The Rare Ring (called Ring of Arcana in the North American version of Symphony of the Night, and Thief Ring in Portrait of Ruin, Order of Ecclesia and Harmony of Despair) is a ring which increases the chances enemies will drop rare items (not their common drops). It appears in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Harmony of Dissonance, Aria of Sorrow, Dawn of Sorrow, Curse of Darkness, Portrait of Ruin, Order of Ecclesia and Harmony of Despair. Depending on the game, it may also provide a Luck boost.
Empirical testing shows that in most cases it works as stated, but in Symphony of the Night it appears to increase the drop chance of common items instead.
