#!markdown I tend to run Race Face and Wolf's Tooth, but have used a bunch of other brands at various times. I do keep an eye on my chain wear and I do not push them aggressively to save a few bucks, which I think [no data to back it up] is why my drivetrains do not suffer premature wear. That said I don't do anything different with my NW rings vs. the standard rings I have used and the NW rings don't wear any differently…or at least to the degree that the difference is noticeable. I've also never heard anyone I ride with mention accelerated wear on NW rings, but chainring wear is just not a topic that comes up. These folks ride regularly year round and I don't see new rings on their bikes particularly frequently.
