Horsehoof Ring

An old ring with a seal depicting a horse's hoof. Boosts kick effect.

Unbreakable Patches adored this ring and the feeling that it gave him when he kicked his marks into the depths of treacherous traps, but suffered no shortage of ridicule from his associates for relying so heavily on the tired old trick.

But who is the sorrier? The horse who knows only to kick, or the fool who approaches the old beast without thought?

 Horsehoof Ring is a Ring in Dark Souls 3.

 

Horsehoof Ring Effect

  • Enemies lose 40% more Stamina when guarding against your kicks
  • Weight: 0.6

 

 

Where to Find Horsehoof Ring

 

 

Notes

  • For this to appear in Patches' shop inventory, Greirat must be in Firelink Shrine at the same time as Patches' at any point in the game.  Select Talk in Patches' menu, and if he mentions Greirat, then the ring will be added to his inventory.

 

Trivia

  • Description likely a reference to the many incarnations of Patches' actions in Demon's Souls, Dark Souls, as well as Bloodborne, where he had a tendency to kick players off of ledges into traps.

      idk why people say its useless, maybe in pvp it is but against any strong enemy with a shield its great (Lothric Knights, Silver Knights, Havel etc)

        God, I just found out this existed after many playthroughs and nothing can describe my disappointment after looking it up and finding out it doesn't do some mega boof kick that sends enemies back in time

          This ring is completely useless. The problem here is getting a kick to hit someone. That kick takes 3/4 of a second and a normal player's reaction roll in 1/6 of a second. The only way you re getting a kick is in a player right next to your chameleon spell, and that is the last kick you will EVER connect.

            To everyone saying this is useless, the Wiki fails to mention how this ring also adds extra hitstun time to your kicks, and allows you to combo kicks into a much wider range of attacks. Try it with ultras, for example.

              Does anyone ever think about how Dark Souls 2 had the best guardbreak and for some reason we just returned back to the ds1 guardbreak? I think about that a lot.

              • Anonymous

                One of the most useless rings in the game because of how SLOW the kicks are in this game. About as slow as the guard-breaks were in ds2.

                And no, it doesn't make any fking sense. While you wind up for a damn kick, the other already swung ledo's greathammer twice

                  hehe, the little firebreathing stone lizards in archdragon peak will roll over twice instead of only once when you kick them with this ring equipped

                    Maybe, just a makeshift theory, based on the design, maybe this was an early/homemade design for Smough’s ring if he became the fifth knight of Gwyn? But after the bone incident and whatever happened to Smough, Patches came along and was, well he did what Patches does.

                      To be honest, it would’ve been cool if the animation changed for the kick. Like your kick has a much stronger push-off, or you just *****ing spin kick shields away.

                      • Should be noted that this ring increases the stagger duration (on players at least). After landing a kick, I was able to hit my friend with an UGS with him spamming the roll key. It's a very noticeable difference.

                          Best ring in the game, personally. I've found it gives you so much hyper Armour I was able to kick three fume ultra Wielders off a cliff while being struck by them six times. Didn't get staggered whatsoever and actually I found out this ring has a sun princess effect and regent 15 health per tick. The thing is, only the one dropped by patches does this, so go out and kill him it's worth it.

                            Did this at least 30 times but for some reasons he does not sell the ring to one of my characters... yes I forgave him and yes cathedral gates are all open. Nothing critical, I don't plan to use it but it's weird how a result is different in DS3 when it shouldn't be.

                              It is possible to get 2 of these. First purchase the one in Pat's inventory. Then kill him, he'll drop another ring, his spear and ashes.

                                I followed the questline, and when I told him greirat, was in irithyll, he wouldn't sell me anything, only talking about greirat. When I came back later, patches was gone and I didn't get the chance to buy the Catarina armor. Patches has not returned for a long time.

                                  I killed Patches for his ring, but he fell of the side up top, his item is floating in mid air... Does leaving the area reset the item drop location?

                                    Enemies lose 10% more Stamina when guarding against your attacks as well. (etc Knight-Slayer Ring) Confirmed Testing 4/26/2016

                                      "Enemies lose 10% more Stamina when guarding against your attacks as well. (etc Knight-Slayer Ring) Confirmed "So if the above is confirmed, does the Horsehoof ring increase stamina consumption upon blocking an attack in addition to the Knight-Slayer Ring?Furthermore, does the Knight-Slayer Ring increase the stamina consumption of a blocked kick?They really should have just made the kick a clean guard break to stop people from turtle-ing so ***** much. They aren't even hard to kill most of the time, just really annoying. I've double kicked some people with their greatshields with the hoof ring and they soaked both kicks. That is ridiculous.

                                        Even though I have opened the front door of the Cathedral Patches does not have the ring for sale in his inventory.I missed him at the cathedral/ & of course killed the giants and only met Patches back at firelink. I have spoken to Ziegward in the well but not rescued him or bought his armour from Patches nor have I sent Greirat on his second "shopping" trip (yet).So simply opening the door of the cathedral (as stated above) is not enough for the ring to be available. I assume you have to open the door and speak to him at the cathedral (unsure about killing the giants first or after...).

                                          The trigger for the horsehoof ring to appear in his inventory is choosing to forgive him after the event in firelink, once you return and he is now squatting, it will be in his inventory.

                                            I couldn't find the ring until I found Greirat. Once I did, I talked to Patches and he noticed I had met him. I was then able to buy the ring, whereas I was unable to prior to talking to him.

                                              It appears that if you open the Green Door (graveyard) shortcut in Cathedral having come up the elevator, talk to Siegward, and return to the elevator by a method other than the Green Door shortcut, Patches will not activate. This forces you to follow up with the Tower scene to unlock him as a salesman. In this event, I do not have the ability to buy this ring! I have yet to clear Smouldering Lake, and have not taken the bridge to Irithyll. Everything else has been completed.

                                                Greirat does not have to die for this ring to be sold. In my current gamestat greirat has returned from Irithyll, saved by Siegward. Patches has the ring for sale regardless of this outcome.

                                                  To make him sell the ring you need to have patches squatting down in firelink shrine. for me this was after he locked me in the tower, then went back to him and exhausted all dialog, then i sat at the bonfire and warped to firelink again to reload the area. this made him squat down and sell that ring to me.

                                                    Watched a video where patches wasn't selling the ring, however if still dropped from him. But only after they went to the tower retrieved the fire keeper soul and extinguished his dialog at the door. Not sure if prevalent information, but maybe its something.

                                                      The ring will not drop if he is not selling it, keep this noted. I killed him because he wasn't selling it and got nothing but ashes in return.Ashes didn't grant the items availability to sell either

                                                        After recruiting him, the ring did not appear in the shop until I had talked to him and exhausted all dialogue. So try that if it's not there.

                                                              It allows you to guard break some large shielded enemies and critical them. Tested on some knights in Lorthric castle. Worked on the miracle mace knight and red eyed knight, didn't work without the ring.
