Calamity Ring

calamity ring

 

A ring made from the orange eye of a calamitous dragon. Receive double damage.

This ring has no useful powers, and is merely a symbol of dragon worship, a thing quietly passed down amongst its most fervent adherents, some of whom become convinced the task has been bestowed upon them as a sacred duty.

 Calamity Ring is a Ring in Dark Souls 3. This is a returning item in the Dark Souls series, originally obtained from killing Black Dragon Kalameet in the first game, Dark Souls.

 

Calamity Ring Effect

  • Reduces Absorptions by 100%
  • Weight: 0.8

 

 

Where to Find Calamity Ring

  • Use the Path of the Dragon Gesture in front of the dragon statue after the Dragon-Kin Mausoleum bonfire in Archdragon Peak.

 

 

Notes

  • Similar to the ring of the same name in the original Dark Souls, dropped by the black dragon Kalameet.
  • Does not affect fall damage
  • The ring has no real purpose, and is simply used to make the game harder.
  • Item could be used to troll new players if dropped, making their experience more difficult by taking in more damage.
  • Affects other absorption-reducing rings, i.e. any of the Clutch Rings, and makes them reduce absorption twice as much as they would normally, from 15% less to 30% less, and so on and so forth. This can be used to stack up damage taken until you effectively get one-shot by most things.

      If this ring enabled bloodborne's rally mechanic, the double damage would npt even matter.

      And don't start with "but it would be broken in pvp", like pvp was ever balanced.

        Basically its only use is to reduce the amount of hits you need to receive to activate RTSR by...a single hit.

          This with Tears of Denial, every single hypermode buff you can think about and Ultra Greatsword using stomp can do instakill in the first trade.

            I imagine using this after my 5th playthrough. What's insane is that even though there are items in the game that provide benefits for a clear disadvantage like the crown of dusk, clutch rings this one just straight challenges you. It gives you ideas, it doesn't just make you put a straight sword and a straight sword on a scale- It asks you the question: Do you want to feel like you've done something?

                I remember thinking this was a joke item at first, but then I ended up getting so good at the game that I would wear it just to have any semblance of challenge. I think this ring is homage to Miyazaki's true vision for the Souls games before corporate higher ups and SJW casuals forced him to visualize and bastardize these games

                    Occupies a ring slot, weighs 0.8, makes the user take double damage. Yeah, this is THE god tier ring we didn't deserve.

                      It wouldn't make much sense, but imagine if equipping this made your eyes glow white like those ninja skeletons. Would be like saying to other players "i'm your god, scrub".

                      Now, if skull ring gave you red glowing eyes, it would stack with this to become the ultimate memebringer.

                        One of the best rings by a long shot if your not using this in your build then your not doing it right. the ring makes you take twice as much damage but put out twice as much damage glass cannon style.
                        don't believe me test it out in pvp total life changer!

                              "Can be used to troll new players" it literally states how you'll take double damage in the description. New players are really fun to mess with via cat ring, but this would only work on straight up illiterates

                                Honestly so much of this game I wish I could rebalance. Like this ring. Rather than make it a single edged sword aim squarely for your jugular, I’d make this a double edged sword. Sort of like (((current stats + gear) x rings) x doubler as unique final calculation) Probably call the mod the baby mod or something demanding sing since there’d be quite a few buffs. Maybe even add a new mechanic like overhead or something.

                                  could someone add the hidden use in in Pvp? this ring gives you 20% MORE absorption if you're invading so its quite viable.

                                    makes you take double damage in pve but in pvp it gives you a super secret 15% boost in all defense/resistance stats try it out no joke

                                      Well, game magazines got what they wanted, an easy mode.
                                      Funny thing is, it was enabled from the beginng of the game.

                                        It has a purpose if you wish to go into hyper mode as soon as possible. In invasions, where you enter with full health, time is of the essence.

                                          Try wearing this with no am or on and weilding a broken straight sword+0 with no SL level ups then see if it's still useless... Best ring in the game.. I think it will literally teach you the game. For example you will memorize every enimy move set atttempting to pass the game and eventually you will become a better player with better reaction time and better strategy..

