The ring of death (i)(o) is a ring of death that has been both imbued to have additional equipment bonuses and overcharged to have more degradation charges, in either order. The imbuement is purchased from the Armoursmith for 15,000 teci. Overcharging is done by speaking to Death and costs 5 cut onyx and 25 black stone hearts (8,916,725 coins), after unlocking the ability to overcharge the ring for 150 Reaper points.

The imbuement adds 2.5 to the strength, magic, and ranged damage bonuses. The overcharge increases the equipment charges to 500,000. The charge drain on death is reduced to 3% of the maximum charges (which remains 15,000 charges, the same as a non-overcharged ring). The overcharged ring requires 10 cut onyx to fully repair instead of 2, which keeps the per-charge repair cost the same.

The ring continues to provide the same passive effects as before:

  • When a target is killed there is a 50% chance to restore the wearer's adrenaline by 1% per 1500 of the target's maximum life points, to a maximum of 5% adrenaline
  • If the wearer dies, instead of the normal death system, they will be transported to the last respawn hub visited with all items intact (including familiars), at a cost of 3% of the ring's maximum charge (effectively costing 361,266 coins); this does not work in the Wilderness and will NOT activate for Hardcore Ironmen accounts.[1][2]
