Alright let's get to it.

The greatest rings are based on how generally useful they are in the campaign, and sadly have nothing to do with PVE and PVP. That said, the top rings for a Warrior build are as follows:

4. Hornet Ring

The Hornet Ring increases critical hit damage -- meaning parries and backstabs -- by 30%, making this ring especially useful for a warrior character.

The Hornet Ring is found in the Untended Graves at Dark Firelink Shrine after the boss, Champion Gundyr. Keep moving right as you approach the entrance to Firelink -- past a black knight, there will be a headstone with the ring next to it.

 3. Covetous Silver Serpent Ring

The Covetous Silver Serpent Ring increases souls attained by 10%, making it generally useful to attain for all classes.

The ring can be found above Firelink Shrine after purchasing the tower key from the handmaiden for 20,000 souls. Use the key on the tower near the tree giant. Go up the stairs and drop down onto the roof to the left. Go past the nest and drop down onto the ledge below on the left. Keep walking around clockwise until you discover an entrance which leads to the rafters above Firelink. Walk straight across the beam and attack the wall to reveal an illusionary wall. Go forward from there and drop down to find a chest containing the ring on the right.

2. Havel's Ring

Havel's Ring increases maximum equipment load by 15%, essentially making this vitally important for all warrior characters who prefer heavy attire.

This ring is created using the soul of a stray demon with soul transposition for 5,000 souls. It can be found by taking the elevator up near the Old Wolf of Farron, in Farron's Keep, and travelling across the large broken bridge. The Stray Demon can be located there. You cannot miss it.

1. Chloranthy Ring

The Chloranthy Ring increases stamina regeneration by 7 points per second, making a serious difference when swinging larger weaponry, or needing to recover.

The ring can be located in the undead settlement. After defeating the fire demon with Siegvard, use the staircase in the house on the right. Use the nearby bridge to enter a home on the left. Go past some enemies and the two larger enemies, Evangelists, to discover a roof. Run across the roof to the left to find a wooden platform. From there, drop down onto a stone tower. Enter the tower and be careful, using the ledges as you drop down. The ring is behind some barrels and crates on the ground floor.

There you have it. Those were the top 4 rings for a warrior build in Dark Souls 3. Some honourable mentions include:

  • the Knight's Ring
  • the Ring of Favour
  • the Sun Princess Ring
  • the Covetous Gold Serpent Ring
