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 of taking 30% more damage.
  • Raises number of i-frames from 12 (.4 sec) to 16 (.533 sec), or a 1.33x increase (tested via Sony Vegas and ingame test footage).
  • 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)




  • 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.
  • You seem to lose around 12 (Or 12%) damage absorption in all resistances. See this image, a comparison of two different armor sets (First being outrider knight set and second being yuria's set with hood of prayer as headpiece) See: "Effect" section, above.

      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.

                      I can't wait to invade all those scrubs that relied on this ring, they're two friends, and their Seed. Lol the tears will taste so good come next patch.

                        Haven't taken this thing off since I got it. I love it. It's my baby. There are some boss fights I'm sure would've taken me many more attempts without it.

                          Here's a fun test: go to any article for a semi-decent item/spell/weapon/ring/armor and type in "this should be nerfed"

                          You know what should really be nerfed? Your cry baby attitudes. Git gud you *****ing casuls, don't cry cause things rebalance your gank squad bull*****.

                            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...
