i personally have found a couple of uses for it, the first is you can use it with the symbol of avariance to speed it up a bit, with high vitality it can be a little tiresome to wait for 5 hp per click, so why not double it? XD though my real use for it is pvp, yes you heard right, PVP! i use an assasin style character with the gold and silver tracers, backstab, never get hit. if i do, zero poise (use the ninja armor from the swamp coz it looks AWESOME!) if i get hit the game is over. doesnt really make a difference, though i do look badass with the eye over my head. it is not only for bragging rights, it does have some benefits. a fight with another player is more psychological than what really happens in the game, picture with me if you will, you go into the arena, or you're in the forest, and you see a ninja with the highest crit weapon in the game and they eye over their head coming straight at you at full speeds. every single person goes on the defensive, thinking i got mad skills coz i put the ring on to "challenge myself" while theyre not attacking i can easily get behind and backstab, while in reality a bare knuckled punch would make me flinch! not only that, my inbox is full of people "respectfully recognising" my skill, while in reality im really nothing special. the ring is though... the ring.. what more could one ask for from an ingame item that makes other players cower in fear? that my friends, is it's use!
