Where to Find Wolf Ring


  • Poise gained is affected by current poise. Already Poise heavy armors will result in diminishing returns.


  1. Unlike its DS1 counterpart, this version of the ring does not give you an aura. Because of that and the fact that it has no apparent effect on the wearer, you cannot tell when someone is using this ring online.

      I got this rings +3 version with all my characters so far, but the only one that provided noticable effects was my "Iron Tarkus" he can finally legitimately tank hits. I took on a couple red phantoms, one even using a Great Hammer, and I kept on swinging my Greatsword+10 right through their blows and even delivering some pretty cruel strong swings, and this is all ONE HANDED to boot. Finally not a useless ring. Time to take down the competition with a friggen Vitality build of all things.

        i killed the invader in the ringed city, but he didn't give me the wolf ring +3...
        i was not embered
        i didn't level up enough in the wolf covenant to get the basic wolf ring
        I am in my first walkthrough (no NG+/...)
        so I am wondering if the +3 wolf ring is dropped only if you already have the basic ring...
        anyone can help me on that ?

          Since the last update, this ring is now a valuable item. Its poise boosts hyper armour when you're using a heavy weapon. No more getting staggered when attacking with a heavy weapon.

            Any1 Know if you can get another ring through NG and giving the covenant items again? the non+1 version because i sold alot of my non plus one versions without realizing Id need them all at once for the Lord of the rings achievement

              I need just a few of the covenant items for Platinum. Would someone able to trade for the Wolf Ring, Warmth, and Darkmoon Blade/Ring? I have Sacred Oath, Great Lightning Spear, Great Deep Soul, and the Obscuring Ring if anyone needs those. PSN: Dragonfire2323

                    Comment immediately below is incorrect. See the poise page; I tested it out myself and their poise formula is correct. There are diminishing returns the higher base poise your armor already has. For example, base poise of 10 with ring becomes 15.4, base poise of 20 becomes 24.8, base poise of 30 becomes 34.2, base poise of 40 becomes 43.6.

                    Use the formula on the poise page I reproduced those numbers exactly by twiddling the ring slot in game.

                      So if I am understanding this correctly, there is a lot to be said about poise that is very absent from this page. The Wolf ring doesn't 'increase poise' persay, but it instead reduces the amount of poise damage you take by 4% 6%, and 8% respectivly. Your poise stat is essentially the reduction of poise damage in a percent you will recieve per hit during your active poise frames. So say you get hit with a weapon that deals 18 poise damage, and you have no armor, but wear the wolf ring+0, so instead of the full 18, you will take 17.28 poise damage, and if that number exceeds your overall poise health, ie your poise health bar is depleted to 0, then your guard will be broken. And note that your poise frames (and thus poise health) are only active during certain points of your attack animations. Really, it is the weapons themselves that grant the poise during their attack animations is what people should pay attention to if they care about poise.

                        Can someone trade with me this ring? I miss it for my last achievment, but I don't want to spend another couple of hours on farming. Of course I will give it back and also you can get whatever you want from my eq. Steam name: Cahir (avatar with owl). Thank you

                          The poise returns feel... a little low. Especially considering that this is occupying an entire ring slot? 10-15 sounds more reasonable imo, possibly even a bit more.

                            I am trying to get the master of rings achievement on Xbox One and all I need is the Wolf Ring but I am in NG+5 so I can't find anyone to invade in covenants. If willing to trade me ring, msg CaptPnutBrittle on Xbox One

                              With the poise changes the ng++ version over the ng version actually seems worth going for if your build has a slot for it and wants the poise at all. Wonder why this ring gets a 100% bonus over other rings barely hitting 20-30% bonuses.
