      The +3 at higher soul levels in PvP can really make a difference. Like 50+ vigor this ring can act as a tears of D at times with 10% health bonus. I usually have the same setup always. +3 life, + 3 chlor, +3 havel, +3 RoF. I'll sometimes switch the life ring for the hornet, or estus ring.

        On xbox. If anyone has an extra +3 or this ring I can trade for whatever. I have all other +3 rings to trade, I have an extra slab or any weapon you want in the game upgraded to whatever level you would like.

          At pontiff arena, this pretty much means an extra hit from dagger/rapier players, but not much else. A bigger health bar is always nice though

            If anyone is interested in trading the +3 version of is ring, I am open to whatever you believe to be a fair trade within reason.

              Is this ring actually worthwhile, or is it more or less another placeholder, like the Blue Tearstone Ring? 1000 HP and using this ring only gets you between 70 to 100 more HP, which isn't BAD, but it certainly isn't enough to make some massive difference. Is there something I'm missing about why this ring would be good for 'tank builds'? Does it interact with Embers to bolster HP a lot more or something?

                Oh look, a ring that has you wait until NG++ to get the +3 version instead of giving you it on NG just for buying the DLC.

                  The link for Dreamchaser's Ashes is broken, it has an unnecessary "+" in the beginning of the url which breaks the link

                    Only 2 times. You can get it early in NG++ if you kill the Dancer right away. You literally only have to kill 4 boss in NG++: Iudex Gundyr, Dancer, Oceiros, and finally Champ Gundyr.

                      Estus Ring is the actual Life Ring. With E.R., you can restore 20% more HP from Estus Flask (of course you get bigger heal with upgraded E.F.). L.R. +0 only adds 91 HP at 50 VIGOR (1300 HP * 7%). For real.

                        Gotta love DS3 upgraded ring scalings, +1% for each step. DS2's Life Ring +2 gives 7% while +3 gives 12.5% and +3 gives 15%

                        Same for every other ring. DS2 rings were massive upgrades from previous playthroughs

                          Ok so I was doing Untended Graves in my NG+2 playthrough, then I went to the location described above for NG+3 version of this ring, and it was there. Highly recomended to look up for certain items that "only appear" in subsequent NG's.

                            did a fast google search to see if this was common, didnt try hard to look so maybe it's known, but i got life ring+2 in my first NG, on a ledge in dragon barracks. if i recall correctly (pretty sure was a couple days ago) it was near the snake monster mutator guys in dragon barracks area after the two dragons. i have standard, +1, and +2 in my first new game

                                Potentially could make it very dangerous. 7% increase ontop of their already massive health, buffed with lots of defense.A potentially dangerous ring in the right hands.
