Is this true? And would it stack with other threat gear with a different number, like the 10% from epic brawns spirits, 20% epic brigands cutlass, 30% epic gloves/bracers? of the claw set?

It was tested and does not increase threat.

I'm curious too, in the thread discussing this from last week http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=352634 they talk about trying to test it but there is no indication anyone had yet.

I also look at it this way.

It is a wiki, and what is the name of the item in question? :)

There are a few other items with hidden effects. The Bracers of Demon's consort has a chance to apply a negitive lvl to the wearer each time there are hit. For ages the elemental spell damage clickys used to say 50% even tho they did 75%. So it's very posible that the ring has the extra 15% threat, but it would be very hard to test.

I checked three months ago (http://forums.ddo.com/showpost.php?p=4048740&postcount=77) that the Ring of Lies does have a hidden 15% threat modifier to spell damage.

The Cow has spoken! Case closed. :D

So it's only spell damage? Here I was thinking it would work well as a charisma item for my sorcerer until I find something better. Oh well.

well, not quite. his testing only showed that the ring of lies *does* have threat increase for spells. at least in the specific post he linked, it says nothing about testing melee threat or ranged threat.

Karl had stated it was tested. The post says he messed something up now. He was testing melee threat.

Wasn't that before all the changes to Reaver's Fate items, though? I wonder if it's still true on the new version. It seems . . . perverse to have a ring with Deception/Improved Deception that also increases threat.

On the other hand, this is the same raid that offers boots that have potency/superior potency and yet prevent spellcasting.

It actually makes perfect sense if you think about it.
The Ring of Lies is an item that grants great power over social situations, making you much more charismatic, likable and believeable than you were before. Openly it makes you a paragon of personality and a master of social situations. Openly it makes everyone like you.
Secretly it makes everyone want to kill you.
The truth of the item is in it's name. It has a hidden purpose, which runs counter to it's visible purpose. It makes you a better liar, but it also lies to you.
It is the Ring of Lies.
