    What is the worst ring?

    Post by ICEFANG on Sat Jul 28, 2012 11:56 pm

    Alright, in your opinion, which ring is the worst in the game, why? This isn't a PvE or PvP, consider everything about each ring and combine them. Ring of Evil Eye has almost no purpose in PvP right? But does that make it the worst, even though its not a bad ring in PvE (I think anyway).

    This question is solely based on how well the ring does, is it good? I understand if you hate DWGR, but the ring is good.

    I only have 20 poll choices, I bunched some together and removed some choices that have little to none combat effect on you, or are considered very/extremely good, if you feel like it deserves special mention and have good reason to back up your claims, I will put down right here what ring, and how many votes it has.

    One more thing, try not to consider how the ring does in comparison to other rings. It is completely understandable that you would want to, but while the Tiny Being's Ring has really no purpose over the RoFaP (even using both is usually worthless), and its often worst than Ring of Steel Protection, think of its values and compare them to all the other rings.

    Here are rings I removed because I think they are too good to even be considered for this, if you disagree, let me know.
    Cloranthy Ring
    Dark Wood Grain Ring
    Ring of Favor and Protection

    Here is the list of ring I removed because I feel they have a limited effect, too limited to be worn almost at all.
    Ring of Sacrifice
    Rare Ring of Sacrifice
    Darkmoon Blade Covenant Ring
    Rusted Iron Ring
    Covetous Silver Serpent Ring
    Covetous Gold Serpent Ring
    Covenant of Artorias
    Orange Charred Ring
    Old Witches Ring
    Cat Covenant Ring

    *because I didn't have enough room for all of them, the protection rings include Ring of Steel Protection, Spell Stoneplate Ring, Flame Stoneplate Ring, Thunder Stoneplate Ring. If you feel like one of a few of these are the worst, but not all, please vote for it, and write details of your opinion.

    **Bloodbite Ring, Poisonbite Ring, Cursebite Ring. Same details as above.

    I would prefer if you voted before reading opinions (mine included), and voiced your opinions after, but you can change your vote if you feel that another person is more correct.

    My own opinion:
    Spoiler:
    I feel there are 2 big contenders for this, East Wood Grain Ring and Blue Tearstone Ring. I have trouble choosing between the two. I have never heard anyone talk about the East Wood Grain Ring (poor fellow has always had trouble filling his brother's those(

    Hawk Ring. I haven't even considered that ring at all. At least tiny's gives you 100 more HP with 99 Vit, and EWGR could be useful for crystal rapiers/uchis.

    Really? Hawk Ring adds a lot of attack power/range to bows. It doesn't help most bows that people use (like Composite or Dragonslayer), but it makes PvE, even easier, you are in no danger against any enemy with that ring and nearly any bow at any level. I personally like it for my Black Bow character, but I'm not too good at PvP with a bow either, just my opinion, not trying to defend the ring exclusively.

    Tiny Being, that thing gives such a low hp boost.

    Attack power? I thought it only added range. Isn't BBoP's range enough? I really didn't used bows in PvE except the short bow for cutting the bridge dragon's tail.

    I use the hawk ring all the time, but not for fighting (and not in the princess' chamber either silly).
    I voted tiny, the effect is just too small to make a difference (unless it has an awesome hidden feature). At 2000 HP it will add another 100, meaning almost any other ring will outclass it.

    Also, one ring this game is lacking is the Ring of the Accursed, can't understand why there is no equivalent in dark souls.

    It doesn't really add attack power, but it does increase range, sometimes you can't get closer and the increased range adds power to it, considerable power.

    What does that ring do? I never played much Demon's Souls even though I would have liked to.

    Slumbering dragon, since as an invader you don't have any sound anyway, and you can just use chameleon to avoid enemies.

    Voted dusk crown. More casts for half HP is not worthy IMO

    I can see ONE build that can benefit from that, though >_>

    Edit: http://tinyurl.com/cj9rvmp

    said build. You're already dead if you get hit, so why not shoot yourself an elephant?

    There are a lot of the rings in the game which I believe to be worthless during my playthroughs and even more so for PvP, but the Tiny Being's Ring is the one ring that serves my character absolutely no purpose whatsoever. At first, I thought it was just because I didn't have enough vitality for it to matter, but as I start to build on that, I realize that the benefit I would gain from it is so... trivial that it might as well be nonexistent.

    Tiny Being Ring, without a doubt, IMO.

    I'd say it's a tie between the Blue Tearstone Ring and the Tiny Being's Ring. I mean, if you are so low on health that the BTR kicks in, you better not get hit anyway.

    did you know that if one attack could kill you, but with the blue tearstone you survive it?

    I voted sun princess. This is because I have NEVER seen a miracle synergy spot making the ring more worthless than tiny beings (2nd place).

    Does no one know what the ring does? I think its one of the better rings.

    When a miracle is cast near a white circle, you gain extra healing power, or damage. These white circles are when others nearby (in connection and distance in game) cast a miracle, you gain a buff. However, even if you've never seen one of these rings, Ring of the Sun's Princess gives you that bonus (you can think of it as a Ring of the Sun's Firstborn, but for some offensive and mostly defensive, it even buffs Replenish, which makes it give 14/sec I think). If you can find a ring like that and you're using the ring too, you get a double bonus, which I think Replenish becomes like 16 or 18, not bad at all. Its a great ring for sun bros and really good with the miracles (that no one uses) Bountiful Sunlight and Soothing Sunlight.

    I'm amazed that I almost never see people know about it, it was such a good bonus.

    I'm also surprised that Tiny Being's Ring is first so far by so much. I never thought it was good, but I never thought it would be so widely accepted as the worst either.

    You must play on 360 ice fang, because the synergy rings basically dont exist on ps3.

    Not true, I've seen the synergy circles every now and then in the Tomb of Giants (I just never cared enough to put the ring on though, since I'm strength/dex build.)

    Yes indeed, I play on xbox. Its quite interesting that you PS users don't see them very much.

    Point is, it does have an effect, and its actually quite good, at least I think so.

    tyhe sun princess ring has some auxillary effects though, even without a synergy circle nearby, twop gains a few seconds as do a few other duartion based miracles.

    I voted ring of the evil eye, i have never once found a good use for this ring. Sure it appears to be good for farming souls, but really 30hp for every fallen enemy.....AND it doesnt stack with multiple kills.....I dont know, in all of my hrs of gameplay i think i found the tiny beings ring more useful. They both are border line pointless though.
