Thumbs down [Question] Ring of Dog

Are there any good rings of Dog? Or are they all bad? I mean there are some less bad rings of Mouse, aren't there?

I never find myself using either, to be honest.

For most low-level warriors (and probably paladins), Rings of the Dog aren't bad at all. You might find something better before you get intrinsic rFear, but for a character with garbage stealth anyway, and who can go toe-to-toe with almost everything in the dungeon, and who has enough hitpoints to run away from the rest, a stealth penalty is a nice tradeoff for rFear. It can really suck to get surrounded by a pack of orcs while a banshee that you can't see is frightening you so you can't attack.

With non-stealthy characters, I usually wear them until I find two rings of damage or damage and see invis, for example.

not a terrible ring, but it's generally quickly replaced with something better.

good to kill priests with.

All rings of the dog are the same. They all have -2 stealth.
