The ring of wealth is an enchanted ring made by casting the spell Lvl-5 Enchant on a Dragonstone ring, requiring level 68 Magic and granting 78 experience. Wearing this ring while killing monsters increases the odds of getting a drop from the rare drop table if it is rolled, and automatically collects any money (coins, tokkul, and numulites) dropped by monsters the player kills. It can also be charged at the Fountain of Rune to provide useful teleports to wealth-related places.
Players can imbue the ring using a ring of wealth scroll, purchased from the Bounty Hunter Shop, to enhance the ring's capabilities. Wearing an imbued ring doubles the chance of obtaining a clue scroll from monsters and from skilling while in the Wilderness.
Features[edit | edit source]
Rare drop enhancement[edit | edit source]
Wearing this ring slightly increases the chance of obtaining an item from the gem drop table, and significantly increases the chance of receiving a mega-rare item (Shield left half, Dragon spear, or Rune spear).
The ring of wealth approximately doubles the chance of receiving a regular item from the gem drop table by removing the 63 empty slots out of the 128 entries in the drop table. It also removes all 113 empty slots out of the 128 entries in the mega rare drop table, increasing the chance of obtaining a mega rare item by a factor of approximately 16.8 from the gem drop table, and by a factor of 8.5 from the rare drop table. The ring of wealth does not change the items dropped by any monster - it only increases the chance of getting an item from the rare drop table should the chance present itself.
It should be noted that the ring only needs to be worn by the player while dealing the killing blow before the loot appears. It does not have to be worn during the entire battle, so the player may wear a stat-boosting ring until the monster is at low health and then switch to the ring of wealth when the killing blow is about to be dealt.
Ironmen who desire a Dragon spear or Shield left half may opt to wear a ring of wealth when defeating monsters, especially if the monsters roll the rare drop table often, as they are significantly more likely to receive these items while the ring is worn.
Currency collection[edit | edit source]
With a ring of wealth equipped, any coins, tokkul, and numulites dropped by monsters that the player kills will automatically be added to the player's inventory instead of dropping on the ground. This can be toggled by right-clicking the ring.
Teleportation[edit | edit source]
The ring, like all other dragonstone jewellery, is useful when travelling in the Wilderness, as it will work up to level 30 Wilderness, while most other means of teleportation will not work above level 20 Wilderness. Players can access the teleports by either rubbing it in their inventory and selecting their destination from the option box which appears, or right-clicking it while equipped and selecting a destination.
The ring has no charges when it is created, and can only be charged at the Fountain of Rune; not even a charge dragonstone jewellery scroll works on it. Charging it at the Fountain of Rune gives it five charges and enables it to be used to teleport to the following locations at a cost of one charge per teleport:
- Miscellania (after Throne of Miscellania)
- Grand Exchange entrance
- Falador Park
- Dondakan in the Keldagrim mine (after Between a Rock...)
The price difference between a full ring and an empty one is 1,321, so each charge costs about 264.
Boss log[edit | edit source]
The ring of wealth has a right-click option to bring up a log recording various bosses the player has killed and the number of times the player has killed them. Once a player reaches 65,535 kills the log will say "Lots!" for that particular boss. This is because the kill count is saved into an unsigned 16-bit integer variable that has a maximum value of 65,535.
Other features[edit | edit source]
Wearing a ring of wealth increases the number of feathers dropped by the evil chicken.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Initially, some players believed that wearing a ring of wealth would give a better chance of landing on a rare drop table when completing a clue scroll. It was later confirmed twice that this is not the case.
- The ability to automatically pick up coin drops was introduced in the Update: Elder Beta & Barbarian Assault update on August 18, 2016.
- The teleport to Falador Park references the fact that before the introduction of the Grand Exchange, the park served as massive player trading hub in both members and free-to-play worlds.
