Crown/Potato: Am I a joke to you?
I get that survivability is a lot more important as a perma-death game, but it does make majorities of players neglect others as their primary rings.
Hm… I can take the HP loss for something new, high risk high reward.
For my 7/8 NPE Ninja, she use UBDef is primary defensive ring and Vit as a swapout to regen a bit quicker (approx 10.48 HP/sec). Basic 6 UB rings on her inventory: Vit, Def, Att, Dex, Speed and MP.
For the Knight though, he uses UBMP as a primary ring and Vit/Wis as swapouts for a bit quicker regening (and Dex for accuracy farming).
But I still believe buffing them to 10:1 ratio would make rainbow tiered ring (not nerfing HP/MP) viable again to be used as primary rings (Vit and Wis could be used as swapout) to wear.
