      Wiki is just wrong, rings increase user base discovery bonus by 50, 75 and 100 respectively (in approximate terms that's 0.5%, 0.75% and 1% bonus multiplied by number of drop entries to get a drop). Because of the way loot drop is calculated this might have a bigger impact on specific loot tables (e.g. a loot table with all 10 loot entries available will get the maximum 10% drop bonus for first drop for +2 variant), but overall is nowhere near as impactful as presented.

        Should be noted that the Bonfire Ascetic needs to be used at the Belfry Luna (Upper Ramparts) bonfire, after the boss.

          Wow some of you guys are kinda hilarious. 50%, 75% or 100% increased drop chance doesn't mean every time you kill something there will be an item. There's a basic drop chance for every normal enemy in the game and that drop chance gets increased by 50/75/100...

            The armor is nice and all, but the head is ugly. It looks nice sure, but it sits on your head as still as can be. No swivel, no movement. Just looks one direction, always. It's annoying, and ruins it.

              I don't think it is 100% drop rate anymore... At least I don't get a drop every single time I kill something
