Ring of minor elemental mastery is a type of ring in ADOM. Whilst worn one will grant resistance to fire, cold and shock, as well as increasing DV and PV (usually by 2 points each, though the values may sometimes be higher or lower).


Not particularly desirable to most PCs seeing as it is usually very hard to find one, and the Ring of the High Kings — which is guaranteed to appear in every game — provides the same resistances and usually one extra PV point. To Elementalists that start out with one, it does come in very useful in the early game, especially since it combines the effects of multiple early game rings — fire resistance, cold resistance, protection and defense — in one slot. However, it still isn't a particularly good Heir gift as Elementalists get intrinsic fire and shock resistances at level 6 and 12, anyways.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

They can be generated as random loot; though they seem to be extremely rare. They are available to Elementalists as their Heir gift. Druids will receive one as part of their rewards for killing Keethrax.
