Havel's Ring

A ring for warriors keen on heavy acoutrements. Increases maximum equip load.

This ring was named after Havel the Rock, the battlefield compatriot of Gwyn, the First Lord.

The art of war has been a constant since ages past, and those who would follow in Havel's footsteps are no fewer now than in his own day.

Havel's Ring is a Ring in Dark Souls 3.


Havel's Ring Effect

  • Increases maximum equip load by 15%
  • +1 Version: +17%
  • +2 Version: +18%
  • +3 Version: +19%
  • Weight: 1.5



Where to Find Havel's Ring



  • You can also find Havel's Set after defeating the Stray Demon if you have defeated the Havel Knight that spawns in Archdragon Peak.
  • Havel's Ring has been heavily nerfed; unlike it's Dark Souls counterpart, which raised equip load by a whopping 50%, this Havel's Ring only raises it by 15%.
  • This ring may be useful for fast-roll builds (<= 30% equipment load) as the actual usable weight allowance gained is the equivalent of a good number of points in vitality. If aiming for 30% load, this ring allows you to carry the following extra item weight after accounting for the ring's own weight ( extra weight = ((max_weight * ring_bonus/100)-1.5)*0.3 ):
    • Basic Ring
      • 10 Vitality: 1.8 (~ +6 vit)
      • 20 Vitality: 2.25 (~ +7.5 vit)
      • 30 Vitality: 2.7 (~ +9 vit)
      • 40 Vitality: 3.15 (~ +10.5 vit)
    • +3 Ring
      • 10 Vitality: 2.4 (~ +8 vit)
      • 20 Vitality: 2.97 (~ +9.9 vit)
      • 30 Vitality: 3.54 (~ +11.8 vit)
      • 40 Vitality: 4.11 (~ +13.7 vit)

      I just want to add that the raw defense boost you get with this ring simply by wearing better armor makes it much more potent than the Ring of Steel Protection with the PvP nerf. It is also multiplicative with vitality, so you can softcap on vitality and get a lot more value out of this ring, and the ring of favor. Raising your equip loads to those thresholds allows you to wear absolute fatty armor with a large weapon and greatshield. My personal favorite PvE co-op build is sofcapped health, stam, vit, 50 str, 40 dex, uber armor, black knight greataxe, and a shield with bash. Also consider that many people use simpler offhand items like the Grass Crest Shield or an infused parry tool, when you could be using the Old Wolf Curved Sword and get both Pontiff ring effects with the caveat being that it's just heavy. 15% ramping damage and a moderate heal on consecutive attacks is far more valuable to most playstyles than a ring slot. Just to reiterate, this ring is worth it even without a heavy vitality investment for the armor opportunity cost alone.

        do you need to make the ring first before you get the upgraded rings? havel's ring +0 dosen't seem all that worth it compared to 20K souls, but i'd like the upgraded ones in the first place

            Fun fact: This ring's effect stacks multiplicitively with RoF meaning you will have a 40% increase in equip load with RoF +3 and Havel +3, and if that's not enough add the Prisoner's chain for maximum fat.

              Dark Souls 1: Heavy armor will have a lot of benefits and a lot of drawbacks that coincide with someone's build. Dark Souls 2: We've changed the weight system a bit to allow heavy armor users a more welcoming spot. Dark Souls 3: No

                  What the***** were they thinking?! At 15% it barely even compensates for it's own weight. If you're worried about scaling so badly, give it a flat increase or at least a lower weight.

                    Ok I'm seeing a big problem. When you are about to consume a transposable soul it gives an option before you consume it.

                      I don’t wanna be a bug. But I’m helping my cousin through the game I messed up and he bought the boulder spell instead. If any one is willing to drop one for me. I’d give you the spell

                          On low vitality it may be wiser to invest a few more points into that and save yourself a ringslot than using Havels ring. It only really shines on higher vitality numbers.
