Covenants in Dark Souls 3 allow the player to ally with certain factions within the game to gain access to special items, abilities, or mechanics, especially during online play. To join a Covenant, the player character must equip one of several Covenant insignias discovered throughout Lothric. Select one of the links below for more detailed information regarding each Covenant.

        for the darkmoon and blue sentinels covenants

        if you have a white or red soap stone marked on the ground you CAN and will still be summoned to defend a way of the blue

        only reason i say this is because im sure i read on here somewhere you cant be summoned to help if a sign is down - they may have patched it

          It really bothers me that some rank 2 covenant rewards have upgrades that are non-covenant items. Great Lightning Spear is outclassed by the transposed Sunlight Spear. Darkmoon Blade fits into miracle builds way worse than the much more easily obtained Lightning Blade. The Wolf Ring has + versions that aren't covenant related. Aside from fashion or achievements/trophies, there's not really a reason to try to reach these ranks. And then there's Archdeacon's Great Staff and Man Grub's Staff, both of which require very strange builds to get any kind of use out of them, and function exceedingly poorly with certain spells.

            I know covenant ranks do not reset, but do they reset progress to the rank you had when you switch to, say, Way of Blue to help out our DMB brothers?

            Or when you go into new game plus?

            Example: I am rank one in moundmakers and it's the last darned thing I need for the pyro trophy. But I burned out after DMB farming, so I just said meh six months ago, but now I'm back.

            As an FYI, these covenant requirements for platinum are the worst. I did DS1 and DS2 with far less tedium than this, and it's not like I haven't done my bit multiplaying!

              Just saying, it could be cool to have a Carthus Gravewarden covenant that works similarly to the Gravelord covenant from DS1. Maybe the covenant "shrine" could be in Wolnir's bossroom. When you equip the Carthus Gravewarden covenant, it causes a bunch of white-eyed Carthus skeletons (the big ones that wear hooded cloaks and have damaging rolls) to be added to the world of a random player(s) (scaled to be noticeably stronger than the rest of the enemies in the area). It also, like the Gravelord Covenant, would add a summon sign to confront the Gravewarden, and, upon entering the Gravewarden's world, either you would defeat them, halting the "incursion" into your world, or they would defeat you, and get a "Dust of the Conquered" item. "Dust of the Conquered" would also have a very, very, very low drop chance from Irithyll Slave enemies.

              The first reward tier would be the "Carthus Pitchring", which increases auxiliary effects on weapons at the cost of lowering damage absorption, and the second tier would be "Wolnir's Fury", a pyromancy that imbues the player's weapon with a large amount of dark damage (better spellbuff conversion rate than any other weapon buff), at the cost of also draining their HP gradually while the buff is active.

              The lore explanation would be that, in order to comfort Wolnir in the abyss and honor his legacy, players attempt to conquer the worlds of other players in his name.

                I need just a few of the covenant items for Platinum. Would someone able to trade for the Wolf Ring, Warmth, and Darkmoon Blade/Ring? I have Sacred Oath, Great Lightning Spear, Great Deep Soul, and the Obscuring Ring if anyone needs those. PSN: Dragonfire2323

                • 01 Apr 2017 04:59  

                  Can someone trade me the wolf ring and warmth pyromancy? I will trade absolutely anything or help in any way possible. I have id 410 and the drop rate is absolutely *****

                    Covenant just sucks big time compared DS1. Lore wise, reward wise, mechanic wise. Covenant in DS1 have different purpose

                    Forest Hunter for group PVP. Blade darkmoon to avenge anyone that kill sun goddess waifu. Gravelord servant if you want more great PVP interaction by become miniboss in the game. Path of Dragon i you want rewarded fair duel 1vs1. Sunlight covenant for co-op and helping people. And more

                    • 28 Mar 2017 05:04  

                      So we got 3 area defender covenants, 2 identical host defender covenants, and no dragon covenant replacement. Does FromSoft just hate people who do pvp or what?

                        ahhhhh ****** i ONLY need darkmoon blade for dark souls 3 100% trophy :( but IMPOSSIBLE it took 3 hour for being summoned in dat covenant and it took 2 hours to farm ONE of them :| MAY THE SUNBRO GUIDE YOUR WAAAAAAAAAY

                          Is there any way that I can change the appearance of my character without joining Rosario's fingers? I really want to join the Warriors of sunlight but I realize that I had made a mistake when making my character's appearance. Maybe you can give her the pale tongues without joining the Covenant or you can quit a covenant and join another one?
