages of the game when the bonuses are larger relative to the PC's innate damage level.

Note that the bonus is smaller on the character's left hand; this leads some to advocate wearing the ring on the left hand if the cursed/blessed status of the ring is not yet known, to lower the penalty if the ring is indeed cursed.

A blessed ring of damage becomes obsolete once a ring of slaying is found.
