Lloyd's Sword Ring is a Ring in Dark Souls 3.

Lloyd's Sword Ring


Ring given to knights of the Way of White. Depicts Allfather Lloyd's Sword of Law.

Boosts attack power when HP is full.

Much time has passed since the worship of Lloyd was common in the Way of White. The clerics of Carim had always strongly asserted that Lloyd was a derivative fraud, and that the Allfather title was self-proclaimed.

 

Lloyd's Sword Ring Effect

  • Boosts Attack Rating by 10% when HP is full (over 99%)
  • Weight: 0.9

 

 

Where to Find Lloyd's Sword Ring

  • Found at the Cathedral of the Deep near the first giant you encounter that swings at you. It's on the ground on corpse as you run by.
  • Watch the Fextra Video at 2h 11mins 41 secs in.

 

 

Notes

  • Seems to boost all damage. Need more testing. Confirmed for: Wrath of the Gods, Sunlight Spear, Crystal Soul Spear. ~12-13 % damage increase, that implies a 10% base damage increase)]
  • The boost to AR is misleading since damage output is effectively 10-15% greater. Damage boost appears to be greater against weaker enemies. When wearing the ring, a greater percentage of total AR is dealt as damage (tested with Yhorm's Great Machete, Dragonslayer Greataxe, and Irithyll Rapier), so the additional AR may not be treated the same, or perhaps the ring also affects enemies' absorbance (similar to the Stone Ring in Dark Souls 2, which reduced enemy poise).

      Theres is a perfect niche use for this ring. It fits well in the stealth build (how i play) invisibility spell with lingering dragon crest for duration aldrich sapphire for FP regen and slumbering dragon crest for no footsteps. That combined with a luck/dex build and a nice stabby dagger is an excellent way to make your way through most of the game. Few enemies can still perceive you at more than 2 meters with the gear on, so your always at full hp

        Both of the Lloyd rings give a creepy sound when being equipped.<br/>Lore, Secret, just scaring the ***** out of me? I don't know ...

          The only reason for using this ring is if you plan on going full archer, or for some heavy sniping. Mages already have spell boost rings so I don't see a reason to use this one.

