Assuming the stats aren't changed, ring distribution goes like this: Classes with base crit (not NLs): Critical Ring NLs: Cruel Ring Classes that don't get base crit: Cruel Ring or Lilin's Ring 3 Mages: Magical Ring Classes that can get SE or Thorns consistently: Critical Ring
Explanations come in the way they're listed. For the record, the Critical Ring and the Cruel Ring both add the same % to your DPS.
For base crit classes: Classes with base critical don't need the critical damage as much as they want the critical chance. For NLs: The critical damage on the Cruel Ring and the extra weapon attack means it is better for the NLs as the critical damage is already accounted for by either ring, but the extra 1 weapon attack is better utilized by NLs. For no base crit classes: The critical ring and cruel ring both add the same thing, but the cruel ring adds more weapon attack. You can even use Lilin's Ring 3 as it gives you 3 primary stat points and 3 secondary stat points. See which one adds more attack, but take into consideration Cruel's %DPS boost. Mages: 8% stun? +1% DPS boost? You can use Lilin's Ring 3 if you want, but +1% DPS > 1 more magic attack. SE/Thorns: If you can get these consistently, treat your class as if it had base crit.
I read this from somewhere, I can't find the link so I just posted what I remember. To the people who want to bawww, there's google, look for the thread, do your own calcs and then take it up to the guy who posted the OP. --- 2 line break(s), 160 characters allowed I put the "sexy" in dyslexia.

From: iKevN | #009 I'm getting about five rings. >_> Because I can Dayy, because I can.
Looks like I am going to have to Tempest leech a lot of Bowmen then. I need one for my Hermit, one for my Aran, one for my Bishop-to-be. I want to make a Slinger at some point, so I guess now is a good time to make one and get it to 50. Thats 4 for me. At a minimum.
I could get one for my Evan, but lol. Hmm, maybe I should get a 5th for a Hero/Paladin that I'll probably one day make. --- Phandross Lv10x Hermit ~ Phanatoss Lv12x Aran http://cheezcomixed.files.wordpress.com/2010/03/picardo.jpg
