Indeed, the bulk of its interconnected rings are made up of the smaller holds, which are usually only for foot placement.

In the game, this Ring of Elden The symbol is meant to be the combination of all the different powerful runes that the player is tasked with collecting. Despite its complexity, this Ring of Elden symbol has popped up in other places after being lovingly recreated by fans of the game, and such Ring of Elden the player even put the design on his graduation cap.

It is also an impressive way to use a hundred yellow spare escalations.
