5 Things to Do Before Dark Souls III: The Ringed City Releases

1 of 5

Beat Ashes of Ariandel


The first expansion to Dark Souls III, Ashes of Ariandel, sent players back into the Painted World to deal with an unknown foe. While this DLC had some issues, namely in its actual length, it’s a wonderful experience for those who have been with the series since the beginning. Going to the Painted World once more was a refreshing change of pace and From Software did a masterful job of bringing the haunting arctic landscape to life.

However, there is more to this expansion than just journeying to this iconic location, as players will have a plethora of new weapons and armor to obtain. Some of these weapons, like the Crow Quills or Friede’s Great Scythe, are especially powerful in the right hands. Not having to worry about backtracking through Ashes of Ariandel to obtain missed items will save you a lot of time and headaches if you aim to obtain every piece of gear in the game.
