A ring that increases the ability of its wearer to use magical spells.

Wearing a ring of wizardry improves your spell success rate significantly. This stacks with other sources of wizardry, but with diminishing returns.


Good for spellcasters, especially in the early game. Wizardry is always better for decreasing failure rate than a ring of intelligence. For casters, the single biggest jump in power is when a spell goes from "failure is too high to be used" to "failure is low enough to be used"; wizardry can help reach that.

Once you can comfortably cast a given spell without wizardry, a ring of intelligence (which also increases spell power) or a defensive ring will likely be preferable. Wizardry is useless for those who aren't casting any spells to begin with.


  • Prior to 0.14, a staff of wizardry provided a slightly better bonus to wizardry than the ring.
  • Prior to 0.8, this ring would not auto-identify.
