Flynn's Ring is a Ring in Dark Souls 3

Flynn's Ring

Ring of Flynn, the eulogized thief. Lowering equip load increases attack power.

Flynn fought with the wind on his side, and was a hero among the weak and poor, yet even his admirers knew that it was little more than an idyllic fable."


Flynn's Ring Effect

  • Lowering equip load increases attack power up to 15%
  • Weight: 0.9



Where to Find Flynn Ring





Flynn's Ring is not affected by your weight %, but rather by the raw weight you have. The damage is roughly 15%, and will drop quickly. The exact breakpoints is per weapon, and is found by [ (Maximum damage increase - no damage increase) + 1 ]. For example: Bare fist get a 24 attack rating increase under 2.4 weight and had 25 breakpoints, and roughly every point of weight you lose 0.6% damage. For a Black Knight Halberd you get 49 damage, with 50 breakpoints, and you lose 0.2% damage every 0.4 weight from 9.9 to 30 weight. 

This means that the damage increase will fall very quickly for any weapon, and gives no attack rating at around 30 weight. For the full 15% (or 14.12%) increase, you need to be under 2.4 weight (the ring itself weights 0.9). It has a use for low level builds or very low-weight builds, although don't expect the full 15% AR increase. Most of the semi heavy - heavy weapons put it to the lower damage increase range! 

For example: At roughly 10 weight, the damage is down to 7-8%, and at 20 it's down to 3-4%, and it caps at roughly 30 with no gain.

      the current damage boost scaling is 0 at 30 weight, 4-5 at 20 weight, 8~ at 10 weight, and the full 15 at 0-1 weight. this makes it borderline useless for any build that doesnt completely forgo armor and only uses light weapons
      instead I'd change the scaling to something like 0% damage buff above 50 weight, 4% damage buff between 30-50 weight, and then scaling down would go from 4-8% between 30-20 weight, 8-12 between 20-10 weight, and 12-16% between 10-0 weight
      this way the ring is still somewhat viable for light armor builds (granting almost 10% increased damage) but has diminished returns for higher weight builds (though not being useless)
      I'd also cut the weight of the ring down from 0.9 to 0.5 so that it contributes less to its own scaling

        With +2 raw broadsword, equip load 20% (with this ring) on SL1 I get a boost from 180 to 197. I think it's worth it. It seems to work properly on low lvl runs and raw weapons.

          i have equiped: Robe of Prayer, Firekeeper Gloves, Deserter Trousers, Ragged Mask;
          Chaosblade, Caestus;
          Hunters Ring, Untrue Dark Ring, Chlorantie Ring, Flynn´s Ring
          That meens an equipmentload of 18.1

          The Flynn´s Ring boosts the dmg of my Chaosblade by 21 points. like its Chaosblade +11^^ seems worth it IMO

            Needs to be changed to be like the ring of blades from DS2, just only applying at 30% load or less. The problem with increasing weapon damage by a percentage is it only takes the weapon base damage into consideration instead for your base damage + scaling damage. If it was based off total (unbuffeted) weapon AR this wouldn't be so useless. It also needs to be load percent as opposed to load value.

              Odd bug, equipped the ring with gear and got bonus, removed all my gear except ring and the bonus disappeared, re-equipped gear and still zero bonus... found it odd that i had 40% weight and received a ar boost, however reducing my inventory to a ring only gave 0 ar boost and stayed that way even after pushing the equip load back up. seems this ring has a mind of its own and doesn't like to reset or something.

                This ring is not bad if you're going for a low weight build that doesn't shield and focuses on dodging. I used it early on, thinking I was gonna ditch, ended up not ditching it. Although, it does need a bit of a buff, at least indirectly. It should definitely subtract it's own weight, and be a little more lenient. The game itself also just needs to incentivise having lower equip load. There aren't really many reasons to lower your equip load, except for more iframes, and dragons. Also, bundling this ring onto elemental weapons with a clutch weapon can be nice. Especially if the weapon is also buffable(like dragonslayer's axe, and drakeblood sword).

                • Dragon Form Buff29 May 2016 02:37  

                  Only current use is in dragon form since you are not wearing armor which is where most of your weight comes from. In armor other rings are better outright, even the STR or DEX +5 rings are better for their respective builds since +5 to a stat will give about as much into scaling as this ring with higher loads.

                  • Really need to buff this ring22 May 2016 15:30  

                    It's so abysmal atm.<br/>I can confirm with the notes it's based of raw weight.<br/>I tried jacking my VIT up by 10, no change in damage.<br/>Equip Havel's Ring? No change in damage, it really is RAW weight which is an oversight imo.

                    • is it useless?12 May 2016 13:38  

                      On my Thief and Ninja builds who have about 21.9 Equip Load is increases Dmg by about 90. so is it usefull or sould i get some other dmg inceaseing ring?

                      • Does it work with magic?10 May 2016 17:41  

                        Does it's effect apply to magic? Also asking about the dragon form damage boost too. I'm just wondering you could make a full on glass cannon.

                          This is actually quite cool. A relatively useless item but this is an obvious reference to flynn from tales of vesperia who endgame, if you beat him in a duel, teaches the main character a wind elemental attack. And who, on top of that you spend about half the game trying to catch up to but hes always 1 step farther ahead.<br/>

                            It's useless in just about most builds but the only one I've gotten success with is when I was in dragon form. <br/><br/>This coupled with hornet's ring and my Rapier+5 for mid level shenanigans, I was able to just about to chunk more than 70% hp of most players. <br/><br/>Also still maintained very low weight rolls so that was a nice benefit. <br/><br/>Mind you you're insanely squishy for attempting something like this.
