Skyrim:Ring of Hircine
|Daedric Artifact: Ring of Hircine (0002ac60)|
The Ring of Hircine is a Daedric Artifact given to the player by Hircine as one potential reward for completing Ill Met By Moonlight. Originally discovered as a cursed ring, the player is given the ring by an imprisoned werewolf named Sinding. After acquiring the ring, it will automatically equip on the player, not being able to be removed until you complete the quest. As another downside, werewolves will discover that the ring causes them to randomly transform into their beast form. The ring can either be restored or returned to Hircine depending on the player's actions. If the player kills Sinding, he or she will lose the Ring of Hircine, only to receive Savior's Hide in its place. If the player helps Sinding kill the hunters pursuing him, he or she will be rewarded by Hircine by being allowed to keep the ring, sans the curse.
The restored version of the artifact allows werewolves additional transformations into their beast form per day via the Ring of Hircine power accessible from the Powers menu. This does not affect the original Beast Form power, which only grants one transformation per day.
