it will break at the dragon's aerie fairly easily, and then you start fat rolling if your build is based around the ring. cheap to repair though, and unlike the ring of favor or prisoner's shackles - it doesn't get destroyed on unequip.
Keep royal soldier ring as back up, then you just lose hp and stamina bonus.
Third Dragon Ring Locations 1st: (Rank 2)The First, Second and Third Dragon Ring are treated as the Regular, +1 and +2 versions of the same ring, in that only one of them can be worn at once. ??? What?
Rings in DS2 have better versions of themselves. You have base (1), +1 (2), and +2 (3). The Dragon Ring has named editions rather than a +1/2. You cannot equip duplicate rings even if you have a base ring and a +1 for example. The rest is gibberish.

the 3rd one is not worth it if you have a lot of halth and defence (which results in more hits before you die). The increase is tiny and it only breaks quicker
