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.

      You ppl had 2 simple choices: either stop making excuses for this lazy, umbalanced and asinine system and force fromsoft to fix all the wrongs, or get your asses ready in the next generation.

      Guess what happened.

        Does covenant progress carry onto ng+ or does it reset? I’m aware things like the rewards can’t be obtained twice but per say you did 16/30 in dark moon knights then went to ng+1 for more souls would it still be at the progress of 16/30 or just 0/30? I’m just wondering because I’m not willing to test it out.

            Does changing covenants reset your progress in other covenants? Like let's say I'm level 1 in Aldrich Faithful and I want to switch to Farron Watchdogs, will Aldrich Faithful go back to level 0 when I equip Farron Watchdogs covenant item?

              Most of the covenants rewards are not that hard to solo/offline farm, Vertebrae shackle is the hardest by far, it has insane low chance to drop from carthus skeletons. i recommend just do PVP, which what i did and it's way more faster than solo farming. there are a lot of people that still playing multiplayer so PVP is still far from dead.

                If you ever want to get covenant stuff, then install the cinders mod because the covenant system in DS 3 is completely f*cking bulls*** and the items you get are nowhere near worth the amount effort the game demands out of you. Not only is the PvP unbalanced as all hell with everyone being able to gank you the **** up from sun up to sun down but even the PvE method is ridiculously tedious. Literally a 0.8% drop rate for all items, which means you could spend an entire week killing hundreds of enemies non-stop and barely get a handful of covenant items.

                If you were going to be this f*cking half-assed with the covenants then you shouldn't have bothered adding them to the game, Fromsoft!

                    Isn’t it crazy how this game which has the laziest effort put into its covenants is also the one that demands the most effort from players to rank up and gain all rewards? In the first game there were 3 covenants that required 30 of their respective items to be offered to gain all the physical bonuses and 2 of them required humanity which is an easily accumulated resource. After that you had bonus effects like spell buffs if you wanted to stay with that covenant. DS3 is a great game but it had some of the most ball dropping lazy design decisions put into it.

                      Are there any covenants that reward non-members their respective item for killing the members/invaders? Would be a lot easier to get the rewards/trophies if From wasn't so stingey about how those are given out.

                        Do covenant items transfer to ng+ ( if i gave in 10 shackles then went into ng+ and gave 20 would if give the warmth pyro)

                          I see so many conflicting information about this. If I give for example 4 covenant items to a covenant then come back later to give 6 more do I get the reward? Or do I have to give 10 exactly without reloading the area? If i get the first reward then leave and come back later do I need to give 20 more or 30 more to get the next reward?

                            They could remove all the covenants in this game and nobody would care. Even bloodborne handled covenants better.
