Ring of the
High Kings
( = )
Item Type Ring
Artifact? Yes
Weight 1s
Danger Level N/A
Material Gold

The Ring of the High Kings is a guaranteed artifact. Its unidentified form is "platinum ring" (although Weaponsmiths identify it as being made of gold).

Desirability[edit source]

It grants a few resistances and a small boost to the PC's armor rating, which may make it worth wearing in general, although most PCs are likely to find something better.

Wearing the ring is the easiest way to pass the Eternal Guardian, who obstructs a staircase in the lower Caverns of Chaos. This alone makes it worthwhile for many players to obtain it.

Guaranteed/Common sources[edit source]

Found in the locked room on the lowest level of the Tomb of the High Kings; see that article for more detail.
