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.
  • 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. (Are positive status effects such as Tears of Denial also visible?)
  • 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.

      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.

              This want mixing with the hidden body spell. When I casted HB, my phantom stayed solid, but when I removed the ring my phantom became transparent. Anything I missed?

              • Dont use when playing as a Mound-Maker.01 Jul 2016 21:21  

                Got horrible results when trying to sneak up on people when wearing this ring and being in Mound-Makers. Thought i'd get a sneaky trollshot off with a bow but nope, they just saw it coming and started to shoot at me :)

                • New test results.01 Jul 2016 17:12  

                  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 17:09  

                    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.

                    • useless when a mad phantom?15 Jun 2016 15:18  

                      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..

                      • effective fight club hider02 Jun 2016 09:16  

                        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.

                        • Doesn't work with pve?08 May 2016 01:41  

                          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. The deacons outside of the pontiff bonfire are still pelting fireballs at me from a mile away.<br/><br/>Is this only for PvP now, or is it bugged?

                          • Range Info02 May 2016 21:08  

                            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.

                            • this is the thief ring ?25 Apr 2016 19:34  

                              in demon souls it has several uses not just pvp, the old hero fight was easy with the ring, can i reduce aggro with it ? it was my go to ring in the Shrine Of Storms.

                              • Homage to Demon's Souls Thief's Ring25 Apr 2016 16:14  

                                Has the same effects when the user is far away. Useful for sudden backstabs. Just thought it would be nice for some trivia of it.

                                  Are you tired of territorial covenants that just don't seem to work? Can't get summoned as a blue for your life? Did you like the idea of the Rat covenant from Dark Souls 2? Have I got the solution for YOU! For the low low price of just 2000 souls and 10 Pale Tongues, you too can make your own world a deathtrap for those pesky "Sunbro" invaders and Purpals! Once you are rank 10 in Rosaria's Fingers, all you have to do is purchase the Dried Finger from the Shrine Handmaid and get invaded yourself until you get a Seed of a Giant Tree. Then, pick your favorite location in the game (level appropriate of course), equip this ring, pop the Finger and a Seed, and sit back and let the souls come flying in! You can even equip the Way of Blue covenant to give our unemployed Bluebros a meaning to their life! For maximum stealth, go grab the Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring from Orbeck so you can really become the master of your own world.
