Way of White Circlet is a Multiplayer Item in Dark Souls 3.

Way of White Circlet

Online play item. Restore the connection to other worlds.

Those who engage in unjust deeds when in contact with other worlds will lose their connection to them.

Way of White Circlets assume such sin as their own, but are found few and far between. Acting without honor will never be without risk. "


Way of White Circlet Usage

  • Restores the link to other worlds


Way of White Circlet Locations

  • A single one is given to all brand new characters, no matter what class has been picked.
  • A Way of White Circlet should spawn in-game an estimated 10-14 hours (in game), next to your coffin in the Cemetery of Ash, after being banned (Assuming you have already been banned once and used your first Way of White Circlet). However, it may take longer/shorter than the provided time from other end users as well.
  • You can hold up to 99 Way of White Circlets.



  • Very similar to the item in Dark Souls 2 which is called a Bone Of Order and most likely uses a similar penalty system.
  • Any player that disconnects during Online Interactions can be penalized, which includes;  The host, Summoned Phantoms and Invaders.
  • Penalty points are added when you disconnect from the session without dying and without successfully completing your objective such as killing the host, phantoms or a boss.
  • Closing the game itself while you're connected to another player will add penalty points. (Crashing is treated this way)
  • Losing internet connectivity will add penalty points.
  • Unknown if losing connection to the game server which results in being sent to the main screen adds penalty points. (Most likely does)
  • Using the Black Separation Crystal may add penalty points to your account, significantly less then illegally disconnecting would. See ongoing gamefaqs discussion:
  • Unknown if these penalty points ever decrease besides using the Way of White Circlet.
  • Points are accumulated per character basis.
  • There is a bug that doesnt allow the Way of White Circlet to spawn after 10-14 hours, unknown cause.
  • Player may still be summoned through covenant invasions.

      The number of invader tryhards pretending they love it when players disconnect is hilarious. Nobody believes you, so maybe stop pretending mmmk bye :)

        Am I one of the few that loves seeing a disconnect? Seeing that makes me feel like the host couldn't stand having a superior force in their game. Not nearly as good a feeling as catching a 3+ gank squad in a doorway and hearing the screams of agony... but a nice comfort nonetheless. Skeleton, next time you see that disconnect sit back and smile knowing you didn't kill the host but you sent him back to the title screen.

            I d/c just to ruin the fun of invaders, sure it takes me 1 min to get back into online mode but i do it for the greater good, the less fun invaders have the less likely they are to invade someone again. Been doing it since DS1.

              I don't enjoy pvp, and yes this is my first souls game. I have no desire to play co/op either. The idea of being punished for using embers and being further punished for having poor internet connection is ridiculous. I don't have enough time to waste on games none the less being invaded. I would be less hostel towards invasions if it have a no invasion zone when you were very close to main boses. No one likes to grind twice getting one for the price of three. Going to the bonfire, waiting to be found, (follow the prism stones I'm right here get your bright red behind over here allready)finally being found. Getting ready to take that first swing, then bam the crap internet disconnects resluting a soft ban isn't fun.

                If you don't want to lose anything while invaded, lead the invader to a bonfire and fight him there. At least if you lose you can immediately pick up the souls.

                  Has this been changed? I have quit out of the game loads of times because i didnt want to deal with an invader without even knowing there could be a penalty. I have never gotten ay warnings or been penalized. I only got to this page becaus i didnt understand what the item did.

                    cheats/hacks go trough the roof recently. I could invade all day without encounter even one hacker a few month ago. Now I find 2 in 1 hour. FROM should act and perma ban these people from their servers already. Let them play their game. And us ours.

