Speckled Stoneplate Ring


Stoneplates, the symbol of a true knight, grant the strength to face various hardships. The precious rare speckled stoneplate grants a small boost to defense against magic, flame, and lightning.

Speckled Stoneplate 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.






  • This ring is a way to add on a little extra defense against damage sources that are harder to block. Because it caters to three different damage sources it is more reliable than the other stoneplate rings.
  • The problem with this ring is that the 25 point boost against a given elemental attack is not worth the use of a ring slot. This is compounded by the fact that most areas focus on one elemental damage type, making the other stoneplate rings superior. Even in an ideal scenario, players are better off selecting armor that provides the elemental defenses they need, and using their ring slot on more useful rings. If a player is running a challenge build with armor that has universally terrible elemental defenses, it might be worth considering, but most players should avoid this ring.

      Probably worst item in the game simply because of the opportunity cost of not getting a guaranteed slab instead.

        If you go with option 1 in saving the guy (Kill all but 1 of the enemies and he ends fight with more than 50% hp) you can't get the ring.

          I just finished the full questline in ash lake. His daughter gave me a titanite slab, but no ring.

          Is there no way to get this ring if you finish the full quest?

          His corpse is right there. why cant i pick up the ring?

            I've been thinking about the archetypal symbolism of dark souls lately, and I'm sure it's been said elsewhere, but there's really something symbolic about Siggy being killed by his daughter at the watery/ashen bottom of the world, the place where an everlasting dragon still lives. It's "coincidental" but really not, if you look at world myths, that you have to go to the bottom of the ocean (as in Pinocchio) to rescue your father. In Greek myths, it's traveling to the underworld for the replenishment of spring. Etc, etc. There's a real interesting mythological structure here that is slowly becoming quite coherent to me. The allusions aren't always immediately clear, but I think the link between ash in this game, and water in myths, is one place to start.
