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%
  • +2 Version (NG++): +40%
  • Weight: 0.5



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 playthrough video starting at 1h 49m 29s)
  • (NG+) +1 Version: Found next to the giant crab just below the Crucifixion Woods bonfire in the Road of Sacrifices.
  • (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.




  • 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.

      does the bonus still prevail after you swap off? i.e. i'm buffing a weapon while wearing the ring and then swapping to hornet right after buff, will I still get the effect?

        The +2 versions location is the last kick in the balls for the Ring trophy after doing ng+2 NK and the covenants...

          The only time I wear this ring is when I cast magic shield on my great shield (stability of 80 on a shield with this spell uses no stamina that I have found while blocking regardless of the attack, which is great cuz you don't need to spend the extra FP casting the magic great shield version) for boss battles or difficult NPC invasions and it allows you to turtle up in true DS1 fashion. The survivability this affords you is amazing. Only real issue is of course weapons and attacks that deal elemental damage or status effects but that can easily be countered. I only use parry shields in PvP of course, but I am thinking that casting this on my iron round shield might be worth a go. Although I have never seen anyone use this in PvP before. This is my Boss Killing ring.

            Would this effect how long divine pillars of light lasts? Im thinking maybe if it does then you could bait players to attack while the miracle is active making it likely they will get his which i can then follow up with a wrath the gods for really high damage.

              The lingering dragoncrest ring effects spell duration of spells, not weapon skill buff duration. As far as i know, the ring actually does effect how long YOUR aoe buffs last on others. Obviously it doesn't effect how long others' buffs last, the ring is on YOUR finger.

                In order to extend the spell effect, the ring must be equipped when the spell effect would normally time out. If you equip this ring after casting the spell, it will still extend it. If you unequip it after casting the spell, but before the effect runs out it will do nothing. If you unequip it after the spell's duration has been extended, the effect will remain for the full extension. Basically the game performs a check when the spells duration would normally time out, and if the ring is equipped at that moment it's duration is extended. Not really useful info unless you're running short on ring slots. Personally I like to use priestess ring to cast blessed weapon with 10 faith, then swap to this to extend the duration.

                  So after making a new character and forgetting about this ring until the profaned Capitol I went back and killed the crab and it didnt drop the ring. Any clue why not?

                    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:
                      "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.

                      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?
