    This achievement requires collecting all 107 rings, which includes all variations. Therefore you need all 70 basic rings AND all +1 and +2 versions (one ring has a +3 version, too).

    This image shows inventory order for all rings. Any that appear more than once have multiple versions that can be found in subsequent playthroughs.

    The basic versions of each ring can be found in the first playthrough. The +1 versions can be found in playthrough 2 (in unique locations). The +2 versions (and single +3 version) can be found in playthrough 3 (again, in unique locations). In subsequent playthroughs, all of the rings from previous playthroughs are available as well, so you can't miss out on anything that you didn't get by going to the next playthrough.

    Most are found in static places throughout the world. Some are sold by vendors. Some are are only available as covenant rewards and can't be obtained otherwise.

    Rings can be traded between players, so if you have a friend that has a ring that you're missing and they drop it for you, it will count towards the achievement.

    No, you need them ALL. Some standard rings are actually trickier to get than their + variants.

    I created a Google Sheet that lists all the rings and how to get them. You can go to file and copy the sheet so you can keep track of what rings you need.

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/18qUft3HNONdaW7nQJJ5W...

    This also includes the other collection achievements.

    At the bottom of the page you can select the different pages.

    Using the paint can you can black out the box for acquired which makes it much easier to see what you have.

    If you were using my checklist and everything is checked off but you don't have the achievement it is because i forgot the Lloyd's Shield Ring. I fixed it and i'm very sorry for missing it.

    MISTER RKSoo, the + is based on the playthrough then?? If so....Thanks.
    Posted by MISTER RK on 14 Apr 17 at 05:20
    Frankies BackThe + on the ring means u need to be at least on new game + to get it. You can get it later though. New game + is after you beat the game you can start a new play through with the same character.

    THIS IS NOT A SOLUTION FOR THE ACTUAL ACHIEVEMENT ITSELF

    This is a solution if your Master of Rings achievement has glitched. Go to Firelink Shrine and go against a wall or something to where if you drop something you can see it easily. Go to your rings in your inventory and hit "Leave Selected" now select a whole row of Rings and pick them back up rinse and repeat for all the rings and your achievement should unlock it unlocked for me. This happens because the game doesn't register that you have duplicate rings and only registers the original ring so if you sold the original ring it will not register so when you repick them back up it then counts those rings. I'm hoping this resolves the achievement for any of you that has it glitched.

    Kugaregreat solution! but i have something important to add: I only had to do this with a single ring... the Young Dragon Ring. I started as a sorcerer and already had this ring in my inventory. I never obtained it the normal way and i had the feeling the game may not register this ring as collected. So i gave it a try and picked this ring to recollect... and boom. achievement unlocked!
    Posted by Kugare on 22 Nov 17 at 15:32
    UnleashedHorrorI'm glad that this helped you, I started panicking when my achievement didn't unlock and after checking some forums the strategy I explained above worked.

    It's usually one ring that is glitched but dropping all the rings and picking them back up will work if you don't know which ring isn't registering.
