Old Leo Ring


"The beloved ring of a dragon-slaying knight. Strengthens thrust weapon counter attacks. After many years of use, the ring's face has worn down, but close inspection reveals an engraved lion."

Old Leo Ring is a Ring in Dark Souls 2 (DKS2). Players can equip up to 4 Rings, but equipping two of the same item is not possible. Some rings have upgraded versions, having a maximum of +3. Some can only be found in NG+. Rings can be repaired at a blacksmith, but not upgraded. Upgraded versions must be acquired throughout the game from corpses, chests, bosses, etc.

      does it have to be a thrusting move? what if im using the greatsword which can thrust. would it still work

        Though it DOES work on bows, I question the combat strategies of someone that uses bows in melee range often enough to warrant this ring's use.
        Yes I know, spellcasters and other ranged enemies. But they're few and far between compared to melee enemies.

          One of my favorite rings as a dirty hexer using dark spider's silk. This +dark weapon and whisper of despair = some quick pvp encounters.

              > 150 * 1.125 = 168.75. -> Counter Damage increases by 18.75%. > 100 * 1.125 = 112.5. -> Weapon now deals 12.5% Counter Damage. That's ridiculously wrong. It increases counter damage by 12.5% regardless of what the original value is. That's simple math.

                The math equation to figure out the damage boost is wierd, it should be, for example 100*.125=12.5. Also, does counter damage stack with damage boosts from rings?
