ring_of_blades.png "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."

  • Increases ALL physical damage. This includes fists and bows.
  • As this ring does not provide a percentage increase in damage, it is most effective with weapons that can attack rapidly, in order to proc the increased damage as often as possible.
  • The physical damage bonus provided by this ring is reduced proportionally to the physical damage reduction of the imbuement used for each individual weapon (typically 20%-30%). See the Imbuement section of the Upgrades page for more details.
  • At +2, this ring provides normal, raw and mundane infused weapons with +50 AR, bleed and poison infused weapons with innate bleed or poison with +40 AR, elemental infused weapons will receive +25 AR and weapons upgraded with twinkling titianite or petrified dragon bone +35 AR.

      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?
