A ring of gain constitution increases your constitution by its enchantment. The enchantment can be altered by charging.

Dropping a ring of gain constitution down a sink produces the message "The water flow seems greater now." If the ring's enchantment is negative, "The water flow seems lesser now."

Strategy

This ring should be worn before leveling up to increase the number of hit points gained. It can also be used to increase the player's carrying capacity, which is calculated from strength and constitution. The boost to constitution exceeds racial limitations up to a maximum of 25, although in practice any value past 19 is functionally identical in most cases.

Prior to NetHack 3.6, a ring of gain constitution of any enchantment could be used to drain levels and regain them for a virtually limitless amount of hit points. See drain for gain.
