The recipe book Little Lifesavers contains the recipe for the ring of riddance. It can be found in a treasure chest in Heliodor Castle in the Queen's Bedchamber during the second act. If two rings of riddance +3 or a devil's tail +3 are equipped at once, it is possible to become completely resistant to becoming cursed.

Dragon Quest Heroes II[edit]

The ring of riddance reduces the duration of being cursed by 40%. Once it has been fully upgraded, the curse duration will be reduced by 80% and it will also grant a defence bonus of +10. The ring can be received by exchanging 6 mini medals once or it can be dropped by Hell gladiators.
