    Leo Ring drop rate

    Post by skarekrow13 on Mon Feb 06, 2012 11:06 am

    What's the drop rate on the Leo Ring? I'm in NG+ and tried killing Ornstein first in NG and just last night in NG+. I downed him several times in each game and never got a drop, even with covetous gold ring on.

    I think you need to kill him second. Then its 100%, for me at least.

    yeah, kill him second and you get the drop, you dont get it if you kill him first.

    Honest to god I thought it was a 100% drop rate but hearing these stories I'm confused. My first playthrough I killed him first just to see if I could and it dropped for me (killed him last for soul), in NG+ I killed him first though (Solaire may have landed the killing blow I can't recall) and nothing dropped.

    That's all of my experience but I don't see it being a super rare drop.

    Yes, he only drops it if you kill him 2nd, from what I understand. and all of my playthoughs I have killed him second and it's always dropped.

    I've killed him first a couple of times, he dropped it every single time.

    Thanks everyone, thought I was going nuts. Seems a lot like Kirk's stuff that seems to drop when it feels like it. From everyone else's experience I think I'm gonna just get the soul I need and kill him second rather than beat my head against the wall (and Ornstein's head against my scythe) trying to get it killing him first. Especially since there doesn't seem to be a trophy for collecting all the rings. I just wanted it because the Souls games appear to make me a candidate for a show on hoarding.

    I've killed him first and second and it hasn't dropped for me, so it can't be a 100% drop rate, unless it glitched out on me...

    He drops it when you kill it first pre-patch 1.04 I think. But as of 1.05, it's a 100% drop when you kill him second.

    I think it's a random drop now, like how Kirks drops works. I killed him second in NG+ in 1.05 and I didn't get one unless it only drops once.

    Again, I've killed him first and second, both post-patch, and haven't gotten it, so it can not be a 100% drop.

    what exactly does the leo ring even do? i've tried parries and riposte's with it to no avail and i have no idea what it's description means by counter attack if not a parry.

    I promise its 100% drop if you kill him 2nd... I've done it like that on all 11 of my playthoughs and I've got it every time. I could just be the most lucky guy in all of Lorderan, but I doubt it.

    Counter attack occurs when you hit someone at the same time they hit you or just before they hit you (while they are in attack animation).

    @chizfreak, thanks wasn't sure, is the bonus really worth it? has any one made a build focused on this ring?
