Obscuring Ring

Ring bestowed upon the Fingers of Rosaria, invaders who seek tongues for their goddess.


Hides the presence of the wearer when far away.


It is said that Rosaria, the mother of rebirth, was robbed of her tongue by her firstborn, and has been waiting for their return ever since.

 Obscuring Ring is a Ring in Dark Souls 3.


Obscuring Ring Effect

  • Makes the wearer invisible to enemy players at long distance.
  • Weight: 0.9


Where to Find Obscuring Ring

  • Rank 1 reward: Rosaria's Fingers (You MUST offer 10 Pale Tongues to reach rank 1)  



  • Makes the wearer completely invisible at range, lifebar included, to all enemy players and phantoms. The effect starts at about 10 meters away, which is slightly shorter than the maximum lock-on distance. Works as well when you are the host of a world being invaded.
  • Tears of Denial and other visual effects, like Poison or a knife stuck in your character, will give away the wearer's position.
  • Unlike Ring of Fog from Dark Souls and Thief's Ring from Demon's Souls, which reduced the range of detection for NPC enemies, the Obscuring Ring only works on human players.

      wish they hadnt nerfed it quite so hard, somewhere in between now and pre-nerf would have been perfect because now if they chase you you cannot get away and reposition unless you do some shenanigans or they are braindead.

        The single most important ring to any invader. The same people who ***** about how group invasions are impossible are also the same people who don't understand the point of a ring that allows you to utilize guerrilla tactics rather than sprinting into a group and wondering why you got your ass handed to you.

          This ring should be exclusive only to Rosaria's Fingers and only work when you have the badge equipped. Make it worth equipping the Rosaria's badge.

            I guess the ring just doesn't work sometimes because I just got sniped by a phantom while I was wearing it.

              I trolled 4 aldrich faithfuls today in anor londo with obscuring ring + slumbering dragon crest ring for well over 30 minutes. They could not find me at all and I just kept firing my bow at them chipping away their health + seed of giants. Basically they gave up and went home.

                If you are a Blade of the Darkmoon or a Blue Sentinel; GET THIS. Grind it from the Darkwraiths at Abyss Watchers bonfire, or invade for it, but get this ring.

                Invaders (like the Dipsticks they are) never see you coming when you've got their srubby tricks up your sleeve ;)

                  After having earned the Obscuring Ring once in NG, I attempted to earn a second copy in NG+; however, upon delivering to Rosaria the required 10 Pale Tongues, I did NOT receive a second Obscuring Ring. Is it impossible to earn more than one Obscuring Ring per character? I mean, legitimately--not through trade with other players. Thanks!

                    Current range is if you are at the Grand Archives bonfire you wouldn't see someone at the base of the staircase straight ahead. If they step OFF the staircase onto the floor, they become visible just then.

                    Not tested on my side, but told that Vordt's GH's particle effect DOES disappear w/this ring. However, it seems to lag 1-2 seconds, like the particles already in the air have to dissipate as they normally would.

                      Yeah, primarily useful for those who don't buff, but otherwise the cheapest yet most amazing ring I've ever seen, because it allows hit and run tactics and if the host continually heals you can hide and regen with blessed items. Unfortunately it can kind of be abused, it's good not many people use it because if a host did I have no idea how you'd find them and with one person it isn't very nice as I've already had people get so distracted they get killed by mobs, and that's really unfair but...well, in some cases it's absolutely warranted. Ok, I'm sorry, but I'm too proud of this story.

                      Once upon a time there was a gank squad of 3 people who I wound up invading, alone. They were sitting up where Ledo invades near the ringed city street bonfire, all cocky and throwing down their "Hey" stones and standing by the edge emoting...I slowly snuck up a bit behind the far one, pulled out a milwood greatbow, and shot them off the ledge. One down. Now the other two are still a bit cocky and trying to draw me into Ledo's room so they could gang up on me. I waited around for a bit, occasionally taking pot shots when they'd pop out to try to taunt me, and eventually one separated and came down the path a bit and I hacked him up with my Exile's greatsword. 2 down. The last guy isn't quite so cocky anymore and I take off my obscuring ring, replace it with a silvercat. I wasn't sure if I'd use it, but the host had no problem chugging estus (I didn't use a single one throughout), and I was unembered, so after beating on him and having him keep healing finally we eventually fell over the ledge. Because I had the ring I took nothing, he took most his health. He heals full, we fall to the ground. We both swing, both hit, he dies. I feel like I'm predator. Not so cocky now, eh?

                        Yes, Tears of Denial are visible even when using the Obscuring Ring AND at the appropriate distance to be hidden.

                          Any visible particle effect on your character is visible from a distance, as far as I know. Including Tears of Denial. But I imagine a list may need to be made after testing.

                            Could anyone care to confirm if the obscuring ring makes you invisible for a second after coming within distance of the enemy? It seems to be that way for me i sneak up on so many people in such. A wide open space

                              If you don't want to open the link...
                              What you CAN'T see when someone is wearing the Obscuring Ring

                              All weapon buffs, this includes buffs from Pine Resins such as Gold Pine Resin, Carthus Rouge etc. You also can't see spell weapon buffs such as Lightning Blade (I never tested Darkmoon Blade, Crystal Magic Weapon but I assume they are the same too.)

                              Profaned Greatsword (Flame buff from the Weapon Art is hidden, but not the animation)

                              Immolation Tinder (You can't see this weapons fire effect it has, and you can not see the light it produces on the walls/ground)

                              I want to clarify on this part because someone misunderstood this information, although weapon buffs can't be seen from a far distance (when the Obscuring Ring's effect is working making you invisible) the weapon buff will be seen when the Obscuring Ring's effect is not working (you are within lock-on range and the enemy can see you.) So if you have a Darkmoon Blade buff on your weapon, everyone can see it close range.


                              Important thing to note

                              People were saying that wearing the Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring will hide the aura/spells, this appears to be incorrect. I tested the following things; Green Blossum, all Bug Pellets, Crystal Soul Mass, Storm Curved Sword weapon art and drawing Great Arrows. All these things could still be seen while wearing the Obscuring Ring and the Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring. This could be different for other spells/consumables etc. but I assume it is not any different.

                              UPDATE - Tears of Denial is hidden by using the Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring

                                "The wearer's position can be given away if they have an arrow drawn back, have an arrow or knife stuck into them, or are under the influence of a negative status effect that has a visual, such as poison."

                                Not entirely true. Your position will be given away when you are under ANY status effect/buff that has a visual effect, also when they are positive.
