Rings of regeneration are relatively high-DL items that grant an extra source of regeneration when equipped (each source of regeneration makes the PC restore 1 HP per turn).

As of v. 1.2.0 rings of regeneration will bestow their effect on the PC only if equipped in the corresponding ring slots. In v. 1.1.1 it was possible to equip a stack of rings in the missile slot and still receive the bonus (1 HP/turn for the whole stack).


Regeneration is a very powerful ability making rings highly desirable. Their efficiency in the middle of prolonged fights with powerful monsters is somewhat limited, but they can easily be exchanged for more offensive-oriented rings for the fight and put back on to quickly replenish hit points after the battle.

Unlike all other common items granting extra regeneration, rings of regeneration are made of gold and will not damage mist elven PCs.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

They can be generated in the same manner as all generic loot.
