    Re: Rings?

    Originally, the patch notes for patch 14 did say that both rings and amulets were removed. However, just a few hours after they were posted, they were ninja-edited to say amulets only. Guess the rings part was a typo. It currently reads:

    I've never managed to get one, but I've heard they can drop from the skeletons right in front of Leoric, due to their monster level.

    Is that where you found it?

    I got a Ring of Wounding randomly on my first playthrough with Patch 15 in Cathedral 4. Since then, I haven't been so lucky despite getting all five classes to level 13 and countless one-off playthroughs :p.

    Re: Rings?

    The only ring I've seen drop in this patch was from the skeletons that SK summons during the battle. Now I always make sure to kill them!

    Re: Rings?

    hold up I want a ring, so the skeletons in the SK fight or the ones that appear on the corner just before going into the SK room?

    If the skeletons that SK spawns give them I might just run round the SK king killing his skeletons without damaging him for 15 mins to see if i can get a ring...

    Re: Rings?

    They've definitely got a rare chance to drop things. I farmed them over and over a few weeks ago, just doing ~1-minute runs on them, till I filled my inventory. It was probably about 20 runs or so, with 0-3 items dropping per run, all white or gray in quality. I got maybe one or two magic items. Even with a run where I got lucky to have an MF shrine spawn right before SK's room, they didn't drop any magic items at all.

    A good tip for farming these is to make a single-player game, go through the entire cathedral, all the way up to the checkpoint your character receives right before you get to the Skeleton King's door. Then just kill the skeletons in that room and quit the game without killing the Skeleton King. Then just click the 'Resume' button to start a new game and your character will be at that saved checkpoint right before SK's room again.

    Re: Rings?

    I've found a 10 to int and 5% mf ring in a total of 3 runs.

    Loriku was there for one of them.

    The drop rate isn't that low, it's just the amount of monsters you fight down there is low.

    Found three rings from the skellies near the locked gate before SK. Also found a magic warrior belt from them.

    Re: Rings?

    Are you sure about this? I don't think *any* summons provide xp, gold, or items in order to prevent this very behavior.

    Re: Rings?

    yeah summons dont drop anything good

    I just farmed the returned before the SK gate about 10 time and got nothing of interest :( not worth the time.

    Will just have to wait till the game comes out to see what the rings are like.

    Re: Rings?

    I could be remembering wrong but I'm pretty sure that is what dropped it. In front of the gate would make more sense with what others have said though.

    Re: Rings?

    I can't believe my luck - I got like 3 rings in 10 minutes, from a few runs on those Returned skeletons, but after a half hour later, I didn't get any more :p.

    Re: Rings?

    Having +2-4 damage is way better than having +10 primary stat.

    Re: Rings?

    Lot of people is farming that skeleton pack before the boss, can be done really fast, with use of waypoint and rejoining games without killing SK.
    From my experience their drop is quite low, need some serious luck to find something useful there. At least it is possbile to drop.
