The Ring of Favor and Protection is a ring in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

A ring symbolizing the favor and protection of the goddess Fina, known in legend to possess "fateful beauty".
This ring boosts its wearer's HP, stamina, and max equipment load, but breaks if ever removed.


General informationEdit

When worn, the Ring of Favor and Protection increases the player's maximum HP, Stamina and equipment load by 20%. The item is destroyed, however, if it is ever removed.

After the player reaches 40 Endurance, wearing the Ring of Favor and Protection is the only way to further increase maximum Stamina.


This ring is useful for players that are absolutely sure that they would never require another ring slot, or if they temporarily require a boost in vitality and stamina. However, removing the ring (and thus breaking it) is ill-advised since only two of them can be obtained per playthrough.

In PvP, many builds rely on the Ring of Favor and Protection to don heavier armor without sacrificing the fast roll, and the extra HP—essentially granting players the equivalent of extra soul levels without actually leveling up. Players are conversely limiting the diversity of rings they can use, however. The Hornet Ring, Havel's Ring and the Bellowing Dragoncrest Ring are all examples of rings that players could otherwise use had they not equipped the Ring of Favor and Protection with the intent of not breaking it.



  • Swapping a Ring of Favor and Protection with another Ring of Favor and Protection does not cause either to break. Moving the ring between ring slots will also not break the ring.
