      For some reason when I use this and then use the Sunlight Straight Sword's weapon art "Oath of Sunlight", the weapon art raises AR by a measly 6 points. When I use Oath of Sunlight THEN Sacred Oath, it drops AR by 6 points. So, if you are looking to make a Sun bro type Co-op build like I have and want to use the Sunlight Straight Sword, best to just avoid this spell.
      It seems Sacred Oath has a larger AoE (not entirely sure) but the nerf you'll potentially give to yourself of 6 points as well as the buff of only 6 points is not worth the attunement slot. You can buff your co-operators all the same by simply using your weapon art.
      Safe to say I am relatively dissapointed but for a build not using the Sunlight Straight Sword, this miracle could potentially be a powerful PvE co-op buff!
      I don't imagine it to have much effectiveness in a PvP setting.

        Generally nor worth using in a casting build since casting extra spell with either mach or surpass the extra damage dealt for its fp cost. It's also pretty slow thus risky for mid battle casting.

          idk why but i offered 30 medallions of sunlight and the game gave me the other item but it didnt give me the sacred oath miracle, i really want this for my build but i cant get it anymore. Anyone on ps4 willing to give? (Psn is Ice_Demon2003) would be greatly appreciated.

            The only diminishing return this suffers from in PvP is the absorption. The damage boost is 100% active in PvP, no diminishing returns. Cause there is no way I'm getting 1124 AR on my Buffed Lothric Knight Greatsword and two shotting people for 1200-1400 damage if Sacred Oath wasn't fully working.

              This seems to boost the power of spells as well. I noticed it increased the damage on my way of white corona and emit force by about 20-30 points

                I noticed something strange, iam using axe (warcry weapon buff), with Sacred Oath + Pontiff right eyes ring look like when pontiff ring is activated turns off the sared oath buff. Iam not sure, the Sacred oath starts to blink when ever Ring buff is out, maybe 3 kind of dmage buff cannot be applied. Can some1 test this ?

                  Raises all types of damage by 5% for PvP. Does not raise it by 10%.

                  Sunlight Oath raises the damage more on-paper, but in PvP the actual boost is only 2.5% over starting damage.

                    The Sunlight Straight Sword weapon art casts the same spell, the only difference is that it lasts 45 seconds instead of 60 no matter what you do and it costs 45 FP instead of 65. So with the miracle you can have Lingering Dragoncrest Ring +2 for about 24 more seconds.

                      Does Sacred Oath give 10% AR and 10% absorption even while using an infused weapon?18 Sep 2016 16:24  

                      Considering that weapon spell buffs can't be used on infused weapons, does the same logic apply in this scenario?

                        Doesn't stack with "anything"30 Jun 2016 07:17  

                        Sunlight oath overwrites sacred oath, so no, sacred does not stack with anything.

                          Who was the "faithful first knight" refered to in the description? We know that likely the firstborn=Nameless King and the dragonslayer=Ornstien, but i dont recall anyone who fits the bill of the first knight very well. My best guess is Artorias, if anyone has anything else please comment.
