4022.png "The serpent is an imperfect dragon and symbol of the Undead. Its habit of devouring prey
even larger than itself has led to an association of gluttony. This silver ring, engraved with
the serpent, rewards its wearer with additional souls for each kill.

Effect

  • Increases souls absorbed for each kill by 20%.

Acquired from

  • Found in Tomb of the Giants, close to the second Bonfire.
  • After encountering and killing the 2nd skeleton dog there's a skeleton archer trying to shoot at you. After killing the archer, drop down by the corpse behind him, and there's a hidden path to the ring (drop a Prism Stone off the edge to see the path).
  • It's also possible to jump up to the ledge, where the ring is located, on the right side.
  • Note: Be wary that after picking up the ring 5 skeleton towers will attack you.

Application

  • This is a fantastic ring that makes farming souls significantly easier. If you don't mind the occupied ring slot; it's viable to carry for the rest of the game.
  • Offers no combat effects, its only purpose is to earn more souls from fallen enemies.
  • After killing a boss, there is a slight pause before you earn the souls. Equip the ring before the souls arrive, and the bonus will still apply.
