The East Wood Grain Ring is a ring in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

This special ring crafted in an Eastern land is made of gold, but with a wood grain crest on its surface.
The ring slows the loss of weapon durability and is particularly useful to bearers of delicate swords crafted in the East.


The East Wood Grain Ring is bought from Shiva of the East in Blighttown for 10,000 souls. Players must be in the Forest Hunter covenant, even if Absolution has been purchased.

General information[]

The East Wood Grain Ring slows the loss of weapon durability, making it a prime candidate for use with weapons that have low durability, such as Crystal weapons or Katanas. It's also useful to bring to areas that have enemies that degrade durability, like the Demon Ruins, though it does not directly reduce the durability damage of those attacks. It does not reduce weapon durability loss from special attacks such as the Drake Sword's two-handed strong attack, either.
