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 4 rings for a dual-wielding 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 dual-wielding warrior character. This is especially true of backstabs, as players will want to circle around due to limited defence.

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. Pontiff's Right Eye


Because attacking quickly and somewhat aggressively is important due to the fact blocking isn't possible, this ring can be very useful. Boosts attacks to a maximum of +15%, as long attacking continues.

The ring is located in Irithyll of the Boreal Valley after defeating the giant Sulyvahn's Beast, which attacks after passing the halfway point of the bridge. Defeating this enemy gives you this ring.

It's possible to completely avoid the enemy the first time you meet it, through the barrier on the other side of the bridge. Keep sprinting and once you're through the barrier, the creature will disappear. It will appear again later in the water-filled area past Yorshka's church, where you can fight it and receive the ring. It's recommended fighting it the first time, though, as the encounter is tougher the second time due to the water.

2. Ring of Favour

Increases max HP by 3%, max Stamina by 8.5%, and max Equip Load by 5%. While those figures might not sound much, that extra stamina, especially, is a tremendous help for characters utilizing smaller weapons more rapidly.

It's a guaranteed drop from one of the "Sulyvahn Beasts" near Archdeacon Mcdonnell, a large completely still character in the corner of a basement area filled with shallow water. To reach McDonnell, start from the Pontiff Sulyvahn bonfire. Go through the door and through the courtyard full of Giants (only two are alive). Enter the building used to reach the Silver Knights, before the sloped rooftops. On the ground floor, before going up the stairs, strike at the wall on the left to reveal a ladder leading down.

You will face a difficult encounter facing both Sulyvahn Beasts together. Using a bow to draw the one on the left's attention is best. Proceed to move into the corner where you descended to avoid alerting the other. Once one is defeated, you can deal with the other fairly easily.

1. Chloranthy Ring

The Chloranthy Ring increases stamina regeneration by 7 points per second, making a serious difference when swinging smaller weaponry rapidly, 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 dual-wielding warrior build in Dark Souls 3.

Some honorable mentions include:

  • Havel's Ring
  • the Covetous Silver Serpent Ring
  • the Hunter's Ring
  • the Covetous Gold Serpent Ring
