LotR Sol Rings Guide

You’ve probably already heard about the one-off card in existence, the One Ring. While opening that one is near impossible, there’s another set of rings. These are still rare, breathtakingly beautiful, and perhaps even more playable. We’re talking, of course, about the LotR Sol Rings.

In today’s article, we’ll answer all the questions you might have about them, including:

  • How many LotR Sol Rings are there?
  • Where can you open LotR Sol Rings?
  • What are the odds for opening a Sol Ring with Elvish inscription?
  • And More!

As you can see, we have quite a lot to talk about, so we better get right to it.

Three Different Sol Rings

Tales of Middle-earth set is bringing us three different versions of the Sol Ring. A human, elven and dwarf version. All versions have the following text (The Ring Verse) written on them:

Three rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,

Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,

Nine for mortal men doomed to die,

One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne;

In the Land of Mordor where the shadows lie.

Of course, that’s not written in plain English, but in Quenya, the language of High Elves, in Tengwar letterforms. You can find all of them below:

Where Can You Open a LotR Sol Ring?

You can only open these Sol Rings in a Tales of Middle-earth Collector booster. They can be found in boosters of any language, not just in English ones.

Odds for Opening LotR Sol Ring

All of these are available in two versions:

  • Non-serialized, non-foil
  • Serialized, with double rainbow foiling

Both versions come in limited quantities, but only the serialized ones will have a number printed on them, indicating exactly which ring is in a player’s possession.

In the following table, you can find out exactly how many of each Sol Ring will be printed, and also the odds for opening one in a Collector booster or in a Collector booster box.

Sol RingQuantityOdds (booster)Odds (box)
Human non-serialized9,000<0.3%<3.6%*
Dwarven non-serialized7,000<0.25%<3.0%*
Elven non-serialized3,000<0.1%<1.2%*
Human serialized900<0.03%<0.36%*
Dwarven serialized700<0.025%<0.3%*
Elven serialized300<0.01%<0.12%*

* These odds are calculated based on the odds for opening a Sol Ring in a single booster.

As you can see, Wizards decided to go with the flavor of 9 rings for humans, 7 for dwarves, and 3 for elves. Thankfully, they upped that number quite a bit, so there’s a better chance of actually getting them.
