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.
  • 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.

      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 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
