A ring of gain strength increases your strength by its enchantment, which can be altered by charging.

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]

Strategy

This ring is generally not considered useful, but it can be used to slightly increase carrying capacity or give a small boost to melee damage and accuracy. Characters with low strength such as an early healer or wizard should consider using one.

At 18 strength, the ring will instead increase percentile dice by its enchantment, which makes it nearly useless when your strength is maxed out, since even a +9 ring will not add more than +1 to damage.
