Notes

Flynn's Ring is not affected by your weight %, but rather by the raw weight you have. The damage is roughly 15%, and will drop quickly. The exact breakpoints is per weapon, and is found by [ (Maximum damage increase - no damage increase) + 1 ]. For example: Bare fist get a 24 attack rating increase under 2.4 weight and had 25 breakpoints, and roughly every point of weight you lose 0.6% damage. For a Black Knight Halberd you get 49 damage, with 50 breakpoints, and you lose 0.2% damage every 0.4 weight from 9.9 to 30 weight. 

This means that the damage increase will fall very quickly for any weapon, and gives no attack rating at around 30 weight. For the full 15% (or 14.12%) increase, you need to be under 2.4 weight (the ring itself weights 0.9). It has a use for low level builds or very low-weight builds, although don't expect the full 15% AR increase. Most of the semi heavy - heavy weapons put it to the lower damage increase range! 

For example: At roughly 10 weight, the damage is down to 7-8%, and at 20 it's down to 3-4%, and it caps at roughly 30 with no gain.

 This ring only increases 'physical' attack power. Thus, it does not increase the dark portion of Dark Hand or fire damage of Demon's Scar.

      This is probably one of the most underrated things in this game. For physical builds running lightweight weapons, if you don't mind wearing ragged mask, master's attire/gloves, and the loincloth, you will pickup considerable amount of damage. While your damage AR will list at around a 30-40 damage increase, which isn't too terribly much, it might be enough damage to have you reach a defense threshold, dramatically spiking your damage against heavier equipped opponents. You can even stack on the blessed weapon miracle to add another 7.5% on top of that (Free regen too). Ever since I started to really start using this ring, it makes playing without feel sluggish, especially since you will be using the very fast roll under 30% equip. In regards to your defense, you might die in roughly one hit earlier than you would have with a standard setup, but I think it can be worth it if it fits your type of playstyle. In my honest opinion, I wish this ring never existed, simply because the allure is too great for me now.

      In summary, it isn't free damage like in DS2, but it is still incredibly good if you are properly setup.

        I just did a damage test with a rapier and got back a 21% gain at an equip load of 4.8. 68dmg to 86 dmg w/ring

          I made a character that specializes in using caestus ONLY, and my rings. The results are impressive, and very entertaining to say the least. So a sharp caestus with 70 dex has 361 AR. with the ring, and no other rings, it jumps to 416. Quip it with pontiff's right ring and it jumps to 521. Gets even dumber with pine resins. Run protec +3 and life ring +3 and dump all other points into health and stam. It's crazy fun, and with perseverance you can be very hard to stop. But to clarify, the ring itself sucks. You pretty much have to build around the ring itself. It's powerful, but too niche to be "good". It just fits the build.

            Here is an idea to get maximum benefit from this ring:

            Equip absolutely nothing else than the pyro flame and get boulder heave in your attunement slot.

            Congratulations, now you ve become glass ledo.

              Youve heard of dex scaling, str scaling, int scaling, faith scaling and even luck scaling! But get ready for........ VITALITY SCALING!!!!

                I can imagine the possibilities of a Dragon form build, a dagger in main hand and caestus in the other, with only Flynn and Hornet rings. Light enough to get the damage boost, and you can roar just before parrying someone to riposte them for crazy damage.

                • This ring is more oriented for assassin characters and archers, which cause critical damage, for normal attacks it is garbage, but for critical10% it is practically the small but devastating blow that makes the difference between an enemy rising or the enemy staying completely "dead"

                    USEFUL RING: I'm not sure why this is regarded as a useless ring by many. For naked builds, this is free damage. My +10 Sharp Sellsword Twinblades are at 381 by themselves (56 dex atm). This ring boosts to 420AR. It takes up a slot, but 10.2% damage increase sounds great to me. Again...when running a naked build.

                      Such a niche ring, but still powerful in the right set-up. You pretty much have to be naked to get proper use out of it, so it pairs extremely well with Dragon Form since this ring should give you a 10-15% damage boost in Dragon Form and stacks with your Roar for an additional 10%. As others have said, it also works on physical-damage spells and is one of the few rings that can buff bow damage. In my experience, it stops being useful once you exceed 15 Weight, so it's best with either a ranged build or a one-shot build... or a ranged one-shot build.

                      • Naked with +5 Demon Scar and this ring, tested Boulder Heave against beginner hollows, 65 int/fth: Ring on - 538 damage; Ring off - 454 damage. White Corona ring off = 74 damage; ring on = 95 damage - Wraith of the Gods ring off = 494 damage; ring on = 585 damage. Conclusion; this ring will boost physical type magic. For the hell of it, tested Great Farron Dart, both ring on and off, damage was 72. Old Moonlight test, on and off, uncharged beam damage was 300.

                          How effective is this for Divine Pillars, Emit Force and Wrath of the Gods? Obviously at 60 fth with the Talisman/Canvas Talisman.

                            Used to be my #1 ring in DS2 DLC and NG+. Worthless for me in DS3. I can do low weight build but it is counterproductive considering higher and more useful bonuses from other rings, heavier weapons and shields.
