The 1 Ring
The 1 Ring has very good stats for a level 10 ring (required level); rings of a comparable level buff one stat one point. Even so, 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.
The 1 Ring
So I finally got the 107 facts for the patreon video, but there is no way I can have it done by this weekend. So I'm going to pull up another nearly done script and do it today RQ instead. Here are like 25% ofthe facts from the 107 fact video 1 - wild hammer fact checker right next to falstad is red shirt guy. 2 - The quest which allows you to unlock your level 3 inn "stay awhile and listen" is based on the gossip line from Deckard cain ""Hello, my friend. Stay awhile and listen..."" 3 - The toads at the Pools of Purity (Rash, Zitz, and Pimple) are references to the old arcade game Battletoads 4 - The achievements granted for killing rares, [A Worthy Opponent], [Could We Find More Like That?] and [Glorious!] are all famous quotes from the Templar companion. 5 - Alone in the Darkness - Guild Edition: Alone in the Dark is an action-adventure horror video game with many references to Cthulhu, similar to the Yogg-Saron encounter it's an achievement for. 6 - Mortal Kombat The White Tiger Xuen seems to be a has of this. Along with his achievement [Finish Them!], he also says "Test. Your. Might!" when you accept his quests. 7- In the cockpit of the [Sky Golem] is a picture of the Queen of Blades 8 - Caramelldansen The female Pandaren's /dance is based off of the internet meme derived from this song. 9-In Dread Wastes resides a faction called The Klaxxi, that provide a large amount buffs as enchants and augmentations, and these buffs all have a name referring to some heavy metal song. Black Sabbath - Iron Man(tid) and Children of the Grave (enchantment) Slayer - Angel of Death and Raining Blood (enchantment) Queensrÿche - Silent Lucidity (enchantment) Deep Purple - Speed King (augmentation) Metallica - Seek and Destroy and Master of Puppets (augmentation) Manowar - Battle Hymn (augmentation) Judas Priest - Painkiller (augmentation) 10 - Members of the Shado-Pan faction will sometimes say: "We are the watchers on the walls." or "We are the sword in the shadows." These are very similar to some of the vows taken by members of the Night's Watch in the A Song of Ice and Fire novel series. Also the Shado-Pan themselves have many similarities with the Night's Watch. [Syrio's Gloves of Tutelage] and their flavor text are a reference to the character Syrio Forel from the A Song of Ice and Fire novel series. 11 - The quest Jumping the Shark takes its name from a popular expression meaning that a form of entertainment is declining in quality beyond recovery. 12 - joust The quests in the Firelands Hatchery play like a 3D version of the arcade game Joust, including similar enemies and controls. 13 - The achievement Do a Barrel Roll! is a reference to Star Fox 64. The line, which was delivered by Peppy Hare as advice to the player, became an internet meme. 14- A questline presented by Budd at Budd's Dig in Kelp'thar Forest revolves around a huge shark called Gnaws, a play on the movie title. The names of two quests, N  Dah, Nunt... Dah, Nunt... and N  DUN-dun-DUN-dun-DUN-dun reference the movie's musical theme, imitated with a human voice. An albeit unsuccessful attempt to kill Gnaws is to lure it into eating grubs loaded with gunpowder, which explodes when he bites it, a reference to the end of the movie, where the shark is killed by an oxygen tank exploding in its maw. Another obscure reference might be the fact that Gnaws' Boneyard is filled with orca remains. The boat in the movie was named after the orca, considered the only natural enemy of the great white shark. 15- Gimli and Legolas made their way to Warcraft and are Gidwin Goldbraids & Tarenar Sunstrike. They count kills like in the film. 16 -http://wow.gamepedia.com/The_1_Ring The ring is also present in game. Like Smeagol you'll find it while fishing. 