- Unlike in Dark Souls 1, elemental damage also receives a counter bonus in Dark Souls 2, making this ring effective even if you are using weapons that are infused with an elemental attack type.
- Contrary to the description this ring affects all thrust-type attacks, not only thrusting weapons, thus it also affects spears, halberds's attacks from behind shields, thrusting attacks of any swords if they are present in the moveset, the Pickaxe and even bows and greatbows since arrows deal thrust damage as well.
- This ring does NOT affect ripostes and backstabs as they use their own damage calculations and are not considered counter attacks.
