The archers' ring is one of the Fremennik rings. It is dropped by the Dagannoth Supreme in the Waterbirth Island Dungeon. The archers' ring can be imbued by Zimberfizz or Zanik at Soul Wars, turning it into an archers' ring (i) at a cost of 8 zeal. This increases its ranged bonus from 17 to 25.
When received with CoinShare active, the Archers' ring will be dropped as 120 Archers' ring shards split evenly among the players and sent directly to their banks. 120 shards can be combined to create this item.
On 19 March 2014, the price that an archers' ring could be bought on the Grand Exchange fell sharply from around 900,000 to 100,000. Hours afterward the price fell further to 25,000 and were reported to be 1,000gp at one point.
The cause of this was originally believed to be due to either a merchanting clan dumping their huge stock of the rings or a duplication glitch that was speculated to have been found in the newly released Grandmaster quest One of a Kind. Mod Tyran created a post on the forums on 20 March stating that they were aware of an incident with archers' rings and advised people not to engage in mass trading of the rings because players could face action on their account.
Mod Jane later posted on the Item Discussions forum detailing what had happened. There had been a human error in a system Jagex were currently trialling, causing a single player to receive millions of archers' rings accidentally, and they decided to take advantage of this by selling them for a very low price which caused the price crash as supply massively exceeded demand. The post also states that the majority of rings which were accidentally brought into the game have been removed.
