Maybe. The damage display is currently broken, so the figures may be misleading. But your basic point is a good one - the new combat system means that slays are much more powerful, because they multiply all damage (not just the base dice). This is why they've been toned down to start from +25% instead of +100% - this needs to be reflected on rings too. (I'm pretty sure I did tone the ring brands down a bit, but obviously not enough.)