                      Stop crying over invasions, here's the deal: you play online, you can co-op with phantoms but you can get invaded. Simple and fair, if you got noone to play with and whine over invaders then go offline, no problem

                        For the people who think that getting invaded sucks. I used to feel angry when someone invaded (and killed) me
                        But last days I've searching all the achievement and some of those request to invade, for that reason, many of us (invaders) are just searching our "quests". We don't want only to piss you

                          Here's why I don't like invasions. Say what you want... I, and many other people genuinely enjoy, helpful, positive, friendly co-op gameplay. Not everyone wants to compete in combat. Im sorry but I, and many others have no interest in competitive gameplay in DS. Many other titles separate the competitive aspect from the helpful one. I don't enjoy the combination of the two against my will. It's just not helpful at all. It wastes time and resources. Invaders frequently waste players time by running away and baiting them for extreme amounts of time. Im sorry guys I really have no interest in PVP, so I'll keep closing the game and using my coronas without a care. I have a few characters so Im never banned for more than 2 minutes lol. It's nothing personal, it's just not my cup of tea.

                              I wish there was a way for the people who don't want invasions to play offline somehow. They should really patch that in at some point.

                                "I want to play coop with my friends without getting invaded."
                                Maybe people don't understand until it's clearly worded to them so I'll try to explain.
                                Yes the souls franchise is fun to play, and even more fun to play with friends; I completely agree.
                                The problem comes when some people believe they deserve and have the right to play with their friends without getting invaded. The entire franchise is DESIGNED for the purpose of overcoming obstacles (and the feeling of accomplishment that comes after), rather than casual fun-time with friends. Coop is an option, but it is a PRIVILEGE, and not a right, and coop comes with the price of invaders. When you try to mitigate difficulty (by getting more health and coop) in a game that's entire purpose is to challenge you, then the game recognizes your actions and tries to challenge you in a different manner. Whenever you disconnect, you're doing a disservice to your own experience.
                                Anyways the system is super fair. You don't get invaded as much when embered without phantoms. The more phantoms you summon, the more likely you will get invaded. And invaders have unembered lower health with half the estus. This is literally the ONE GAME in the franchise where invaders have it the worst. Every card is stacked against them, more so than the previous games.
                                The devs clearly wanted there to be a price to pay for coop since it makes the game super easy, and the price is really miniscule.

                                  I like that most of the comments are balanced, in that you have people presenting (Vulgar yet) acceptable reasons to use it, and poeple presenting (Vulgar) reasons that people are not good at the game for using it. I invade as a mound maker a lot, and if I'm bothering the person then theres no reason for me to object to being sent home I wouldn't want some jackwad coming to take a dump on my experience. Really, I've personally only used this when people invade in the single worst areas imaginable (Shreks Swamp, Anor Londo, Bonezone, places where the invader can just wait back like an ACTUAL coward who needs to git gud) and before you claim that I need to git gud, here's some food for though. As an invader your objective is to kill me and steal my humanity/ember and get a covenant item. If I use this: you lose. Automatically. at least you didn't die or have a ton of your time wasted.

                                  In the words of every invader who came into somebodies world and got called a d*ck for messing up their game: "It's part of the experience and an integral component to the game" So if you're really that mad about something that is just as pertinent to gameplay as your precious red eye orb, how about YOU git gud? Git so Gud I can't send you home with way of white.

                                  I swear the invaders from DS3 are the sorest losers and sorest winners in the entire series.

                                    Does anybody know if you have to enter a new NG cycle for it to spawn? My internet is bloody awful and i frequently disconnect as a white phantom. I don't want to waste 10+ hours if i can't actually get the circlet on this cycle

                                      I'm kind of... dumbfounded... by the amount of people who can't take invasions. Y'all played Dark Souls 1 or Dark Souls 2 before, or are you newcomers to the franchise? Cause Online Play is a very integral part of this game, that you also *voluntarely* choose to partake in by using Embers.

                                      Seriously though, anyone who's played DS 1 and DS 2... in this game you've got the least to lose from being invaded, no?!

                                      DS 1... your humanity is gone, and all your liquid humanity left behind at the spot of your death. Since you need the stuff e.g for kindling, yeah, that's a bummer.

                                      DS 3... there's no kindling to begin with, just an etch of bonus HP you get from using "humanity" (ember). Really, now, whaddya complaining for exactly?

                                        I had gotten mine to spawn with 11 active in game hours, no resting at the bonfire, I killed a few bosses and invaders, it seems they shorten the timing on the spawn rate.. this was my 3rd ring to get.. so it is possible.. I'm NG7 so.. yeah.. just play and check the grave periodically and you'll get one!
