The Forgotten Crown, or more commonly referred to as Crown, is tied with the Magical Lodestone for the highest DPS-stat increasing ring, with both providing a large +12 to offensive stats. The crown also offers a good amount of HP and is a direct upgrade from the Captain’s Ring.
The crown is a excellent choice for any class, as its even boost to ATK and DEX gives all classes a relatively uniform DPS boost, and the +110 HP bonus on top of that allows the wearer to still maintain a good level of survivability.
However, classes with wismod or otherwise use their ability often, like Sorcerers, Necromancers, Paladins, or Priests may find better general use in a ring that boosts WIS or MP, like a Bloodshed Ring, Sourcestone, or Omnipotence Ring.
Additionally, players with access to Oryx’s Sanctuary may find the rings dropped there to be situationally stronger than the crown:
The Collector’s Monocle is a straight upgrade to the crown on a Rogue, offering an additional 30 HP and an unbeatable +20 to offensive stats when you shoot while invisible, which has essentially 100% uptime due to the cooldown being much shorter than the buff duration. If you have a Turncoat Cape, any leather class can make effective use of the proc, especially with the recent buff to the invisibility duration.
The Chancellor’s Cranium may be more useful to melee classes (or players who like to play at shorter range). It adds an additional 10 HP and 6 DEF compared to the crown, and while it only offers 3 DEX in offensive stats, its special ability can potentially make up that damage lost in a unique way, assuming you are within range for it.
The Divine Coronation with its recent buff offers the same amount of HP and an additional 5 DEF and 55 MP compared to the crown, which may be worth the offensive stat tradeoff of 6 ATT for 2 DEX, especially for lower-DEX classes or those that use their ability often.
The Exalted God’s Horn is a strong alternative to the crown on many classes, trading 6 ATT for 4 DEX above 90% HP and granting an additional 30 HP and 5 DEF. Below this threshold the Horn trades 6 ATT and 6 DEX for 30 HP and 5 DEF. Low DEX classes like Knight, Warrior, Archer, Huntress, Samurai, and potentially even Priest and Paladin may find comparable DPS boosts alongside even stronger defensive bonuses, and other non-dagger classes may find the additional survivability worth the offensive stat tradeoff.
Nonetheless, the crown remains as one of the most sought after rings in the game due to its great balance of DPS boosting and survivability, and is a powerful choice for any class to wear (assuming that you have one).
Before Patch X.33.1.0 (May 2020), this item had a Feed Power of 500.
