|| Ring of positive energy
|| This blessed ring protects the life-force of its wearer from negative energy, making them partially immune to the draining effects of undead and necromantic magic.
A ring of positive energy provides one level of negative energy resistance (rN+), protecting its wearer from draining attacks and necromantic magic.
Whether this ring is useful or not is largely situational, although life protection is decidedly less useful than fire or cold resistance. The undead can ignore them entirely, as they are immune to the energy type by nature. Also, as most draining attacks are subject to EV, very agile characters will not generally need much negative energy resistance. However, high-AC, low-EV characters taking on the shadow dragon-heavy Vault:5 may wish to have a few ranks in order to avoid taking heavy damage and the debilitating skill debuffs that accompany draining attacks.
Prior to 0.13, this ring was known as the ring of life protection.
