Blue Sentinels

Blue Sentinels

Faded sheepskin parchment depicting the Darkmoon and a sword. Equip to pledge oneself to the Blue Sentinels covenant.

When a member of the Way of Blue is threatened by a dark spirit, the Blue Sentinels, in compliance with an ancient accord, assume the form of blue spirits, and help to root out the leader.

Summoning takes place automatically while this is equipped."

Blue Sentinels is a Covenant in Dark Souls 3. The covenant can be gained by equipping the item Blue Sentinels which is obtained from Anri of Astora and Horace the Hushed. While a member of the Covenant, Blue Sentinels will be summoned to help you defend against invaders.


Blue Sentinels Information




  • When a Darkmoon/Blue Sentinel spawns, a floating red eye will appear locating an invader or Blue spirit, depending on whether the player is an invader or Blue spirit. This floating red eye that locates invaders was previously a miracle in Dark Souls II, called Unveil.


Effects of covenant

  • Blue Sentinels will be summoned into the worlds of those in the Way of Blue to defend them from hostile invaders. This behavior is shared with the Blades of the Darkmoon
  • Inexplicably Blue Sentinels will NOT be summoned to protect a player against invading Aldrich Faithful defending Anor Londo or Watchdogs of Farron in the swamps.
  • The Blue Sentinels phantom color is light blue.
  • If the Host of Embers enters a boss room, the Blue Sentinel will be rewarded with a Proof of a Concord Kept and be returned to their world. They will NOT remain to challenge the boss.
  • If the invader is killed by the giant with the greatbow (on the high tower) in the Undead Settlement, the Blue Sentinel will NOT be rewarded a Proof of a Concord Kept. However, they will still get the same victory message. 
  • The Matchmaking Formula is Covenant Dependent:


Condition Min Max
Summoning a White Phantom, Warrior of Sunlight, Mound-Maker or no covenant Host - 10 - (Host * 0.1) Host + 10 + (Host * 0.1)
Defending Summons of Blade of the Darkmoon or Blue Sentinel Host - 20 - (Host * 0.2) Host + (Host * 0.1)


Rank Requirements

This Covenant shares Ranks with the Blades of the Darkmoon. To rank up the player will need Proof of a Concord Kept. To acquire Proof of a Concord Kept a player must be summoned while having their Blue Sentinel badge equipped and successfully defeat an invading phantom. If the player defeats more than one invading phantom while summoned they will acquire more Proof of a Concord Kept. The player is sent home when all invaders are banished. They can also be received as a drop from Silver Knight in Anor Londo (Rare). 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
0 Initial None
1 10 Darkmoon Ring  (Grants 2 additional attunement slots.)
2 30 Darkmoon Blade (Miracle)



 To rank up the player must turn these into Company Captain Yorshka in Anor Londo. She is located in a tower across an invisible walkway near the first bonfire there.

      The problem isn't that the covenant punishes twinks with fully optimized endgame gear that invade in the first area, it's that even when you're invading 3 people by yourself they can still be summoned

        I don't know how to play this game because I got my overleveled friends to help me through the entire f-ing game because I suck at vidya, so I specced a quality build, equipped this covenant and slam my poise weapons into invaders 3-5 VS 1, so now I'm good at the game, a true Blue Sentinel. Can anyone help and tell me what a parried is though?

              So here I am standing like an idiot at sl25 with blue sentinels equipped, hoping to get summoned for like 30 minutes now with no luck, while getting tons of blue phantoms spawning and getting ganked whenever I invade.

                this wiki mixed up darkmoons and sentinels, this wiki says darkmoon are dark blue and sentinels are light blue while its actually the opposite.

                  What happens to the blues when a mound maker kills the hosts summons and wins, but the host is still alive? Do the get a reward? Do they get a victory message and no reward? or is it the same as when the host dies?

                    I'm actually trying to get the trophy Master of Miracle and Master of Ring, but the blade of the Darkmoon and the blue sentinels are just useless. And From software is just unfair woth the drop rate of the items. Am I wrong ?

                      I honestly don’t know why some invaders complain about getting ganked. When I invade, I do so specifically so I can fight against multiple opponents. If I want to duel, I go to a fight club or Undead Arena. Why would you invade when you’re looking for a duel? Covenant items can still be farmed from putting down your red soapstone at pontiff since there are still a ton of hosts looking to duel there. Embers can be farmed from co op or just pve. I just don’t understand the mentality against invading ganks.

                        If I am a member of the Blue Sentinels and I invade a player, do I get a proof of Concord if I kill the host?
                        Killing a host as an invading Sunbro does reward you with a sunlight medal.

                          I'm sorry but Blue Sentinel are the New version of the blade of the darkmoon. And yet people are complaining it's just a game we just need to adapt and trying to use\ know the environment to where we are batlelling.

                            Started farming Concords, i don't gank, f*ck this covenant. I cannot do this, its just exudes toxicity. I choose honor and etiquette over this. I guess farming Silver Knight it will be.

                              DS2 nailed it right: "The Blue Sentinels protect the weak"

                              In DS3, most are so helpless it flipped the script around, merely an annoyance to invaders while the host is actually the one protecting them from themselves.

                                has anyone talk to horace after reaching top covneant rank? i know that covneant alleigance carries over, so many maxing each covenant on ng may affect dialog on ng+?

                                  How does being summoned work exactly? Will being summoned as a sentinel not work if you have a summon sign on the ground? I ask because i sat around for 10+ minutes watching my covenant tablet next to my HP flash and nothing happened.
