Trivia goes here

      Just a thought, let me know if anyone has tried this or not.

      Don't you essentially become her kin when you join the Vileblood covenant? It wouldn't make sense for her to accept marriage from you since you would be related by blood technically at that point. Since Cainhurst itself is an optional area, you don't have to go there right after you defeat the Witch of Hemwick, so what if someone were to traverse the chalice dungeons and get the ring before joining the covenant. Since you wouldn't share her blood at that point, would the option to propose to her still pop up?

        I've found a code that still works. You have to have made an Pthumeru Ihyll Root Chalice with both Fetid and Rotted offerings. My chalice just says "Rotted Pthumeru Ihyll". The code is: 73gjetqt
        It's on Layer 1 on the first bonus room, just swing a left and make your way up until you reach a room with a sarcophagus, the ring will be in there.

          I'm guessing someone has already tried it, but does it work with Iosefka, Arianna or the chick outside the Mergo's Wet Nurse fight? The description says "only permitted to those slated to bear a special child"

          • Video of the Annalise / Proposal Dialogue05 Jul 2016 08:34  

            Here is the dialogue when proposing to Annalise Queen of the Vilebloods, using the Ring of Betrothal (from Depth 5 Chalice Dungeons)

            • another glyph05 Jul 2016 08:34  

              I created a pthumeru ihyll dungeon, the ring is in the treasury of the first side maze at layer 1, just spawn to head to right ! The glyph is 4u6bqi97.

              • WHat about the girl at the beginning area?05 Jul 2016 08:34  

                I'm assuming this means you can try talking to anyone that cold have a great one in her. If anyone hadn't killed the nurse at the beginning area at this point, try talking to her?

                • RE: Giving ring to Yharnam05 Jul 2016 08:34  

                  It specifically says: "only permitted to those slated to bear a special child." The only who actually was considered slated was Yharnam. Now I am totally going off the lore that was conjectured by several sources but they all agree that Yharnam was SUPPOSED to have Mergo. Therefore maybe try giving her the ring prior to the wet nurse fight. JUST an idea. I unfortunately do not have characters powerful enough to handle a depth 5. So yeah, someone try this and let me know whats going on. I assume annalise is special since "CHILD OF BLOOD" is written on the armor set. However YHARNAM popped out mergo. So yeah. Thats all i got.

                  • Female Characters05 Jul 2016 08:34  

                    Can females propose to Annalise? Is it possible that the ring is not for your use, but desired by another NPC for their use (i'm thinking Gehrman)?

                    • Blood05 Jul 2016 08:34  

                      So annalise doesn't want to marry because you share the same blood... there are a few things we could try: <br/> <br/>Using ariannas blood before joining the covenant (she wears the noble dress, found in cainhurts. Maybe their blood is related?) <br/>Using iosefka / cleric girl to "purge" or cleanse the blood, and then try proposing.

                      • What if...05 Jul 2016 08:34  

                        You wear the full Cainhurst armor set, set the oath "Corruption" on, and offer a certain amount of blood dregs, to which she would see you as a "worthy" vileblood husband. <br/>Too simple? <br/>Okay... <br/>What if, you propose to Arianna? Since, in the description, it mentions this ring is only permitted to be used with those "slated to bear a special child." <br/>Still too simple? Or, perhaps, already done, and failed? <br/>Try it anyways... in different scenarios, such as after every boss fight. Or after a certain number of blood offerings. <br/>Or what if, you propose to Iosefka during the Blood Moon? <br/>Already done? Yes? No? <br/>Hm.... <br/>Any ideas? This game's story is truly sophisticated...

                          video is here The ring takes like 30 seconds to reach but you must have created an ihyll root chalice before. My root is a cursed, rotted and fetid. Gylph code is in the video discription. If you dont have the materials check out my playlist which details how to get materials (will be updated with every material very soon, just a few missing)

                          • Miyazaki Ruse05 Jul 2016 08:34  

                            I think that Miyazaki may be pulling off another Pendant ruse on us once again. Still, going all the way to completing numerous dungeons and bosses surprisingly more difficult than anything else in the main game just to get The Yharnam Stone and this ring is just too painful to be a Miyazaki troll. A DLC is a bit too far-fetched when concerning these items since they are too difficult to acquire. Then again, who knows. It could be the most painful troll of the From games, or could be the key to unlocking the "Legendary Blood-Moon Greatsword"

                              From a reddit post this code has fetid and rotted offerings, but this page says just rotted. Can someone check and confirm which one? I have limited materials, so I don't want to make a Rotted, just to have to spend more materials to make a Fetid+Rotted again.
