Lingering Dragoncrest Ring

A special ring given to those who are deemed fit to undertake the journey of discovery in Vinheim, home of sorcery.

Extends length of spell effect.

Apropos to the Dragon School, the seal depicts an everlasting dragon. A lingering dragon symbolizes the true nature of the consummate sorcerer.

 Lingering Dragoncrest Ring is a Ring in Dark Souls 3.


Lingering Dragoncrest Ring Effect

  • Extends length of spell effect by 30%
  • +1 Version (NG+): +35%

Where to Find Lingering Dragoncrest Ring

  • Dropped by Giant Crab in Farron Keep: Spawn at the Keep Ruins bonfire and head down the ramp. The crab is to the left near the white tree. video location (fextralife video starting at 1h 49m 29s) Lingering Dragoncrest Ring Location
  • (NG+) +1 Version: Found next to the giant crab just below the Crucifixion Woods bonfire in the Road of Sacrifices. () (video location)
  • (NG++) +2 Version: It's part way up the tower where the three Ascended Winged Knights wait in ambush in Lothric Castle. Run up the staircase, but don't go up the ladder. Instead run around to the front of the tower and the ring is in the alcove. () (video location)




  • Works with MiraclesSorceriesPyromancies.
  • Extends only length of the effects, that are placed on you. For example, if you are wearing this ring, and someone casts Sacred Oath nearby, he will have it only for 60 seconds, while character with this ring will have the same buff for a maximum of 84 seconds with the +2 version. The same principle works with Vow of Silence.
  • Extends the duration even when the ring is equipped after the spell is cast.
  • Strangely increases the duration time of Stone Flesh despite not working on any other Weapon Art.
  • Does not increase the total healed from Bountiful Light.

      So no one has figured out why this seems to add an extra lingering pool of lava with Great Chaos Fire Orb? You can sometimes get two ticks out of it, if I remember correctly.

        Lingering Dragon Crest Ring page:

        Vow of Silence page:
        "Does not appear to be affected by the Lingering Dragon Crest Ring."

        I am confused

          Do someone knows if u can wear the 3 versions of the ring and still apllies the total sum of the effect. I mean: If u wear the 3 version of the ring 40+35+30) 105% It should make a x2 on a sword buff right?

            Tested Lingering Dragoncrest Ring +1 with Eleonora. This is with respect to Feast Bell Weapon Art which is a bit like a Miracle Buff similar to the Prayer of Favor on Shira's Filianore Sacred Chime. The Results are Unfortunate.
            The results were 25 seconds with it on, and 25 seconds of the lacerating and health stealing effect with the ring off. It does not buff your self nor other people of the effect duration. This is similar in Negative Result to the Filianore Chime, which is also unaffected by the Lingering Dragoncrest Ring. These weapon buffs would have been greater if they could be Enhanced with Cleric and Wizard Rings in Duration and Health Restored, but this is also true of the Miracle Spells themselves.

              Under Notes, it reads, "Extends only length of the effects, that are placed on you. For example, if you are wearing this ring, and someone casts Sacred Oath nearby, he will have it only for 60 seconds, while character with this ring will have the same buff for a maximum of 84 seconds with the +2 version. The same principle works with Vow of Silence." ... But does this mean that if I were to fight Aldrich and cast Vow of Silence while wearing the Lingering Dragoncrest Ring, then Aldrich would only suffer the miracle's effects for the standard 15 seconds and I roughly 20 seconds? In other words, does the loop hole that applies to other players also apply to bosses and enemy AI?

                I've been testing the Lingering Dragoncrest Ring +2 with heal regen miracles, and they heal the same amount per second unlike what this page would imply. With it equipped, bountiful light still heals 7 HP per second even tho it says it will slow down health regen to compensate for the longer time. Even blessed weapon with 60 faith still heals 4 hp a second with the ring equipped but the buff lasts much longer.

                  The +2 version of this ring is in the Grand Archives, you'll have to kill Dragonslayer Armour (and the other 3 lords) to get it.

                    To anybody who is asking, I am in NG(+4) and just got all three rings; +0, +1, and +2 version; all in the same NG(+4). I did get them in order from least to greatest, but it is possible to just get all of them in NG++ or higher in just one go.

                      Is there a +3 version in the new DLC? They added the useless Wolf Ring +3, so why not a useful Lingering Dragoncrest Ring +3?

                          I have found out that you do not need to have the ring equipped when actually casting a spell!A spell's duration is increased/dilated from the point when your equip the ring and on wards (so if you equip it late you won't get much benefit).You can therefore use a ring like the deep ring or the priestess ring to meet requirements, for example, and quickly swap to the lingering ring during the cast animation for virtually the same effect as having the lingering ring from the start.I don"t have an account for the wiki but if someone able is willing to add this to the notes i think i could be useful to players

                              Does this increase the length of consumable buffs as well? E.g Carthus Rouge and Green Blossoms

                                Please replace "length of spell effect" with "duration: in order to be both more concise and clear; length of spell effect, before having read the description, made me assume it boosted the length of the actual spell itself. Say, Soul Greatsword would be 40% longer.

                                  Does anyone know if removing the ring after a buff is applied negates the duration bonus? One would think so, but confirmation would be nice.

                                    Does this work with weapon arts such as the lightning coating for the Dragonslayer Swordspear?
