Version 0.25: This article may not be up to date for the latest stable release of Crawl.
A black ring that can make its wearer one with the shadows. It creates a dark umbra that surrounds the wearer and increases stealth greatly, and reduces the accuracy of all those within it

Desirability

The ring's umbra reduces both player and monster accuracy and multiplies the player's stealth score by 1.5 (in addition to the +50 bonus). Very nice for stealthy characters and still good for most others. The accuracy penalty from umbra is mostly negligible.

Followers of Yredelemnul and Dithmenos don't suffer from the umbra's accuracy penalty (though followers of Dithmenos generate their own umbra that eventually becomes larger than the ring's at higher piety levels).

History

  • Prior to 0.19, it had See Invisible and rN+ instead of a +50 Stealth bonus.
  • Prior to 0.14, it had +4 EV and -4 accuracy instead of umbra.
