Fire Clutch Ring

Ring depicting a hand grasping a red stone. Increases fire attack, but compromises damage absorption.

An old fable in Londor claims that the lure of the clutch ring reaches out to the crestfallen, who might otherwise be overcome by despair.

Fire Clutch Ring is a Ring in Dark Souls 3.


Fire Clutch Ring Effect

  • Increases fire attack by 15% in PvE and 8% in PvP
  • Reduces Physical, Strike, Slash, and Thrust Absorptions 10% in PvE and 15% in PvP
  • Weight: 0.8


Where to Find Fire Clutch Ring

  • Found at Undead Settlement close to the Cliff Underside bonfire, where there's the potholder, 3 undead throwing firebombs from a balcony, and several explosive barrels. It's behind the torture device at the end of a long planked walkway. (video location)




  • Reduction in absorption is calculated by increasing your current absorption by 10% and then subtracting 10 (i.e. New = 1.1xOld- 10; calculated with excel). 
  • This ring increases any fire damage on all weapons, including natural fire damage, infusions, and buffs, and fire-based Pyromancies.
  • You can counter the damage-taken increase by wearing a Ring of Steel Protection, which increases damage absorption by 10%.

      Just to clarify as the OP formula is not straightforward to understand, The ring adds 10% of damage taken.

      Say for example your current absorption is 20%. It means you are taking 80% damage.
      Therefore, you add 10% : 80 x 1.1 = 88% damage taken
      Thus your absorption is now 100-88= 12% absoption

        Does this ring increase toxic/poison pyromancies ? It is said "increases the fire damage" so I suppose not but you never know.

          10% Reduction in absorption is actually applied in the same way as pieces of armour, only with a -10% absorption value. Convert the numbers to decimal then use this formula:

          (1 - Armour1ABS) * (1 - Armour2ABS) * (1 - Armour3ABS) * (1 - Armour4ABS) * (1 - )

          I can't quite work out why the numbers would come out the same as the formula given above, but they do (also checked in excel). I'd say this version of the formula makes more sense though.

              Fire clutch, Great swamp & Witch's ring stacking?21 Jun 2016 16:32  

              Does this ring stack with the great swamp and/or witch's rings? For some reason their pages say they stack with each other but nothing is mentioned about the fire clutch ring.

                That formula can't be right.New= (1.1*Old) - 10 would mean that any defense over 100 results in an increase of defenses from the ring.

                  Using this ring on a fire infused Long Sword +4 is just amazing. Just beat the Cathedral of the Deep and finally being able to onehit much of the annoying trash makes my life easier.

                    But does it boost damage for weapons that have fire damage already on them for instance the demons great axe?

                      I did a little testing and it seems that if your wear 2 different Clutch Rings(for something like Dancer's swords) at the same time you DON'T get a damage boost from either of them, they cancel each other out for some reason.

                        Editted the page as there were several errors and some missing info08 Apr 2016 01:05  

                        Contrary to earlier beliefs, the ring reduces Physical, strike, slash and thrust defense absorption not fire absorption. I also added that the ring indeed increases pyromancy spell damage, tested with the different fireball spells.
