Brimstone ring detail.png

A brimstone ring is a ring created by combining three untradeable components — the hydra's eye, fang and heart. Players cannot receive a duplicate of these until obtaining the others. It has no requirements to equip and provides the combined offensive and defensive stats of the un-imbued archers, berserker, warrior, seers, treasonous, and Tyrannical rings, along with a Passive effect that improves its effectiveness to rival the Seers ring (i) for best-in-slot when using Magic.

Brimstone rings cannot be imbued.

Passive effect[edit | edit source]

The ring has a passive effect when worn. Each time the player attacks using a spell or magical attack, even from a powered staff, there is a 25% chance that the target's defensive roll will be reduced by 10% for that single attack only. [1]

Changes[edit | edit source]

Date Changes
17 January 2019

A notification regarding the Brimstone ring’s effect in PvP has been corrected.

13 January 2019

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.
