Legendary rings in Neverwinter are indeed a legend to most players. We know they exist, but some of us probably do not own a single one. Introduced in Underdark back in the day, these shiny orange toys quickly became a point of contention. First of all because the RNG was horrendous, and second of all because some were simply trash. The frustration of finally getting a legendary ring and then realizing that you’ve pulled a Ring of Charging Bull +5 is something nobody should ever go through.
But hey, Module 8 is long gone and we’ve kinda moved on from legendary rings anyway. Today they still exist, but despite being technically “bis”, it’s not as much of a trophy any longer. Having a decked out orange character looks nice, but the gameplay advantage is no longer there. That’s actually the case since a few mods, but Mod 12/13 really helped here because now everyone can get double off/def slots, which used to be the main advantage of legendary rings.
The system was for sure flawed, but in hindsight gear progression quickly made them that much less valuable. It sure feels like they never were a decisive factor in PVE or PVP. Which leads to our weekly poll: Could we have overreacted to legendary rings after all? Were they ever mandatory, or worth grinding for? Or was it a clear case of not climbing the bis mountain for a mod or two and then get the same value for much less work a little later?
