Calamity Ring

Calamity Ring

A ring enchanted by the orange eye of Kalameet, the bringer of calamity. Doubles damage received by its wearer.
A useless ring befitting of no finger. Best left unknown, or at least well hidden.

Calamity Ring is a Ring in Dark Souls and Dark Souls Remastered. Players can equip up to 2 Rings, but equipping two of the same item is not possible.

Effects

  • Wearing it will double the damage you sustain.

Location

Application

  • This ring may have been intended as an optional "Hard Mode" for extra-masochistic players.
  • It can be used as a trick to fool players whose worlds you invade that you're giving them a gift when actually you are making them easier to defeat.

      Kalameet and all of the DLC bosses are already hard on NG. Taht's why most people attend them at the end of the game. And if you play your cards right at this point you should have your chosen weapon and armor maxed as well as most important stats leveled sou you are almost at peak of your power.

      This mean at NG+ when Kalameet (and other bosses) are much more boosted you're at the same point as before. Sure you probably have a bit more HP and a bit better defences and maybe some more spells but battle is still more challenging than last time.

      NG++ and far get's olny worse cause bosses hp and damage goes up when you are stuck with your already maxed character. Sure you get much more souls but no matter how many levels you gain and how many items you upgrade you are stuck at cap when it goes to damage or defence. I mean yea you're getting stronger but boosting your damage or defences by 1 point per level or getting few HP points doesn't change anything when Kalameet can turn you into grilled steak with single breath.

        after doing literally everything in this game. . .except getting this ring and i finally did it and i find out what it does. . .and i dunno why i'm surprised that they would troll the players this way. .

          I mean it seems like a pretty obvious LoTR reference. You even get a little eye of Sauron over you when you wear it.

            Tip about tricking players is just stupid.

            Veteran players know what this ring is doing so they don't get fooled.

            New players will be so stressed seeing invader that picking items and equipping them will be the last thing they'll think about during invasion.

            So no sir! This ain't gonna work...

              This ring is not actually useless. It does have a couple uses, albeit very limited. During the fight with kalameet, if you are grabbed by his mark of calamity attack, simply put on and take off this ring to remove the double damage effect. Very useful on ng+ and beyond where it can make the difference between getting one shot or being able to survive a hit. Also, you are technically “immune” to the mark of calamity attack as long as you have this equipped. Surprised no one has mentioned this.

              • obviously, the intended way to use this ring is for the fight against Manus, so you can do a "hit me harder, dark daddy" cosplay, which makes him immediately giving up

                  I feel like kalameet would give this to you as a christmas present and be like "it's the thought behind the gift"

                    "Doubles damage received by its wearer" I'm no good with english, but wouldn't that sentence literally mean "Doubles the damage received by the person wearing it" aka. "Doubles the damage received by the player(you)"? I might just be completely wrong, but I'd still like an explanation.

                      so, I'm running giant dad, and I accidentally broke the ring of FaP. I also beat crossbreed Priscilla before, so I can't trade xanthous crown...any alternatives?

                        So...I can't decide if the writer is trolling or he's just really that blatantly stupid to believe anyone with more than 10 minutes in a Souls game is dumb enough to immediately equip a ring an enemy phantom drops them...

                            My friend dared me to play NG+ using this ring and the Symbol of Avarice. Does this double the HP drain the Symbol does or is it not effected?

                              I haven't got this ring yet. The dragon is soo hard to kill. Btw what is the hard mode we're talking about?

                                May want to remove the Karmic Justice part, as Karmic Justice activates based on hits taken, not percent of max HP taken, if anything this would just make Karmic Justice activate less, as you can take less hits.
