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.

      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 ^^

                    We re the ones who are hunting the guilty, not the fakemoon. What are they guilty for? Simple: for spreading toxicity throughout the community as much as the old one spreading the fog through demon's souls world.

                      I just had an aldrich faithful invade me and show me where to join the covenant before fighting me. It was so funny and wholesome and honestly made my day. Good to know that there are honorable, fun aldrich faithfuls out there even if it's usually not my covenant of choice

                        75% of faithfuls you’ll invade with will stand aside refusing to attack a host with another invader and although it comes from a good place they completely miss 2 crucial details. The host they feel sorry for and act so honourable with would never fight them solo if they had summons available, they will always gank the invaders if they have the means to do so. The other factor is that the game has not only 1 but two major locations for honourable duels, the pontiff arena made popular by the community themselves and an arena from the dlc that the developers set up themselves. Trying to turn invasions into something that’s already available in game kills the novelty and excitement of it all together and it’s painful to watch it happen.

                          Srsly, with all the mindless hate you spill to the members of this covenant, what do you expect them to do? You hate ds2 so much yet you do exactly what vendrick did back in the day: to take what doesn't belong to you.

                            Not a member of aldrich faithful and yet invading after pontiff = you picked the wrong house fool!

                            Seriously, what's so hard to understand? Dislike like a crybaby if you want, but if you ain't in the hood, you re in the hook.

                              The only reason I kill red invaders is if the host is in the way of blue and the invader is attracting sentinels and blades
