Blue Tearstone Ring

A ring set with a large rare tearstone jewel. Temporarily boosts damage absorption when HP is low.

This stone is said to be a tear of sorrow of the goddess Caitha, and of course, tears are always more beautiful near death.

Blue Tearstone Ring is a Ring in Dark Souls 3


Blue Tearstone Ring Effect

  • When your HP is below 20%, your damage absorption will increase by 20% for all damage types; 15% absorption increase for PvP.
  • Like most damage absorption effects. it has diminishing returns with other sources of absorption, The 20% is a 0.8 multiplier to the remaining damage received after absorption from armour or other sources. Expect the actual bonus to be closer to 15-18%, depending on the rest of your gear.
  • In early game your limited health pool means this ring is unlikely to have enough effect to actually save you under most circumstances. By mid game you'll undoubtedly have better alternatives to wear.



Where to Find Blue Tearstone Ring




  • Greirat asks the player to deliver the ring to "Loretta at the base of the High Wall"
  • Has the exact same effect as the Lloyd's Shield Ring, except at low health.

      The Blue Tearstone Ring also procs on attacks that would bring you below 20%. Which means that as long as an attack inflicts 120% or lower of your current HP, you'll survive. It is kind of a soft Tears of Denial.
      Example: Say you have 1000 HP. A backstab deals 1200 damage. But with the Blue Tearstone Ring equipped, that backstab now only dealt around 960 damage. Give or take a small amount depending on your equipment. The point is, YOU SURVIVED.

        Why would Greyrat give you this ring of all others? It might be a nod to Demon's Souls, this ring was named the "Dull Rat's Ring" back then.

          This should not be used as extra defense when low hp. If you are at 50%, for example, and take a fire breath from midir that would kill you it will reduce that damage by 20%, leaving you with a sliver of hp, where you can heal up back to full.

            It can be really useful against certain bosses that do a lot of damage in a single hit if you're going a low Vigor build. As has been said before the damage reduction procs retroactively so it can stop you from being one shotted. If you have enough health to survive without it you probably don't want it.

              I can also confirm that this ring *will* reduce a damage retroactively, making it actually a pretty decent choice. The point of the ring is not to protect you while you're already at 20% health. The point is to prevent you from *dying* to a hit. It's just worded in a weird way.

                Pretty much only valid on a monster tank build and, even then, you'd be hard pressed to make it worth two more hits or so since you get diminishing returns. I guess it's worth it during High Wall since, well, you don't have a lot of other rings.

                    This ring's effect procs to retroactively to reduce the damage of the hit that sends you below the 20% threshold, so it can turn a hit that would have killed you at above 20% health into a hit that only almost kills you, giving you a chance to drink estus or whatever. A few other people have tried to tell y'all this in the comments here, and they're correct. Disregard anyone refuting it, they did not actually test it. Does that make this a top ring for NG? No, of course not. Does it make it worth wearing early in NG, perhaps until the Catacombs? Sure. The ring absolutely prevented more than a few deaths in my first NG years ago.

                      I love this ring. It allows me to survive the constant back stabs that invaders do. They always run out of stamina before I run out of life.

                        At first I thought this ring was pointless but then I noticed that what the ring actually does is reduce all damage at 20% even if you were above 20% when you were hit. So, if you were at 30% you take full blunt for that 10% but automatically ruduces any additional damage after 20%. Still not that great tho.

                          Would this be viable against large gank squads as a spear of the church? Started to wonder if my vig/vit/str build would benefit from this over dragonscale ring.

                            OK, this is the reality: You get hit, your HP gets below 20%, the ring effects are triggered and you get extra damage absorption, you get hit again, you die. So to summarize it, there is no *****ing way this ring is useful against ANY enemy, unless you have like 40 Vigor and you are fighting hollows at the Cemetery of Ash, or perhaps it can save you in PvP against a faith build... No, really, if you are below 20% HP, you will die in 1 or 2 hits regardless of whether you are wearing this ring or not. If the ring added plain defense (not absorption) then it would be useful at low levels (and perhaps even beyond), but as of now it is just useless. Please someone tell FromSoftware that they should design items that FIT the actual game they are making.

                              I LOVE this ring. I'm not much one for PvP, but as far as PvE goes the ring is fantastic. It's saved me so many times. The percentage may not seem terribly high but it feels high. I can't express how many times an attack has hit me at low health that would typically drain a relatively large chunk of my hp, only for that damage to be negated by this ring. Has carried me through numerous greedy situations. Overall, underappreciated and worth praising.

                                I noticed that this ring does more for your absorption the lower your absorption is. At -100 absorption it increased it to -60. At -30 it increased it to -4. At 0 it increased it to 20. At ~67 physical absorption it increased it to ~74.

                                  If you would be hit to below 20%, the ring will activate. So you can be sitting at 30% health and be hit for 15% of your total, in that circumstance the ring would activate and reduce the damage.

                                  This can actually lead to a very strong tank build by stacking it a few other things, namely: Lloyd's Shield Ring, Ring of Life, Ring of Favor, and Tears of Denial, often letting you taking a surprising amount of hits in PvP.

                                    This Ring is good early game but some tanky builds csn make use of this ring for PVP in late game.

                                    This ring will save your ass 99% of the time and its been the reason on a few occasions why my enemies ate***** cause they wasted their stamina bar on what should have been a kill and than they get nuked lol

                                      This ring isn't "useless". Actually, it has saved me countless times against death hits (the hit which will kill you). That happens because when you get hit, the health you lose is automatically reduced by the ring. I really appreciate that.

                                        Absolutely useless, the red has its uses for one-shot builds, but this is trash. Unless you are doing low-level PvP where the incoming damage is less but even then with the near guarantee two-hit on most weapons the follow-up will likely kill you.

                                        The only way this could be of use is a low-level high vigor build but even then it would have to be a 30-40 vigor deprived (and that is all you level)