                                            I will drop the ring four someone if they want it, I'm not gonna sit on here and lie like most ppl on this thread and even say I'd wear this ring, the game is plenty hard enough for me. I do believe some are good and would wear four a challenge but not as many as I see here talking smack, I'll run into you guys eventually and you'll probably run off and heal , but just my thought lol, easier said then done , the ring is useless to me, but ds3 they did great job on love the game, still think there should be a practice dummy or something in the fire link shrine, majula, etc, to see exactly what damage were doing because so many enemies have different strengths and weaknesses I'd like to know exactly how much output I'm doing, and wow there are a lot of weapons on this game and cool spells four a mage like myself,

                                              I find it incredibly dumb how you only obtain the ring near the end of the game. I think you should be able to get it at the very start so you can play through the entire game with much more difficulty in case you want a fun little challenge.

                                                I would like if it gave at least a visual change to the player when being equipped. Kind of like "look i wear the hardmodering im so kewl". Dont know what. Maybe a glow, or something unique when using a weapon, maybe make the player character bigger or get flames around the playermodel (similar to the endscene of the game where the character basically burns).
                                                Would be cool.

                                                  I disagree that this ring should give you some hidden or small bonus (besides something purely cosmetic maybe). i disagree with the notion that 'EVERY item in the game needs a purpose, even if it's just a small one! There's no point to an item with NO reason to use it!' there IS a point to this item, it's purely to challenge yourself. Just like the plank shield, and just like the broken straight sword, both items that are just plain awful in every respect, with no redeeming qualities at all. Do these items need some random bonus properties that would actually make them really good? Of course not. There are plenty of useful items in the game. I believe that these games should have a little something for EVERYBODY - that includes people who deliberately want to use the worst items, items that are the worst they could possibly be.

                                                    Tried a damage amplification build wearing this, two of the clutch rings, and Prisoner's Chain in the arena. Dat damage!

                                                      For everyone wondering what the purpose is: it is to troll you. Yes like the amulet, but also for the ringmaster achievement this is the ONLY ring that is not just there for the taking (covenant rewards not counting since you will get them eventually if you just keep feeding items to the covenant).

                                                          Obviously from the description, this is a troll item. People put it on for some "special effect" buts just FromSoft trolling you. The description: "a thing quietly passed down amongst its most fervent adherents, some of whom become convinced the task has been bestowed upon them as a sacred duty." references loosely to players, who desperately seek answers when there are none, just like the pendant.

                                                          • Why not have the player earn more souls or somthing at least? Not everyone would go for a double damage no benefit ring in the name of challenge. Couldnt it be like fire clutch ring, maybe like 25% more physical damage? I know take double damage, but deal double damage is OP as hell, all them spellers and heavy hitters would lose their bananas over it. I wish it would at least give us cool glowing red eyes or an epic aura.

                                                                So this was around the end April, I had actually been summoned as a Blade of Darkmoon to a players aid, it was in the Archdrake Peak, I ran towards the bonfire and saw the invader attacking the host, who was rolling, and died moments after, but during the tiny little end of the fight I saw, I swear I saw the 'kalameet eye' effect hovering over the world masters head, but it was a bit larger. I seriously don't know if this was caused by lag in a rare occurrence where the world master had used the dragon head stone and the animation from that lingered and I mistook it for something else, I'm actually doing a calamity ring playthrough to see if there is anything it may do, but just thought I'd share that, idk if anyone else has had anything similar or at least knows what would be a common thing I could of mistaken it for if there is some, because this had me really wondering about it.

Maybe wearing it through NG plus, gives you some super special item? Maybe it is there just to give the whiners that say this game is too easy, something else to whine about?

It really made pvp all the more sweet when you win while taking double damage. Now there is literally no point in wearing it. 1/10, only got it for the achievement.

One of the big things in the souls games is that the game is as hard as you want it to be (which is why diehard fans hate the drake sword in the first game). It's why people do challenge runs of sorts, and this ring is just another thing people can use to make the game harder.
