Aldrich Faithful is a Covenant in Dark Souls 3.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 Information

 

Joining

  • 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.

Rank Requirement Rewards

      That funny moment when you pop as an AF and the host uses his black crystal and poof, back in your world ^^

        would be great if this were to tell you if you were supposed to kill the host or The Phantom's yet amazingly it doesn't well that was an awkward few matches followed by getting ganked every time I wound up back in that world

          I see most people complaining about Faithfuls have never invaded in their life. Here's an idea...next time you play, try invading at meta level in Pontiffs. Then come here and tell me how your experience was. Maybe that will make you shut the ***** up about how others play the game?

            Man I needed to stop and get a hazmat suit for reading these comments. Here's some advice for the two main groups I see.

            Crybaby Hosts: Just play this single, solitary zone offline if it bugs you that much. It's not a hard area, you can clear it in 5 minutes.
            Crybaby Aldritch Faithful: If you're invading by anything other than a red/purple soapstone, then honor is the first casualty of the fight.

              first invasion as an AF i was ganked by 3 dudes with the ring knight twin greatswords... pushed through and kept invading and had an incredibly varied and fun experience. Got 10 Dregs in about an hour. Yall are complaining too much. Gankers gonna gank, you just gotta get clever, wait for backup, and spam great soul dregs XD

                      How many can invade you at once? I was there, didnt use the dried finger but had three come in all at once

                      Which was weird because I didnt have any summons. Not sure why my world was so popular.

                        If its the host and a single invader I wouldn't mind it to be a duel as long as its 1on1

                        but...

                        If its the host with 2 to 3 phantoms and I'm the only one invading then its a waiting game. Knowing the area first and looking for the place to attack or set/do an ambush. If they use a seed just retreat go home its probably a fight you cant win.

                        Some invader tends to charge in even it 1:3 its pretty obvious they'll die.
                        4:2 or 3:1 isn't exactly honorable so you gotta know your environment.

                            This comment section is like the area between Aldritch and Pontiff, filled with absolute 100% toxic cancer. Everything about this part is fucking cancer.

                              Nah, if you invade, you are immediately 'scum' this isn't a duel arena, there is no honor. If people who are playing, play to mainly beat the game and perhaps test themselves in mainly pve strandards they are free to do so. But if you invade to counter them? You don't have any right to say shit, you die in a shitty way, you suck the fuck up and take the death, who the bloody gives a shit about how you died to four phantoms or some shit, gawd. Invading for anything other then dueling will get you this. You ask why? Either you are all complete retards or you really are obilvious, here I am being redudant but let me make it clear, Hosts don't care about you or your shitty invades, they will probably disconnect, be total assholes and cheese. They are, honestly, free to do so. But, Iet me be real here, Aldrich Faithful are pretty douchey, they deserve whatever they get when it comes too invading lmao.

                                Lol, it used to be that everyone on this page knew the AF struggle, now it seems it's run by all the ganker crybabies. :^D Try and invade as an Aldrich Faithful. Quit bitching and actually check why. Everyone used to complain how hard it is for AFs for a reason...

                                  Trying invading in pontiff and see the cancer we spawn into 90% of the time yourself... Literally every other fight is a gank, purples do whatever they fucking please and say "covenant roleplay", reds go hostile and attack on sight for no reason sometimes, hosts have their red/AF friends invade and decieve, some invaders for some reason befriend hosts to the point that they will literally refuse to fight (these retards usually end up ganked to death too... I'm all for being friendly, but do it WHILE invading), seed spammers, etc. This shit on a regular, probable basis makes you less inclined to be fun/kind. The issue is that with the playerbase kinda falling away for a while now, the majority of what is left are the tryhards and trolls which in turn deters late new players from pvp and keeps the cycle going.

                                    People in the AF covenant are the most obnoxious players I ever had to face in DS3.

                                    WHat is it about Territory defense covenants being filled with complete cancer?
