Played by itself, the Ring of Barahir offers a pretty good trade off of 1 resource for 1 hit point. But if you really want it to shine you'll need to give it to Aragorn so you can take advantage of his other artifacts like Celebrían's Stone and Sword that was Broken. All three of these attachments on him make him a 5 , 3 , 2 , 8 resource smoothing beast! The Ring of Barahir also shines in the SAGA quests with all the artifact treasures and most importantly The One Ring. That gets put on your hero at setup making the Ring a Barahir a 2 hit point boost for 1 resource on the first round if you draw it in your opening hand. Or you could fetch it with The Grey Wanderer contract and get the 2 hit points for free.
