    I just finished going through all my 7 memory units, deleting profiles I havn't touched in months. Roughly 65% of those accounts had the DWGR equipped. So a lot of the builds were completely "ruined" now, and yet, I am glad the ring is gone.

    Well the Dark Wood Grain Ring was basically Havel's Ring, Wolf Ring, Ring of Steel Protection, etc combined before it was nerfed, after all.

    The DWGR was a crutch for many, myself included, and so it served the community greatly when Fromsoft decided to give it a bit of a nerf. twisted

    I never used when I equipped Havels or any other heavy stuff because it looked so daft when I rolled and it didn't do much anyway. I gave it a go on my Shadow warrior the other day though and it was fine. My triple back somersault in the piked position needs work though.

    The return of the Ninja Flipping Giants, it sounds like one of those poorly made b-movies you used to find on the Bravo channel! twisted

    A simple change in class from Knight to Bandit will give you one more stat point to invest, and if you dropped dex down by one you could then add another att slot for double WoG, or you could simply equip an ascended flame in your off hand and in the other slot Black Flame for when your opponents get up close and personal! big grin

    I am glad the ring is now at 25% equip load too. It now makes the light builds faster, who are meant to be faster than other builds in the first place.

    The DWGR was by far the best ring in the game before the patch with possibly the exception of the hornet ring.
    Saying that, the dark wood grain ring means we will see this build at the top of the arena leader boards if I decide to make it.

    Huh...i'm...i'm tempted to make one of these...i hate ninja flipping giant mothers of havel though...but...huh....i never used it much myself. I like looks over function, and hated how the flip looked.

    I'm glad its how it is now. Its roughly how it should have been at the start.

    I'm enjoying the game so much more without the DWGR in every build, and not just because it make big slow str weapons much more viable. The game is just more epic when you are barely midrolling out of the way instead of easily evading everything. Every successful midroll dodge just feels awesome, like this:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dnEzkbdTa0I&feature=player_detailpage#t=89s

    In many ways its been like playing the game for the first time. I basically had to relearn every boss fight, and couldn't just assume that rolling was a safe counter to everything. I also love how you can date a youtube video by whether or not everyone is flipping around like idiots.

    Seeing people ninja flip is ok with me, but seeing people in huge, heavy armor ninja flip is just silly. With that armor, they should have evasion capabilities of a rock.

    I actually did some Forest hunting by flipping in full Havel's a few days ago just for the sillyness of it. My only weapon was PGS and I used some miracles and pyro. It was more effective than I thought.

    I'm glad I had made all my 120 builds future-proof! silly No DWGR on any of them, ever.

    I still remember the first time I got the ring. Coming from Demon's Souls, I thought it was the coolest thing, and so unexpected, that a ring would change your rolling into a Ninja Flip! At first I thought it was just a novelty... little did I know that it would eventually become the most game-breaking piece of equipment. To this day, even after the patch, I can't see a ninja-flip without cringing.

    Pretty much all of my builds now have FaP and either Wolf or Havel's equipped save for my darkstalker (Wolf/Hornets) and my hyper mode mage (Bellowing, Rtsr)

    I'm glad it was nerfed, the fast rolling battles give a DeS nostalgia so special.
