Covetous Silver Serpent Ring

A silver ring depicting a snake that could have been, but never was, a dragon. Fallen foes yield more souls.

Snakes are known as creatures of great avarice, devouring prey even larger than themselves by swallowing them whole.

If one's shackles are cause for discontent, perhaps it is time for some old-fashioned greed.

Covetous Silver Serpent Ring is a Ring in Dark Souls 3.



Covetous Silver Serpent Ring Effect

  • Fallen foes yield 10% more souls, rounded down.
  • +1 Version (NG+): +20%

  • +2 Version (NG++): +30%

  • +3 Version (The Dreg Heap): +35%
  • Weight: 1.2


Where to Find Covetous Silver Serpent Ring

  • In a chest behind an illusory wall at the top of Firelink Shrine. You need to have bought the key for 20000 Souls from the handmaiden. Take the right upper staircase in Firelink Shrine. Move past the the giant-tree on the right, unlock the door and go up the tower. You will reach a bridge, jump down onto a large roof on the left of the bridge. You will find a nest with an invisible crow baby (Pickle-Pee). Go straight past the nest and drop down onto a ledge. There is a door there that leads to an area with two crossing beams. Go straight towards the opposite wall (past a second nest) and strike down the illusory wall. Head forwards and drop down, the ring is in a chest to your right.

  • If you use the tree shortcut onto the roof of the darkened Firelink Shrine (after the Untended Graves), you can find the ring in the same location as you would at the hub firelink shrine. This is only if you have not collected it already at the Hub Firelink Shrine. Conversely, once you have collected the ring from the darkened Firelink Shrine, the chest will be found opened and empty in the hub Firelink Shrine.
  • Watch Fextra Video at 1h 53mins 46secs in
  • +1 Version (NG+): can be found in the elevator near the first bonfire in Irithyll Dungeon.

  • +3 Version (The Dreg Heap) After meeting the first angel that shoots at you fall down onto the perch and continue into the open door archway. From there you should see 2 Knight enemies and on the right hand side there is an area you enter. You make a right and you should be in some small quarter areas. Proceed all the way to the furthest wall north of you. Turn to the left and hit it to reveal an illusory wall. Climb the stairs there and just beufore you obtain Great Soul Dreg on your left, is a balcony. From that balcony you must drop down and there is your ring.

      In Dark Souls 1, you can equip this ring immediately after killing a boss and you will gain the extra souls once the game adds them to your character. Does this still work for Dark Souls 3?

        What is the total soul increase with the Shield of Want, Mendicant's Staff, Symbol of Avarice, and this ring +3?

          you do not need to buy the tower key to get the first ring, you may jump off the tree stump to get up onto the roof and break the wall. save yourself some time and hassle

            wearing silver serpent+3 with golden serpent+3 makes even a crab or a broken sword hollow from the graveyard worth of killing... tbh it makes literally any enemy worth of killing (except of course the ghrus (goat demons) from the swamp, these are just a big pile of garbo)

              Wearing the +3, defeated Demon Prince for a total of 101000. An extra 1000 souls? 1000 is not 35% of 100000. What am I missing here?

                    After fighting a boss, there is a slight pause before souls are dispensed to the player. As long as you equip the ring before the souls are given out, you will still get the 10% extra souls (in case you want to use a different ring during the fight with the boss).

                      One of the best rings for PvE, especially for NG.

                      You're gonna be killing a lot of enemies right? So why not equip the ring for an extra 10%?

                      Sure 10% looks small on paper but in the long run, it's gonna pay out.

                        Additively: 100% + 20% + 10% + 50% + 20% = 200%
                        Multiplicatively: 120% * 110% * 150% * 120%= 238%

                        base version + shield of want + symbol of avarice + mendicant's staff

                        Which is it? Multiplicative or additive?

                            You don't need the key. Just get nekkid and do the running jump off the tree outside the tower with the locked door onto the roof.

                              I noticed that the extra souls you get do not stack while finishing with a jump attack i learned this while farming the cobra wizard at the bell near the nameless king

                                  I took covetous silver serpent ring in firelink shrine. My problem is I couldn't find other covetous silver serpent ring +1 / +2. I know where I have to look but dead bodies and rings aren't located at that place. I've looked in my inventory but I haven't taked them. If I have covetous silver serpent ring, can't I find other +1/+2 rings ? (If I sell the ring, may I able to take +1/+2 rings?)

                                    1.3 (Silver Serpent Ring +2) x 1.2 (Shield of Want) x 1.2 (Medicant's Staff) x 1.50 (Symbol of Avarice) = 2.808Nearly 3 times the original soul amount.
