I don't like this, it(As far as I can tell) essentially gives people in-game advantages in exchange for money. =T I'm totally cool with Anet selling cosmetic crap, and I'll probably get the collector's edition, but I do not like how it seems like some of the stuff they're offering seem to give extra power to other players. Maybe just alternate skins for existing items would be a sufficient replacement.--GerrohUser Gerroh GerrohEmblem.gif 01:49, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

My Tiger's Roar gave me an advantage (though I don't recall ever using it). It's non-replicable, but the advantage was hardly out of step with other in-game items. 96.48.148.201 02:01, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
That's a pretty good point, and the band is probably weak as balls. But still, an elite skill seems like a big deal, and I would prefer if they just didn't offer anything like this altogether(Excluding the GW1 bonuses, 'cause you worked for those... sorta).--GerrohUser Gerroh GerrohEmblem.gif 02:06, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
The stats of the band will probably be able to be recrated in game anyhow. I doubt they'd make it OP. and the elite is probably weak too. Probably no different then any other elite that summons help. --Moto Saxon 02:24, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
In other games, these type of things are usually really good for the first 10-20 levels and then are weaker than any other items/elites you can get by then. User Mattsta Sig1.jpgUser Mattsta Sig2.jpg 03:07, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
As far as this getting you ahead, I think the 3 days headstart does more for your early advantage than this item. At lvl 12 the two trait points you get are already on par with this item.217.86.167.152 10:03, 22 March 2012 (UTC)
First you'll have to reach level 12 ... and as you get, you will use the ring. Lasha 10:07, 22 March 2012 (UTC)
This reminds me of GW1 /bonus weapons. They didn't help much after the very start. Khetnen 03:33, 8 April 2012 (UTC)
This item is unbelievably weak. +2 is basically nothing, starter level at best. 96.245.177.118 04:41, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

For when the 1 ring just doesn't cut it. -Auron 12:16, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

But...there is one ring to rule them all... Kormon Balser User Kormon Balser Tango-dervish-icon-small.png 15:22, 10 April 2012 (UTC)

Game advantage[edit]

Okay I didn't know this before so I guess some of you might not either. But there will be lots and lots of other rings to get, so chances are, that this ring will have a statistical equivalent that can be earned in game. I mean, its weak as balls anyway, and if all rings were this weak then I don't see why ANET would both, as they will hardly make a huge aesthetic difference.Think of it like those shitty items that came with "Guild wars the complete collection" none of which were usefull, all of which were nooby, most of which could be replicated, save the kinda usefull igneous stone thing. For the record I have prepurchase so it won't affect me, but if you have anything to moan about, let it be the Mistfire Wolf elite skill. Jumblehunter 21:26, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Looking at the stats, I'm going to go the extra mile and state that this accessory is actually completely unique. The 2 to all stats is basically a dead give-away; Guild Wars 2. Wow, okay, enough off-topic rambling from me for today. - Infinite - talk 21:47, 11 April 2012 (UTC)

Will this item be available for all characters I create after launch, or will I only get it on one character? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by 78.69.53.190 (talk).

I bet you're able to recreate this item as many times as you'd like on each character, please sign your comments in the future (~~~~) --you like that don't you..The Holy Dragons 14:19, 15 May 2012 (UTC)


Oh my god guys, you were right. This is the most broken piece of equipment available to players. Pay to win much? Don't get me started on the elite skill. Plain broken; I died to it once in WvWvW. 192.168.104.81 06:45, 17 September 2012 (UTC)

Broken Upgrade Slot?[edit]

During the August 21st stress test, I was unable to put any upgrade into my Hero's Band. Did anyone else have the same issue? --Emelend 18:51, 22 August 2012 (UTC)

I could upgrade it once, no more. Which means it's stuck with +3 Vit. Yay... (213.114.96.189 20:49, 19 October 2012 (UTC))

While I haven't experimented with it, it may be like the storyline back-slot reward item. Currently, it can only be fitted with no-req upgrade items... basically limiting you to tier 1 gemstones. --Thervold 22:06, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

You can salvage this. i salvaged it and got a copper ore, maybe you can exploit this by make thousands of characters then salvaging the ring? (20:27, 16 March 2013 (UTC)) bob --The preceding unsigned comment was added by 67.182.133.4 (talk).

What is the maximum level of upgrade components that can be placed into this ring?[edit]

There is no item level in the ring's description, so this is unclear. --175.156.243.239 23:40, 5 December 2017 (UTC)
