Skull Ring

One of Courland's transposed wonders. Derived from the soul of a Soulfeeder.

Easier to be detected by enemies.

The Soulfeeder was a beast that insatiably absorbed souls to feed its own power. Even after its accursed corpse was burned, it is said that the pungent stench of souls left the air permanently stained."

 Skull Ring is a Ring in Dark Souls 3



Skull Ring Effect

  • Easier to be detected by enemies and changes enemy targeting priority.



Where to Find Skull Ring




  • The wearer of this ring will draw the enemy's focus away from other players, while playing in a group, either online or with npc summons.
  • Can for example be used strategically in a boss fight: a player with the ring can hide behind a greatshield and keep the boss occupied so the phantoms are free to hack away.
  • This ring is very useful to help squishy npcs live through a bossfight.
  • (No obvious effect with normal enemy detection and aggro range)
  • Same effect as the Moaning Shield and the Atonement miracle.

      this doesn't seem to work. I was trying to kill dancer with phantoms and she didn't focus on me more than without the ring

        So, I'm thinking of building a tank character to Co-Op with, and this ring seems like it's destined for one of my fingers. I'm thinking Estus Ring for healing (due to lower Flask count) and Chloranthy Ring for stamina regen (since Grass Crest is out of the question), but the last one eludes me. Life Ring for higher total HP, Sun Princess Ring for the Sanctus healing, or something like Prisoner's Chain for the mixed stat buffs?

        Obviously, I'm planning on going high Vigour, Vitality, and Endurance, with points in Faith for potential healing/buff miracles and Strength for a decent Greatshield. The Lothric Knight set seems solid for low-mid level, but pushing higher Vitality would let me go Cathedral, Catarina, or Havel's.

          everyone is talking about ludleth being a soulfeeder but to me it more sounds like it's a reference to one of the previous player characters. Like think about it, we go all through every game, slurping up all the souls we can get in order to get stronger and fulfill our duty, right and it's cannon that all of our previous characters (the chosen undead and the cursed one from DS2) ended up continuing the age of fire by burning ourselves in the kilns... but even moreso, it would make sense that once we reached a certain point of strength, we would have our own soul and theoretically that soul could be transposed.

          Also you could reach a bit further and say that our soul transposed into a ring that draws enemy ire because thats all we experienced as we were trying to fulfill our duty, we went through area after area, boss after boss and literally everything tried to kill us. So it would makes sense that we would turn into a ring that embodied that.

              In Pve only boss fight it actually works is L&L Twins. Without the ring NPC dies stage one, with the ring in the middle of second stage. On rare occasion NPC might even live through whole fight if you lucky.

                It is ludleth as he dies before your are able to gain the ring. Everyone else normally leaves ashes as a merchant or something representing what they do or who they are. Then what they drop tells you about them or their life. Why do you think he was exiled for in the first place and then able to be lord of cinder? Also, his speech of how he will die big even though he is small, Aldrich bloated up after consuming so many. I feel it's a reference to the huge souls he consumes. He can give you something of a boss because he ,like Aldrich, took their essence and power. Thus he can produce it. some times he needs additional souls in order todo so depends on the souls fed to him. He needs these to live longer as he isn't a true heir of cinder. - Sheba

                  I wear this sometimes when I'm summoned as a darkmoon. It's function is to bring agro to you, so the sad sorry little invader who needs to hide behind enemies thinks he should go for you, creates perfect opening for the host to lay into him. Aside from that Carthus Bloodstone Ring and Ring of Steel Protection, and just keep Rollin' Rollin' Rollin' and you'll be fine.

                    ofc it is fan service. Whole DS3 is fanservice of all the Souls Borne games. Thankfully the DLCs gave it some characters and Locations to remember.

                      I used the ring for example against Lorian when summoning Siris. Or against any boss when I'm fighting as a phantom with a host of ember, which isn't "skillful". But I never had the feeling, that it really has an impact. Maybee because I'm playing too defensivly?

                        After Siegward died to Yhorm in NG+6 for the first time in my playthroughs I decided to use the ring in NG+7 in the boss fight. Could't see much difference. Seems as Yhorm is generally very focused on Siegward anyway.

                          It doesnt turn you into red glowing eye demon like in DS2, but this is the guy if you are into that Havel style god-tier tanking.
                          It takes aggro off enemies instantly and forces everything to focus on you. In jolly CO-OP games, your damage dealing friends can slay the everliving***** out of Bosses while you tank their blows.

                            "Same effect as Atonement miracle". Except the Atonement page states that its effect increases enemy aggro range, and this page states that the supposedly same effect does no such thing. I'll try to do some proper testing for this, and hopefully some more people will, too.
