The ring of stealth is a good choice for avoiding sleeping monsters and tackling special rooms (such as the Sokoban treasure zoo), especially if you do not have intrinsic stealth, and you either have not found any elven equipment or else your current boots and/or cloak (e.g. speed boots or a cloak of magic resistance) are already useful enough. Its auto-identification is useful for saving players a trip to the sink.
Characters with intrinsic stealth will find the ring redundant, and may opt to polypile them once they have it identified, as well as hanging on to one in case intrinsic stealth is lost.
The auto-identifying quality of the ring was introduced in NetHack 3.6.0.
- You move very quietly.
- You put on a ring of stealth, and didn't already have stealth. The ring is auto-identified.
- You sure are noisy.
- You removed your ring of stealth, and didn't have any other source of stealth. The ring is auto-identified.
- The sink seems to blend into the floor for a moment.
- You dropped the ring of stealth down a sink.
Variants based on NetHack 3.4.3 and earlier versions may not have the ring of stealth auto-identify when worn.
