Ring of Blades Locations
- Obtained by defeating the boss Pursuer in Forest of Fallen Giants.
- +1: Obtained by defeating the Pursuer within Iron Keep in the Smelter Demon's room. The Pursuer will spawn after Smelter Demon is defeated, but one must rest at a bonfire/re-enter the area first. (The Pursuer in the Forest of Fallen Giantsdoes NOT have to be defeated.) (You will also not obtain the Ring if he dies while you get summoned.)
- +2: Obtained by defeating the two mini boss Pursuers in Drangleic Castle throne room on NG+. (Can be done via bonfire ascetic at King's Gate bonfire)
- The +2 variant will drop like a regular item. This means that if the player dies before picking the ring up, the item will despawn and be unavailable until the next NG cycle (or after using a Bonfire Ascetic). This issue can be avoided by ensuring that the Pursuer on the player's right is dispatched before the one on the left; this is because the one on the left will drop the ring.
- Increases ALL physical damage. This includes fists and bows.
- As this ring does not provide a percentage increase in damage, it is most effective with weapons that can attack rapidly, in order to proc the increased damage as often as possible.
- The physical damage bonus provided by this ring is reduced proportionally to the physical damage reduction of the imbuement used for each individual weapon (typically 20%-30%). See the Imbuement section of the Upgrades page for more details.
- At +2, this ring provides normal, raw and mundane infused weapons with +50 AR, bleed and poison infused weapons with innate bleed or poison with +40 AR, elemental infused weapons will receive +25 AR and weapons upgraded with twinkling titianite or petrified dragon bone +35 AR.
