Sunlight Medal is a Multiplayer Item in Dark Souls 3.

Sunlight Medal

A medal received by members of the Warrior of Sunlight covenant for victory over the final foe when summoned. The summoner also gains the same medal.

The medal, engraved with the holy symbol of the sun, is slightly warm and reminds one of the great honor of a shared victory.


Sunlight Medal Usage



Ranks and Rewards

  1. 10 Sunlight Medals - Sacred Oath
  2. 30 Sunlight Medals - Great Lightning Spear



Sunlight Medal Locations

  • Obtained by successfully assisting someone as a gold phantom or by receiving help by a gold phantom.
  • Can be gained by killing a host as a red phantom while having the Warrior of Sunlight pledge equipped. 
  • Will be granted if you invade as any Covenant and another red phantom is present with Warrior of Sunlight pledge equipped and the host is defeated.
  • Will not be awarded for killing a red phantom invader.
  • Drop from Lothric Knight (Very Rare).
  • One medal can be lootet from a corpse near sunlight altar (once per playthrough). From the corpse you can see the boss fog from Dragonslayer Armour.



  • Offline/PvE farming as a sorcerer: One of the fastest methods to farm the Sunlight Medal is at the Lothric Castle bonfire. You need 60 INT, +9 Court Sorcerer's Staff, Magic clutch ring, Young Dragon Ring, Bellowing Dragoncrest Ring, and Soul Stream spell. Note that the staff does not need to be fully upgraded so that, if you decide to re-spec, you do not need to waste a Titanite Slab. To boost item discovery, you can equip Symbol of Avarice (mimic's head), Covetous Gold Serpent Ring, Crystal Sage's Rapier, and Rusted Gold/Rusted Coin. The key is to one-hit two Lothric Knights near the bonfire with Soul Stream. Here are the steps:
    • Start at the FAR END of the bonfire, this prevents the knight near you to walk away as soon you get up from the bonfire.
    • Then, cast Steady Chant and then use Rusted coin before moving away from the bonfire (so that the knight does not start to walk away).
    • Approach the knight and cast Soul Stream. Make sure you align your spell so that it fully hits both knights. This can be done by standing on the steps, and a bit to its right side (when facing the knight) so that you are almost at the edge of the carpet.
    • You can repeat these steps one other time before the effect of Rusted Coin runs out. Meaning this method gets you approximately 4 kills/minute.

      In NG I used Symbol of Avarice, Sage Rapier in off hand and Gold Serpent Ring for 310 base. It took 3 hours to farm 30. As a Faith build I couldn't wait till NG+. I used Lothric Castle Bonfire, heading left I killed 3 Knights/Priests and returned to the Bonfire in under 1m. The name game is speed and efficiency. I waited till I was strong enough to backstab and kill them in 1 hit, the last guy still had to be 2 hit. Keep in mind Spook or Slumbering Ring is a must to do it quickly. During the last 15 I stocked up on Rusted Coins (360 Discovery total) which normally ran out as the last Knight died.

        Easiest covenant item to farm. I have 30 luck. Used symbol of avarice, sage rapier, and coventous gold serpent ring +3. Had 20 in less than an hour.

          If you get summoned to help with a boss as a Sun Bro, and you die but the boss dies after you, you still get a Sunlight Medal as long as the boss dies before you are sent back to your world.

            If you are having problems with the knights, the pyromancy Rapport (only need 10 INT + Plus the intelligence ring that boosts it by 5) will cast them into attacking other enemies on sight so you can wail away on them without them attacking back. It makes it easier if you want to go for more knights in the area vs just the 1 by the bonfire in Lothric Castle.

              I had a str character just for the achievements, all the others stuck at some SL for PVP... and noticed by NG+ that I didn't do the Sunbro covenant on that char :( My farming tactic: Location: Lothric Castle bonfire, the first 2 knights Build & Equipment: str 40, typical item find equipment + Lothric Greatsword + Lightning clutch ring + Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring. Go for 2 first knights, both with backstabbing and immediate strong attack. With the Dragoncrest Ring it's an incredibly mindless action. They don't react even when you run into them. Each run is about 30 seconds, 2 knights killed. The only thing to worry about is to remember is to use a coin every 2 runs. I experimented with buffing + probably a hornet ring would be better, but I didn't have one on the character atm + this build was viable and needed so little attention that I could legitly read a book during farming.

                  Farming Lothric Castle Bonfire the first time I arrived at it, and killing only the single knight by the door, with Shield of Want in Left hand, Silver & Gold Serpent Rings, Symbol of Avarice, and Pyromancy in Right Hand, switching Right weapon to Crystal Sage's Rapier as soon as the knight was defeated, I got all 30 Sunlight Medals by the time I had 2.2 million souls. I also got 39 Titanite Chunks, maxed out my Embers (forgot to store them), almost marked out my stored Large Titanite, 50+ each of Lothric Swords, Knights Crossbows, Shields & Lothric Knight Sets, and reached level 162,

                    A faster PVE farm is just at Lothric Castle bonfire. Rest facing the door, run to the knight, throw great chaos fire orb, run back to the bonfire, throw it again when the knight is standing at the bonfire, pick up the drop and rest to reset.

                      UHHHH the last achievement I need for platinum is the miracle one... the only character who's close to it just needs GLS... too bad it is also the only character I leveled past 120. F_____________ck me. Not looking forward to the grind... but at least I don't need to farm for Darkmoon blade anymore.

                        I've no idea where this information about Sirris giving you two medals after defeating Creighton and Hodrick came from, but I got nothing from her in neither of those events, and unless I'm missing something, why would she even give them? She's a member of the Blades of the Darkmoon, not the Warrior of Sunlight.

                            that farming idea is great. First you farm then respec into a build you want with the sunlight miracles and sword and armour. You will be solaire

                                  jesus christ, these things are harder to get than the ears nowadays. In my new character about 60ish I've already obtained enough ears from Blue Sentinel to achieve rank one before arrive at Irithyll. It seems no one likes jolly coop now, whenver I want to coop a boss no one summons me. If I want invasions I couldve just go for Aldritch, Watchdog or Fingers.

                                    Siris doesn't give you one if you complete her quest while having it equiped. Confirmed after 3 different characters.

                                      This farming method is not working anymore. And that's too bad for me, because my connection is always too poor to participate in co-op, and I really want the Lightning spear for my faith build...
