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 in Lothric Castle (2%)
  • One medal can be looted from a corpse near sunlight altar (once per playthrough). From the corpse you can see the boss fog from Dragonslayer Armour.

 

Notes

  • 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.

        Sunlight Medals and Proofs of a concord kept really shouldnt be farmed, unless you'd want to spend around 4 hours for 30 of each (had 515 Item Discovery)

          people are willing to engage in cooperation of farming, but not jolly cooperation of boss fighting. disappointing.

            I'm only at 12 so far after maybe 1.5 hours, but my tip for offline farming is make sure your item discovery is maxed out. Just respec at Rosaria and make a luck build with 99 luck, then put the remaining points into the minimum stats for whatever weapon/spell you want to use, and make sure you have the gold serpent +3, symbol of avarice and sage's rapier. You're playing a numbers game so the only two variables that matter are item discovery and how fast you can kill the lothric knights.

                Would love a video on that sorcery farming method, I'm at SL 202 +10 weapon NG++, and so the usual farming methods are not available to me due to me being in the deadland zone where there are very few people playing near me. I can't seem to get the angle right and am at my wits end here. Would love any advice.

                  Theoretically, could i farm these by beating Halflight along with a sunbro then reviving him and doing it again?

                        Do not even bother trying to farm offline, 3 hours with 400 item discovery and only ended up with 10. Just put yours summon sign in front of a relatively easy boss and just wait

                                              Fastest way I've found to farm this: Lothric Castle bonfire. Blessed Lothric Knight Greatsword, 24 str, 60 fth. LIghtning clutch ring + your item discovery setup. Run up to the first knight immediately and do a charge r2. You will probably trade with him, but you should be able to outpoise him and knock him into the ground. If you can't for some reason, wear heavier armor, even if you fat roll, because you won't need rolling. I was doing this in ng+7, so I needed to finish the r2 charge combo or drop the combo into another charged r2 while he was on the ground. Test the damage yourself and see what is faster. Do not go for the second knight, just return to the bonfire and repeat, you should be able to get at least 3 kills with just one rusted coin. I needed something like 17 medals and I got them in something like half an hour ~45 minutes.

                                                in lothric castel there's a knight next to bonfire, i farmed on him, around 2 hours of farming, maybe something more with 460 item discovery ( Symbol of avarice, gcr+3, crystal rapier, normal rusted coin, 40 base luck +5 hollow weapon). Around 300 kill for 30 medal 10% drop. To speed up the process, farm just the first guy not the spear knight, you lose overall time, to reach him, kill 2 priest and come back to bonfire.

                                                  People seem to go for lothric castle when farming. Fools! I put my summon sign in front of dragonslayer armour and farm at the dragon barracks bonfire. There is a knight to the left and around the corner that’s easy to kill. Immediately swap to crystal sages rapier in both hands as soon as you defeat it while wearing the symbol of avarice, covetous gold serpent ring, and using a gold rusted coin. While still using the same gear and remembering to immediately swap back to crystal sages rapier in both hands after killing knights walk right past the gate and the knight should aggro. Take him out how you will, if you have magic go back to the dragon bridge and the knight won’t go any farther. Then there’s the spear wileding knight, take him out too. You can then either go back to the bonfire and restart or continue to the sunlight altar and kill the knight that’s there too. And the best part is when you get summoned your relatively close and can put your sign back down quickly. I already got 19 medals this way and it’s only been an hour.

                                                    Using a Faith build, I simply equipped both miracle rings, lightning ring, serpent ring +3, yorshka chime. Kill the first Lothric with one lightning spear, skip the priest, and lightning spear the second Lothric, pick up both drops on the way back. Faith at 60. Other gears are avarice headgear and crystal rapier in the other hand. On NG.

                                                    • 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.

                                                          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.

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.

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,

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.

F_____________ck me. Not looking forward to the grind... but at least I don't need to farm for Darkmoon blade anymore.

                                                                                            There are 3 ways you can get these (in order to be rewarded Sunlight Medals, you must have the Warriors of Sunlight covenant equipped; there are exceptions that will be mentioned)(general note: options 1 and 2 require an internet connection and is recommended to be done around SL120-150 where most of the playerbase will be).

