"Ring crafted from the chains of the Embedded. Receive various benefits, but at the cost of increased damage taken. The chains of the Embedded have the power to transform people into slaves of pleasure, setting them on a path of ruin. This ring augments that peculiar quality."

Ring of the Embedded is a Ring in Dark Souls 2 (DKS2). Players can equip up to 4 Rings, but equipping two of the same item is not possible. Some rings have upgraded versions, having a maximum of +3. Some can only be found in NG+. Rings can be repaired at a blacksmith, but not upgraded. Upgraded versions must be acquired throughout the game from corpses, chests, bosses, etc.

  • Wearing this ring also increases your physical damage output similar to the Ring of Blades. (Needs confirmation. Tested against Majula pigs with Whip+0, ring had no effect on damage. It does however effect the scaling of Flynn's Ring )
  • It appears that this ring reduces the damage of Flynn's Ring's damage bonus, but increases damage output of the Ring of Blades

      It's my understanding that the placement of this ring is supposed to help players who have entered the Eleum Loyce unprepared but you are probably supposed to be a world-beater at this point in the game anyways... GG From.

          So, the Crown of the Sunken King increases Endurance, Strength, Dexterity, Intelligence and Faith by 1, while reducing Vigor and Vitality by 1. This ring, meanwhile, increases Vigor, Endurance and Vitality. If those three stats are less than 93 (which is sorta insane) you gain 3 points.

          So, does wearing both of them give you +1 to Strength, Dex, Int and Faith, and +2 to Vigor and (at least) Vitality and +4 to Endurance, at the cost of 8% more damage?

            The lower your base stat, the more effective the ring becomes... Very good for SL1 runs... If combined with Third Dragon Ring, your 4x attacks with a Broadsword, becomes 5x (because of increased stamina)... Note tho, that it affects the damage given by Flynn's Ring negatively, due to Max Equip Load change.

            It seems that From considered about the players who did SL1 runs, that's why they made those DLC items work like that... (Flynn's Ring, Ring of The Embedded gives more bonus, the lesser your base stats are)... Vessel Shield + Crown of the Sunken King + Dex/Str Rings allow you to wear more powerful weapons like Ice Rapier, etc, even you're SL1... They forgot to give a reward for SL1 playthrough tho (Like the ones you get when finishing no-bonfire/no-death runs).

              No, it doesn't. When equipping the ring only the def stats Strike. Slash and Thrust are raised. Plus Vig, End and Vit, sure. The equipped weapon stats stay the same. Too lazy to learn how to read a table?

                Is this really the case? This ring increases damage taken by a certain % but nowhere have I found it to increase the damage you output.
