The Ring of the Embedded is a ring in Dark Souls II: Crown of the Ivory King.

In-Game Description

Ring crafted from the chains of the Embedded.
Receive various benefits, but at the cost
of increased damage taken.
The chains of the Embedded have the power
to transform people into slaves of pleasure,
setting them on a path of ruin.
This ring augments that peculiar quality.


Frozen Eleum Loyce - From the Abandoned Dwelling bonfire, proceed as normal until there is a tree and a narrow alleyway between two buildings. Walk to the edge and then left to reach a corpse holding the ring.


Increases VGR, END and VIT depending on how low level these stats are while increasing damage taken. Niche ring for low level runs.


  • Increases Vigor, Endurance and Vitality by an amount that is inversely proportional to how high each attribute currently is. This means that this ring gives a smaller bonus the more points you have invested in those attributes.
  • Increases damage taken by 8.5%
