A pontifex shadow ring is an item which can be restored after completing the City of Senntisten quest by combining a pontifex observation ring (unlocked after Azzanadra's Quest) with a dragonstone at an archaeologist's workbench. The option to restore the ring appears under the Miscellaneous tab on the workbench.
Upon choosing to investigate the pontifex shadow ring, the following properties are shown. With the exception of the teleport, these effects are provided only with the ring equipped:
The teleport option takes the player to northern portion of the Senntisten cathedral.
The ring can be upgraded further by being charged with 1,000 resonant anima of Jas. This improves the tier of Elder Troves which can be obtained within Senntisten, and nullifies the stun from Kerapac, the bound's jump slam attack. The ring does not need to be worn or carried in the inventory to protect the player from the stun from the jump slam.

- 26 July 2021 (Update):
- The Pontifex shadow ring's teleport option now teleports the player into Azzanadra's Cathedral, rather than outside the Senntisten entrance.
- Prior to the release of the first front, The Nodon Front of the Elder God Wars Dungeon, the ring's teleport would take the player to outside the ancient doors to Senntisten. This would lead to a humorous exchange between Intern Jimmy and the player, where he explained that the wards gathered during the quest blocked the teleport, and that it would take "a few weeks" to allow the ring to teleport into the cathedral instead.
