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).

      At first I didn't notice the tutorial in Things Betwixt, so I went to the ogre I spotted before entering the hut. Had a miserable first experience I was so full of confidence having finished DS1 several times. Ogre beated my ass thoroughly but eventually got the ring. Now it's a tradition to go humiliate the ogre not only for the juicy 1000 souls but especially because this ring is busted. The few times I considered removing it it made most trash mobs way more tedious, I'm so used to it. Huge recommend.

      • Makes PvE much, much easier. A curved sword + Stone Ring stunlocks every invader NPC I've come across (except Forlorn who randomly decides to roll away and ignore recovery frames)

          Does it add +30 poise damage to all attacks or to all weapons? Meaning two powerstanced weapons will deal together +60 more damage than regular or just +30?

            Protip if you die in the same moment as the ogre, burn an ascetic at the first bonefire after the house of the old firekeepers, it will respawn with the ring, just be aware that it will have dmg and hp of a NG+ foe

              This procs on Every hit of a spell? Even on multi hit spells (soul spear barrage, soul vortex)? I may have to test this on a certain staggerable boss...

                Damn, I never used this before. Thought it was useless, but apparently you can easily cheese some fights with this.

                  I would say wear this AND the Ivory Warrior Ring, but if you wear both then you get only the white aura. So only wear the IWR because the green aura looks better.

                    Does it apply on spells with multiple projectiles (soul spear barrage, homing soulmass, affinity, etc.)? Because if it procs with every projectile it's gonna stunlock a ton of bosses.

                    P. S. sorry if my english is bad it's not my first language

                      Tested it and yeah it does also apply for spells, without the ring it took two standard soul arrows to stagger an Alonne Knight, with the ring it took a single arrow.

                        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.

                              Does anyone know if you bonfire aesthetic the things betwixt bonfire does the ogre drop it again? Kinda disappeared for me and I kinda need it bad

                                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.
