Dark Souls: Remastered Best Rings

Dark Souls: Remastered Best Rings – What You Should Use And How To Find Them

Dark Souls: Remastered is a challenging game, regardless of your level and skill. Thankfully, the game has equipable rings that boost your damage, defence and more that can be found while exploring the game’s various areas, purchased from merchants or dropped by NPCs and enemies. Since you can only equip two at a time, working out which rings are best can be difficult, which is why we’ve decided to list the Dark Souls: Remastered best rings right here.

What Are The Best Rings In Dark Souls?

There are around 40 total rings in Dark Souls and its remaster, which includes all DLC. You can only equip two at a time and although the majority of the rings can be swapped at any time, it can be difficult to work out which are best for you to use. Generally speaking, the best rings are dependent on the area you’re exploring, the enemies you’re facing, the Dark Souls: Remastered boss you’re fighting, and your build.

We’ve found that the Dark Souls: Remastered best rings are as follows:

  • Tiny Being’s Ring to boost maximum HP
  • Cloranthy Ring to boost stamina regeneration
  • Bellowing Dragoncrest Ring to boost magic damage
  • Dusk Crown Ring to increase sorcery castings
  • White and Darkmoon Seance Rings to increase attunement slots
  • Ring Of The Sun’s Firstborn to increase miracle power
  • Hornet Ring to increase the power of critical attacks
  • Ring Of Favour And Protection to increase HP, stamina and maximum equip load

There are also several rings which are worth using in certain situations. For example, the Stoneplate and Bite rings are great if you’re facing enemies or are in an area that deals certain damage.

It’s also worth utilising the Ring Of Sacrifice if you’re carrying lots of runes and are near-death, using the Covetous Silver Serpent ring to collect more Souls, using the Orange Charred Ring when exploring the fiery areas in late-game, and using the Covenant Of Artorias ring to enter The Abyss and face one of the game’s mandatory bosses.
