Ring of Blades


"The Ring of Blades is modeled after the mad knight of Alken's weapon of choice. Increases physical attack. The kingdoms of Alken and Venn long ago flourished on these very grounds. They were both founded by the same man, but were reduced to rivalry and spite."

Ring of Blades 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 this applay its damage to EACH shot of a Avelyn (tri-shot crossbow) or only to an ATTACk (divided over the 3 shots)?

              Does this add physical damage the the Moonlight Greatsword, or must there already be some physical damage in order to add the ring?
