Hornet Ring is a Ring in Dark Souls 3.
- Increases critical damage (backstabs and ripostes).
- The % of critical damage increased now depends on infusion, weapon upgrade level, wether you back stab or riposte, and the weapon itself.
- Weight: 1.1
- Found at Dark Firelink Shrine after Champion Gundyr in the Untended Graves. Keep right as you move up, the pathway is about level with the entrance to the Shrine. It is guarded by a Black Knight.
- Only appear after Abyss Watchers have been defeated.
- You must defeat the Abyss Watchers for the ring to appear.
- On enemy players or NPC invaders this ring changes the riposte animation to 2-3 hits instead of just one, the overall damage increase seems to be higher than 30% in that case, needs confirmation.
- The ring is found in front of a tombstone with a Farron Greatsword leaning against it. The same location where Hawkwood is praying, and later where his shield can be found, in Firelink Shrine.
