It is not an online only item.

It is an online item in the sense that it affects online play (or simulation of it, as the NPC invaders are treated similarly, if not the same, as regular invasions in the code, with the exception that they can occur offline). An online item in Souls games does NOT mean, nor imply, that they ONLY work online. It means they affect multiplayer functionality in some way. For example - the ring that Shalaquor sells that lets you choose a "god" is meant to limit the pool of people that can summon you / you can summon. However, you can also just equip it offline for the heck of it, though it will quite literally do you no good. The same can be said for joining the Blue Sentinals, the Rat Covenant (though the ring from them is useful), the Covenant of Champions (though this has the additional effects of disabling ALL summons including NPC summons, as well as making enemies infinitely respawn as in every other souls game), the Blood hunters covenant (if thats not the name, I can't remember it off the top of my head... and this one ALSO has a ring that you CAN obtain offline even though this is a PvP covenant... but only if you use a bonfire ascetic in the correct place, or join in NG+), and most of the other covenants as the majority of them in DS2 are intended to either be Co-op or PVP functions. They're by no means online only, but you will only get the most (or ANY) use of them from online functionality tied to them.

There is always one at the Giant near the Soldiers Rest bonfire if you haven't obtained it yet in this play through, in SotFS (can't speak for the non-SotFS version because I can't even install it any more... thanks steam/from) It is not dependent on being invaded either, it is there every time I go to get the hat from the leather armor set regardless of whether or not I have ever even been online with the character.
