The Covetous Silver Serpent Ring is a ring in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

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 with gluttony.
This silver ring, engraved with the serpent, rewards its wearer with additional souls for each kill.


After traversing the 1st fog gate in Tomb of the Giants, you will have to deal with a Black Knight Halberdier. During the fight, a Giant Skeleton Archer will keep harassing you, behind him is a Brave Warrior corpse. Now, in what seems like an endless pit, is a hidden area (an optional path) that can be pinpointed using Prism Stones (on the right side of the previous corpse). Drop off there and follow the available path, it is guarded by 5 Bone Towers that emerge when the ring is in arms reach.

General information[]

Grants an additional 20% souls for enemies killed. Stacks and compounds with the Symbol of Avarice, as well as overkilling enemies. These effects all stack multiplicatively, resulting in a total of 172.8% of the original amount of souls gained. The soul absorption delay following after killing a boss grants the player enough time to equip both the Symbol of Avarice, and the Silver Serpent Ring. Overkill does not take effect on boss enemies.
