Covenants in Dark Souls 3 allow the player to ally with certain factions within the game to gain access to special items, abilities, or mechanics, especially during online play. To join a Covenant, the player character must equip one of several Covenant insignias discovered throughout Lothric. Select one of the links below for more detailed information regarding each Covenant.

Lower: A * 0.9 - 10
Remarks: Also affects Warrior of Sunlight and Mound Makers
Way of Blue (Auto) B : Host's Level
Upper: B * 1.1 + 10
Lower: B * 0.9 - 10
Remarks: Affects Blue Sentinels and Blades of the Darkmoon
PvP Dark Spirit Invasion C : Invader Level

      ***** this game. I can’t believe I have to actually do PvP to get achievements but not just a little but a 120 *****ing times. PvP is impossible for my build not to mention I’m reall high SL getting higher like around 140 and I never eat summoned for blades of the Darkmoon. This fuc-king sucks.

        So where do people usually put down summon signs if they want to actually get summoned for jolly cooperation?

              Hey guys, I am SL 160 here and farming is taking too long. If anyone's around my level we could boost for the pvp items together. Thanks! Psn: oOLarimoreOo

                So it seems the maximum level you want to be if you're anticipating a SL 120 pvp meta and want to have fun in all the different Convenants is SL 132. The biggest limiting factor on that level is territory invasion covenants (Watchdogs, Aldrich Faithful) with a 1.1*(Host Level) formula as the maximum level possible. Invasions have a 0.9*(Invader Level) formula, but you could technically be SL 133 to invade a 120 player, but that puts you out of the territory invasion sweet spot. Sorry if it seems silly to do the math but this actually helps a fair bit for caster-melee builds (specifically my dex-int build) since we need to hit 60 in int or faith to really get some damage out of our spells but still have to points in vitality-endurance-attunement area.

                  You people don't get it at all!!! Its not about farming or trading!!! Its about getting you *** online and collecting the covenant reward items! If you can't do that then you simply DON'T deserve the trophies! PSN: wiggedy wack

                    Can anyone explain to me the reasoning behind covenants that exclusively invade in one place? For example, Aldrich Faithful/Watchdogs of Farron. It only makes the areas covered to be impassable by someone playing on the meta level. And Farron Swamp is not exactly forgiving with the Ghru and the constant poison to begin with, the route to Anor Londo is practically impossible due to being chaininvaded (it happened to me that I had 5 invasions one after the other, the only way I survived because I played with a fucking legend. Whoever you are, random sunbro who'se summon sign I found after the Pontiffs bossroom, thank you) and having to deal with the silver knights too. Well, technically I didn't survive, because at the I simply jumped off a ledge but you get my point. So what is the covenants purpose other than making an area suck almost as much balls as Sens Fortress of Bullshit?

                        Anyone looking to go for platinum with me? I need to get the sunlight medals, the swordgrass for the wolf ring, the vertebrate shackles for warmth, the darkmoon ring and darkmoon blade and the obscuring ring. Invading each other for the items might do the trick in a couple of hours.

                          So I've farmed two covenants to Rank 2 in about eight hours total using the following method. I would put on all of the farming gear + 99 luck, but not use any coins. Then I would alternate between hard resets via coiled sword fragment, and soft resets via resting at the bonfire. Each time I finished a run, if I got a drop during that run or the one before it, I would rest at a bonfire, otherwise I would use the coiled sword fragment. So far I've gotten about one drop or more every ~3-4 runs with the exception of one stretch where I had a 20-minute dry spell. This seems to be a great way to farm covenant items from their respective enemies without having to try to rely on getting summoned.

                            I find covenant item rewards more often without any but the base and luck. Seems like it would stop it from spitting out all the common drops. Then again this prob wrong since you can't get a lot of drops from some enemies. Red eye lothric by dancer gave me a full set armor, sword, and 2x embers once with 315 id

                              Lots of missed oppertunities for covenants in genral IMO. Why aren't there more items to get? Wh not get consumables/rare times every 5 items that are given in? After you've collected all the items from the covenants there is no good reason to stay with a covenant... except for the covenant mechanics of course... : /
