Stone Ring


"The beloved ring of the gallant Shieldless Lothian, formerly of Forossa. Hits greatly reduce enemies poise. The effect may seem trivial, but for those who comprehend how critical it is to exploit a hole in enemy defenses, the significance of this ring will be clear."

Stone Ring 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.

  • It also affects all spells (tested with Lightning Spear vs Sanctum Soldier, who as a result got staggered by each LS instead of each 2nd cast. Didn't test pyromancies or hexes, but I can only assume that it's global, no reason for it not to be). This is due to a previous patch that reduced the poise damage of Sorceries, so this ring is a means of getting that poise damage back (which means you need to wear this ring if you want the same effect you had before the Sorceries got nerfed in this regard).

      Question regarding poise damage and this ring, since this article states that the ring gives an additional 30 poise damage to all attacks, if i equip the ring and use a hammer for example (most hammers have a base poise damage of 30), will I now deal Great Hammer poise damage with a hammer?

        Ogre fell off the tree-bridge when I was retreating, lost the ring. Used the bonfire ascetic and the ogre didn't drop it again...

          Ring works hella good with the Drakekeepers Sword. Has the poise break of a freaking ultra greatsword at 60 poise damage. 120 if power stancing. And it's twice as fast, getting twice the benefit from this ring and the ring of blades as they both add flat bonuses. Possibly the most cancerous of builds.

            Yes, a bonfire ascetic will cause the ring to drop again. Tested on PS4 12/17/2018.

                A must for anyone who for some reason wants to do a Dagger weapon class only run. Being able to combo down anything with poise when powerstancing daggers is p much only possible with this ring if they have any poise at all.

                  An almost essential ring for Sorcerer's in PVP for those moments you're forced into melee combat, extremely useful.
