Talk:Ring of forging
Dodgy rings from G.E? I just bought 108 of these rings, to smoth 15,000 Iron Bars, and well, the first ring I used has melted after 57 bars made, not the 140 this page suggests. Are you sure for definate that buying them resets them to 140, or does the G.E issue dodgy forging rings?

A second ring has yielded 140 uses, so I think they're fine now. But they were all bought from G.E. Sorry, hope I'm doing this right, this is my first discussion page.

Every player have their own 140, 140, 140 system from each ring of forging they use. If you buy a ring of forging from the G.E and never ever have used one before, you will have 140 uses with it even tough the previous owner may have used it maybe 65 times. This now means that next time he use a ring of forging, it will last 140 minus 65 times (75). If you've used a ring of forging before and stopped used it in the middle of the 140 uses, you will stuck on that number of uses, lets say 47 uses. This means that the next time you use ANY ring of forging, it will only let you make 140 minus 47 100% iron bars (93).
my ring gives me 140 uses, not 56. Why is this?
Bug/glitch with ring-switching[edit source]
If you smet 139 iron ores with a ring of forging, then hi-alch your ring before it breaks (the amount obtained is 1,215 coins), you may only smelt one ore with the next ring before it breaks. I'm guessing that unlike teleportation jewellery, the ring's code is attached to an internal counter set to how many ores you smelted with a ring, regardless of how new the ring was.
Non-Member Use[edit source]
Can non-members buy and use the rings to help with iron smelting? Falling Rocks 22:07, December 3, 2011 (UTC)
- No, rings of forging are members only, as stated in the infobox. 22:20, December 3, 2011 (UTC)
General Wiki editing[edit source]
This is a general wiki editing topic rather than a topic specific to this item (Ring of forging), but I'm posting it here because I found this problem here and couldn't find out why it happened or how to resolve it.
I found that while the GE price of the item is shown correctly in the infobox, it is outdated in the section where it shows the cost of using a charge and profit/loss from using the ring. So I thought that maybe the prices in those sections were manually written (not auto-updated by the wiki) and went on to edit them only to see that templates were used (as they should be) already.
Thereby, my confusion and problem, as to why the article main page is showing outdated prices even though the GE template is used, while the infobox on the same page is showing the correct price. I even purged the page to force update the prices, but the result was the same. I also checked to iron ore and iron bar pages and found that their current GE price is different than that in the article main page as is the case with the ring itself. I would really like to know the reason and solution so as to help me edit any other page with the same problem I find in the future. V the Mighty (talk) 17:57, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
