Obsidian Ring of the Zodiac is a legendary ring in Diablo III. It requires character level 50 to drop. When it was reworked for Season Three (patch 2.2.0), it was a season-only drop; it now drops for all characters.

The unique affix triggers once per cast (once per tick for channeled skills) for any damaging attack that costs resource (Hatred only for Demon Hunters; spending Discipline will not trigger the affix), and randomly reduces the cooldown of one currently recharging skill by one second. This ring is extremely powerful for builds relying on long-recharging skills such as Archon, Earthquake, Wrath of the Berserker, or Akarat's Champion.

Skills that have their normal resource cost removed for any reason—whether by a skill rune, Channeling Pylon, or item bonus—will not trigger this effect. For example, Blessed Shield will not trigger a cooldown reduction if Gyrfalcon's Foote is equipped, since the item bonus removes the Wrath cost of that skill.

It is one of the few legendary items having 7 properties. Prior to Patch 2.1, it was famous for both adding all core stats at once and a guaranteed bonus to all resistances.
