Speculation[edit]

Since speculation doesn't belong on the main article, I've moved both comments here so it doesn't get re-posted:

  • It is theorized that this item can be developed into a ring in the future. Source
  • One of a few theories are that Jewelcrafting will be increased to 500 and you will be able to craft legendary rings. -Source

I think it's used for making donuts, or at least what the end product would be if I tried to make one. - Doodleplex 23:07, 29 September 2016 (UTC)

You can upgrade the ring to an ascended one. Selectable stats, HoT included. No aura. Source: https://www.reddit.com/r/Guildwars2/comments/5htopl/strange_rock_upgrading/

Drop[edit]

I just had one drop from Rolling Devils in Ember Bay, so I assume it can be an extremly rare drop from mobs in Ember Bay, too. Added it to the wiki page Adalwolf (talk) 23:43, 6 January 2017 (UTC)

Can confirm. Do you know if it still drops if you attune or infuse the ring? Just in case it's an oversight by ANet. --— Cronos 00:26, 14 January 2017 (UTC)
Did you previously have the finished ring? Because if so, then this was already mentioned right below your note as "Once the player has acquired Rurik's Engagement Ring, the Strange Rock will also drop from enemies in Ember Bay." -Darqam 23:47, 6 January 2017 (UTC)
I just undid this edit without seeing these comments. Didn't think to verify if Adalwolf had the ring; apologies if my undo was premature. --Cali (talk) 00:24, 7 January 2017 (UTC)
I got a drop of one of these the other day, and I already had Rurik's Engagement Ring (bought a Strange Rock off the TP and went through the scavenger hunt steps myself). So it definitely does drop from enemies, although I'd hesitate to say that having the ring already is a prerequisite; it might just be a super rare drop from all enemies in the map. - Zaxares (talk) 06:54, 12 March 2017 (UTC)
I also just got a drop of one of these today. I was wearing an Attuned Infused version of the Engagement ring as it was easier to get on my alt acct anyways. So they do drop from enemies. Was quite a suprise too as I was unsure if it really did drop or not! Khani (talk) 23:05, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
I got one today. I already own 4 Rurik's Engagement Rings, but I never bought a skritt contract. The char that got the Strange Rock didn't wore one of the engagement rings by the time it gots the Rock. I've farmed Petrified Wood with hearts. I did not noticed it as a drop, but it was in my inventory at the end of the farm run. --Lexxa (talk) 23:32, 17 November 2019 (UTC)
