Dragonscale Ring

Ring of Oceiros, former king of Lothric. Reduces damage from backstabs.

In his later years, Oceiros became fascinated with dragons. After going mad, he was more commonly known as the Consumed King. Many assassins were dispatched to his domain, but none returned.

The Consumed King ascribed his resilience to the divine protection of the dragon scale."

Dragonscale Ring is a Ring in Dark Souls 3.



Dragonscale Ring Effect

  • Contrary to the ring's description, it reduces all critical hit damage by 30%. This includes backstabs and ripostes (parries or guard breaks.)


Where to Find Dragonscale Ring

  • Looted from a corpse in the Consumed King's Garden. It's halfway up the second lift in this area. You will need to jump off as it goes up or down. ()




  • The Dragonscale Ring is the only effective counter against the Hornet Ring's whopping critical boosts, barring a careful playstyle. Although it doesn't entirely negate the Hornet Ring's damage, it is still an invaluable tool if one finds themselves prone to suffering at the hand of critical attacks; 30% protection will do more than 0%.
  • Plunging attacks may or may not be affected by the Dragonscale ring. This needs more testing.

        If someone is spamming parries praying for a lucky shot, just throw this on your last ring slot rather than whatever other throwaway ring you have there. Ignore all the git gud bull*****from kids who have never invaded in their life, any decent invader will be swapping their last ring around during an invasion anyway. I'll take a 300 point damage reduction from a 1,000HP spammer attack over an extra dash of stamina regen any day.

          this ring is a false hope. if you are gud you avoid getting critted. If you are aren't gud you will be critted until you are dead.

            This is a good defensive ring if you can fit it. Anyone can get backstabbed these days and this ring will ease the hurt. In particular ultra users should get out of their way to open a slot for this ring, in my opinion. (I never ultra but I sometimes backstab those who do)

              This ring is only good on an ugs build since they are the most prone to backstabs. And if you get backstabbed with any with any other build, it was likely due to your own stupidity.

                I find I always end up with one of three sets of Rings when I do a Build.

                Favor, Havels, Chloranthony, SITUATIONAL
                Favor, Speckled Stoneplate, Knight Slayers, SITUATIONAL
                Favor, Wolf, Dragonscale, SITUATIONAL

                  I started maining this in group PvP cuz I'm usually using soothing sunlight to cover my partner. People literally don't stop trying to backstab when they see casters. Also it's good for people who fish. Honestly I wish the left backstab fishing in DS1 and PvE.

                    Seems to reduce all crit-damage (though not sure if all by 30%) It let me survive a hornet riposte so it definitely does something.

                      Works only on players?11 Sep 2016 08:51  

                      I tried getting backstabbed by enemies with and without this ring equipped and there was no damage difference whatsoever. Can else confirm this?

                        I tested the different crit with my friend while the dragonscale ring was equipped and it also reduced the damage from the parry, the poise break and the plunging attack

                          Backstabs only?20 Apr 2016 16:55  

                          Does anyone know if this affects any other critical types (i.e. headshots, or guard-breaks)?

                            A bit shoddy guidance here but will try my best.After defeating the dancer and lowering the ladder, climb up it and take a left. Infront of you will be a knight, and behind him an elevator towards ocerious.After reaching the ground floor you'll want to stick to the right after finishing up any hostiles. No need to hug the wall in the toxic puddles though.After a while you'll reach a shortcut elevator, ride it half way and jump off. A few meteres ahead will be the ring along with a priest.

                              from EZSPECIAL via /r/DarkSouls3JPN sent 19 minutes agoMight be wrong but isn't that the one you get by dropping off the lift near oceiros? The one you use as a shortcut to get back to oceiros boss room, from the dancer bonfire
