      Here's your Soulsborne link. This tells of an age of Great Ones, some superior beings who exist alongside humanoid superdudes and ultraqueens. Dark Lord ending of DS3 x number of intersecting universes and this is the twisted, very human result. Yet the dragons are eternal, evolving forever to survive in twisted forms, as evidenced clearly through these games. They are a good metaphor for sin.

        Sooooo, the only thing this item exists for is to propose marriage to an NPC who will always reject you? Why bother seeking it out?

            Found one at chalice 6mmdnwqn, layer 2 optional area, inside a sarcophagus. No additional rituals at this chalice, just regular dungeon, easy enough to grab.

              It would seem that the Ring of Betrothal is further proof that any character you can make is far too ****in’ ugly to ever be accepted into a relationship.

                I have a feeling this has something to do with the Prostitute, she is the one that ends up bearing a great one. Might have to be in ng+ to propose to her after you've acquired great respect

                  Based on the description it would make sense to be able to offer this to Arianna right? Having to bear a special child and all.

                      Seems to me that, considering we have people who can/have hacked all through the game files, we can all rest assured that there is no secret parameter to using this ring successfully. If there was, surely the people going through the files would have found it by now. Hopefully now we can all lay this to rest.

                        I found the Ring as the final reward in the pre-boss side dungeon on layer 3, right before the Pthumerian Elder. No additional rites whatsoever, completely vanilla, first run through. I wasn't even playing online. Definitely could have just gotten ridiculously lucky, but now I'm curious about whether it is truly as rare as believed? Based on this experience, it seems additional rites are not necessary to find it, although I cannot say if they would raise the chances.

                              For everyone in the comments that are wondering, I have played this game repeatedly several times with the same hunter and regardless of your actions or choices, you cannot marry Annalise nor can you propose to any other NPC. I've given her blood drugs from every enemy hunter in the game and no change is made. The item is more of a comical item for special interactions with Annalise, and just a collectors item, it serves no further purpose.

                                      A thought just occurred to me: has anyone been able to get close enough to Yharnam to see if she's wearing the ring? She certainly had a hell of a childbirth, after all.

                                          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"

                                                      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?

                                                        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.

                                                          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)?

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

                                                              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. Too simple? Okay... 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." Still too simple? Or, perhaps, already done, and failed? Try it anyways... in different scenarios, such as after every boss fight. Or after a certain number of blood offerings. Or what if, you propose to Iosefka during the Blood Moon? Already done? Yes? No? Hm.... Any ideas? This game's story is truly sophisticated...

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 goo.gl/JifPxc (will be updated with every material very soon, just a few missing)

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"

                                                                  • Anonymous

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.

                                                                    • Anonymous

Maybe rush to Mergo's, and immediately start doing chalices. Kill the Pthumerian Queen, offer what would seem like an insane amount of dregs (150-500) and start offering it to people until you find ANY NPC that will accept it. Also, it might be worth trying it after you resurrect her if she died. And, it might also be worth it to try keeping her alive killing Alfred then offering it to her. As others have stated, this would not be in the game to serve no other purpose than to just be there. There has to be something we are missing. And on that note, I really do think there is a lot we are all missing surrounding the Queen.

                                                                      • Use glyph 7wwja6xz to access my Fetid/Rotted/Cursed Pthumeru Ihyll Chalice. From the Chamber of the Seal, head to the pre-area before you enter the core of Layer 1. Head down the ladder and to your right, hugging the right wall. Enter the cave-like passage and continue straight, through the two doors. The chest is in the room passed the second door guarded by one of those White Knight dudes with a sword and some rats.

Maybe you need to wear a certain set while offering, like the cainhurst gear... maybe you'll become worthy, i mean who knows, in dark souls 2 you need 500 pvp kills for a certain reward. This ring must be good for something more then a rejected proposal...

As everyone knows before fighting Mergo's wetnurse you encounter the pthumerian queen weeping, but what you want to observe are her hands. I don't remember which of the hands was, i think the left one, but as you can see she has an engagement ring. I think said ring is the "betrothal ring", and the reason we find it stained with blood is because of the injury the queen has on her belly.

I'd say that's false since I was able to find the ring in Layer 2 with no offerings. It could be that using offerings could change it's location but my theory is that the location is random.

But this ring and the Yharnam Head Stone both have direct ties to the Queen and both do absolutely nothing! That can't just be a coincidence or a troll! wait a minute. Oh right this is Miyazaki were talking about. I feel so trolled.

The second layer boss is the Bloodletting Beast, the headless version. Layer 3: - 2 Great One Coldbloods and the Lost Chikage in the side passage before the lamp - One more Great One Coldblood in the main area. The third layer boss is the Bloodletting beast, headless version agian.
