Our deeds will come back to us in some form or another, both good and bad"


  • Explodes after taking damage, following a brief audio cue. Explosion AOE is centered around the wearer.
    • Deals close to 300 damage to targets with low defense.
    • Has a 10-30% of causing an explosion once it reaches the damage threshold. The probability degrades rapidly as the durability decreases.
    • Each explosion lowers the durability by 10, not including the damage done to activate.
    • Will explode multiple times before actually breaking. Multiple activations can stack through receiving repeated instances of durability loss, such as the fire pits in the rotten boss room.
  • Durability: 75
  • Weight: 3.0


  • Shaded Woods: From the Ruined Fork Road bonfire, enter the fogged forest, hug the right wall until you reach the chest containing the ring. Be wary of the Shades guarding it.


  • Repair Cost: 5250 souls
  • The delay between the explosion and the activation is significant, lowering overall usefulness in PVP.
