A ring of gain strength increases your strength by its enchantment, which can be altered by charging. This ring is generally not considered useful, but it can be used in a pinch to slightly increase carrying capacity or give a small boost to melee damage and accuracy. However, by the time a player has the resources to significantly increase the enchantment of this ring, they almost always hit in combat regardless. As such, it is better to save sources of charging on wands or tools.

Dropping a ring of gain strength down a sink produces the message "The water flow seems stronger now." If the ring's enchantment is negative, "The water flow seems weaker now."[1]
