Fashion Question

I currently have Ring of Speed +6 and a Ring of Damage +12 on. I just found another Ring of Speed +6.

I have two questions, and would appreciate info and advice.

First, would the two rings of speed be cumulative?

Second, if so, would it be smarter to wear the two rings of speed, or stay as is? (I already typically have speed of +10 or +11 normally, fyi)

1) Speed items are cumulative; at endgame, you *need* a speed of 30+.

2) Generally, it's better to be faster. This way, you'll hit monsters more often, so producing more damage overall. For the same reason, you don't want to be slower than the monsters, do you?

Well, it's more that Morgoth being able to double-move you isn't a great thing. He probably won't choose to do two high-damage attacks in those two turns, but do you want to take that risk?

This is true. There comes a point at which +Damage is better than +Speed, but I suspect the Speed ring is better than the Damage ring in this case. Going from +11 to +17 effectively increases your damage by 29%; can the Damage ring compare?
