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.

      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!

            I can't stand wasting embers, souls and time just so invaders can get their kicks and/or covenant items, and it's hilarious to get angry messages for disconnecting on them. I love it, and I waste as much of their time as possible (trolls trolling trolls). Haven't needed one of these yet. Stay salty, ladies and gentlemen.

              I knew there had to be something wrong with a game so good... so you get invaded by 2 people and you have no Estus Flasks. What do you do? Lose your humanity because of bad luck? It's dumb, it's unfare, and I'm glad I read this before I started playing alot. I guess I'll just bend over in that situation.

                So, in order to fix the bug you have to get to the next NG+. And because you are banned you can't summon phantoms at all. SO HOW IN THE HELL ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO BEAT BOSSES LIKE SOC AND THE TWIN PRINCES IN ORDER TO BEAT THE GAME?!

                  Can you get banned for using mimic in area after pontiff bonfire, not sponed one, the one that on the second floor for attacking invaders (leading it near the entrance, using undead hunter charm for it to fall asleep, resting at bonfire, mimic at the same spot where you left it, use ember, use seed of tree of giants, wait for invader, aggro mimic buy hitting it with a fist, always have undead hunter charm to calm it down, watch or help mimic kill invader,use undead hunter charm to make it fall asleep, use warmth to heal mimic,calm it down ( use hidden body spell) make it stop attacking you after waking up, repeat until you out of undead hunter charm, rest at bonfire, you have your own mimic that will become the bane of invaders existence.)?

                    Baning someone for disconnecting in a game where player can literally throw dung pies at your corpse while applauding (not to mention ability to leave items while doing patches squat), not to mention when you're stuck alone in the arena, and yeas you can get banned for leaving "area" that gives you badges as reward.

                      I've then soft banned today and I don't have found one ring things. I've played for 500+ hours only the get a ban from a game that doesn't know how to repair its servers up. Thanks, from software. I can't even get another ring.

                      • 04 Nov 2016 09:19  

                        422 total hours in game, about 200 hours after initial ban, used the circlet, on NG++++++. A new one never respawned. So I can safely say, one never respawns.

                          Anyone help me out here? I've just been banned for the first time, but I don't have one in my inventory? Never been banned before, so I know for certain that I have never used it. Checked the grave in the Cemetery of Ash, but there was nothing there. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

                            Love seeing all here people in he chat who realize they disconnect frequently yet ***** when they get punished for not considering how bad it is to summon someone for a boss and have them DC as you enter the fog wall. Or they get invaded because they decided to summon and guess what your phantom is useless because they are either too leggy or they DC. If you don't have a stable Internet connections don't *****ing play online
