Name Ring of slaying
Icon Ring of slaying.png
A ring that increases or decreases the wearer's effectiveness with ranged weapons and melee attacks, depending on its degree of enchantment.

A +4 or -4 ring of slaying affects the accuracy and damage of your melee (including unarmed), ranged, and auxiliary attacks. Negatively enchanted rings are usually cursed.

A functionally identical effect occasionally appears on artefact jewellery and armour, denoted as "Slay ±X".

Desirability

Very high. Having more damage means killing enemies faster and being exposed to their attacks less.

Characters with fast weapons and/or auxiliary attacks stand to benefit more from slaying, as it is applied per hit.

History

  • Prior to 0.25, enchantments were random values between 1 and 6.
  • Before the weapon enchantment merge in 0.15, rings of slaying had two distinct bonuses--one for accuracy, and one for damage.
  • Prior to 0.10, slaying was more powerful as it was included before the weapon skill multiplier.
