Where to Find Wolf Ring



  • Poise gained is affected by current poise. Already Poise heavy armors will result in diminishing returns.



  1. Unlike its DS1 counterpart, this version of the ring does not give you an aura. Because of that and the fact that it has no apparent effect on the wearer, you cannot tell when someone is using this ring online.
  2. This is the only Artorias related equipment to actually refer him by said name, not "wolf knight" or "abysswalker" 
  3. This is the only ring relating to the 4 knights of Gwyn that has +1, +2, and +3 variants 
  4. An article about Artorias, The Abyss Watchers and Wolf's Blood exists here.

        So, through thorough testing with different VIT levels, it seems that wearing Havel's Ring and better poise armor leaves you with more defensive stats (since it's better armor) and anywhere from 0-2 less poise if not slightly more (tested with +3 versions). Now, if you're going to maximum poise - that is, full havel's - then due to diminishing returns on poise, you're only going to get 4.48 extra poise instead of the advertised 9. In conclusion: This thing is worthless, I won't apologize for hurting your feelings, stop defending it.

          Ah, the old wolf ring, darkmoon blade, warmth and great lightning spear battle, the real final boss of Dark Souls 3. Don't go hollow trying to get this one lads, after all the only people who will know you have it are you and the weirdo who decides to stalk you achievement profile.

              Poise.........Is...........Turned..........Off............In.........This.....Game. So this ring is a joke. Anyone pretending this ring has an effect, is a noob who doesn't do research. The game has literally been HACKED, to turn on Poise, and played offline to see the affect. Dark Souls 3, has no poise. If you disagree, you're wrong.

                For all the people who think its useless for whatever reason: its not. Example? I wore Ringed knight set and used Ringed Knight Paired GS on Sould of cinder, without wolf ring I was stopped mid-animation and didn't even manage to hit the boss. However with Wolf Ring +3 equipped I was able to perform attack animation and it does huge difference. Of course it doesn't make difference for every creatures attacks, but it certainly might be useful.

                  Yes, you will get a miniscule, almost invisible increase in hyperarmor with the +3 version, but you could also just equip the Havel's Ring +3 and some higher poise armor to also get better resistances with less diminishing poise returns. This really only has a use if you have garbage VIT, making the +19% equip load from Havel's equal 2 pounds or something.

                    Love seeing all the comments saying “poise means nothing in ds3”. Until you meet a poise tank that out-trades you because they just won’t stagger

                        Two ways to get the swordgrasses for the ring:

                        1) stay at lvl 20ish. Level vigor and stamina and str enough to use a raw great club/ frozen great club two handed (19 str I think). Then get summoned until you earn 30 before you level up higher.

                        2) go to the fortress bonfire with the three ghrus in NG but after you beat the game (killing them by then will super easy). Left hand the crystal sage rapier, wear the symbol of avarice and the gold serpent ring (+3 if you beat the ringed city). Now use a gold coin and pull your strongest attack. I used the black knight sword two handed r1s and got 4 runs before the effect ran out. By run 10 I had the two swordgrasses I needed to get covenant lvl 2 (all I wanted was the curved sword).

                          In Dark Souls 1, Artorias has a +40 poise boost with this ring.
                          In Dark Souls 3, Artorias has a +3.36 poise boost with this ring.

                          Damn is this ring useless.