          • Useless?25 Apr 2016 09:09  

            I fail to see any reason to use this ring, to be honest. +10% damage while full health? That is a pretty significant boost, yes, but only if you're full health, and regardless if you're playing PvP or PvE, you're almost never going to be at full health through most of the fights. You'll most often only get a +10% boost the first 1-3 hits, before you're hit yourself.<br/><br/>If you want a +damage boost ring, I still think;<br/>* Chloranty Ring (+7 stamina, for more dodging AND attacking, skill uses etc),<br/>* Ring of Favor (+10% stamina for more of the same as Chloranty),<br/>* any of the three attunement rings for more spells (Saint's ring, Deep Ring or Darkmoon Ring, +1, +1, +2 attunements respectively),<br/>* Young Dragon Ring or Bellowing Dragoncrest Rings (boost sorcery damage by +12% and +20% respectively),<br/>* Great Swamp Ring and Witch's Ring (+12% and +20% respectively on Pyromancy damage),<br/>* Morne's Ring and Rung of the Sun's First born (+12% and +20% respectively on miracle-damage),<br/>* any of the Three Pillars (Knight's, Scholar, Priestess rings, which gives you +5 of Strenght, Intelligence and Faith respectively, for more damage using weapons, sorceries and damage-miracles), or the Hunter's ring (+5 Dex) for more weapon/magic damage<br/>* Leo Ring (which boosts counterattack damage with +15%)<br/>* Hornet Ring (+30% critical damage)<br/>* Farron Ring (+30% consumption of FP while using skills, effectively letting you use more Skills)<br/>* any of the four Clutch Rings (+15% elemental damage, at the cost of +10 physical incoming damage)<br/>* Red Tearstone Ring (even if it's only active when less than 20%hp, that's still alot more of the time than you'll be at *full* health, and it gives *twice* the damageboost!)<br/>* Pontiff's Right Eye (+15% damage, compared to the Lloyd's +10%, even if you need to attack 3-5 times quick)<br/>* Flynn's Ring (which boosts your damage with up to +15% when having low equip load (5% of max), down to no damage boost at 45.6% E.L., and 10% damage boost at 15% equip load. This ring is just as effective as Lloyd's ring while using less than 15% E.L., but while Lloyd's only work until you're hit ONCE, I see alot of people actually running around with no armor, effectively being under the desired E.L.)<br/><br/>And that's not even counting Knight Slayer's Ring, or Horsehoof Ring, which is rings that eats away on the enemies stamina bar while they're blocking, effectively letting you break their guard for clean hits.<br/><br/>Say, for discussions sake, that you are not a caster (therefore neglecting 9 entire rings, the +12% and +20% of the caster damage rings (sorcery, pyromancy, miracle) and the attunement rings) and only uses melee, that means there's still;<br/>* Chloranty/Ring of Favor (that gives you more stamina/stamina regen for more attacks),<br/>* The Knight's Ring and The Hunter's Ring (+5 Strenght and +5 Dexterity respectively for more weapon damage),<br/>* the Leo Ring and Hornet rings (for greater damage while backstabbing and counterattacking - which, while still situational, is still going to occur more often than you being at full hp),<br/>* Farron Ring (for getting more high damaging weapon skills out of your FP)<br/>* the elemental Clutch Rings (which increases weapons infuse-damage with +15%),<br/>* the RTSR (while still being situational with the 20%-of-max-hp thing is still going to occur more often than full hp AND being double boost),<br/>* and the Flynn and Pontiff's rings - still not counting the stamina-penalty-when-blocking-rings (Hoorsehoof and Knight slayer).<br/><br/>That means there's 13 rings which has the potential to be of greater use for you to deal damage, than this Lloyd's ring, seeing as *one hit, or poison/toxic ticks, or even falling damage* is all it takes for you to lose out of a 10% damage boost.<br/><br/>While most of them are somewhat situational (backstabbing only, counterattacking only, being at 20%hp, having lower E.L., attacking more than 3-5 times in a rapid succession, using Weapon Skills to boost attack, using infused/buffed weapons, or killing off the enemies stamina when they block to stagger them), they all have their uses that is vastly superior than a "+10% damage increase, unless you're hit even once".<br/><br/>And if you're a caster, I see no reason to use it anyway, since if you want to be a glass-cannon caster, you'll still use;<br/>* a +12%boost ring for your class (Young Dragon Ring - Sorcery, Great Swamp Ring - Pyromancy, Morne's Ring - Miracles)<br/>* a +20%boost ring for your class (Bellowing Dragoncrest Ring - Sorcery, Witch's Ring - Pyromancy, Ring of the Sun's First Born - Miracles)<br/>(netting you a +32% boost, or is it +34.4% boost? Not sure if they stack additively or multiplicatively)<br/>* a Clutch ring of your chosen elemental (+15% boost)<br/>and either an attunement ring (Darkmoon Rings +2 attunement slots), Sage Ring (for faster spellcasting), Ashen Estus Ring (for gaining more FP/use of flask = more spellcasts), Scholar/Priestess Ring (+5 of Intelligence or Faith respectively), Dusk Crown Ring (-25% FP useage / spell = more spells, therefore more damage)<br/>This means, if you use the three first rings I mentioned, you'll have a +47% boost of your spell damage (Great Swamp Ring, Witch's Ring, Fire Clutch Ring = +47% pyromancy bonus), and if you use Darkmoon Rings you'll have plenty of more spells to use, or (which I recommend) Ashen Estus Ring for more FP/flask use.<br/><br/>Even if you go Glass-cannon mode and want to maximize your damage output, *any other ring*, in *any combination* is still going to be better than this Lloyd's Sword Ring.

              I'm not sure if this is bug or not, but HP doesn't need to be 100% full.<br/>I have 977 maximum HP and still gives me full bonus at 969, but not at 967. Full HP probably means >99%.
