Final Fantasy IX description

The Protect Ring (守りの指輪 or まもりの指輪, Mamori no Yubiwa?), also known as Protector Ring, Protection Ring, Ring of Resistance and Ring of Renewal, is a recurring piece of armor and accessory in the series. It can be classified either as a ring, or as an armlet. It usually defends against Instant Death or grants the user the Auto-Protect status.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Final Fantasy[edit | edit source]

Ring that guards against instant death.

Description

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).

Final Fantasy II[edit | edit source]

A ring affording protection against instant death.

Description

The Protection Ring boosts Defense by 18 and protects against the element Death. It drops from Lamia Queen, and is found in Raqia.

Though the Protection Ring prevents Instant Death from the spell Death, it does not protect against Instant Death inflicted by the Warp or Teleport spells, which are Matter-elemental.

Final Fantasy III[edit | edit source]

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).

Final Fantasy IV[edit | edit source]

Ring resistant against fire, ice, and lightning.

Description

The Protect Ring resists all elements. It can be found in the Lunar Subterrane, and drops from Ahriman and Magic Dragon. It provides +10 Defense, +12 Evasion, +5 Magic Defense, and +10 Magic Evasion.

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.

Final Fantasy IV: The After Years[edit | edit source]

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.

Final Fantasy V[edit | edit source]

Ring with same effect as Regen.

Description

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.

Final Fantasy IX[edit | edit source]

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 bought from Mene for 8,500 points, or synthesized for 40,000 gil, Rebirth Ring, and Dark Matter at Hades's synthesis shop.

Final Fantasy XII[edit | edit source]

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.
