Ring of wealth
The ring of wealth (sometimes abbreviated ROW) is produced by enchanting a dragonstone ring. Generally, the ring is worn to improve the chances of specific rare drops, and to increase the likelihood of receiving specific rewards from mini-games like Pyramid Plunder. Although the ring increases the frequency and chances of a less likely drop or reward, the percentage is very small.
The ring of wealth's magical power can sometimes have an effect on the drops that you receive from defeated creatures, and a few skill-related tasks. To understand how it works, we first need to define some terms.
- 100% drop - Most creatures have what is called a '100% drop' which they will drop every time they are defeated (e.g. bones or ashes).
- Main drop - This will be an item drawn from a creature's 'drop table' based upon a random 'roll' (imagine a dice roll or roulette wheel).
- Drop table - This is a list of all items that a creature could possibly drop. The percentage chance of receiving each item varies depending upon the item's relative value.
- Rare drop table - Occasionally, a creature will have a drop table of more valuable items. To get onto this drop table, you must first 'roll' to land on it from the main drop table.
- Second drop - Some creatures also have a second drop. So far, this only consists of charms used in Summoning.
- Quest drops - in some instances, a creature will drop a quest-specific item (e.g. the unique bones required for the Rag and Bone Man or Fur 'n' Seek quests).
On most creatures' drop tables, there is a small chance that instead of receiving an item from its own drop table, you will instead get a roll again on the 'rare drop table'. The rare drop table contains some of the more exclusive items in the game, including, but not limited to, dragon items, certain rune items, shield halves, key parts and uncut gems. The rare table also contains 'empty slots' - the end result of landing on these empty slots is often referred to as receiving 'no drop' or 'bone drop'. We keep these slots empty for any future drops that we want to add to this table.
The rare drop table is shared between a variety of creatures - e.g. goblins, fire giants, most slayer creatures. A good way to tell if a creature has a rare drop table is if it is known to drop a half key; then it will drop other items from the rare drop table. There are, however, certain 'very rare' drops that are not on the rare drop table, because they are specific to certain enemies or enemy types (e.g. the draconic visage is only ever dropped by dragons; godsword pieces only by the God Wars Dungeon bosses) and it would not make sense for these items to be dropped by, say, a fire giant.
The ring of wealth comes into play whenever you are rolling on the rare drop table or on rare monster specific drops. Its ability effectively removes most of the empty slots, drastically increasing your chances of receiving an item from the rare drop table once you have been lucky enough to roll onto it. The effect of the ring of wealth differs between the enemies you fight. Adventurers who make regular use of a ring of wealth should find that they receive fewer 'no drops' than adventurers who do not, and, therefore, will receive more rare drops and, in the long run, gain more wealth. You will receive a message in your chatbox if the ring of wealth improves your drop from a specific creature.
The ring of wealth is not solely used to improve the drops from defeated creatures. It can also be used to give you a chance of the following:
