Warrior of Sunlight

warrior of sunlight

An ancient talisman depicting a holy symbol bestowed upon the Warriors of Sunlight. Equip to pledge oneself to the Warrior of Sunlight covenant.

Warriors of Sunlight are brilliantly beaming co-operators who place their golden signatures to help those in need, for it is their duty to deliver a great conquest to their summoner.

Warrior of Sunlight is a Covenant in Dark Souls 3. The Warriors of Sunlight Covenant is found early in the game and unlocked by equipping an item. While a member of the covenant, helping other players will reward Sunlight Medals that can be used to rank up.

 

Joining the Warrior of Sunlight Covenant

  • You must obtain the item "Warrior of Sunlight" and equip it.
  • The item needed to join the covenant can be found in the Undead Settlement (map available).(video location)
  • To Find the item to Join: From the Undead Settlement Bonfire, head left, through the corpse-house towards the burning tree with undead worshipping around it. From here, head straight ahead until you reach another bunch of houses, at the end of the stairs going down. Keep going straight through the stone archway, and into the door of the first house ahead. The room has many hanging corpses. The item can be found by falling through the gap in the floor.

Effects of Covenant

  • The player's white summon signature will now be golden.
  • The player will shine with gross incandescence while summoned into another player's world.
  • Upon achieving one's purpose when summoned, (defeating a boss, or completing an area) the player (as well as the host) will receive (in addition to default rewards) a Sunlight Medal, which can be bestowed to the covenant altar to achieve higher ranking in the Warriors of Sunlight covenant.
  • Upon reaching a higher ranking, the player will receive a set gift (see Rank Requirements).
  • If invading with the Red Sign Soap Stone or the Red Eye Orb, your color will be golden with red hues mixed in.
  • Members of this covenant that invade have prioritization for hosts that already have an invader present.
  • You perform the "Praise the Sun" gesture rather then the default summon animation when summoned with the covenant item equipped.
  • 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)
Invasion from Warriors of Sunlight or no covenant Invader - (Invader * 0.1) Invader + 20 + (Invader * 0.1)

 

 

Rank Requirements

Bestowing Sunlight Medals to the sunlight altar, located in Lothric Castle until the next rank is achieved. 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. You can achieve these by helping another player successfully co-op a boss, with a successful invasion as a Sunlight Warrior or as a possible drop from Lothric Knights in Lothric Castle.

Rank Requirement Rewards
0 Initial None
1 10 Sacred Oath
2 30 Great Lightning Spear

 


To rank up the player must turn in the Medals at the Sunlight Altar, which can be found right before the Dragonslayer Armour boss fight in Lothric Castle. Facing the fog gate of Dragonslayer Armour, turn left and walk straight towards the broken segment in the railing (do not drop down!) At the end of the walkway, turn left again. There will be a ladder. Climb it, cross over the rooftop, and descend into the building. The altar will be right before the door that leads outside. Beware, there is a knight in the passageway leading to the altar from the building.

      Breaking news: local man praises the sun so hard he becomes grossly incandescent and makes the First Flame look like a burnt-out matchstick that spent a few hours going through a sewer system

      • Anonymous

        Y'know, this comment section is 90% solaire jokes and "praise the sun".


        Do all sunbros share a single brain cell? Yes.


        Is that a problem? No.


        Praise the Sun.

          Warrior of Sunlight Blortron, whoever he is, is my new hero. I was getting lost & killed in the Grand Archives when Blortron was summoned and he led me to all the shortcuts, all the treasure, and all the hidden fights, even killing a mound maker invader in honorable single combat despite there being three of us. Finally, he did all the tanking for the Twin Princes fight. This was a couple weeks back, but I will always remember losing sight of Blortron, hearing fighting and seeing health bars dropping, and coming around the corner to find that he just killed 3 gargoyles that I’d died to in a previous run. I wish that there were more warriors of sunlight like you you make the game amazing.

            If you wanna farm sunlight medals, than place your red signs as warriors of sunlight outside pontiff sulyvahns boss room (aka irythyll fight club) or place your co op summon signs outside of nameless king's boss area. That's how I farmed these.

