Ring of Recoil Guide OSRS

A Ring of Recoil is a valuable accessory created through the application of a Lvl-1 Enchant spell on a sapphire ring. When equipped, it inflicts 10% + 1 of the damage endured by the wearer (rounded down) back onto the attacker. Notably, the attacking entity must initially cause damage for the recoil effect to trigger. This defensive mechanism extends to encounters with both players and non-playable characters (NPCs).

The ring can withstand delivering up to 40 hitpoints of damage before becoming unusable. To monitor the remaining damage capacity of the ring, players can operate it while equipped via the Worn Equipment interface. Interestingly, the damage tally persists across all rings equipped by the player rather than individually for each ring. Hence, when a new ring is equipped, it inherits the same number of charges as any other ring worn by the player. To reset the charge count to 40, players must fully deplete a ring until it shatters or opt for the "Break" function via right-clicking on a ring within their inventory.

Uses and Stats

1. Players can utilize Rings of Recoil to imbue a Ring of Suffering with the same recoil effect, eliminating the necessity of carrying multiple rings or frequent re-equipping during combat. This amalgamation offers enhanced defensive capabilities owing to the substantial defensive bonuses conferred by the Ring of Suffering. Additionally, noted Rings of Recoil may also be integrated into a Ring of Suffering to achieve identical effects. Notably, when using a Ring of Recoil to charge a Ring of Suffering, the player's charge count resets to 40, though whether this is intentional remains uncertain.

2. Some players, particularly skillers, strategically employ the ring during combat scenarios in quests and other encounters. Surprisingly, the Ring of Recoil often yields more damage output compared to the significantly pricier Berserker Ring, particularly at lower strength and defense levels. Its efficacy shines against adversaries boasting high attack speeds but minimal damage output.

3. A notable synergy arises when players combine a Ring of Recoil with full Dharok's equipment, an Amulet of the Damned, and an activated Vengeance spell. This setup enables players to reflect 100% of the damage sustained from a hit back onto their opponent, presenting a formidable advantage in player-versus-player (PvP) confrontations. Notably, the reflection mechanics may lead to instances where the reflected damage slightly falls short of the full hit, primarily due to individual damage calculation and rounding down to the nearest integer.
