A ring for warriors who wish to tap into their more feral side.Description
Fury Ring is an accessory in Final Fantasy VII Remake that allows the wearer to enter battle with the Berserk status, making them both deal and take more damage. The equipper will deal ~30% more damage, making Fury Ring the best source of damage increase outside of magic weaknesses. The best damage the player can deal comes from maxing out attack, using the Fury Ring, and then using Elemental Materia with a Magic Materia that target's an enemy's weakness.
Fury Ring is found under the stairs in Don Corneo's manor's central foyer. The player needs to squeeze through the gap between the furniture to get it. The chest respawns, and so the player can open the same chest multiple times to get multiple copies of the ring.
The player can nab it in Chapter 9, "The Town That Never Sleeps", as Aerith Gainsborough during "The Audition" segment, as well as in Chapter 14, "In Search of Hope" when Cloud Strife, Tifa Lockhart, and Barret Wallace can visit the now abandoned manor. Chapter 14 is an easier place to obtain it from using chapter select if the player requires three.
Fury Ring can't be bought from shops, but sells for 1000 gil.
Berserk increases the damage a unit deals by 30%, but also increases damage received by 30%. Berserk is an effective way to increase damage dealt. It should be used carefully however, as party members wearing it can be KO'd very quickly. It is especially potent in battles the player intends to finish quickly, such as against normal enemies. It could be less useful against bosses where the player is expected to withstand some powerful attacks.
Taking more damage may be desirable in some instances to build limit breaks faster.
The best character to wear the accessory is likely Tifa for being a close-ranged physical attacker, as Cloud can already get Berserk for free from his Punisher Mode (when holding ). If Barret is in the party, he can take some of the damage Tifa sustains with Lifesaver. The player could also further protect her with Barrier, Manaward, and Regen. Barret also makes a good candidate for the fury ring, due to his inherently high HP, and he can also mitigate the negative effects by using the damage reduction gained from Steelskin. The damage bonus also helps him to deal more respectable damage, which can help him greatly due to his lower attack and magic attack attributes.
HP Up Materia is highly recommended to increase survivability when using the fury ring.
Berserk does not have any effect on the damage added by the elemental materia.
