I thought it's use was in wilderness, where you cannot be hit whilst wearing it? Just wait until the pkers disappear? I don't own one so i don't really know. --Eucarya 08:21, 21 July 2006 (UTC)
- It's the same as the Easter Ring. It gives you no advantages...when attacked you unmorph. The Wilderness thing was one of the infinite rumours circulating at the time regarding it, 'cos it was a nifty piece of kit back then. Anyone remember only being able to defeat TzTok-Jad while wearing one? Vimescarrot 09:57, 21 July 2006 (UTC)
That model was definitely NOT in RS1. RS1 used 2D sprites, not 3D models. Although the rocks in RS1 did look a lot like that, and that's what they looked like in the beginning of RS2, that model was not used in RS1. 184.108.40.206 23:26, 7 March 2009 (UTC)
Their worth is relative to the Onyx stone, not because of its use. --Moobies1 03:10, 5 December 2006 (UTC)
Now its only 680k...for now =]
I have an idea...
- Great idea, just take millions into the Wilderness when it won't benefit you in a combat situation. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 06:52, 23 May 2007 (UTC)
- bone brooch works just as well, and is FREE (if you did the holiday event)
I don't suppose that when you turn into a stone with this ring, that it hides you from the mini-map? Arpaleggia 12:19, 16 February 2008 (UTC)
Players are buying a lot of these rings
The sentence starting with that seems to be slightly incorrect. When looking at the GE sales of it, it is down nearly 40% since a month ago. Dsctatom 07:37, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
Runescape website quote "What does the ring of stone do?
The ring of stone grants you the ability to turn yourself into a rock, any attempts to do anything other than type via the chat box will cause the user to return to normal.
It may also have other magical abilities which are unknown at this time." http://www.runescape.com/kbase/viewarticle.ws?article_id=2161

When the ring is used in King's Ransom, is it consumed, or do you get it back? Mage24365 18:37, November 29, 2009 (UTC)
Ring of Skull?
So that's how you can turn into a pile of stone. I wondered how people did that. I also see people who appear to be skulls, is there some item like this that does that?
Sliding around, eh?
Sliding glitch surely haven't been worked out, yet it's quite simple. As example certain 'tools' used to perform it, as example then, commorb(v2 tho), scanning a scan after another, spamming the option, whilst charater actually attempting to go to clicked location , this some what 'holds' the charater, even that it really is moving, while not the charater, but then again it is, complicated issue indeed, but yeahhyy, while this spamming, you'd simply turn into stone after stopped it, charater turns into stone, slides to spot where account was going, or actually, is.. This surely occurs with easter ring & bone brooch, too - obviously.
Also do add when that glorious day comes by, that some1 actually dwells in here, do notice to update about rock's matching with those of karamja, etc stones, since they be updated, all of them, none to remain matchable with the rock from the ring, aye?
Warning: Fake Edits about Ring of Stone by Smokin Mils Clan
Warning: Keep an eye out for fake edits on the Ring of Stone by a popular manipulation clan called "Smokin Mils". Recently there has been a lot of photoshopped images (FAKE Youtube Videos too)of jagex claiming the stone is going to be updated but then the statement being quickly edited out 5 minutes after it was posted in the BTS. These are all fake. The Smokin Mils website also has several threads from higher ups telling their members to spam the RSOF with threads claiming the stone is going to be updated and spread as much as rumors as possible. Recently, a particular spam thread got the attention of a Jmod on the RSOF which was locked as price manipulation further proving that the this is indeed FAKE. QFC: 16-17-519-62841394
Please be wary of buying the stone for purposes of making quick cash, you'll probably lose it as the ring is not going to be updated.
P.S. the only way the ring would be updated is if Jagex were to update how the stones look when you transform in them because of the update to various mining rocks a month or so ago. Remember we already have the Onyx Ring (i) which effectly makes making onyx rings semi worthwhile again. A lot of items are useless/cosmetic in RuneScape, the Ring of Stone is no different.
- That has got to be one of the cheapest scams I have seen! Thank God a J-Mod has now locked that thread. 23:14, June 10, 2011 (UTC)
I was wondering: what's up with the price, it's basically a useless item - so people use it for 'status' or money show-off? that's why it's so expensive? Leon Art 14:21, June 22, 2011 (UTC)
Effectively, it's tied in with the fact that onyx rings are used to make onyx ring(i) and the price on onyx, thus making this item hard to come by...or something. Teh alch 05:41, October 6, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, I know, but if it's useless, it's useless... and then I don't understand why the price is so high.07:15, October 6, 2011 (UTC)
