The One Ring - Found!

Beat Sauron and was clearing a few levels to get my supplies up to snuff for a Morgoth run.... and lo and behold... FOUND the ONE RING after clearing a room full of Liches, Vamps and such.

Can't see not using it as I don't know I'll ever see it again!

One of those bizarre things may be a permanent loss of experience, i.e., not replaceable by restore life levels. Ugly. After that lesson, I never activate The One, but I do use it whenever I get immensely lucky enough to find it. Good luck!

Checking in the code it has a 20% chance of permanently reducing stats and experience (and it's a hefty 25% experience drain)

There is also a 10% chance of dispelling everything in line of sight, 30% chance of a 300 point mana ball and a 40% chance of a 250 point mana bolt

The upsides don't seem that great compared to the potential downside

That Sauron. What a guy

My Dunadan Warrior just found the One Ring in a lesser vault at 2300'... level feeling was only "Good". What the hell?!

Needless to say I upgraded my Ring of Damage +10 immediately. The experience drain is not a problem as my character has the Shadow Cloak of Luthien that activates to restore experience.

Not found the One Ring since playing something like V3.0.6 and that was at 4950.