                  After beating the game on my own twice with different builds, I always summon sunbros for the boss fights during my NG+ runs.
                  Not that I need them, but I respect they use this way to get Medals because you may wait a lot and it's risky. They make me feel bad sometimes, because I only used invasions to get my 30 Medals so I try to help them on their duty ^^
                  And I have to say that I love the colors of sunbros phantoms and invaders !

                    I started ng 2, I already got sacred oath but you see I sold It, I thought you get sacred oath again in ng 2. Can someone tell me how to get sacred oath if you sold it

                      Maybe silly question but I have never interact with this covenant. Do I need to wear sunlight bro full armour and weapon when invaded for the battle ?

                        I find it quite curious that you get Medals from successful invasions and red signs. I love PvP, so its all good to me, but it seems way out of line when it comes to Sun Bros culture. As far as i know it at least.

                          So, i was turning in 9 sunlight medals, then one additional medal later. Didn't get the sacred oath. Since then i was constantly turning in medals by defeating the dragonslayer armour with others. I tried reloading, everything. Do i need to pay EXACTLY 10medals for rank 1? Then exactly 20 for rank two? Haaalp

                            Farming for these medals is down right bull crap I farmed for 3 days with the works (crystal rapier, gold serpent +3, ECT.) Even went to Rosaria and maxed out my luck and after THREE DAYS NOT ONE DROPPED!

                              I FEEL like drop-rates are better with this covenant badge equipped. I've always farmed with it accordingly. Ofc, I'm probably wrong, and it's just placebo, but... I've also always had easier farming experiences compared to what I hear about from other players.

                                this is so lame, I finished the game withut ever using any summon (including npc) and then tried some pvp on my new char, invaded some 100 times over the last week and some 90% of hosts were facerolling through every zone with 1 or 2 phantoms, like whats the point of playing this game if youre going to have someone boost you through every zone/boss? I think estus flasks should be completely removed for those summons to make it more balanced.

                                  I’m probably the best sun bro ever I got 3000 medals before my first playthru was even finished lol this game is so easy

                                    There needs to be a patch or something making the sunlight altar accessible early-mid game, the current way of doing things makes no sense. You have to kill an npc to access it early and then fight a boss that's supposed to be taken on much later. By the time you get access to GLS it's just not particularly great. It'd make sense to have an upgrade to LS earlier as well. If the altar had been in the high wall area only accessible after beating the cathedral of the deep and/or the catacombs it would've been better.

                                      If you make like 20 offerings in NG do those offerings carry over or do I have to start the offerings from 0 upon NG+?

                                          SOMEONE PLEASE EDIT THIS IN:

                                          A glitch happens if the Host of Embers enters the arena while they are glitched (no animations), then invaders in the Warrior of Sunlight covenant don't get kicked out, and get rewards no matter how the match ends, if the boss dies they get souls as a friendly summon would, and if the host dies they get embered, an ember and a medal of sunlight. This usually happens when the connection is bad (causing the no animations glitch on the host), or when there's a random lag spike from a white or golden phantom entering the world.

                                            Love this covenant, I just place my summon sign down near the stairs by the PvP arena to be apart of ganks with hosts, mostly we get around several hundred thousand souls, and get to spank about 7-9 Rosaria or Aldrich Invaders before me or the host dying, don't feel one bit sorry.

                                                      Quite an imbalance this time around. If you're running a faith build, you have 3 covenants you need to join and rank up in to get all the miracles. If you aren't running a faith build, you have zero incentive to join these covenants since you get nothing out of them.

                                                          I've found that the Knights running around in Lothric Castle will drop these - I start at the bonfire after beating the Dancer and do a straight run through to the next bonfire, using full collection gear (Crystal Rapier, Symbol of Avarice, Covetous Gold Serpent Ring and the occasional Rusted Coin) - excellent place to rack up Souls and equipment the Knights drop for extra currency. Even with the full set of collection gear the Sunlight Medals don't drop all that often, though, so be ready for a bit of a grind. ;)

                                                          • well, i just farmed 10 sunlight medals for one hour but when i offered them to the altar i didnt get sacred oath. i have the covenant item equiped. does somebody know what im doing wrong?

Sunbros should only be a PVE Co-op focused covenant. I mean getting medals for co-op with bosses is already easy enough ( the only covenant reward that can be acquired through PVE regularly) There shouldn't be another way for them to get any.
                                                                    Yes you can invade with sunbro but you will only get souls and ember nothing else.
