|Ring of the Beast|
| Base Value:|
While wearing this ring, you will receive 100 extra health and your claw attacks will do an additional 20 damage.
Ring of the Beast is a ring found in The Elder Scrolls V: Dawnguard, during the Rings of Blood Magic quest. It is only available if the Dragonborn chooses to become a Vampire Lord at the conclusion of Bloodline.
Wearing this ring grants an additional 100 points of health and increases the damage of Vampire Lord claw attacks by 20 damage. In addition, all unarmed damage (whether in Vampire Lord form or not) is increased by 20 points.
This ring is ideal for the warrior playstyle due to the increase in health. It is also ideal for an unarmed combatant due to the bug that allows 20 extra unarmed damage while not in Vampire Lord form.
This extra damage stacks with the Khajiit racial bonus of 12 damage claw attacks, as well as the Gloves of the Pugilist for 10 unarmed damage, allowing for an additional 42 damage.
