WoW Items – The Rings of Power (Lord of the Rings reference)

Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

You can find some of the rings of power in game, and most of them are found from fishing or in the bags you get from fishing dailes.  WoWWiki states that this is probably related to the fact that Gollum found the One Ring in the river after it had been lost.

the 1 ring

This item, The 1 ring,  is fished up in major cities. Apparently you can also get it from Mr Pinchy’s container.

the 2 ring

You have to laugh at the stats on The 2 ring.  You can get this ring from the fishing bag reward doing the Shattrath fishing dailies.

the 5 ring

The 5 ring drops from the Northrend Fishing daily bag.  I guess we know why there are no 3 and 4 rings… and I do like the pattern of the stats in all these rings.

How could a fantasy game NOT have some reference to Tolkein’s Lord of the Rings!  I’m surprised I can’t find more.
