Brimstone ring detail.png

The Brimstone ring is a ring created by combining three untradeable components - the hydra's eye, fang and heart. Like the abyssal bludgeon, if a player already has a hydra's body part, they will not receive duplicate pieces. For example, if a player has obtained a hydra's eye, they are guaranteed to get either a fang or heart next time.

The ring has no requirements to wear and provides the combined offensive and defensive stats of the un-imbued archers, berserker, warrior, seers, treasonous, and tyrannical rings. The Brimstone ring cannot be imbued.

Passive effect[edit | edit source]

The ring has a passive effect: when casting combat spells, it has a 25% chance to ignore 10% of the target's total magic defence. This passive effect applies to the built in spells of powered staves, even though they are not within a spellbook. [1]

(update)
A notification regarding the Brimstone ring’s effect in PvP has been corrected.
13 January 2019
Hotfix On release, the ring had a chance to reduce the opponent's Magic level instead of ignoring its magic defence, which could be stacked to render NPCs' magical attacks ineffective. This was fixed soon after discovery, approximately 3 days after the item's release. [2]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Brimstone ring's design comes from the common depiction of the Ouroboros symbol of a serpent or dragon eating its own tail.
