Illusory Ring of a Conqueror is a special ring in Dark Souls 2.
A ring of blue stone.
The stone is misshaped, however imperceptibly. renders certain equipment invisible.
Do not judge your foes by their appearance. He who approaches without a sword carries two behind his back.


  • Makes left hand weapon invisible.
  • Durability: 130/130
  • Weight: 0.2


  • Clear game without dying. This includes dying while wearing Rings of Life Protection, or while a phantom in another player's world.
  • After clearing the game without dying, you should obtain the ring after the credits.
  • DO NOT SKIP THE CREDITS. Many players have cleared the game with the requirements but have not obtained the rings. It is not yet confirmed, but it seems likely that skipping the credits may actually stop you from getting the rings. To be safe, watch the whole credits after finishing the game.


  • A good strategy to achieve this is to complete it in a NG+ or higher world where your gear is already endgame, preventing death from early bosses that may prove challenging with early game weapons and providing high amounts of Estus and healing items from the previous play through.

      You can get this ring and the other one in a NG+ run through the game so you could have all the spells and stats you want. Also if you choose to get the other one at the same time you would be able to equip all of your spells before you enter NG+ otherwise you wouldn't be able to get them. Phantoms that die in your world don't count against you, dying in pvp does, dying as a phantom does, soul protection ring does, denial doesn't since you don't actually die, curse doesn't affect this as well. Also you could do this offline if you're worried about invaders. I used flame weapon, crystal magic weapon, soul spear, dark orbx1 great fireball x2 flame swath and lingering flame (very useful since you know whats ahead of you, you can drop like 4 of these to kill large enemies with 0 effort) and was able to get both rings done in a NG+ run at once.

        Someone gave this to me in pvp. I could never have made it. That guy gave me a lot of effigies too. There are angels amongst the undead

          What about summoning NPC phantoms?
          If they die while helping you does their death count and stops you from getting the ring?

            Just for the record: You can't gain a second ring with the same character and you can't trade them. So it is impossible to get more than one. But why would you anyway :D

              This is to get in the PS4 Scholar of the First Sin edition if you take advantage of the PS4's cloud save feature. Quit your game before each boss, upload the save to the cloud, and then if you die just download the last save you uploaded (I'd first reccomend turning off automatic cloud save backup, just to prevent the PS4 accidentally overwriting your pre-death cloud save with a post-death one).

              Funnily enough, while doing this I ended up not dying at all to the bosses (I was in NG++ and supremely overpowered). However I'm still glad I cheesed the cloud save feature because a few ill advised jumps in the gutter and Dragon Aerie would have ended my run.

                Just got it. Easy.
                I used a Pike+10 and that thing did literally no damage lol, but I got experience, I played every souls-game and have over 1000 hours in them, so, yeah. Explored everything, killed every boss including all DLC.
                NG is really not a challenge, Ng7+ would be more fun tbh
                (Or just getting the ring for making every flame on the map in Majula blue, because that is 100x more challenging in my opinion. Not even once arsed myself to do that.)

                    It isn´t that hard. You don´t have to explore whole game and kill all bosses, just get to Nashandra as fast as possible, kill her and end the game.

                    You need 1 mil. soul memory to enter the Drangleic castle. Then you need king´s ring from Undead crypt, after go meet the ancient dragon, after kill Throne Watcher and the second guy (so you don´t have to fight them with Nashandra at once). Return back, kill Giant boss and then again return to kill Nashandra. Easy as that.

                    That´s how I made it, my third attempt. Also I don´t recommend going down in the Saint Grave, Gutter and Black Gulch. The few souls you may earn there aren´t worth the really easy death. Most likely from fall. Good luck
