the-ringed-city-dark-souls-3The Ringed City DLC is the second and final DLC for Dark Souls 3. It was announced on January 23rd, 2017 by Bandai Namco and released on March 28th, 2017. It is recommended by the developers for players that have cleared Lothric Castle.


The Ringed City DLC Information

Explore a brand new convoluted region, inhabited by new enemies, mysteries and characters. Fight your fight through The Ringed City with new armor, weapons and magic!

Fear not the dark, ashen one. Journey to the world’s end to search for the Ringed City and encounter new lands, new bosses, new enemies with new armor, magic and items. Experience the epic final chapter of a dark world that could only be created by the mind of Hidetaka Miyazaki. This new adventure has players chasing after the Slave Knight Gael to the literal end of the world as he searches for the Dark Soul of Humanity.

At the close of the Age of Fire, as the world ends and all lands converge upon themselves, a lone adventurer descends into the madness of the earth and uncovers the secrets of the past. As players make their way to the fabled Ringed City they will encounter ancient beasts, a new cast of characters teetering on the edge of insanity, new armor, weapons, magic, and at the bottom of it all, a long lost city filled with new horrors for players to overcome.


How to Access the DLC

  • The Ringed City DLC is accessed by traveling to Kiln of the First Flame, and finding a new bonfire before Soul of Cinder that transports you to the DLC location. There is also a bonfire you can find in the Painted World of Ariandel, in the chapel by Sister Friede. For this method to work be sure you are porting to the Sister Friede bonfire first. If you last saved there and then start the DLC the bonfire will not be there. Simply port to Firelink and port back and it will be there.
  • The area is recommended for SL100+

        About to start this DLC for nth time, with my moonlight sorcerer build. How are sorcery spells vs enemies in this DLC? I know pyromancer struggles against the Demons and Midir.

          Really appreciate all the callbacks to Ds2 in this DLC. If only Fromsoft realized sooner just how great that game was

            Met a friendly invader by the name of Meldcore, showed us the way to the bonfire and then to the bossroom before killing us.
            Thank you Meldcore <3

              It's weird, I remember the Ringed City on my first playthrough, but I don't remember the Demon Prince bossfight nor the areas after the Dreg Heap.
              Well, now that I'm back after a few years, I get to experience this again.

                  Not saying these weapons are pay-to-win, but many of them are quite powerful beyond reason. Only complaint I could really give about this great DLC.

                          Apparently I need a map because I'm not seeing how to get here from the Kiln of First Flame. There is no other bonfire. I'm worried I'll trigger the boss fight if I go look outside and I have a lot of souls i don't want to lose until after I get to the Dreg Heap.
