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

In-Game Description

A silver ring depicting the snake, both the servant and manifestation of the god of greed, Zandroe.
Greed is traditionally viewed as a vice, but only a fool allows that to ruin a good opportunity.


Close to The Tower Apart bonfire in The Lost Bastille, beyond the room with a Royal Crossbowman and multiple undead dogs.

The +1 version can be obtained by talking to Melentia after having spent over 10,000 souls at her shop. Alternatively, she will drop it if killed before giving it to the player.

The +2 version can be obtained by defeating Mytha, the Baneful Queen on NG+.


  • The effect does not apply when consuming soul items.
  • The effect stacks with other soul increasing items, such as the Jester's Gloves and the Warlock Mask.
  • Just like its Dark Souls counterpart, the ring can be equipped after defeating a boss and the player will gain a boosted number of souls; however, the window for this to be done is much smaller. The ring must be equipped before the "Victory Achieved" message disappears from the screen in order for the player to benefit from its effects.
  • If gifted by Melentia, the +1 version becomes profitable after 60,000 souls have been obtained with it equipped. As many bosses drops tens of thousands of souls, the benefit greatly outweighs the cost regardless of if the ring is obtained early or late into the game.


This ring is based on the sin of greed while its Dark Souls counterpart is associated with the serpent's gluttony.
