Ring of the fish ( = )
Item Type Ring
Artifact? No
Weight 1s
Danger Level 3
Material Iron

Rings of the fish provide a degree of protection from drowning when equipped. Provided protection is not absolute (as they do not grant water breathing) and depends on the B/U/C status. A single blessed ring, or two rings of any other status will negate drowning damage.

Note that rings of the fish are autocursing — equipping one will immediately curse it. In addition to standard annoyances with cursed equipment, autocursing interferes with the protective properties described above.


Can make all the difference between a river being a deathtrap and a potential means to escape from monsters safely. One of the ways to not drown in the Water Dragon Cave.