17- The Jewelcrafting Cataclysm dailies in Orgrimmar/Stormwind reference characters and events from the series heavily: B [100 Daily] A Present for Lila - Lila has purple hair, is a ship captain and apparently only has one eye (left) but is still attractive, which are attributes of Turanga Leela as well. Bonder (Curver in the Alliance version) is apparently a thief, which his friends are oblivious about, and likes drinking, which describes Bender. "Bonder" was also how a fraud psychic called him in a séance. B [100 Daily] Elemental Goo and B [100 Daily] The Latest Fashion! mention (A) Professor Barnsworth and (H) Dr. Vernstrom, which stand for Professor Farnsworth and Dr. Wernstrom, rival scientists and mortal enemies. While The Latest Fashion! mentions disregard for the dangers of science/magic, as well as finding "other" uses for inventions that have proven to be dangerous, a trait of Farnsworth, the "hand stuck in jar" joke in Elemental Goo's completion text might refer to the series' "heads in jars". B [100 Daily] Nibbler! No! - Nibbler is a direct reference to Leela's pet of the same name, which can (and will) devour and digest anything, while its droppings are too heavy to lift. 18 - In Southern Feralas, near the Steam Pools, you can find a Goblin resort. This is where you can find Gordon Tramsay, , which is a clear reference to Gordon Ramsay, the host of the American cooking competition show. 19 - The quest http://wow.gamepedia.com/Quest:A_Bone_to_Pick references 2 things. references the episode Treehouse of Horror III where Homer attempts to purchase cursed frozen yogurt. The episode features a dialogue repeating an alternating "that's good" followed by a "that's bad" set of statements. Both the episode and the quest refer to a cursed item. And second, Pirates of the Carrabean, as there is cursed treasure that turns anyone who touches it into a skeleton. 20 - Insane Clown Posse The questB [85 Daily] Magnets, How Do They Work? is a reference to the song "Miracles" by Insane Clown Posse. A line from the song in question, "Fuckin' magnets, how do they work?" became an internet meme. [Psychopathic Hatchet] might be a reference to the group's label which they run named "Psychopathic Records" featuring a man with a hatchet as their logo. 21 - There's an NPC in Twilight Highlands called Mia the Rose, which is a reference to porn actress and WoW player Mia Rose. Rose plays a night elf female. 22- The description of the Archaeology item [Skull Drinking Cup], especially the line "So thirsty...." is a reference to Skulls!, one rare SFW strips of the mostly NSFW webcomic Oglaf. http://oglaf.com/skulls/ 23 - There is a flower merchant in Dalaran named Aerith Primrose. Aerith is a reference to Aerith Gainsborough, a major character of Final Fantasy VII, who wears a pink and red outfit similar in appearance to that of this NPC, and is also a flower seller. 24 - A sewer shark named "Segacedi" is located under the poison vendor in the sewers of Dalaran. This is a reference to the game Sewer Shark, released on the Sega CD add on for the Sega Genesis, also known as the Mega CD in European and Asian markets. 25 - The Scourge archers seen early on in the Death Knight quest chain are called Sky Darkeners, referring to this exchange from 300: "Our arrows will blot out the sun!" "Then we will fight in the shade." 26 - In Grizzly Hills, there are four NPCs located near each other with interesting names. These NPCs in question are one adult female deer named Mother of Bambina, a younger female deer named Bambina, a skunk named Flora and a small rabbit named Thudder. These four are clearly a reference to Bambi. 27 - In the quest H  It's All Fun and Games, you're asked to destroy the The Ocular, which floats above Shadow Vault's spires. The Ocular bears a strong resemblance to the eye of Sauron atop the tower of Barad-dûr from Lord of the Rings: Return of the King film. 28 - The item [Zod's Repeating Longbow] has "Kneel before him" in the flavor text. This is a reference to the movie's main villain, General Zod, who makes the President of the United States (and later tries to make Superman) bow before him with the phrase, "Kneel before Zod." 29 - In Howling Fjord (60,61) is McGoyver who is building an airplane, clearly a reference to MacGyver. 30 - In Howling Fjord, the Valgarde defenders are armed with rifles. Before killing approaching NPCs they yell "It's coming right for us." A reference to an early South Park episode dealing with the Second Amendment. It was explained that with the new changes in government you could only fire your weapons in self defense, therefore, hunters could legally shoot anything by claiming self defense, but only after yelling "It's coming right for us."
