Lightning rings are rare items, similar to water, ice, fire rings, that allow one to summon a writhing COLOR spark that can be played with. Available colors noted include red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, brown, black, and white. These colors periodically shift to various hues of its assigned color. Due to its elemental nature, the spark will draw energy from its handler, generally about 1 mana per instance.
