Where To Find Ring Of Oath In Elden Ring

The reason why players are unable to find the Ring of Oath in Elden Ring is that the item is actually called The Dark Moon Ring in the game.

Ranni’s quest line is one of the most important quests in Elden Ring. It spans across numerous areas and requires you to complete multiple objectives. Towards the end of it, you will be faced with a door that requires the ‘Ring of Oath’ to proceed.

This ring is extremely important as it not only concludes Ranni’s quest line but also unlocks an additional ending. In this guide, we’ll go over how you can acquire the Ring of Oath in Elden Ring including the quests you need to complete and its exact location.

Ring of Oath Explained in Elden Ring

You need to find the Ring of Oath at the end of Ranni’s quest, as you will need it to access the Grand Cloister, which concludes the quest. If you do not have it, you won’t be able to finish this quest.

It is important to note that the game does not have an item explicitly called the ‘ring of oath’ instead you have to search for the Dark Moon ring because this is what the item is actually called.

It is important to note that this ring does not possess any status effects or buffs and is merely a key item.

To pick it up, you first need to complete the Carian Study Hall puzzle and defeat Starscourge Radahn. Following this, you need to clear out Nokstella, which will eventually lead you to Astel, Naturalborn of Void. Here you’ll find a door that will grant you access to the Grand Cloister. Without the ring, however, the path will be blocked by a barrier, with the message that reads; “you cannot proceed without a ring of oath

To find the ring, fast travel to Raya Lucaria Grand Library Site of Grace where Renalla will be present, at least after you have defeated her.

For Players who have not unlocked the Raya Lucaria Grand Library Site of Grace yet, they first need to go to the Debate Parlor Site of Grace, head upwards through the grand staircase, reach a hallway where Moongrum the Carian Knight is present, defeat him and take the elevator to the Raya Lucaria Grand Library. Before going to the library, defeat the Baleful Shadow he’ll drop the Discarded Palace Key which is required for the next objective.

There will be a treasure chest right beside Renalla in the Grand Library. Use the Discarded Palace Key to open the chest.

In the chest, you’ll get the Dark Moon Ring (also known as the Ring of Oath) that is required to access the room in Nokstella. Fast travel back to Astel’s room and the blue barrier will not be there.

Now you can engage in the boss fight with Astel, Naturalborn of the Void. Defeat him and then place the ring on Ranni’s finger. You will then be able to complete the questline.
