      So I accidentally sold my +1 Sage Ring and I need it for the Master of Rings achievement and personally for my build. Anyone willing to trade? I'll upgrade any weapon of your choice to max for that ring. My gamertag on Xbox is Tetsacrey to whoever is interested.

        Added in references to 50 Dex cast speed cap and combinations required to reach it. Mentioned Saint-tree & Witchtree as alternatives. Reformatted for ease of reading.

            Cast times shouldn't be based on rings or stats, they should be a factor yout think about when using a certain staff.

              one of the many cases where an implemented working trading mechanic would be a bliss. I have multiple chars, all melee builds owning this ring among many other useless rings. Imagine if I could trade it against something usefull for them like covenant items, armour, weapons or boss souls. Imagine a table or a box where two people make their offer, agree to it and only then the item transfer would be happening. Simple and save. Not even a online market with ups and downs, just a place where two people can trade s***!

                I was getting scared thinking that my STR/INT build will need NG++ for it to work good... but NG version means you only need 10 DEX to max it out right? so are all the other versions of the ring practically useless if you have 10 DEX???

                  So if you have 20 Dex does the plus 2 version give you faster casting speed than the original or plus 1 version or are they all maxed out at the same timing?

                    The ring infact does affect healing miracles very significantly (You can hear it in how fast the chime dings) a combat healer very much should consider this ringWeapon buffs gain 0 benefit from this ring, you won't be buffing any faster with thisIt also affects lightning spears, though the effect is less noticeable, it was like a 4 frame difference with cap dex vs 14

                      In terms of ring choices, it may make more sense for a pure caster to get their dex to 40 in order to free another ring slot after NG+.

                        The +2 ring allows to never level up DEX and still have fastest spell cast speed. Praise the pure casters!

                          PSA: You don't have to jump to get the +2 version, you can run off the end of the staircase and you should land on the bottom of the one with the ring

                            It would be interesting to see what the gain per level in dexterity would be for cast speed, but if I'm reading this right the ring + 20 dex = maximum cast speed reduction? So if you get the +2 ring, you only need 10 dex to get minimum casting time? 10 points is pretty valuable, but there's no mention of a soft cap for virtual dexterity, just that 50 is the "cap." I assume that means hard cap? Although everything else has both a soft cap and a hard cap, so yeah it would be nice to be able to run the numbers somehow. It might be that the benefit you get from a +2 ring over a +1 ring is negligible, giving you more stats to play with.
