Pontiff's Left Eye

Bewitched ring that Pontiff Sulyvahn bestowed upon his knights.

Recovers HP with successive attacks.

Knights who peer into the black orb are lured into battles of death, transformed into frenzied beasts. No wonder the Pontiff only provides these rings to those dispatched to foreign lands.

 Pontiff's Left Eye is a Ring in Dark Souls 3.  



Pontiff's Left Eye Effect

  • Recovers 30 HP with successive attacks
  • Weight: 0.9
  • Attacking 2 or more enemies when the effect triggers has a chance to proc a overheal, healing the player massively.
    • This is speculated to be a coding oversight, or a bug, that never got fixed. 

Where to Find Pontiff's Left Eye



  • Will occasionally fully restore HP all at once if you land enough hits in a short timeframe, such as using a fast weapon against a crowd of enemies
  • Heals 30 HP each healing tick.
  • Below is a table listing the amount of hits it takes for a weapon to proc the healing effect in as short as window as possible. Testing notes are below it.

 The information in this table requieres further testing. So far, the only 100% accurate data are One Handed Light attacks.

Weapon Class One Handed Light Two Handed Light One Handed Heavy Two Handed Heavy
Fist 8 - 6 -
Fist/Claw Weapons 8 8 6 -
Dagger 8 8 6 6
Straight Sword 6 6 6 6
Curved Sword 6 6 5 5
Thrusting Swords 6 6 6 6
Axes 6 6 6 6
Hammer 6 8 10 12
Katanas 6 6 6 6
Spear & Pikes 6 6 6 6
Halberd 5 5 5 6
Reapers 5 5 5 5
Whips 5 5 5 5
Greatswords 6 6 6 6
Curved Greatswords 3 or 4 (depends on weapon) 3 3 3
Greataxes 4 4 Too Slow Too Slow
Great Hammer 4 4 Too Slow Too Slow
Ultra Greatsword 4 4 Too Slow Too Slow


Testing Notes:

  • Weapon Arts count towards the combo counter.
  • Charged attacks count for more points on the combo counter.
  • Healing effect may proc before actual hit connects from input.
  • Invaders may see healing effect before healing effect actually occurs, or when it never occurs in the first place.
  • Weapons with vastly different movesets from their standard may have a bit different results from their weapon class. For example, the weapon "Halberd" has a partial spear moveset, and has different results from the rest of the Halberd weapon class for the most part.
  • Hits that land just after the enemy dies counts towards the combo counter (tested with Sellsword Twinblades, two handed: two light attacks while target is alive, the third one while the target is dead, completing the combo and healing the player)


Story & Lore

  • The name Sulyvahn means "little dark eye" or "dark-eyed" in Irish.
  • Cut content suggests that Sulyvahn's character was to appear in The Untended Graves.

      Kinda only useful at lower levels in early NG if you're using a dagger, straight sword or the sellsword tb and/or don't have better ring options. Other weapons are too slow to make it very useful and you get better rings not much later in the game. Even just using a life ring is equal to 2 or 3 proccs if your vigor is halfway decent

        Step 1: Equip Ring
        Step 2: Attune Ironflesh and cast it near a group of enemies
        Step 3: Equip Brigand Twindaggers, Slab that a$$
        Step 4: Quickstep to enemies
        Step 5: No Lock-on & L1,L1,L1,L1,L1,L1,L1,L1,L1
        Step 6: PROFIT

          The attacks required need to be reduced by half and the time required need to be doubled. As for the healing, make it 50.

            It would be nice to have a table for how many hits for each weapon needs to proc, period. No need for doing it really fast.

              I get that this ring can be gotten as early as Undead Settlement, but c'mon man! This is a boss ring. 30 HP gets less and less value the more HP you have. Maybe if it was a fixed percentage or a flat amount like 100 - 150 HP would be better. Especially once you get to mid game.

                Trash. Just use Life Ring +3. At 40 Vigor it gives you more than 120 hp, equivalent to proccing Pontiff's LE 4 times which the average fight isnt even long enough to do so let alone being able to maintain the necessary attack chains to even make this ring useful.

                  this ring is great. only need to proc it 50 times to heal to full. much better than if I needed to proc it a million times, or 2 trillion times. might even need nerfed.

                    hey guys all the tables here are outdated asf, i'd recommend you to watch limit breaker's video on this ring (can't put direct link here) but look up "The Wolf Sword vs The Pontiff's Left Eye... ᵃ ᵘˢᵉˡᵉˢˢˡʸ ᶜᵒᵐᵖˡᶦᶜᵃᵗᵉᵈ ᵍᵘᶦᵈᵉ" on youtube. tl;dr all weapons need a LOT less attacks, biggest changes going on heavier weapons classes (great hammer 1hr1 12 -> 4, great axe 1hr1 10 -> 4, etc) can someone update the table please?

                      Doing L1, L1, L1 with the brigand twindaggers is enough to trigger the healing, makes the twindaggers very good for large groups of enemies .

                        Just watched limit breaker s vid about op healing with this and tried to pull it off with utra greatsword guts on 3 harald knights. You have to stun them first with fully charged r2 and then get the two hits of the weapon art. Boy, pulling that trick off was so badass (i recommend deep protection or power within to regen stamima)
