    Vocane Ring - Description of "Reduces distance knocked back"

    Hi.

    The new ring added, "Vocane Ring", does not display important information about the the effect "Reduces distance knocked back".

    This goes against the decision Squareenix made, back to end 2013/start 2014, to quantify all pieces of gear with duration or amount affected. So, it does not make sense releasing an item with a so imprecise effect like Vocane Ring.

    And being the nature of those rings, having an high cost to change, its not fair omitting such important information. 300,000 bayld is too expensive just to test an item to make conclusions if its worth to choose or not, also, more important, if it stacks with Repulse Mantle or not.

    unless it completely trivializes knockback or eliminates it completely, does it really matter how much it is?

    (But I would still like to know- e.g. "reduces distance knocked back by 50%" or something like that)

    Someone care to tell me what's wrong with a couple Yukes?

    The “Reduces distance knocked back” effect granted by the Vocane ring is the same effect as that of the Repulse mantle.

    Since there are a limited amount of equipment pieces with this effect, there are no plans to show the amount or percentage at the moment.

    Do the effects stack?

    SE should probably fix the "Damage Taken II -3%" too.

    What does amount of equipment with this effect have to do with hiding such a trivial information? Does that really make any sense to anybody? And also, if some numbers such as the amount of fast cast, which is a pretty common effect, isn't worth hiding anymore according to that mindset, why are they still adding equipment with ambigious fast cast effects? I don't even want to go into the inconsistencies in their ways of wording...

    No offense intended, but that's kind of a silly reason not to show the amount of the effect. How does the fact that the attribute is rare have anything to do with knowing how strong the effect is?

    -edit- above poster read my mind (I didn't read that far before reacting to the dev post ;p )

    Yes, they do stack.

    This is a bug that will be fixed. The proper text should state "Damage Taken -7%". Please note that this is only a text bug and the actual stats are properly reflected when playing.

    So basically the vocane ring is... maybe sort of a bit stronger than an augmented dark ring from Abyssea? Well, that probably just made a bunch of people's choices easier.
