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.

            Actually, this ring a good choice for PvP-arena or duels. When you think what's better: Wolf ring or Havel's Ring, you already know answer: Havel's better, but... When u wear Havel's Ring and get heavier armor, u get more defence and with heavier armor u SHOULD to wear Havel's ring everytime. And wolf ring u can just swap for more suitable ring (if u fight against light weapon, like straight swords or curved swords and u know you have enough poise to trade with them without Wolf ring), that's a very good option. Also, if u know poise breakpoints of your weapon and weapon of your opponent, u can just surprise him with extra poise points and win the trade. This ring definetly not necessary for "mail ring slot", but just keep it in your inventory for duels.

              The only time you should use this is with very specific weapon, armor, and weight breakpoints. Not useless, but close.

                *the placeholder ring, this ring does absolutely nothing, it depicts a wolf for some reason, and looks very old, it's said to boost this thing called POISE, but poise no one knows what poise is, because it seemingly doesn't exist

                  No matter how you defend poise in this game, it s utter trash caused by bloodborne s influence and braindead fanboys who spams their straight swords the whole day. This mechanic and absorption stats that stacks diminishingly totally ruined heavy knight builds and the npc who are actual heavy knights are either buffed with artifficial difficulty or given ds1 poise just for being 0,30 cm taller.

                      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.
