Obscuring Ring is a Ring in Dark Souls 3.

Obscuring Ring


Ring bestowed upon the Fingers of Rosaria, invaders who seek tongues for their goddess.

 

Hides the presence of the wearer when far away.

 

It is said that Rosaria, the mother of rebirth, was robbed of her tongue by her firstborn, and has been waiting for their return ever since.

 

Obscuring Ring Effect

  • Makes the wearer invisible to enemy players at long distance.
  • Weight: 0.9

  

Where to Find Obscuring Ring

  • Rank 1 reward: Rosaria's Fingers (You MUST offer 10 Pale Tongues to reach rank 1)  

Notes

  • Makes the wearer completely invisible at range, lifebar included, to all enemy players and phantoms. The effect starts at about 10 meters away, which is slightly shorter than the maximum lock-on distance. Works as well when you are the host of a world being invaded.
  • Tears of Denial and other visual effects, like Poison or a knife stuck in your character, will give away the wearer's position.
  • Unlike Ring of Fog from Dark Souls and Thief's Ring from Demon's Souls, which reduced the range of detection for NPC enemies, the Obscuring Ring only works on human players.

      Yeah, primarily useful for those who don't buff, but otherwise the cheapest yet most amazing ring I've ever seen, because it allows hit and run tactics and if the host continually heals you can hide and regen with blessed items. Unfortunately it can kind of be abused, it's good not many people use it because if a host did I have no idea how you'd find them and with one person it isn't very nice as I've already had people get so distracted they get killed by mobs, and that's really unfair but...well, in some cases it's absolutely warranted. Ok, I'm sorry, but I'm too proud of this story.

      Once upon a time there was a gank squad of 3 people who I wound up invading, alone. They were sitting up where Ledo invades near the ringed city street bonfire, all cocky and throwing down their "Hey" stones and standing by the edge emoting...I slowly snuck up a bit behind the far one, pulled out a milwood greatbow, and shot them off the ledge. One down. Now the other two are still a bit cocky and trying to draw me into Ledo's room so they could gang up on me. I waited around for a bit, occasionally taking pot shots when they'd pop out to try to taunt me, and eventually one separated and came down the path a bit and I hacked him up with my Exile's greatsword. 2 down. The last guy isn't quite so cocky anymore and I take off my obscuring ring, replace it with a silvercat. I wasn't sure if I'd use it, but the host had no problem chugging estus (I didn't use a single one throughout), and I was unembered, so after beating on him and having him keep healing finally we eventually fell over the ledge. Because I had the ring I took nothing, he took most his health. He heals full, we fall to the ground. We both swing, both hit, he dies. I feel like I'm predator. Not so cocky now, eh?

        Yes, Tears of Denial are visible even when using the Obscuring Ring AND at the appropriate distance to be hidden.

          Any visible particle effect on your character is visible from a distance, as far as I know. Including Tears of Denial. But I imagine a list may need to be made after testing.

            Could anyone care to confirm if the obscuring ring makes you invisible for a second after coming within distance of the enemy? It seems to be that way for me i sneak up on so many people in such. A wide open space

              https://www.reddit.com/r/darksouls3/comments/4kd81s/psa_obscuring_ring_heres_what_you_can_and_cant_see/
              If you don't want to open the link...
              What you CAN'T see when someone is wearing the Obscuring Ring

              All weapon buffs, this includes buffs from Pine Resins such as Gold Pine Resin, Carthus Rouge etc. You also can't see spell weapon buffs such as Lightning Blade (I never tested Darkmoon Blade, Crystal Magic Weapon but I assume they are the same too.)

              Profaned Greatsword (Flame buff from the Weapon Art is hidden, but not the animation)

              Immolation Tinder (You can't see this weapons fire effect it has, and you can not see the light it produces on the walls/ground)

              I want to clarify on this part because someone misunderstood this information, although weapon buffs can't be seen from a far distance (when the Obscuring Ring's effect is working making you invisible) the weapon buff will be seen when the Obscuring Ring's effect is not working (you are within lock-on range and the enemy can see you.) So if you have a Darkmoon Blade buff on your weapon, everyone can see it close range.

              THIS MEANS IT'S SAFE TO WALK AROUND WITH A WEAPON BUFF IF YOU HAVE THE OBSCURING RING ON. THEY WILL NOT SEE IT.



              Important thing to note

              People were saying that wearing the Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring will hide the aura/spells, this appears to be incorrect. I tested the following things; Green Blossum, all Bug Pellets, Crystal Soul Mass, Storm Curved Sword weapon art and drawing Great Arrows. All these things could still be seen while wearing the Obscuring Ring and the Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring. This could be different for other spells/consumables etc. but I assume it is not any different.

              UPDATE - Tears of Denial is hidden by using the Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring

                "The wearer's position can be given away if they have an arrow drawn back, have an arrow or knife stuck into them, or are under the influence of a negative status effect that has a visual, such as poison."

                Not entirely true. Your position will be given away when you are under ANY status effect/buff that has a visual effect, also when they are positive.

                        just did a test with my friend. it was nerfed by a little bit. before you can get to an enemy player and lock onto them and still be invisible. now the new range has been pushed back by about 5-10 feet. the range at which you can be seen is the range at which you can lock onto the enemy player. if you can lock onto another player, they can see you.

                        • New patch adjusted range01 Jul 2016 23:09  

                          I did a test with my friend. It seems that the distance at which you become invisible has been pushed back by about 5-10 feet. as a rule of thumb now, if you can lock onto an enemy player, that's the range at which theyll be able to see you.

                            When you invade as a mad phantom, can they see you?? I invaded multiple times, and i have no effects on me, and the host saw me from very far away. I dont think the ring is effective when you invade as a mad phantom..

                              I've seen (har har har) people using this ring in fight clubs to prevent people from seeing there fighting style... since you have to be within fighting range to actually see someone with this ring on... so fight club spectators just get to see a single guy getting smacked repeatedly... or they just see thin air die right before there eyes.

                                        The equivalent rings in demons souls and dark souls both worked against npcs, so I figured this would be the same; but I haven't noticed any difference in the range that enemies can detect me.

                                            Tested this ring briefly with my friend because there's little info here. You don't become visible until about 2/3 lock on range. You have to fully move out of lock on range to go invisible once seen though. <br/><br/>It's really effective for a mage to be a cheap sniper. Used it to get all my Human Dregs. Although it's also frustrating to be a mage facing one of these so it's a double edged sword.
