Appearances[edit | edit source]
Ring that guards against instant death.
The Protect Ring is an armlet that protects against Death-elemental attacks, has +8 Absorb, and -1% Evade. It can be bought for 16,000 gil at Gaia, and found in the Flying Fortress and the Chaos Shrine (past).
Unlike what the description states, Protect Rings do not resist all instant KO attacks, only ones that are Death-elemental (Death and Kill). Many instant KO spells and abilities, such as Earthquake and Break, require alternate resistance protection (Earth and Stone, respectively).
A ring affording protection against instant death.
The Protect Ring is an armlet that resists Fire, Thunder, Ice, Wind, and Light and boosts all stats by two. It can be equipped by all jobs. It can be found in the Temple of Time and Ancients' Maze, or dropped from King Behemoth (rare).
Ring resistant against fire, ice, and lightning.
In the SNES version, when characters equip elemental resistant equipment, they become weak to the opposite element. A character with the Protect Ring is thus weak to Fire and Ice-elemental physical attacks (however, no enemy uses physical elemental attacks, so this isn't usually an issue). This is changed in the Advance version where characters are no longer weak against the opposite element.
The Protect Ring provides 10 Defense, 12 Magic Defense, 5 Evasion, 10 Magic Evasion, and +15 Stamina, as well as resistance to Fire, Ice, and Lightning. It can be found in the Subterrane or dropped from Fiend Dragon.
Due to a glitch if one has a piece of equipment that absorbs an element, they will absorb the other elements.
Ring with same effect as Regen.
The Protect Ring is an accessory that grants the wearer Auto-Regen and provides +10 Defense, Magic Evasion, and Magic Defense as well as +1 Weight and +5 Stamina. It drops from Odin, is found at Istory Falls, Pyramid of Moore, and the Island Shrine, and is stolen from Soul Cannon at the Phoenix Tower.
The Protect Ring is an add-on that halves damage from all elements, and provides +1 Spirit, +2 Defense, +4 Evasion, +3 Magic Defense, and +6 Magic Evasion. It teaches Half MP, Long Reach, and Mag Elm Null. It can be exchanged from Mene at the Chocobo Hot and Cold minigame for 8,500 points, or synthesized for 40,000 gil, Rebirth Ring, and Dark Matter at Hades's synthesis shop.
Others can be acquired by completing the Mognet sidequest by fixing Mognet Central, using a Dead Pepper at a mountain crack on the eastern part of the Lost Continent, completing the lost Nero family quest in Lindblum, and by answering all of the Ragtime Mouse's questions correctly.
Protect Ring only gives +1 to Agility, but can cast Protect II when used as an item.
In the original version, Ring of Renewal generates a constant Regen status and provides +6 Defense and +5 Magick Resist. It is found in Accessories 16 on the License Board and costs 70 LP to use. It can be bought for 18,000 gil at the Necrohol of Nabudis, and is received as a reward for completing the sidequest "Ann and her Sisters" on the skyferries.
Ring of Renewal has the same stats and effect in the Zodiac versions, but now requires the Accessories 22 license for 160 LP. It can be found as a treasure in Great Crystal (Uldobi Phullam Udiipraa), and Pharos - Subterra (Penumbra - South), poached from Deadly Nightshade (5% chance) and stolen from Shield Wyrm (rare) in Trial Mode Stage 67, or obtained from the "Ann and her Sisters" sidequest.
