- The regular Ring of Blades is dropped by The Pursuer in the Forest of Fallen Giants.
- The +1 version is dropped by the Pursuer in the Iron Keep, found in the Smelter Demon's arena after resting on a Bonfire.
- The +2 version is dropped by one of the two Pursuers that appear in Drangleic Castle in NG+. The other Pursuer drops a Twinkling Titanite and a Washing Pole.
- In Scholar of the First Sin, the ring is dropped by the pre-buffed Pursuer, and the other Pursuer no longer drops a Washing Pole.
Increases physical damage by 20/35/50 points for the base, +1, and +2 versions respectively. This boost is applied to the weapon's scaling. As such, low damaging but quick hitting weapons will benefit more from this ring.
Oddly enough, some specific lines of weapons, like the Black Knight weapons or the Dragonslayer's Crescent Axe, still gain the full benefit of the ring, even if they inflict other damage types besides physical damage. However, weapons that have been infused with anything other than Raw, Mundane, or Enchanted will have their damage increased to a lesser degree. Furthermore, weapons that do not inflict physical damage at all, such as the Moonlight Greatsword, will not benefit from the ring at all.
- In the original Japanese description, the mad knight of Alken is named Adgars, in the same text, Alken and Venn are never specified to have been founded by the same man, but rather described as "having the same origins".
