In Remnant: From the Ashes, Key Items like the Tarnished Ring are often acquired as random drops, meaning that finding one is based entirely on chance. This makes sense given the backstory of the Tarnished Ring, though it can make it a pain to find. During our time in Remnant: From the Ashes, we discovered the Tarnished Ring on a dungeon floor before we even knew to look for it.

If you’re seeking the Tarnished Ring, the best possible place to look are dungeon floors as other gamers have noted finding theirs that way as well. Once you have the Tarnished Ring in your possession, you’ll likely want to know what to do with it. The answer to this depends on where you are in the game.

Inside Ward 13, there’s a Merchant selling Consumables named Reggie. By striking up a conversation with Reggie, you’ll eventually learn that he was the one who lost the Tarnished Ring and would love to have it back. You may need to speak with Reggie several times before he shares this info with you. Once you return the Tarnished Ring to Reggie, you’ll receive Scrap as well as the Scavenger Trait perk as a reward.

With the Scavenger Trait perk, you’ll have an easier time farming Scrap in Remnant: From the Ashes. Given that Scrap is used as currency with Merchants like Reggie, this perk can prove to be extremely useful. At the very least, it’s worth hunting down the Tarnished Ring to get.

Now that you know how to get the Tarnished Ring in Remnant: From the Ashes and what to do with it once you have it, we’re curious to hear your thoughts on the game. Are you loving Remnant: From the Ashes? Are there things you’re struggling with? Let us know down in the comments below!