                                                                                            1. Invasions: if you got a knack for PvP, this isn't a bad idea. There are two possible ways to get Sunlight medals through PvP:

                                                                                            I. Red Eye Orb invasions are classic invasions (invade someone's world, and kill the Host), however you should note that Hosts and summoned Phantoms will most times use dirty or "dishonorable" tactics such as ganking, chugging, giant seeding or resummoning, especially post-Pontiff. You may occasionally invade a fight club if done at post-Pontiff (see II. below for more details).

                                                                                            II. If Red Eye invasions are too hard or unfair, use the Red Soapstone. Putting down the Red Soapstone is incentive for more "classy" and "fair" duels. If you Red Soapstone post-Pontiff, there's a good chance you'll be summoned to fight clubs, where a host sits back and summons an endless barrage of Dark Spirits and occasionally phantoms to fight each other. It is also unlikely the Host will actually fight you unless you start attacking them). The general rules of duels or fight clubs are:

                                                                                            i. No ganking (should be obvious because it's a duel).

                                                                                            ii. No attacking while duelists are buffing pre-battle (during battle is arguable).

                                                                                            iii. No healing, specifically no Estus (except Ashen, Ashen is fine), Divine Blessings, or Siegbraus (although use of Divine Blessings and Siegbraus is very rare because of the limited amount of the two items in playthroughs). Pretty much every other mean of healing is acceptable, such as miracles, Sun Princess Ring, blessed equipment, and life steal weapons/equipment. It is generally ok to use Estus if the other duelist does it first (but don't be the one to start it, alright?).

                                                                                            iv. Duel Charms are a controversial item and you should not use them. Duel Charms removes buffs from enemies (but does not remove Tears of Denial).

                                                                                            2. Co-oping for bosses: you can put down your White Soapstone in front of boss rooms to assist players in taking down bosses. End-game bosses like Pontiff, Aldrich, Yhorm, Dancer, Dragonslayer Armor, Twin Princes, and Nameless are good bosses to put down your summon sign for (you should note that the boss will have more health than usual and NGs can vary (you typically will not be summoned for NG+4 or higher)). Also, if you summon a Warrior of Sunlight to help you (or the Host has summoned a Warrior of Sunlight yet you aren't one), you will still get a medal as long as there is one Warrior of Sunlight alive and present by the time the boss dies (not including the Host).

                                                                                            3. Farming is the more tedious and time consuming option (but is optimal if you have too bad of a connection to play online, you're bad at/don't like PvP and/or co-op, or if your character's SL is too high (SL300+) and as a result matchmaking cannot find anyone). This splits into two possible ways:

                                                                                            I. Farming at the Lothric Castle bonfire is the easiest and possibly most rewarding way. You simply kill the knight next to bonfire, rest at the bonfire, rinse and repeat. This knight drops embers, large titanite, Lothric Knight armor pieces, Lothric Knight Sword, Lothric Knight Shield, and most importantly Sunlight Medals. It is recommended you have
                                                                                            i. Symbol of Avarice (for higher drop rate and soul gain).
                                                                                            ii. Crystal Sage Rapier (for higher drop rate) or,
                                                                                            iii. Shield of Want (for higher soul gain).
                                                                                            iv. Covetous Gold Serpent Ring (for higher drop rate).
                                                                                            v. Covetous Silver Serpent Ring (for higher soul gain).
                                                                                            vi. Max luck (doesn't affect drop rate that much though).
                                                                                            Note that the Crystal Sage Rapier and Shield of Want can stack with 2 in both hands (ex. Crystal Sage Rapier in left hand and another in right hand).

                                                                                            II. At Lothric Castle there is a body with a Sunlight Medal on it. It yields one Sunlight Medal per run. You could play NG, NG+2, NG+3, etc., but is not recommended because the enemies would eventually have god-like strength.

                                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                                  Managed to get around 8 medals (and over one million souls so I ain't even mad) in a the span of over 3 hours via farming the knight at the castle.

                                                                                                  Save yourself some valuable time and suffering and just chill outside the boss room of Yhorm and leave your summoning sign up.

                                                                                                  You'll probably get all 30 medals in a hour at peak hours.
