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 (.433 sec) to 17 (.566 sec), or a 1.31x (pulled from frame data that was recorded while looking at the state the player character is in slowed down significantly).
  • Raises number of fat roll i-frames from 12 (.400 sec) to 16 (.533 sec) on fat roll, or 1.33x 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)




  • 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.

        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.
