Warrior of Sunlight Information


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.
  • Sample video (2h 49s)


Effects of Covenant

  • The player's white summon signature will now be golden.
  • The player will shine with gross incandescence whilst 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.

      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.

            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.

                        Anyone know if your medals reset each play through? Like I think I gave around 20 and started new game + 2. Will I get the miracle after just 10 more?

                          Should get the gesture when we are beeing summoned first time as sunbros. And at the altar only if we never have helped anybody out until this point.
