The ring of aggravate monster is a rather annoying ring, and is usually (90% of the time) cursed. Wearing (or eating) it gives you the property of aggravate monster.

When dropping this ring down a sink, you receive the message: "Several flies buzz angrily around the sink." (This also works while blind.)

This ring generally has no useful effects. As such, it is typically best to simply ignore these rings, or polymorph them if the player has spare charges or power.

One possible use for this ring is luring monsters to a desired location, such as an altar, when you are invisible.
