A ring that makes its wearer either more or less capable of avoiding attacks, depending on its degree of enchantment.

A +5 ring of evasion boosts the evasion of its wearer.


All characters can benefit from more EV, but sacrificing a ring slot for it may or may not be a good idea depending on your other resistances. Unlike most amulets, rings take effect immediately, so you can quickly switch between them at need.

Rings of evasion are more effective, on average, than a ring of protection. However, AC is more reliable than EV; with evasion, you either dodge or you don't. If you already have high AC, then a ring of evasion can be a good defensive choice (AC has a somewhat diminishing return, since it can't reduce attacks below 0)

A ring of dexterity can end up providing more EV for characters with high Dodging skill (among dexterity's other benefits).


  • Prior to 0.30, rings of evasion gave only +4 evasion.
  • Prior to 0.27, you could find rings of evasion with a -4 enchantment; such rings were always cursed.
  • Prior to 0.25, enchantments were random values between 1 and 6 (positive and negative).
