Way of White Circlet is a Multiplayer Item in Dark Souls 3.

Way of White Circlet

Online play item. Restore the connection to other worlds.

Those who engage in unjust deeds when in contact with other worlds will lose their connection to them.

Way of White Circlets assume such sin as their own, but are found few and far between. Acting without honor will never be without risk. "


Way of White Circlet Usage

  • Restores the link to other worlds


Way of White Circlet Locations

  • A single one is given to all brand new characters, no matter what class has been picked.
  • A Way of White Circlet should spawn in-game an estimated 10-14 hours (in game), next to your coffin in the Cemetery of Ash, after being banned (Assuming you have already been banned once and used your first Way of White Circlet). However, it may take longer/shorter than the provided time from other end users as well.
  • You can hold up to 99 Way of White Circlets.



  • Very similar to the item in Dark Souls 2 which is called a Bone Of Order and most likely uses a similar penalty system.
  • Any player that disconnects during Online Interactions can be penalized, which includes;  The host, Summoned Phantoms and Invaders.
  • Penalty points are added when you disconnect from the session without dying and without successfully completing your objective such as killing the host, phantoms or a boss.
  • Closing the game itself while you're connected to another player will add penalty points. (Crashing is treated this way)
  • Losing internet connectivity will add penalty points.
  • Unknown if losing connection to the game server which results in being sent to the main screen adds penalty points. (Most likely does)
  • Using the Black Separation Crystal may add penalty points to your account, significantly less then illegally disconnecting would. See ongoing gamefaqs discussion:
  • Unknown if these penalty points ever decrease besides using the Way of White Circlet.
  • Points are accumulated per character basis.
  • There is a bug that doesnt allow the Way of White Circlet to spawn after 10-14 hours, unknown cause.
  • Player may still be summoned through covenant invasions.

          Got invaded in Irithyll Dungeon today by someone who weapon swapped a Rapier with a Lothric Knight Greatsword and was showing it off while I stood by the bonfire. I applauded, he bowed, and I pulled the plug of my PS4 with my foot.

          Actually the first time I ever had to use one of these, and it was because I wasn't interested in fighting a weapon swap lmao

            Kinda sucks that losing connection/sudden crash/a damn power outage (like what happened to me last night-) will cause penalty points. I swear the only way I'm gonna get banned is via sudden crashes.
            Just a few days ago, both me and my friend crashed at the same time trying to load into the Grand Archives, so at least we got penalized together <3

              Have a few questions. First, what does it do? Second, what are the penalty points i keep reading about? And third, something about alt f4 whatever it was, so that means pc only?

                Make a simple batch file that backs-up save file automatically and when invaded, Alt-tab, click the batch file then Alt-F4... recopy the old save back and never get penalised, just a thought I have yet to try it.

                    When you have 3 people on high wall with ultra weapons, the game send you a red to balance things out. As an invader i rarely get a solo host. The "forced" pvp if a big feature and people who know more about games, than you tought i adds some spice. Don't cry is my point

                      I have over 400 hours playing DS3, never hacked, never cheated, I wiped my hard drive about 3 months ago and decided to reinstall. Lost my character and all my progress and collections, probably my own fault for wiping my own hard drive, fine, w/e, but why in the hell do I have this? Cant even remember the last time I played before today.

                          its honestly a really dumb system when it seems most invaders are duping Siegbräu, divine blessing and are healing 15+ times.

                                Often times when I invade, the host will immediately DC which makes getting the covenant rewards to 100% this game almost impossible because farming takes forever

                                  Stupidest ****ing idea ever fromsoft. I never run from an invasion but sometimes I have to go do something or your just over playing and turn the Xbox off. Then let’s talk about the ****ing invaders that just sit there to **** with you. Fromsoft get it together next time.

                                    I've played this game all four years, still don't have any clue as to what the purpose of this is. What does it mean by "restores the link to other worlds"? I read the page, but still can't make sense of it. Is it vague or am I just an idiot?

                                      The people that complain about invasions are the same people who play through the entire game with over leveled phantoms and learn absolutely nothing. Want a tip? If you hate invasions, start invading. You'll learn way more than your phantoms can ever teach you. If you can't beat em, join em. Especially if the reason you can't beat em is because you've refused to learn anything. Run through the game solo at least once, invade for fun, learn your opponent. Don't refuse to understand.

                                        After 2 disconnects due to bad wifi and black crystalling out so that my friend can rest at a bonfire I have to wait 10-14 hours? Perfect just what I wanted
