Boss was quite easy for me, I equipped gavels shield and only attack I needed to dodge was the ominous glare
"It can be used as a trick to fool players whose worlds you invade that you're giving them a gift when actually you are making them easier to defeat."
i've got brain cancer from reading this
Kalameet and all of the DLC bosses are already hard on NG. Taht's why most people attend them at the end of the game. And if you play your cards right at this point you should have your chosen weapon and armor maxed as well as most important stats leveled sou you are almost at peak of your power.
This mean at NG+ when Kalameet (and other bosses) are much more boosted you're at the same point as before. Sure you probably have a bit more HP and a bit better defences and maybe some more spells but battle is still more challenging than last time.
NG++ and far get's olny worse cause bosses hp and damage goes up when you are stuck with your already maxed character. Sure you get much more souls but no matter how many levels you gain and how many items you upgrade you are stuck at cap when it goes to damage or defence. I mean yea you're getting stronger but boosting your damage or defences by 1 point per level or getting few HP points doesn't change anything when Kalameet can turn you into grilled steak with single breath.
after doing literally everything in this game. . .except getting this ring and i finally did it and i find out what it does. . .and i dunno why i'm surprised that they would troll the players this way. .
this and dusk crown ring for true easy mode
I mean it seems like a pretty obvious LoTR reference. You even get a little eye of Sauron over you when you wear it.
The ultimate masculinity test if you can do it you can beat the irs simple as that folks you one shotted dark souls emotionally
The real prize for defeating Kalameet is the slab under the waterfall
Tip about tricking players is just stupid.
Veteran players know what this ring is doing so they don't get fooled.
New players will be so stressed seeing invader that picking items and equipping them will be the last thing they'll think about during invasion.
So no sir! This ain't gonna work...
Nice to Kalameet you.
This ring is not actually useless. It does have a couple uses, albeit very limited. During the fight with kalameet, if you are grabbed by his mark of calamity attack, simply put on and take off this ring to remove the double damage effect. Very useful on ng+ and beyond where it can make the difference between getting one shot or being able to survive a hit. Also, you are technically “immune” to the mark of calamity attack as long as you have this equipped. Surprised no one has mentioned this.
This should be a starter gift
Imagine a pvp build with this
Quite useful when you want to get low life quickly for then equip the red tearstone ring.
obviously, the intended way to use this ring is for the fight against Manus, so you can do a "hit me harder, dark daddy" cosplay, which makes him immediately giving up
I feel like kalameet would give this to you as a christmas present and be like "it's the thought behind the gift"
would this incrase damage taken from chaos blade too?
For all those people who hate themselves but not enough to play ds2
"Doubles damage received by its wearer" I'm no good with english, but wouldn't that sentence literally mean "Doubles the damage received by the person wearing it" aka. "Doubles the damage received by the player(you)"? I might just be completely wrong, but I'd still like an explanation.
eye of sauron
so, I'm running giant dad, and I accidentally broke the ring of FaP. I also beat crossbreed Priscilla before, so I can't trade xanthous crown...any alternatives?
So...I can't decide if the writer is trolling or he's just really that blatantly stupid to believe anyone with more than 10 minutes in a Souls game is dumb enough to immediately equip a ring an enemy phantom drops them...
This could have been a neat starting gift
so damn pissed.. i starved bc i couldn't eat knowing a black silly looking dragon is beating my ass, i refused to give up just to get this item -_-
If I a glass cannon or 1shot build I could see this being used to get the red tearstone buff... maybe? Otherwise it's just for challenge runs.
My friend dared me to play NG+ using this ring and the Symbol of Avarice. Does this double the HP drain the Symbol does or is it not effected?
It would be interesting if the game had an item or miracle/sorcery that could reflect damage.
does this ring stack with prisoner chain, and any other clutch rings??
Too many areas that are a headache to play otherwise I would run this calamity NG challenge.
I was given this ring by Hellkite, said I was hard to kill
I haven't got this ring yet. The dragon is soo hard to kill. Btw what is the hard mode we're talking about?
I just got the ring
Who would fall for it?
May want to remove the Karmic Justice part, as Karmic Justice activates based on hits taken, not percent of max HP taken, if anything this would just make Karmic Justice activate less, as you can take less hits.
I have seen some people trick other players to wear the rings so they can beat them online
Why would they make a ring like this! The game is already hard enough!
