Aldrich Faithful

Aldritch Faithful

"The holy symbol of the Cathedral of the Deep, and crest of those who see beyond fire to the age of deep waters. Equip to pledge onself to the Aldrich Faithful covenant.

The faithful ensure that Aldrich, Devourer of Gods, remains undisturbed, by taking the form of loyal spirits and hunting down those who would trespass the ruined cathedral.

Summoning takes place automatically while this is equipped."

Aldrich Faithful is a Covenant in Dark Souls 3.The covenant can be gained by equipping the item Aldrich Faithful which is obtained from the Irithyll of the Boreal Valley. While a member of the Covenant, faithful phantoms are blue with a red tint. Will be summoned randomly to defend around the Anor Londo area.


Aldrich Faithful Information

  • You must obtain the item: Aldrich Faithful and equip it.
  • In Irithyll of the Boreal Valley, from the Pontiff Sulyvahn bonfire, proceed straight through the door, left up the stairs and right through the valley of dead giants and into the door at the far end. Immediately on your left is a wall that can be struck to reveal a ladder. Descend the ladder and fight the two Sulyvahn's Beasts that guard Archdeacon McDonnell, who will be located in the north-west corner of the room.




Effects of covenant

  • Faithful phantoms are blue with a red tint.
  • Will be summoned randomly to defend around the Anor Londo area (you don't have to be in that area to be summoned).
  • If the covenant symbol is flashing-white in your screen, it means you're searching for an intruder.
  • The Matchmaking Formula is Covenant Dependent:

Condition Min Max
Territorial Invasions by: Watchdogs of Farron or Aldrich Faithful Host - 20 - (Host * 0.2) Host + (Host * 0.1)


Rank Requirements

Players can increase their rank in the covenant by offering acquired Human Dregs Items to Archdeacon McDonnell in the shrine behind the Illusory Wall in Irithyll of the Boreal Valley. These can be acquired via the successful invasion of other players whilst wearing the covenant item or as a drop from the Deacons in Anor Londo & around the Pontiff Sulyvahn bonfire. (Note: invasions using the red eye orb while wearing the covenant item will not yield you a Human Dreg. You will obtain a pale tongue.) The rank requirements are additive, meaning you only have to earn a total of 30, not 10 and then another 30, to obtain all covenant rewards.

      Was invaded by 2 of these guys in the area after pontiff. I still have no idea if they were human players or not because they're names were NPC-ish and i just thought they were regular NPC invaders until I saw lag and very much human movement. Killed both of them, miracilously. Since i used the greatsword one guy always rolled through my attacks. Had to parry for once. Glad that worked out

        I'm trying to complete my low sl low weapons run. I'm sl15 with +2 weapons. I was farming stuff in the Undead Settlement. I had the Aldrich Faithful covenant equipped, because I still need to get some Human Dregs. I know that I'm not in the level range for that covenant, but I said to myself that I still could maybe get summoned once in a while. It never happened except today, but I was summoned twice in a row in the Crucifixion Woods instead. There was this kind of fight club going on. The host of ember was really strong and way better than me. When I died I got summoned a minute after in the same area with the same host again.
        I would like to understand how can I be summoned in the Crucifixion Woods with the Aldrich Faithful covenant equipped (and I checked twice to make sure of it). I'm playing on PC via Steam, if it changes anything.
        Thanks for your time fellow players!

            Aldriches being dumb and hitting walls is just the stupid meme of a stupidier community. Don't be fooled, this covenant is worth your time if you want to fight ganks with allies by your side. Like sunbros, but for invaders.

              I know how weird this is to say, but... I've been reported by so many Chinese Aldrich faithful sweats just because they didn't like the way I was playing. Nothing ever happens though.

                Okay but why are Aldrich faithful killing other Aldrich faithful and invaders ? Do you get pale tongues from it ? No ? Then why ?

                  I remember that whacky time when the homeward miracle boss invasion glitch surfaced and I used it to enter host’s worlds as a glitched Aldrich Faithful who was allied with the hosts like a summon but could attack other faithfuls despite being one myself. Hilarious times man.

                    Hey Im in Aldrich covenant and invaded some tresspasser but dark spirit (red one) attacked me instead of tresspasser then returned to home what kind of trickery is that? Also From shoulve used more colors I cant decide which is friend or foe. The most interesting covenant ever maybe ever.

                      Say whatever the f you want, but no blue is better than an aldrich. Neither as a player nor as a person.

                      At least we didn't utterly destroy the dark souls community with crybabies who can't make 2 steps without 2 or 3 dudes rolling the red carpet.

                        Invasions in post-Pontiff are soooo fun, especially when you do multiple runs and see the same Aldrich Faithful invade with you. Last night, one Aldrich named Maurice and I ended up finding each other over a ton of invasions (SL60+6), and we developed a sort of strategy where he'd chase the host up the stairs, and as they were coming out the top, I'd pop a Chaos Bed Vestiges from behind the stairwell. Ended up knocking three hosts off that way, and one died in two hits after Maurice had damaged them. It was the most fun I've ever had as an invader, and I hope they find this and know they're the dream co-invader. <3

                          How to tame an Aldrich casul. With the power of the pkcs, they fear the sight of it and they should. Cause those brain dead morons can’t stand the thought of dying to pkcs or the taste of dung pies that come after. Once you tame those casuls go and wreck the scrubs you originally came to murder, let the kills quench the thirst of the pkcs.

                            Me, a normal dark spirit: This is a host
                            Aldrich: Yup
                            Me: And both of us want him dead.
                            Aldrich: Yup
                            Me: So if that’s the case then it would benefit us both if we work together.
                            Aldrich: That makes sense to me.
                            Me: So team up with me.
                            Aldrich: *mindlessly attacks other invaders*

                                Most aldritches and watchdogs are far too retarded to cooperate with. Eliminate on sight, get a free estus refill, profit

                                  The wiki says that it can only invade in the post pontiff area, but I've been putting it on and getting invasions throughout the world. I've gotten invasions in the swamp and in archdragon peak.

                                    Ok, i had the intention of being an "evil" guy by invading a lot in this spot as a member of this covenant. But with so much cringy sht from every host that isn't alone, i ain't so sure about invasions being something "evil" to do.

                                      As a solo host, I go there waiting for being invaded. I take it as a training for invasions for managing duels and ganks.
                                      So yeah, I am this kind of player who doesn't care about the progression of the game and trap invaders for fights, but at least I am doing a solo gank ^^
