After a bit of searching, I have been unable to find a checklist containing the combinations of all Bitterblack Gear Skill Rings and Bands. Please note I have been hoping to find a checklist containing all of the combinations for the skill-based rings/bands – not the combinations for Virtuoso Rings, Preceptor Rings, and Master Rings as those combinations are far too numerous. It is certainly possible the list is out there somewhere, but I have had no luck finding it.

The following links contain lists that are close, but not quite what I was hoping to find.

https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/boards/684235-dragons-dogma-dark-arisen/66089215

So, using the wiki as a reference, I put together a (hopefully complete) checklist in the following posts of this thread. Please let me know if you find any mistakes and/or omissions. Also, if someone knows of an existing checklist, please feel free to share it.

Good Evening, friend @kb2mocha ... Firstly, kudos 2 U for the work U did above ...

I paid a visit to both links U provided, plus to the Darth Sisters' Inventories yesterday - i don't mention Tele's account, since i haven't yet purified many GL1s & GL2s there - and here is my list of the MISSING Skill Rings, cross-checked from both the girls' accounts:


[ ] Magick Shieldsman's Ring | Icecounter / Frost Riposte to Blizzard Feint | G1
[ ] Assassin's Ring | Powder Charge / Powder Blast to Powder Barrage | G2
[ ] Fighter's Ring | Hindsight Slash / Hindsight Sweep to Hindsight Strike | G2
[ ] Mystic Knight's Ring | Sopor / High Sopor to Grand Sopor | G2
[ ] Warrior's Ring | Arc of Might / Arc of Deliverance to Arc of Obliteration | G2
[ ] Magick Archer's Ring | Backfire / Immolation to Flameshroud | G2
[ ] Ranger's Ring | Foot Binder / Body Binder to Secure Binder | G2
[ ] Strider's Ring | Stepping Stone / Leaping Stone to Soaring Stone | G2
[ ] Mage's Ring | Frigor / High Frigor to Grand Frigor | G2
[ ] Mage's Ring | Brontide / High Brontide to Grand Brontide | G2

All the other Rings and Bands are available - can also provide screenshots, if anyone interested, for confirmation. A few things i need to point out:

1) The Steam page pointed from your link provided above is indeed a work well-done there. Although, in regards to finding Master Rings (or Perceptor and Virtuoso), it says: "Neutral rings are common results for all vocation colours, e.g. Master Ring" and "Neutrals are common outcomes of purification for all vocation types, regardless of colour, hence 'neutral.' Godsbaning to swap vocation colour does not change a neutral result, although it rarely may.", which are not accurate ... When i purify and find these types of Rings (Master Rings, mostly), changing vocation color sometimes (NOT rarely, as the author there says) may yield one or more Master Rings, instead of Skill Bands - i usually purify G3s by tens, after Death-farming & i have found Master Rings on different Voc Colors, instead of Skill Bands.

2) Speaking of Master Rings, duplicate Rings CAN exist in the same account. Deianira has four (4) duplicate Master Rings and Danika one (1). By duplicate, i mean identical Master Rings.

3) Finding all the above missing Skill Rings - if they actually exist, that is - will take a LONG time, since GL1s & GL2s come "naturally" from BBI grinding, besides all the chests that may yield them, but it is a slow process & actually slower than gathering GL3s, from Death-farming (mostly).

If someone else has purified any of the above missing Skill Rings, i hope he-she can confirm their existence.

Regards.

Greetings, all :-)

Bumping the topic again ...

Hopefully someone else - besides @kb2mocha and me - steps in here & confirm the existence of some of the remaining Skill Rings in the Checklist, by "eliminating" entries on the above ^^ post ...

I performed another round of test purifications after collecting more G2s since the last time I provided an update. Unfortunately, I am unable to verify the existence of the remaining seven skill rings at this time. The remaining list of skill rings requiring verification is provided below (please note they are all obtained from G2 purification because they provide upgrades to vocation specific skills).

[ ] Fighter's Ring | Hindsight Slash / Hindsight Sweep to Hindsight Strike | G2
[ ] Warrior's Ring | Arc of Might / Arc of Deliverance to Arc of Obliteration | G2
[ ] Magick Archer's Ring | Backfire / Immolation to Flameshroud | G2
[ ] Ranger's Ring | Foot Binder / Body Binder to Secure Binder | G2
[ ] Strider's Ring | Stepping Stone / Leaping Stone to Soaring Stone | G2
[ ] Mage's Ring | Frigor / High Frigor to Grand Frigor | G2
[ ] Mage's Ring | Brontide / High Brontide to Grand Brontide | G2
