      This ring increases Crystal Soul Spear damage by 39 on giant lord +7. From 1011 to 1040. Staff of Wisdom +5 and 99 INT. Not even remotely worth the ring slot.

        don't listen to these other comments, 80 extra damage is nearly unnoticeable at the levels everyone plays at and a pure magic build damn near turns into a demigod with this or the dark ring

          This thing really isn't worth it, the damage increase is trivial in most situations to make up for the loss of physical resistance and a ring slot, and the weight of 2 is ball breaking as well.

            Fextralife should provide more detailed info for these rings. But I guess they have no time too focused on adding ADS which make mine browser crash if I stay on this site longer than 5 minutes.
