Consistently using that ring will get you killed. It extends the timeline for getting out of a nasty situation by one turn, and that is plenty of time to die. Teleportation is the only feasible way of getting out of danger past dlvl 20 or so, when pretty much every monster can kill you while running away on foot. Titans and deep uniques in particular have a tendency to summon a bunch of monsters that could quite possibly kill you in one round, and if you have no way of teleporting, then your only option is Banish or Destruct, and those are in limited supply for most characters.

As for the ring of strength, well, the effect of the curse is to make it a swap item (costing a pack slot and being vulnerable to electricity) rather than a constant use item.
