The 1 Ring
The 1 Ring can only be found by fishing, referencing the discovery of the One Ring by the hobbits Déagol and Sméagol while on a fishing trip (in Tolkien's Lord of the Rings).
This item can be found by fishing in any low level fishing area, such as the canals in Stormwind and other fishing areas in Horde and Alliance main cities and secondary areas. However, it has an extremely low drop rate and even an avid fisherman is unlikely to ever see one.
It is not a great ring - by the time you really need the extra edge from items for battlegrounds or instances, there are other choices with as high a total stat bonus, and with focused bonuses that help specific classes.
jokingly referred to in the item's tooltip would later be implemented in patch 2.4.0.
- Direct reference and humorous variations on The One Ring, the most powerful item in Middle-Earth, which drives the plot of Lord of the Rings.
- Patch 8.0.1 (2018-07-17): Stamina reduced back to +1.
- Patch 7.0.3 (2016-07-19): Spirit replaced with Versatility.
- Patch 6.0.2 (2014-10-14): Stamina re-balanced from +1 to +2, ruining the joke.
