Wyrmking's Ring is an item available in Dragon's Dogma.

Description

"A band that exudes mystic power. Merely possessing it allows for quicker incanting of spells."

The Wyrmking's Ring is a magickal and valuable property of Edmun Dragonsbane.

During the eponymous quest The Wyrmking's Ring, the Arisen is tasked with recovering the ring, which has been stolen - suspicion falls on the sorcerer Salomet.

It is often assumed that the ring was created by Salomet, though not stated explicitly - Salomet was one of a party of mages who once held council in Gran Soren, and were tasked with creating magick items and so on - it may be that the ring was created at this council.

Uses

The Wyrmking's Ring shortens spell casting time by 10% for any character with it in their inventory.[1] Despite being a ring, this item cannot be equipped - it is be effective merely by having it in one's inventory.

The effect stacks with the augment Articulacy to reduce spellcasting time by around twice as much. Multiple rings do not stack the effect.

The ring also unlocks a special chest in the Treasury in the Duke's Demesne - as witnessed in the quest Reward and Responsibility.

Forgery

A Wyrmking's Ring Forgery can be obtained from Mountebank at The Black Cat in Gran Soren for 99,990 Gold - it looks the same, but has none of the magick properties of the original.

Enhancing

Notes

  1. The ring speeds up the incanting (charging) of spells, but does not diminish the start up or cooldown times for spells (such as the long post-incant cast of Maelstrom).
  • If the ring is lost by discarding, selling, or gifting, it can be purchased back from The Black Cat for 66,660 Gold.
  • Since pawns cannot bring their inventory with them into the Rift, the shorter spellcasting effect will not carry over when they are hired by other players online.
  • The ring has no effect on non-spell skills.
  • It seems that the sorcerer Salomet stole the ring in an attempt to use it as a device to grant him immortality:
"The Wyrmking's Ring is a talisman of incomparable character
A vessel worthy of the whole of my magick!
What sublime bliss!
What heady rapture!
Yes... I will see my dream made reality
My essence... my very soul will inhabit the ring...
In it, I shall be reborn unto life everlasting!" –Salomet
