    I know that on my first playthrough the stoneplate rings helped me quite a bit. I used them whenever I hit a wall so I could focus more on my offense than my defense when leveling to overcome a challenging area/boss. (Though to be honest my defense is far more developed than my unfocused offense, I am still learning after all.) Although, it would be cool if they could be made to scale somehow to remain relevant in later runs.

    Now offcourse since these characters are sl 80 and they roll like obese turtles its best to use them for co-op in areas where they defend best in.
    But yeah I think the stone plate rings can defiantly strengthen a low armourd character or further strengthen a tank.
    It's very, very, very rare that it's worth sacrificing the +40 Poise of the Wolf Ring or the 50% extra carrying capacity of Havel's Ring for just a tiny token boost to some miscellaneous defences.
    Why would you ever need more than 100 poise? Even if you threw on the havels ring to either of the builds i showed, your still gonna fat roll, so better defense is better than pointless stat increase that changes nothing.

    The stoneplate rings are great for specialized defense boosts when you know what is coming. I used the lightning one for Ornstein and smough, the magic one for seath, and the steel (physical defense) one for many other situations, including the first hydra (the projectiles are physical damage as far as I know)

    I was talking about ring choices in general, not for the builds you posted specifically. Those builds would probably be superb against the enemies they're geared up against. I'm just saying that it's more rare to need a bit of extra elemental resistance than it is to need extra poise or carrying capacity.

    160 Poise should be enough to take two two-handed hits by an Ultra Great Sword in a row without getting staggered. I'd say that's pretty good.

    The Ring of Steel Protection and stoneplate rings helped my character a lot untill I found better armor. They are really nice for a new character.

    if you're a dragon the plate rings, all the defense and resistance rings really, are invaluable. but you have to continually swap them around as the situation changes.
