I ended up wielding it, in the end. And I got away with it...

I have still never found the ring. What does it do when activated?

The One Ring activates for "bizarre" effects, which can sometimes be bad. I learned the hard way that one of its activation potentials is PERMANENT experience drain. All other experience drain can be restored with potion, spell, or rod, but not this one. (Not to be confused with the regular experience drain of The One Ring, which is curable, the Activation experience drain, if you're unlucky enough for it to be the random bizarre effect, is permanent.) I believe this is the only remaining permanent experience drain in the game.

XP drain is not that bad. You can also get all your stats drained permanently which is way worse (unless of course this too has changed).
