Notes

    • If you kill Lautrec before he gets back to the Firelink Shrine and does something awful, you won't be able to pick up his armor set later.
    • If you kick him off the cliff, then reload the area. The ring will be where he was sitting. This is the easiest way to kill him.

      It's the best ring in the game, or perhaps just behind Havels... The problem is, when you take it off it breaks (you lose it)... so if you make a build around it (for example you can only fast roll with this ring on (it could be a thing in lower than meta builds) you don't really want to take it off, or you will mess up your build, so you only have 1 Ring slot to spare... In PVE this isn't much of an issue, but in PVP, a good player, will constantly swap rings: swap into a Havel (when you are using a really heavy weapon) swap into a Wolf Ring (when an opponent is trying to break your poise) a Red Ring (when you want to deal massive Damage to an OP 711 player) swap into Fog Ring (when you need to hide) a Leo Ring (when you suddenly change into a thrust weapon) a DWG ring (to escape with ninja flips or whatever) swap into Magic Bleed Lightning Defense Ring; a Hornet Ring to boost your criticals ETCETERA, and All the combinations above, that's why ideally you want the Two Slots available...
      Making an item that is the most OP ring but coming at "a cost" is just a stroke of genius by FromSoft, things like this are what makes this game a master piece.

        why does everyone hate this ring? it gives you massive bonuses and if you lose a ring slot so what? you still got another for your havels or your gold/silver serpent.

          It may sound great at first but is it worth losing the freedom of using 2 different rings? Overall it might make the character less specialized to deal with or take advantage of specific situations but on the other hand the stat bonuses are significant (it's almost like wearing 3 different rings in one slot) and make the player more versatile overall. It's quite a dilemma!

            I wonder if this is an oversight, you can switch the ring between the first and second slot without breaking it but that realistically means taking it off one finger and placing it on the other which should break it

              So I have may have ****ed up. I just started a new playthrough. As soon as I went to lordran, I went to blightown through the short cut to get the great club. Fast forward to me progressing normally and about to fight the bell gargoyles when I figured it should get the FAP ring. I thought since I started with the master key I don’t need to get the mystery key and I thought it would be funny if I just lock him in the room and lightsaberd the guy through the wall. I then killed him and realized oh crap I can’t open the door and get the items. So I tried to get the mystery key but died on the way there. Is the ring just gone forever or is there a way I can get it back without waiting till painted world?

                Lol, nothing truly wrong with using this, but I'm glad I finally abstained from it in my current playthrough. It gave so much more room to experiment with different rings and switch around when necessary. It's just more fun for me that way. The loss of extra equip load hurts a little bit, but Havel's Ring covers that base for the most part.

                My recommendation: Put off equipping this unless you're dead certain about the configuration of rings you want to use, or if you want to go really heavy without having to slow roll.

                  sry but havels plus the cartwheeling ring for me
                  this ring is major trap as you certainly have to switch rings in some major locations and if you have this on its gonna be a major handicap
                  plus the 20% hp and stamina not so great as most enemies tear right thru that measly one bar
                  leveling endurance covers for the stamina
                  all in all great ring early but dont be afraid of breaking it cause its not realy that op

                    It’s not bad, but i dislike how you can’t take it off. What if you’re a sorcerer build and need to have the Covenant of Artorias for 4 Kings? You may lose your damage boost just to enter the room, and that’s unfortunate. Same with the lava areas. I’m almost always a (Havel + Wolf) or (Bellowing + Dusk) pair myself

                      Oh this ring is evil! I want to get rid of it but I know I’ll need to do about 100 laps of Anor Londo to get my stats back to where they were with the damn thing!

                        GUYS I SIMPLY LOST MY RING OF FAVOR... I think maybe it's a bug, here is the thing, I went to sen's fortress to get the covetous gold serpent ring, and I had 10 humanity on my character and I didn't want to lose that cause I didn't have more left consumable, so I used the rare ring of sacrifice. Here is the weird part, I died (**** my life) and when I got back to the bonfire I did not lose the humanity or the souls but I lost the ring of favor and protection, it just vanished from my inventory. Does anyone knows what happened?
