Ring of Sacrifice

This mystical ring was created in a sacrificial rite of Velka, the Goddess of Sin.

Its wearer will lose nothing upon death, but the ring itself breaks.

A sacrifice is only worth as much as the life it spares.

Ring of Sacrifice is a Ring in Dark Souls 3.


Ring of Sacrifice Effect

  • Prevents soul loss upon death.
  • Prevents becoming Hollow upon death, even at 15 hollowing or more.
    • Does not prevent Hollowing buildup upon death.
  • Does not stop you from losing your Ember upon death.
  • Will not take any effect from death by Curse.
  • When dying with ring equipped, the ring will disappear from the player's inventory.
    • Dying as a phantom will break this ring. Unequip upon summon.



Where to Find Ring of Sacrifice




  • Not only does the ring save your souls but it will also save your bloodstains. For example if you died without ring on you would drop all souls at spot A. Then you equip ring of sacrifice but then die at spot B before making it to spot A. Your bloodstain would still be at spot A (with all you previouse souls) rather than being at spot B
  • Unlike Dark Souls II, the ring completely breaks upon death, there is no way to repair it, just like in the original Dark Souls.
  • Also unlike the previous versions of Dark Souls, this ring WILL break when you are being summoned and die in another players world. It is unknown at this time if this is an oversight on From Softwares part, or if it has some deeper meaning which has yet to be found.Till that time it is advised to remove it before being summoned, as you will needlessly lose it if you perish in the hosts world.

      Unless you somehow have tons of souls to retrieve from a place you know you won't be able to use a homeward bone from, this is pointless and should be replaced by a ring that ACTUALLY helps you survive and not lose your souls in the first place.

        i dont understand why so many people are complaining, early on in your playthrough these are just free 2k souls, i always instantly sell them when i find them and im happy to do so

        • Completely pointless to me if we can't repair it anymore.... that's what made the damn thing so valuable, it was like a bank you had to invest in to keep a float.

          Great for people just trying to speed run through and Not spend any souls.

          Now what's the point? When it breaks, it's gone and now there limited...

            if it secured my embered state upon death this ring would be very useful. why is this ring so limited in every way? even titanite slabs are 15 and these rings are only 8. you can tell it is poorly designed when all of us probably abused it in DS2 and most of never used it in 3

              Unlike DS2's Ring of Soul Protection, when you die, the ring is destroyed and cannot be repaired. I die for exploring and finding ways to destroy all monsters along the way.

                I use this in a very specific type of playthrough/character where if you fail to grab your bloodstain/souls before dying again, then the playthrough/character is forever lost UNLESS you equip this ring to save the bloodstain/souls.

                  I think the Wiki is missing one tidbit of info so I did some testing.

                  Okay; if we wear the ring and Die, our souls stay in our inventory. But if first we lose some souls, then don the ring, then die before recovering those souls, we keep our souls and we ALSO don't lose the green pickup that represents our previous souls.

                  To clarify with a sequence:
                  >Be Me
                  >SL 19
                  >Running dick first through the minefield that is Ashes of Ariendel DLC because I hate being invaded there and just want to show up at an appropriate level to gank Friede with 5 phantoms.
                  >Try to run and grab Quakestone Hammer from Millwood Knight Guardian.
                  >"Killed 'Em in One-Hit" - Millwood Knight
                  >Lost 30,000 something souls since I haven't leveled up since Vordt.
                  >Run back up hill with Ring of Sacrifice to try to recover souls.
                  >Nothing left to lose Go back
                  >Souls Still There
                  >Get too Excited to run and pick them up again
                  >"Killed 'Em in One-Hit" - Millwood Knight

                    It's fun to gift this to people in the arena, followed by a point down, and a parry to one-shot riposte. :)

                      Equipped the ring before Dragonslayer boss fight just in case and defeated the boss in first try without dying. When returning to Firelink Shrine message appeared that Ring has been shattered due to sacrifice. Don't understand the mechanics...

                        Do I have to collect all Rings of Sacrifice to get "the master of rings" achievement or a single copy is enough ?

                        • Anonymous

                          If you died again and again you would need this ring for a reason because you could f***k yourself and be stuck at a pow soul level if you kept dying before you got your souls back because you could grind enemies till they wouldn't spawn anymore it makes sense to not repair it in this one I mean really

                            Was in Demon Ruins going to see how phantom Tsorig did against actual Tsorig after he kick my keister. When i died to the basalisk swarm though the ring didn't break losing my +200,000 souls in the process.

                              As cheesy as DS2's variant was, It made end game grinding a cakewalk rather than a grueling grindfest that pretty much spelled dying needlessly and losing out on all that effort. I really hope they consider adding at least one of these rings; Ring of Life or Soul protection.

                                I just went to retrieve lost souls in farron keep. at the place were the swamp is very deep and there's 4 or 5 frogs coming at you. I got cursed, died and then my previous souls were gone, and the ring didn't break. I guess it only works when it's not a curse that kills you? -.-

                                  Seriously? I just learned the hard way that this thing breaks when you die as a summoned phantom. That has to be a glitch right? That's a ***** move, even by From standards.

                                    Can this ring be repaired or is it utterly destroyed? Haven't seen any evidence that rings include durability stats.
