First Dragon Ring


"A dragon signet ring. Grants its bearer the protection of dragons. Increases HP, stamina, and maximum load, but is easily broken. Raulmond, knight of Drangleic, served the king by guarding the fort until his own demise, and was said to have cherished this ring throughout his life of service."

At the stairs, walk forward slightly and turn left to a path covered with boxes. Break the boxes and jump down to see two chests (the right one is a Mimic). Run further in to encounter another mace giant guarding a door. Get past it, into the door, and the ring is in the chest.

      I don't understand why the first and second ring exists. Why could it not just be called "The dragon's ring" or something. Or maybe let the player wear all 3 rings at once to get big raw boosts. But sacrificing any special bonus brought on by other rings.

        There's a mistake on this page. Instead of listing the location of the first dragon ring, it has the info from the 1st part of the notes instead.

          Dragon Aerie is actually hard to get to... Dark Souls 2: Lets make this game harder for them by adding hot sorceresses and give them autolocking magic missles, and then lets give them Archdrakes that are faster than you in water! Me when in Shrine Of Amana: Commit Tom Clancy's HAWX main. Me when facing the Archdrakes: ***** This***** I'm Dead.
