Horsehoof Ring is a Ring in Dark Souls 3.

Horsehoof Ring

An old ring with a seal depicting a horse's hoof. Boosts kick effect.

Unbreakable Patches adored this ring and the feeling that it gave him when he kicked his marks into the depths of treacherous traps, but suffered no shortage of ridicule from his associates for relying so heavily on the tired old trick.

But who is the sorrier? The horse who knows only to kick, or the fool who approaches the old beast without thought?


Horsehoof Ring Effect

  • Enemies lose 30% more Stamina when guarding against your kicks
  • Weight: 0.6



Where to Find Horsehoof Ring




  • For this to appear in Patches' shop inventory, Greirat must be in Firelink Shrine at the same time as Patches' at any point in the game.  Select Talk in Patches' menu, and if he mentions Greirat, then the ring will be added to his inventory.



  • Description likely a reference to the many incarnations of Patches' actions in Demon's Souls, Dark Souls, as well as Bloodborne, where he had a tendency to kick players off of ledges into traps.

      Did this at least 30 times but for some reasons he does not sell the ring to one of my characters... yes I forgave him and yes cathedral gates are all open. Nothing critical, I don't plan to use it but it's weird how a result is different in DS3 when it shouldn't be.

      • Where is patches?17 Aug 2016 15:37  

        I followed the questline, and when I told him greirat, was in irithyll, he wouldn't sell me anything, only talking about greirat.<br/> When I came back later, patches was gone and I didn't get the chance to buy the Catarina armor. Patches has not returned for a long time.

        • Um...03 Jul 2016 09:22  

          I killed Patches for his ring, but he fell of the side up top, his item is floating in mid air... Does leaving the area reset the item drop location?

          • Skeletons11 May 2016 14:52  

            If you kick a skeleton with the Horsehoof ring, it'll fall apart for a bit and then re-assemble. Much like hitting it with a blunt weapon.

            • Has the same effect as Knight Slayer Ring?11 May 2016 03:16  

              Enemies lose 10% more Stamina when guarding against your attacks as well. (etc Knight-Slayer Ring) Confirmed Testing 4/26/2016

              • Does this stack with the Knight Slayer Ring?02 May 2016 09:02  

                "Enemies lose 10% more Stamina when guarding against your attacks as well. (etc Knight-Slayer Ring) Confirmed "<br/><br/>So if the above is confirmed, does the Horsehoof ring increase stamina consumption upon blocking an attack in addition to the Knight-Slayer Ring?<br/><br/>Furthermore, does the Knight-Slayer Ring increase the stamina consumption of a blocked kick?<br/><br/>They really should have just made the kick a clean guard break to stop people from turtle-ing so ***** much. They aren't even hard to kill most of the time, just really annoying. I've double kicked some people with their greatshields with the hoof ring and they soaked both kicks. That is ridiculous.

                • No ring in inventory - Only spoken to Patches at firelink (abandoned tower)30 Apr 2016 15:26  

                  Even though I have opened the front door of the Cathedral Patches does not have the ring for sale in his inventory.<br/>I missed him at the cathedral/ & of course killed the giants and only met Patches back at firelink. I have spoken to Ziegward in the well but not rescued him or bought his armour from Patches nor have I sent Greirat on his second "shopping" trip (yet).<br/>So simply opening the door of the cathedral (as stated above) is not enough for the ring to be available. I assume you have to open the door and speak to him at the cathedral (unsure about killing the giants first or after...).

                    The trigger for the horsehoof ring to appear in his inventory is choosing to forgive him after the event in firelink, once you return and he is now squatting, it will be in his inventory.

                    • Condition of ring appearing in Patches' inventory29 Apr 2016 07:19  

                      I couldn't find the ring until I found Greirat. Once I did, I talked to Patches and he noticed I had met him. I was then able to buy the ring, whereas I was unable to prior to talking to him.

                      • Needs Update26 Apr 2016 20:23  

                        It appears that if you open the Green Door (graveyard) shortcut in Cathedral having come up the elevator, talk to Siegward, and return to the elevator by a method other than the Green Door shortcut, Patches will not activate. This forces you to follow up with the Tower scene to unlock him as a salesman. In this event, I do not have the ability to buy this ring! I have yet to clear Smouldering Lake, and have not taken the bridge to Irithyll. Everything else has been completed.

                        • information incorrect25 Apr 2016 05:05  

                          Greirat does not have to die for this ring to be sold. In my current gamestat greirat has returned from Irithyll, saved by Siegward. Patches has the ring for sale regardless of this outcome.

                          • how to get the ring24 Apr 2016 08:42  

                            To make him sell the ring you need to have patches squatting down in firelink shrine. for me this was after he locked me in the tower, then went back to him and exhausted all dialog, then i sat at the bonfire and warped to firelink again to reload the area. this made him squat down and sell that ring to me.

                            • Tower Key?24 Apr 2016 03:03  

                              Watched a video where patches wasn't selling the ring, however if still dropped from him. But only after they went to the tower retrieved the fire keeper soul and extinguished his dialog at the door. Not sure if prevalent information, but maybe its something.

                              • RING WILL NOT DROP IF....21 Apr 2016 18:24  

                                The ring will not drop if he is not selling it, keep this noted. I killed him because he wasn't selling it and got nothing but ashes in return.<br/>Ashes didn't grant the items availability to sell either

                                • Incredible17 Apr 2016 20:45  

                                  good lord this thing is amazing, with this you can kick great shields aside. Tested on Black Knights, Lothric Knights and that Mace Great Shield. With the kick the shield and riposte mechanic this thing is gonna be lethal in PvP

                                  • sell ?17 Apr 2016 14:29  

                                    it say she sells the ring, but the ring doesn't appear in his stock for me. there aren't any instructions on what you have to do for him to sell it sooo... does he even sell it`?
