Carthus Bloodring

carthus bloodring

Ring worn by warriors of the sand kingdom, Carthus. Boosts rolling invincibility, at the cost of defense.

The sword technique of Carthus allows for fluid movement with a curved sword. Masters of the technique are said to dazzle their opponents by moving as weightlessly as a grain of sand. They live for their High Lord Wolnir, conqueror of most kingdoms known to their people.

 Carthus Bloodring is a Ring in Dark Souls 3.

 

 

Carthus Bloodring Effect

  • Boosts rolling invincibility frames, at the cost reduced absorption by 30%.
  • Raises number of fast and mid roll i-frames from 13 (0.433 sec) to 16 (0.533 sec), or a 23.08% increase.
  • Raises number of fat roll i-frames from 12 (.400 sec) to 15 (0.5 sec), or 25% increase.
  • Weight: 0.8

 

 

Where to Find Carthus Bloodring

  • Found at Catacombs of Carthus, from the bonfie near the rolling ball, down the stair and to the right (past the wheel skeletons). 
  • Video location (fextralife video starting at 1h 3m 13s)

 

 

Notes

  • The ring only affects rolls, and will not improve other dodge techniques, like backsteps or the quickstep skill.
  • The ring will make your absorptions negative if they are low enough.

      In my first playthrough, I just equiped this ring without properly reading what it do. It took some time for me to find out, why I sudennly recive so much more damage.

        Spamming rolls with this equipped leaves you vulnerable only for 133ms in-between rolls. That's literally the time it takes for the human eye to blink. Basically, as long as you have stamina, you have godmode enabled. 80% of the roll is iframes(17/21).

          People say this ring is bad because the cost is too high but in my opinion, it this game where most enemies can oneshot/twoshot the player and the shield it useless against most bosses, this is one of the best rings.

            You know about all that "Different damage absorption in pve and pvp" thing? Does this work here or no? I'm just wondering, maybe it's not 30% for pvp, but 10% or something, which would've made this ring very viable.

              The fact that From even thought a ring like this was needed in DS3 is proof that they really didn't understand how their own game works. Even medium weight rolls have I-frames so free they practically pay you lmao

              • Anonymous

                In ds1 you have dark wood grain, it adds 2 iframes to your rolls AND it shortens the recovery time for your rolls by 4 frames and FREKEN NINJA FLIPS, even after the nerf to equip load(changed from 50% to 25%) it’s still one of the best rings in the game.


                Now compare that to Carthus bloodring which only adds 3-4 Iframes while lowering absorption by 25%-30%, that means you will you will at least have SOME negative absorption or very low absorption (not great).

                Don’t get me wrong the iframes from the carthus bloodring is very useful and I feel pretty agile with this ring while light rolling, but the defense penalty is too punishing for pvp.

                  why use this ring when you can just move to china? the lag will give you infinite i-frames with no absorption cost!

                  • Anonymous

                    I don’t get it... you take ALL of your absorptions from 115ish, down to... NEGATIVE 9 each?

                    For 4 more I frames, only when rolling?

                    >.>

                    • I came late to the party with dark souls 3(i think it may have been for the best too), i had been obsessed with demons and dark souls but took a long break. Sounds like this ring was somewhat like the DWGR of dks3, except not as bad. Man I felt like I was the only one using Havel+Fap, the DWGR just gave so many advantages. Thankfully it was nerfed(fixed imo), i find this ring rather balanced. Dark Souls 3 is more balanced in general for most part, but each game has serious issues. Still great and the pvp is fun enough to put hundreds of hours into, so.... have fun everyone, dont take it too seriously.

                          good increase when heavy rolling, I guess if you want to be encumbered and still dodge attacks instead of using a shield this might be useful. Absorption isn't that bad of a cost if you don't want to trade blows. This allows to use something else than a quickstep weapon as a heavy armored knight, so it raises your offense by lowering your defense. Really depends on your playstyle though.

                            I didn't start playing DS3 until after the last ever patch, so I don't know how powerful this ring was. However, the biggest problem with DS3 PVP is how easy it is to dodge/flee from your opponent. I can't believe there are people who are mad this ring got patched. Why would you want to make the worst aspect of the PVP even worse?

                              This ring can be usefull when it doesnt decrease number of hits you need to take before dying. Otherwise you are making yourselve small misservice. Roll artists can just ignore me and pick it anyway.

                                Can you pull off a carthus style roll tactic with this plus the milk ring? Or is it too much ring investment?

                                  In a game where you have near unlimited stamina and rolls they throw this ring into the mix. Seriously wish they had a pvp team

                                    I don't know why From thought this ring was a good idea, even with a nerf. Rolls are already cheap and powerful enough as they are without adding a ring that increases iframes, quite ridiculous.

                                      Great for beating Nameless King, put your weight below 30% and wear this, you defense will be much lower but it will make the whole fight much easier

                                      • Never used it, always thought that 30% more dmg is not worth it, plus if you know how to play the game properly normal rolls should be enough to avoid nearly every attack.

                                          Is it still trash pvp? Would I get any use out of it with a high poise/def SL40 medium roll character doing PVP around Old Wolf?

                                              I found a good use for this after the nerf. SL 1 to 20 run where late game/DLC bosses one-shot you without this ring anyway. Shockingly useful just for this.

                                                For those who say this ring is uselsess. Its not. I was repetedly rekt by the dancer untill I tried this ring. Also. Try it with high poise armor. Poise functions as additional Iframes.

                                                        So this is why i'm getting so many "God dodgers", i use great hammers, and is expected people to roll many attacks, but i'm getting to many ***holes the easily, and literally, dodge everything, even the suprise/delayed moves. Such a shame, like the poke attacks and turtle noobs wasn't enough...

                                                          This should be nerfed tbh.
                                                          And rolls in general, even though I like playing nimble characters that can get destroyed easily without dodges this just makes it piss easy. You can abuse the iFrames so easily.

                                                            Makes the already easy to spam rolls from benign tumor to terminal cancer. I fought a guy with this thing on, I hit him once for half his HP, he killed me anyway because roll spam yaaaaaaay. It's a good ring for boss fights, but use this in PvP with the washing pole/dark sword if you want to be the king of cancer.

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        I find this to be a situational ring. I probably wouldn't wear it for an entire playthrough, since I like the challenge of having to time my rolls correctly. That being said, I just beat the Pontiff Sulyvahn boss with this ring equipped. I was having a miserable time trying to survive his constant onslaught of combos. After roughly 10 attempts and my patience/sanity waning, I tried using this ring. I figured that if at any point I screw up and get caught in a combo I'll probably be dead anyway, so the defence reduction won't really matter all that much. This ring made a huge difference and I'm happy to say that Pontiff Sulyvahn is now very, very dead. So my suggestion is to keep this ring in mind for tough bosses that require a lot of precise rolling.

                                                                        • If you have other ring slots you don't mind swapping, then pairing this Ring with the Ring of Steel Protection (+1/+2) and/or the Speckled Stoneplate Ring (+1 recommended) will do a great job at bumping your physical and magic defense back up. This is only recommended if you are still worried about getting hit with such low defensive stats. It is by no means needed as the Carthus Bloodring is just so ***** great with i-frames.

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            • Anonymous
