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.

      I love how this one tiny little white ring has sparked up an entire comment section full of salt, tryhards and idiocy. Real entertainment right here.

          I have been reading comments from YT that if you delete all of your characters and start freshly and then wait for 2 weeks or 1 month to get you unpenalized. My fresh character playtime is 14h and an half. My theory is that if you wait for 2 weeks or 1 month and after that you receive the message "You may use the Way of White Circlet" thingy in Cemetery of Ashes, you'll get unpenalized. But idk, just my theory.

            If black crystal adds points towards a ban, you probably have to try to get banned, because I've had to BC out of 5 hacker worlds consecutively (yay for pc) and didn't have any penalty. If the circlet is only for the losers who force-DC the second you kill them, a second chance shouldn't even exist for them (for that character, because totally nuking them runs a small chance of banning someone who just crashes a lot)

              So I get penalty points when I black crystal out because I felt bad for a cornered host who'd just cleared the last of his enemies but had no estus and almost no health left? Why must From encourage people to be assholes

                So I'm supposed to "got gud" when I invade a cheater who prevents me from using black crystal and curses me to death but every time I still match up with the same guy so I decide to alt f4 "like a casul" and get some sort of a ban because I didn't want to become the amusement element of a 12 year old kid or a middle aged troll who just kills the fun of the game for other people? Alright buds

                  I guess there is a rule that only total tryhards or total casuls can post comments.... But if thats true, then I'm a filthy casul

                    PSA for low-skill players that want to get invaded less (so you don't have to DC): SIMPLY STOP SUMMONING PHANTOM HELP AT THE START OF EVERY ZONE. IT *GREATLY* BOOSTS YOUR MATCHMAKING PRIORITY TO BE INVADED. PvE most of a zone solo, and you will be invaded by human players faaaaaaar less often -- it'll happen occasionally, but the majority of your invasions in a playthrough will be the scripted NPC invasions. The PvE in this game is not that hard. It really isn't. You can do it without a gank squad. I promise.

                      If you invade and get mad when a host DC's wasting your time, stop invading? You're coming into their world and probably ruining their PVE/Co-Op experience HOWEVER disconecting with the stone item shouldn't softban you because like, well, that's lame?

                        Easy fix: If a host DCs after a certain amount of time has elapsed, the invader should immediately be entitled to the rewards. The problem with the system as is, is that innocent players that get unlucky with crashes, etc. will be caught in the crossfire. If an invader or summon DCs, I see no reason for a softban as they don't negatively impact anyone.

                            The softban should last longer because it is very annoying invading a bunch of bankers as an Aldrich Faithful or a watchdog of Farron and then as soon as they start to lose the host disconnects with no penalty, it is extremely frustrating when this happens due to no rewards and it wastes my time.

                              I still want to know how these points are accumulated, as the rare but ever possible power outage or other natural event could disconnect me from online activity; and I do want to know if I should avoid gaming during a storm to avoid a possible ban. Also does this item refer to softbans or another form of ban?

                                  I got banned 2 years ago when an hacker invaded me, he killed me and I transformed into the dragon and gave me a lot of souls, this guy was perma invading me and I got a softban. I talked with Bandai Namco support and they are taking 2 years to answer me and tell me that they can't do anything for fix it, that this ban was did by From Software and it's funny because you go to From Software's support and they tell you that you have to talk with Bandai Namco's support... Unfair this game desing, suck a lot of

                                      The funny thing is there are hacks that crashes your game so you can get penalized for being invaded by a hacker 10/10 game design

                                        So question is there anyway to check your penalties? I've been d/c'd from game worlds before just randomly and want to know if i've accumulated any.
