    Me too, between covenant rings, ring of atorias, and rings I use in specific situations (PvP, Bosses, certain levels...) it just doesn't make sense to put a ring on that will break if I remove it.

    Bah, I broke it last night by "mistake" (I was drunk out of my brains). I am regretting it... Im already SL 95, but I will miss this ring this playthrough!

    I agree with the above.

    For a sheer lack of alternative, I wear the FaP ring whenever I can.

    It also means that I don't have to wear those God awful Mother/Father masks to break the desired equip load...

    I use it until I get the dwg ring, then I combo the dwg ring with another ring. Usually the hornet ring, wolf ring, cloranthony ring ar a ring that is specific to the environment or pve situation like the cursebite, gold or silver serpent, rusted iron ring.

    I use it but only at low level as a boost. I found I was looking at it as too much of a crutch, not wanting to take it off etc. I forced myself to break it and move on around level 30 of my current strength build and havent really missed it. There are rings out there that are way more useful and to be honest now, I just kill Lautrec for the epic 5 humanity he also drops, which is very useful for lower level character builds and for boosting curse resistance prior to a trip to the Depths.

    I tend to go with Havel's if I'm tanking my currently +7 Elite Knight, along with maybe hornet or wolf and if I choose to switch to my other fave set, Crimson, currently +2 then I can drop Havel's in favour of maybe the Evil Eye for PVE or Cloranthy for PVP.

    I have 25 endurance and 20 vitality at level 60, so I dont feel the need to wear FOP anymore, Havel's does the job for me when I need the extra load boost for heavy armour and my Ghostlord Sword.

    Almost always, the stacking stamina regen greatly helps my aggressive playstyle. regen 2/3 the loss from a roll by the time the roll ends.

    I almost always equip it for PvP. Part of it is because I use heavy weapons, so the extra endurance and equip load is great. I can carry 8 more pounds of equipment with it (with the wood ring). If you use light dex weapons, it is far less important.

    I don't wear it or Havel's ring. I prefer to keep my ring slots open for other uses, like the ring of steel protection + wolf ring. I'll count on my equip load vs my end to allow me faster rolls.

    I use it currently. Super-fast regenerating stamina is great and all, but having more stamina means I can get one extra swing in with my fire zweihander while my enemy is held stunlocked before I'm drained and left vulnerable.

    I wear it when I start a new character until I get to 4 Kings, then I don't use it anymore, usually. It's fantastic early game, though. On my high level character I collect one each round and use them to gauge approx. what playthrough I'm on.

    ....the green blossoms, grass shield, MoC and Cloranthy ring stack.

    Ever try using all of them or even a combo of just 3? Your stamina bar fills back up almost instantly.

    Is the extra stamina that the RoF provides better than a virtually instant supply of "only" 160?

    I wasn't aware of this.

    i wear it mostly because it is just too good to pass up, it is not OP but i think compared to every other ring it is unbalanced

    I don't use it. The extra stamina would be nice, but it has less load than Havel's so I'd have to lose some Poise... If I could use my old armor set with it, I would, but I'd need another 6 endurance for that. Meh.

    I have only fast rolling Dex based builds and the extra Equip Burden is just what I need to use my favourite weapons. Havel's would do just as good, but RoFaP gives me extra HP and Stamina, so why not?

    My hybrid casters have 25 End and 30 Vit, so the ring really helps them out a lot.

    I wear it mostly for the little bit extra equip burden. But thats only if i cant at least med roll with the likes of kirks armour or the dark wraith armour if my focus isnt on endurance.

    But... Under 25 vitality, the health bar just looks... so small with it off.

    I dont like depending so much on rings but with my sunbro who really doesnt have so much end and hp i just NEED that ring. But i never use it with other chars. Not even with my STR one.

    I played Demons' Souls and had my stamina run out during fights. In this game I decided to "supercharge" my stamina.

    40 endurance + Favor and Protection + Mask of Child + Grass Crest Shield + Green Blossom.

    I now realize it was probably overkill. I never run out of stamina.
