While I've been playing and loving the PC version of Dark Souls (just got to Sen's Fortress), I noticed after acquiring the dark wood grain ring that some items have had their stats or buffs changed from their console counterparts. With the dark wood grain ring specifically, the ninja flip now only happens under 25% load, instead of 50% like on consoles (my equip load testing this was 20.6/75.6, 27%). I also noticed that the eagle shield (and item I used a lot on my 360 character) no longer blocks 100% physical damage, it's now 95%.
Can anyone confirm these changes in their games? Only thing I found googling for this was a uncorroborated footnote on the dark wood grain ring on some Dark Souls wiki that it has indeed been "nerfed". Did From say that they were tweaking certain items in the PC version(if so, anyone got a link)? Does this mean that these changes will also come to consoles, possibly in the Artorias DLC? I hope not, since the dark wood grain ring is now completely useless to me, since I like to use medium-tiered armor like brass armor and ornstein's armor. So yeah, anyone else noticed changed item stats/buffs?
