Blue Sentinels Information




Effects of covenant

  • Blue Sentinels will be summoned into the worlds of those in the Way of Blue to defend them from hostile invaders. This behavior is shared with the Blades of the Darkmoon
  • Inexplicably Blue Sentinels will NOT be summoned to protect a player against invading Aldrich Faithful defending Anor Londo or Watchdogs of Farron in the swamps.
  • Blue sentinels phantom color is light blue.
  • If the Host of Embers enters a boss room, the Blue Sentinel will be rewarded with a Proof of a Concord Kept and be returned to their world. They will NOT remain to challenge the boss.
  • If the invader is killed by the spear throwing giant in Irithyll of the Boreal Valley, the Blue Sentinel will NOT be rewarded a Proof of a Concord Kept. However, they will still get the same victory message. 
  • The Matchmaking Formula is Covenant Dependent:


Condition Min Max
Summoning a White Phantom, Warrior of Sunlight, Mound-Maker or no covenant Host - 10 - (Host * 0.1) Host + 10 + (Host * 0.1)
Defending Summons of: Blade of the Darkmoon or Blue Sentinel Host - 20 - (Host * 0.2) Host + (Host * 0.1)

Rank Requirements

This Covenant shares Ranks with the Blades of the Darkmoon. To rank up the player will need Proof of a Concord Kept. To acquire Proof of a Concord Kept a player must be summoned while having their Blue Sentinel badge equipped and successfully defeat an invading phantom. If the player defeats more than one invading phantom while summoned they will acquire more Proof of a Concord Kept. The player is sent home when all invaders are banished. They can also be recieved as a drop from Silver Knight in Anor Londo (Rare).


  1. 10 Proof of a Concord Kept - Darkmoon Ring
  2. 30 Proof of a Concord Kept - Darkmoon Blade (Miracle)


To rank up the player must turn these in to Company Captain Yorshka in Anor Londo. She is located in a tower across an invisible walkway near the first bonfire there.

      This covenant could be easily fixed by allowing blue sentinels to invade non-way-of-the-blue covenants, but the WOTB gets highest priority and massively bigger SL scaling.

      For instance 20 SL difference scale compared to non-WOTB which gets host x 10% scaling.

      In a sense, WOTB allows you to summon sentinels that are possibly 20+ SL higher than you. But From Software these days don't bother with mechanic changes now... It's actually bandai namco tweaking existing values on item stats, that's it.

        Just use CE to cheat these in, From will never learn that the way of the blue becomes obsolete taking these covenants with it.
        ***** them, ain't going to waste hours waking some mobs like in an mmo

          no one does way of blue anymore getting the proof of concepts is pretty much impossible because the silver knights have like a 0.01% drop rate for said item

            just wanted to update I was playing as a blue Sentinel and got summoned as a spear of the church I don't even have access to that Covenant yet

            • 16 Mar 2017 03:02  

              wtf is the purpose of this covenant? If this covenant has the same functionality and same ranks and rewards as Blades of Darkmoon then what's the point?
              The covenants in the previous dark souls are all great and all ( I still love the unusual mechanics of Rat King covenant ) but From really *****ed up here.
              Two covenants with the same***** and are all broken.

                5x in a row was summoned to help. Was killed once but every other time I killed invader/s & helped one player to boss room where it let me help kill Aldrich plus zero proofs. Is this a bug or am I missing something?

                • 11 Jan 2017 21:09  

                  "Inexplicably Blue Sentinels will NOT be summoned to protect a player against invading Aldrich Faithful defending Anor Londo or Watchdogs of Farron in the swamps. " << why? i got summoned to a world and spawn just in front of the host and a aldrich faithful. i killed the aldrich faithful by myself and got my reward. received the "duty fulfilled" message and returned home.

                    I thought I'd be summoned less after going past SL150, since I figured there'd be less folks relying on Way of Blue at that point, but to my surprise I've been getting summoned WAAAY more in NG+ and onward. I'm glad that's the case, because I totally botched Sirris' questline in my first playthrough (stupid sexy Rosaria) and didn't get the gesture necessary to turn in covenant items, so I didn't bother being a Sentinel that first time around and was worried I'd have to start a new game to do this covenant properly.

                      Wait, so does it matter where you are to get summoned as a Blue Sentinel? I was in the Undead Settlement when I got summoned into the Painted World of Ariandel.

                        It can be noted that you are able to invade more frequently as a blue due to you invading "Guilty" players.

                        However, it is also noted that while you CANNOT attack the monsters, their attacks CAN damage you.

                          I thought this covenant was to guard new players or people who don't want to deal with invaders. Yet when I was invaded while fighting the enemies in the area and got straight up attacked by the invader I was relieved when a Blue Sentinel was summoned so I ran back to let them fight because I at least try to be honorable but the Blue Sentinel followed me, eventually the invader followed and went straight for me so I thought screw it and we killed the invader 2v1 after the ***** Blue Sentinel sent me a message saying "You finally did something" (it was lighthearted but I could tell I got on the summons nerves) NOW. If you don't want to guard players who do not wish to fight invaders then don't be in a covenant of which the sole purpose is to essentially protect these people. I personally do not want to gang up on an invader.

                            The blue sentinels covenant is currently broken. The chance of getting an invade is slim to say the least and many times the invader is killed just as I enter the world. Blue orbs are badly in need and most definitely need to be included in the upcoming dlc.

                            • Manual Invasion13 Sep 2016 13:26  

                              From my experience it seems that using a red eye orb (or for that matter a cracked red eye orb) will put you into a queue to invade as either blue or red. Most of my experience is as long as you have the correct covenant badge you enter as a blue.

                                Some advice find some one willing to jump off the edge at another London (fastest way to die) when in the covenant to farm for your rewards pay them for incentive <br/>

                                  Here i am at the cleansing chapel bonfire at lvl 45 with a +4 heavy cathedral knight greatsword waiting, and waiting, and waiting.<br/><br/>This covenant was bad on day one, now it's even more of a joke, nobody uses the way of white so may as well get rid of this covenant alltogether from.<br/><br/>I still think this is the best soulsborne to date, yet like every game this one has many issues.<br/><br/>The worst thing about this is how they took steps back instead of improving, why get rid of the blue orb? WHY?

                                  • I like Gank Spanking but..01 Aug 2016 20:40  

                                    Can this covenant give me players to fight that actually know what they're doing? Literally every Blue Sentinel i fight is just as bad as the host themselves. No point joining this covenant to protect people when you can't even kill a single guy on a 3v1 fight.

                                    • Effects of covenant20 Jul 2016 16:08  

                                      It says "Inexplicably Blue Sentinels will NOT be summoned to protect a player against invading Aldrich Faithful defending Anor Londo or Watchdogs of Farron in the swamps." There's anobvious explanation. This covenant is to protect against invaders. Those covenants are not invading they are protecting from trespassers, so really its the host who is invading

                                      • No reward23 Jun 2016 21:52  

                                        When I was summoned to defend a way of blue member, they had already killed the invader and I received the victory message. However I did not receive the proof for the victory. This has happened many times and it may be worth noting.
