Rings are items you can obtain throughout the Demon’s Souls games, both the original PS3 version and the newly-released PS5 title. They provide you with small upgrades or modifiers that can help you get through the game, such as boosting your health and damage output or increasing your defence and attributes.

Our Demon’s Souls Best Rings
Since you can only equip two rings at any given time, it’s important that you work out which rings are best for your build and the area you’re currently playing through. For example, if you’re a mage build, you’ll likely want to utilise the magic-based rings to boost the strength of your sorceries, or you may want to use the rings that boost your defence against certain damage if you’re in an area or facing enemies that specialise in it.
Regardless of what your build is or which level you’re playing, there are several rings that we believe you should try utilising when playing the game. Check out our short list of the Demon’s Souls best rings for all players:
- Sodden Ring: When traversing water-logged areas like the Swamp Of Sorrow
- Rings Of Great and Herculean Strength: To boost your maximum item and equip burdens if carrying too much
- Ring Of Longevity: To boost your maximum health
- Ring Of Avarice: To boost the number of Souls you earn from defeating enemies – great for farming!
- Eternal Warrior’s Ring: To boost your stamina recovery speed, great if you don’t want to use a shield
- Cling Ring: To boost your maximum health in Soul Form, which you’ll be spending a lot of time in
We’ll stress that you frequently change the rings in your possession to apply to your current situation as many of the rings will provide you with a small advantage to help you beat certain troublesome enemies, bosses or areas. We hope our guide to the Demon’s Souls best rings has helped you!
