A lost Way of White miracle. Launches a white discus which slices into foes and returns to its conjurer. 

Long ago, when the imprints left by the gods were still deep, miracles of the Way of White existed alongside aureoles.

Those who yearned for the long-lost aureoles fully believed that they would return, one day.


Acquired From




  • The spell acts like a boomerang, returning to the player once the disc is tossed.
  • The damage is very poor, only doing about a 100+ damage on contact and even less when used on a none dedicated Faith build. The time it takes very the disc to come back is about a second or 2, leaving the opponent just enough time to get out of the way. The disc will also dissipate if it touches anything. Overall, the miracle has many problems and is considered by many to be the worst miracle in the whole game.
  • Two discs can be on screen at the same time.
  • Corona is the Latin word for "Crown".

      Seeing that patch 1.11, increased the speed (and maybe the damage?) of this miracle, I decided to test Way of White Corona on my pure 99 faith build. Wearing only Morne's ring and no other faith boosting rings, I was able to kill the Follower Soldiers in Ashes of Ariandel on NG with only 2 casts of WoWC. The damage was about 208 per strike and as long as they did not move from range (the javelin guys just stood there) it would come back to hit them for another 208, and i could cast 2 very quickly, stunning them and doing a bit over 800 damage. With the max cast speed (50 dex) I was able to cast these just as fast, if not faster than a regular lightning spear, but the fp cost is lower (23 vs 15). So with this patch, it would seem that on high faith builds (60+) this is a worthy tool to have during pve now.

        This is actually a very nice PvE spell. If you hit an npc at the max range of the disk you will get multiple hits with one disk. This also leads to medium to smaller enemies being stun locked, allowing for . Just need to space it correctly or it disappears :/ A feature where the 2nd input would stop the disk in place would be ideal.

          The lower level and high faith builds can have so much fun with this its very hard to use for sure but the best spells (utility spells I like to call them) take a lot of time to master

            I recommend this spell if you're gonna be under Level 45 that's when It does nearly the same damage to people online no matter the level and catalyst but low level people don't have much health and are usually weak to physical damage. Im running a white magic build w emit force its hella fun

              I can't think of anything to wear as a Krillin Cosplay....

              But on a side note...How many saiyans does it take to change a lightbulb?........................just one, but it takes 3 seasons and Krillin dies

                Nice to see that From are continuing their historic practice of making DLC spells either garbage or overpowered, with very little inbetween. In this case it's garbage.

                  Just fought Sister Friede and Gael destroyed the second phase whith this thing. It did moar then 1000 damage per hit and the disk did hit 4 times. Then i tryed it and it did
                  33 damage per hit with 60 faith... but damn Gael is a hero.

                    Mainly for PvE, but has some sneaky PvP uses in that the return hit can be used to cover your approach.

                    Really though, it's fantastic against stationary/slow moving enemies. Spaced correctly I am hitting 4x in one cast, doing about 3/4 the damage of a Sunlight Spear. This move only costs 15 FP and can make your FP:Damage ratio nuts on stationary targets.

                    In particular, it's super good against the tree enemies in the DLC.

                      So the whole trick to this miracle is that if you hit someone with it at max range the disk does repeated hits on them till it returns. As for PvP I could see some pretty cheeky tactics using it to cover yourself.
                      Even after learning the Disk does repeated hits inside of something the damage is still pretty poor except on a select few bosses where for some reason it does like triple damage.(Father Ariandel, maybe it has headshots?) It might not be as terrible if it stopped in the first target it hit and also didnt get destroyed by hitting terrain.

                        "Those who yearned for the long-lost aureoles fully believed that they would return, one day." Is it talking about the white rings from dark souls 1? And more importantly does it buff other miracles nearby? That would be nice for more co-op synergy.

                          So basically.. The White Rings that would appear randomly in Dark Souls 1 when someone actively used Miracles online.. We're throwing those around. Nice.
