I got this message while on slayer.

I have recently started playing after a break of like 6-7 months, a lot of things have changed (as usual)... Is it of any significance? any links where I can read up some information?

The message says Your ring of wealth shines more brightly

They updated the ROW to give better drops more frequently, and added a sort of ROW only drop table that can be accessed from any valid monster (I believe). It shining like that indicates the drop you just recieved came from the ROW, to make its effect more obvious.

Yeah that happens...but some apparently "trash" drops can be worth quite a bit. For example, I was slaying black demons and I got a 900k pure ess drop.

So at least check the drop pile, and pick it up if its noted/stackable to check the # of items.

This is wrong.
That message means the ring activated and gave you a CHANCE of a Row only drop; but it doesn't mean you got something. At least half the the time you don't get anything when you see that, its jsut there to placate the noobs who whined their row wasn't working

Just to make it clear to the OP the ROW drop table does not require a ROW to be worn. Should really use another ring (Berserker!).

Yes it does, that's why its the row drop table.
Row affect chance of drops from the rare drop table AND opens the row only drop table.

No row = no row drop table.
The ROW drop table was a new addition when row was updated in an attempt to make it more "worthwhile" as it contains some good drops that are impossible to get without the ring.
People get confused because they also added more drops to the "Rare" table on a lot of monsters and people blindly assume ring sparkling = row drop table. But it doesn't it means the row activated and gave chance of row drop and/or improved odds of rare drop table.

Oh well HARk me! I have been told on numerous occasions by people in game and on this forum that you do not need the ROW to access the new drops introduced with its update - indeed myself while using a zerker ring have received some of these supposed 'ROW only' drops.

To access new drops in general no, to access to the row only drops you do.
Like I said people get muddled cause jagex added new rare drops AND row only drops; people just seem assume all the new drops are Row drops because "Row drops" got mentioned in that update and the drops first appeared after that update.

Jagex confirmed the "row only" drops do need row worn hence the name, I'll see if I can dig up the link to where they said it.

I can't actually find any mentioned of the "row only" drops now.
I get the feeling it may be something players invented refering to the new drops that are just part of the rare table or perhaps a jmod used it casually and its been taken to literally.
Even KB and news post on the row update don;t seem to mentioned it, though I swear they did at launch.

Either way for the OP all the good drops don't NEED you to wear row or even use it; these "row only" drops seem to be a myth; even rs wiki has pretty much removed all reference to em now.

Wow, that cleared a lot. So to sum it up, the ROW is as useless as it was?

Pretty much, though it does help with bork, barrows, pp, clue scrolls and stuff like tht now. But for monster fighting its still pretty meh.

Slightly increased chances of monsters dropping better items from the Rare drop table whenever the rare drop table is accessed. Consequently, for any creature that only occasionally causes the ring to glow when killed, the drop can be said for certain to be on the rare drop table.

A slight increase in the drop chances of many rare items obtained uniquely from Slayer monsters and various bosses that are entirely separate from the rare drop table (for example, sigils from the corporeal beast). The ring glows every time such a creature is killed, as it always has an effect on the likelihood of the unique item being dropped.
