In-Game Description

One of the special rings granted to the four knights of Gwyn. The Leo Ring belonged to Ornstein the Dragonslayer. His lugged spear is said to have sliced a boulder in two.


It is necessary to kill Executioner Smough first, in order to obtain this ring. Once the boss fight ends, Dragonslayer Ornstein will leave the ring behind.

It does not affect critical attacks, like backstabbing and riposting, or stagger damage.


  • In rare occasions Ornstein may fall out of the arena, making this ring unobtainable.


  • Prior to patch 1.04, it was necessary to kill Ornstein first to collect the ring.
