I think a better general full time ring is Omega's ring. While Balhrahn's is better inside Assaults/Salvage, Omega's ring is better outside.
Yeah, and Omega + Balrahn's is the best combo for when you need M.Acc on anything in any zone. You can have both, and both can be useful no matter how many rings you have. I'm not much of a believer in any "full time" ring for mages, but you can have a pretty small set that is useful for any circumstance (though maybe not maximized for every situation) if you go Tamas/Balrahn's/Omega.
That being said, I'm a COR (and almost to 50RNG, plan to take it to 75 at some point). I went Jalzahn's because it's unique and quite powerful. How many times are there mission rewards for ranged attackers? Good mix of R.Acc/R.Atk all the time, and OMGAmazing in Assault areas.
Ulthalam's is nice too, and I definitely get a kick out of people who still wear Sniper's/Woodsman rings who say Ulthalam's isn't that impressive. I sacrificed a bit for my PUP and MNK by passing on it in favor of a piece for my COR, and I generally use Rajas + Iota. But I did that because Jalzahn's is more unique.
