    How many people do you think rely on RoFaP and DWGR?

    Post by bloodpixel on Fri Feb 24, 2012 4:06 am

    So lately I gave up those rings for different rings. But then I wondered: How many people rely on these two rings? I daresay that they are the most commonly used rings.
    So, A question to you is: Do you rely on one of things rings, both, or none?

    I use the ring of fap so that I may focus on other stats, but when my build nears completion I switch it for something more useful.

    The darkwoodgrain ring however is almost necessary for pvp. You can argue any way you want but for me it saves me with the extra equip load. I usually have the wolf or hornet ring in my second slot.

    The DWG ring is essential if you want a fair chance at PvP. Ring of fap (yes I spelt that right) is kinda weird, only useful if you have no better rings you want to use. HP/stamina/weight bonus is sweet, but it doesn't have a direct effect on anything.

    The fap ring is more of a luxury since you only get to wear it once per playthrough, but the dark wood ring of bullsh1t is vital if you want to be able to compete against every other heavy armour wearing hornet ring flipping cun7 online. And yes, it needs nerfed.

    I use both, and frankly the DWGR is pretty much needed for PvP unless you're a 25% rolling badman.

    RoFaP I use on most of my builds as I prefer it's bonuses to other rings, but i do rely on it with my magic/melee hybrids, as I sacrifice Vit and End for higher combat stats, which i then balance back out to competitive levels using the ring.

    I use both since I started to this post.

    For my playstyle there is none better.

    Yes, they're the most commonly used rings (hornet's ring is also a contender). But I really wish people would stop raging about them, particularly DWGR. Flipping tanks aren't immortal. They look stupid, but so do a lot of builds. The added defense you get from wearing heavy armor isn't all that meaningful in 120+ plus pvp, particularly if you're packing 99 humanity. The poise is really handy, but you can easily get 55 poise while fast rolling without DWGR. This isn't to say that DWGR isn't a fantastic ring, but it's not breaking the game.

    Countdown to negative reps and rage posts about how DWGR ruins the entire game...3...2...1...

    I wear the DWGR simply for the added weight so I can get some poise on my mage. I don't find the flipping animation all that useful and would easily switch it out for havel's if I could wear the same equipment (for looks mainly), but alas, it puts me over the 25% mark by just enough so DWGR it is.

    I've never used the ring of FAP FAP FAP... too much of ring switcher to be tied to it.

    The health and equipment load bonuses for the Ring of FaP become obsolete at higher levels, but the damn ring is still hard to let go of; since it is the only way in the game to increase your stamina over 160.

    The difference between 192 (the max with FaP) and 160 can be an extra swing or three that saves your life.

    this except for my gloves.

    Obviously if you take away any you would have to change your equipment to fit the new equipload.
    I always stay at 50% weight and if I need a ring in PVE (charred ring etc) i replace the DWGR, becouse light rolls arent that crucial in PvE

    I have a Silver Serpent Ring and Either the princess or the God of War Miracle Ring. Or both, if not using the Silver Serpant. It is all I need. Who needs to flip, and who needs extra vitality and endurance, when you can kill enemies with a hit or two, and get a chunk laod of extra souls? Answer, no one.
