A ring that increases the physical strength of its wearer.

A +6 ring of strength boosts the strength of the wearer.


Decent. Strength provides a fair boost to your damage, and lets you wear armour easily. A ring of strength might be a good find for early characters wearing heavy armour. However, resistance-boosting rings may be more useful as you go through the game.

Every point of strength adds a +2.5% multiplier to your base damage, or a 15% boost from a base ring of strength. If your (base damage * skill multiplier) is above 26.6, the ring of strength beats a ring of slaying in pure damage. Note that strength doesn't boost auxiliary attacks and lacks the to-hit that slaying provides, but is compensated by the reduced armour encumbrance penalties.


  • Prior to 0.27, you could find rings of strength with a -4 enchantment; such rings were always cursed.
  • Prior to 0.25, enchantment values ranged from 2 to 6 (positive and negative).
