    Most underappreciated ring

    Post by Aznul on Sun Nov 18, 2012 8:49 pm

    What do you think is the most underappreciated ring? (Though being underappreciated would imply that it is in fact useful) Personally I think it is the ring of the evil eye, since that is great for skeleton babies.

    Ring of Sacrefice. It really usefull if you get Invaded after Dying.
    A: You don't lose your Bloodstain.
    B: The invader GET'S NOTHING.

    WAIT WHAT! the ring of sacrifice prevents invaders from receiving any souls!?!?

    I was going to vote blue tearstone because with good defense the extra 50% defense saves your life from combos, avelyn, and namely hollow fury combos.

    Really? I didn't know the invader didn't get anything if you use a ring of sacrifice. That's great for getting griefed or ganked

    I think they meant that if you die and are running back to your souls, wear the ring, that way if you are ganked, you get another try for your souls. And in addition, since your ganker killed you while you have no souls, they get nothing as well.

    Being killed by an invader doesn't work that way though. They don't get the souls you have, I think it was decided they get the difference in souls you have for level up. For example if you need 100,000 souls to level than that's what they get. Otherwise invaders would get nothing pretty regularly. Say for people who just PvP in the forest or the Kiln all the time and have constant fights without PvEing in between. You die pretty often without having any souls in your inventory.

    I also think ring of sacrifices are under appreciated, i always have 1-3 on me. With 99 humanity i never risk dying from a stupid fall death or something on the way back to my bloodstain. Only place i get lazy is the burg. I think we have all, at some point, went to attack the undead coming up the stairs and ended up bouncing off their heads to our death.


    I don't know if i would pick that though, i might have to agree with the blue tear stone. Even though i rarely use it, 50% added defense can quite substantial. Especially for a full havels(99humanity) tank or something. I wouldn't ever always have it equipped though, just menu swap.

    There really aren't even all that many rings in the game, and most are fairly useful. To be honest TC, i think ring of the evil eye is on par with east wood grain ring as being the most useless in the game.

    If you combine it with some other things it can be pretty useful. Say if you wanted to sustain power within for as long as possible, the use of the RotEE in combination with Sanctus and a weapon that restores health when used, like the Server or the Butcher Knife can be useful. It can greatly increase the power of pretty much every action you take.

    As for me I think I'm going to say the Hawk Ring. I haven't discovered much of a practical use for it outside of sight seeing and maybe PvP trap laying, but if you combine it with the Pharis Bow and Feather arrows it's crazy how far you can shoot. I was sniping hollows from the bonfire at Firelink Shrine the other day, just for fun.

    Well it is literally only "useful" in pve, i could maybe see it being useful sl30 and under. To save flasks by killing easy enemies, but even then its just not very realistic. Cause if you take ANY damage while fighting the enemies, it will usually do more then 30dmg.

    Ring of Sacrefice dosen't prevent Invaders from getting your Souls. I just troll them by dying. (Bloodstain is always besides me) Taunting them when they invade or waste their time. And when they kill me, they get nothing and i lose nothing. (The Ring prevents your bloodstain to go away. Poorly written. Sorry.)

    I use the Hawk Ring almost all the time but then my bow is my favourite weapon and I don't PvP. Coupled with the Ring of Fog I can take down most enemies before they even see me. For example I was being kicked all over the place trying to take down Ciaran (Arty's bird) for her armour in ng+, especially as she stopped me healing. I devised a strategy whereby I stood in the archway equipped with the RoF, zoomed in with the Hawk ring and shot her, then dashed up the stairs to the right, waited for her to resume her position by the grave, then rinse & repeat. Worked like a charm and she never laid a finger on me.

    I've said it before (Two days ago?) that if you use a Greatbow and the Hawk Ring. You can easly Farm Titantie from the titanite Demon in Lost Izalith. Put the Gold Serpent Ring on and you will normaly get 2 Demon Titanites.

    The funny part about this is, I never thought the hawk ring was underappreciated because I thought everyone loved it as much as I did.lol! I love using it for any situation where I have a straight shot to the enemy because I can kill them off without setting foot in their aggro range.

    I think he drops them everytime he dies, even with 100 item drop rate.

    Also, I think the East Wood is underappreciated. It's great if your using crystal weapons.

    It implies that the ring is good, and there are no good rings that aren't used a lot. I would consider the Hawk Ring to be near the top of this list. I have trouble thinking of it in a purely PvX aspect, I want to think PvP, because anything goes in PvE (I mean ring of evil eye or, well not the tiny being's ring). In PvP the extra range is worthless, due to lag, and just the random movement of players, you'd never hit one at max range, and he could just heal. In PvP, its not that good, but the extra range is crazy, and it does give it a nice increase in damage in the effected area (ie, usually there would be fall off, but since you have more range, there isn't, and you do more damage.

    Yes he drops 2 every time it's the titanite pole that's not a guaranteed drop. It's not a rare drop either so if you farm enough you will get one no problem without the gold serpent ring.

    i always try to equip the ring of the evil eye as a phantom during co-op, you don't even have to kill the mobs to get a health boost because it doesn't matter who kills the mob, as long as they die you get health back. it's supper helpful when your host is being stingy with the estus.

    I would say Dusk Crown Ring. It does give great power, but it comes with a price.

    Hahaha, WOW. Lots of times I'll keep the Hawk Ring on for playthroughs on my main guy, but I've never tried that kind of thing. Sounds fun.

    ^ Yeah with the combination of those three things it's unbelievable the kind of range you can get and still do decent damage. At least one example of it being a viable tactic that I can think of is crossing the beams in Anor Londo. You could totally snipe all 3 of those Painting Guardians before you get anywhere near them. I'm sure there's plenty of other useful things it could be applied to as well.

    Can anyone confirm it? Seems to me they may have thought the souls the victor gets are based on how many souls the loser was holding, which is not the case.

    I'm pretty sure it doesn't work this way. I'll help test it out though if somebody else wants to also. Obviously we'd need 2 people.
