    Ehehe~ I'm actually really worried that someone will get it, or I'll give the answer, and nobody will thing it makes sense...

    I thought it was too easy when I wrote it... but then I guess that just shows that people think in different ways lol. Or that it's easy when you already know the answer...

    This is a tough one...

    It's not any status affects, it's not abyss-walking... wait.. Is this about the Abyss overtaking Oolacile?

    The sudden shock and loss was the spreading darkness that consumed much of the land around Oolacile. The Convenant of Artorius could have stopped it, and when you encounter the Abyss it is very much like falling forever (Unless the final line is a metaphor for the fall of the city itself).

    We've exhausted the need for practical reasoning. I figured the bit about the ring is only a distraction from the problem.

    Edit: You know... I just realized the Covenant of Artorius is totally a ring..

    -The Legendary Knight King Rendal-

    According to legend, the King once killed a giant drake by his sword
    alone, and hacked it to pieces, no doubt with the help of his enchanted
    ring which boosts defense against attacks.

    Some interesting answers, but none are right~

    At lease one, maybe more (not telling silly), of the answers so far was close to the actual answer~

    Traversing through Blighttown swamp.


    "A frightful shock, that sudden loss"
    the moment poison sets in

    "The process started, a ring could stop."
    your poisoned, equip the poionbite ring.

    "A fearsome trial, though not a boss"
    it takes a long long time for it to wear off.

    "Take care you must, lest more you drop."
    eat some moss, more health will be lost.

    I'm going out on a limb here.

    Killing Gwynevere then getting invaded by the Darkmoon Blades.

    The "ring" is the only thing I'm not sure, unless by putting on the DMC ring makes you invulnerable to DM invasions?

    Maybe it has something to do with the cat covenant?
    I'm trying to think outside the "ring" so to speak.

    lol


    I thought about those two options before, but what would the rings stop? the violaion of the forest? sinners?
    Neither of them is relevant to the rest of the riddle

    PS: here it is so you people don't have to go back 2 pages

    Thats why I said I was going out on a limb.
    The only thing that doesn't fit is the "ring"
    trial fits because it's a process and the last one fits because you drop SoR when you get killed from a DM invader.

    I was hoping that when you equip the DM ring that you couldnt get invaded by them, but I really doubted that that was true.

    PS: I have it open in another page in view all the time big grin
    Thanks though.

    "A frightful shock, that sudden loss"

    Fat/mid-rolling seems like a shock with the loss of mobility.

    "The process started, a ring could stop."

    Havels Ring

    "A fearsome trial, though not a boss"

    Fat/mid rolling is definitely a trial.

    "Take care you must, lest more you drop"

    Equipping Havel's would be taking care of "dropping like a dead weight.

    MY ANSWER: Fat Rolling...I just read the whole thing over and I'm stumped.
