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.

 

Notes

  • 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.

      "Unknown if losing connection to the game server which results in being sent to the main screen adds penalty points. (Most likely does)"

      No, it doesn't. Disconnect your ethernet wire when you're invaded and don't want to bother with it, you go offline and there's no penalty at all.

        Sry i dont understand…i used the circlet…now i must stay 10-14 hours in cimitery of ash or can change area?

          After 600+ hours of invading I finally had to use this thing. I can't tell you how many times I've had the host disconnect so at least I know now that it probably wont happen again anytime soon.

          Still annoying that it punished me for other people being salty lol

            Why are so many people mad in the comments ?
            I have been playing this game since release for more than 600h doing mostly invasions, had hundreds of disconnect because of servers instability etc. and never got penalized

            The reason I'm on this page in the first place is because I had no idea what this thing was when I started a new character recently
            I guess people complaining are just your regular "alt f4 when I start losing" gang you see everywhere in this game

              bans related to this item are character bans, correct? like, if one of my old characters is banned and I start a new playthrough I don't need to worry about it right

                does this penalty system even actually apply? I see people invincibility glitching and moonwalk flying in pvp and i see people who fight until they feel they are gonna lose and then proceed to force disconnect as they run away and yet they are seen over and over again while invading/defending people. Just makes me hate the online community compared to the jolly cooperation and bloodshed seen in trued ds prime

                    I got invaded by some guy in the ringed city and he starting lagging around everywhere and then forced a blindfold mask into my inventory and now im banned :)

                    • 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.

                                                          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'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

                                                                  • Anonymous

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.

                                                                    • Anonymous

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?

                                                                      • Anonymous

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.

                                                                        • Anonymous

How this is supposed to be fair? I just want to play online and see the mesages, I already die to "balanced" "same lvl" enemiess, imagine fighting this son of a *****.

                                                                            • Anonymous

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...

However, the charge up time takes between five to thirty minutes, and you can only do it once or twice an hour. Still, amazing power!

                                                                                            • Anonymous

This is honestly the most ridiculous thing. I got banned twice before too because of my internet acting up and lagging out of games. This really just kills the game for me it really does. Like now I'm never gonna get on this game for another year or so probably.

                                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                                I'm not gonna lie, I have used the separation crystal a few times after being summoned as a dark spirit, but only if the host challenges me to a duel then continuously chugs. I had no idea that any of this contributed to sins. But my question is can the Statue of Velka or the Purging Monument eradicate these PVP sins? Because I know they can get rid of the other kind, and I recently went to Velka to have my sins forgiven, I wonder if I'm in the clear now or at least more so than before.

                                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                                  I've been softbanned for my internet acting up. This is my second penalization, so I have four questions.

                                                                                                  1. Are in-game hours logged? Do you have to be playing Dark Souls 3 consistently for the circlet to spawn?

                                                                                                  2. Will my connection be purposely filtered to play with "bad sports"?

                                                                                                  3. My characters in-game hours is max. Will this affect the circlet spawning?

                                                                                                  4. On the third offense, am I permanently BANNED?

                                                                                                  If anyone knows it'd be appreciated, thanks.

Does it work for auto-summons?

                                                                                                    • Anonymous

How is that unfair? It isnt they invaded us they could have just left but they took the fight and died with honor instead of being salty because they got ganked

                                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                                        • Anonymous

It's to be expected. On the other side, ganking is perfectly acceptable, people are expected to do whatever they can to defend themselves. Both invaders and hosts need to stop being so salty.

                                                                                                              I see a lot of people complaining about invasions, and how they’re “unfair to the invader”, but I say (literally) get good or get rekt. As an invader you’re forcing yourself into someone’s world and trying to kill them. How should this be fair? It should be common knowledge at this point that 90% of invasions will be a gank squad, so you should be prepared. If you want fair PvP, just go on undead match or place down a red sign soapstone. And if you still insist on saying ‘oh but invasions are more rewarding’, then invade and get ganked. And if you complain about losing your souls to some “casul gank squad who have no skill”, stop taking high amounts of souls into your invasions. It’s really simple, and yet people complain about it all the time.

                                                                                                              • Anonymous

This situation came up yesterday and a invading scrub "reported me for ganking." Part of me says if you invade, you gotta deal with whatever is in their world (gg), but part of me wants to honor a 1v1 throwdown if that's what they want.

                                                                                                                • Anonymous

All the others just run away because they know they're gonna get stomped by a Blue spirit, a Sunbro, and the host. To all the invaders, you suck. I really wish you scrubs had a time limit.

                                                                                                                  • You people are so retarded the game was literally designed so that you don't get invaded unless you want to, by being embered. You hate invasions? Don't ember, and kill yourself after each boss. What's the use in complaining you have all the tools to play the game the way you want.

                                                                                                                    I personally love both being invaded and invading, its the only thing that keeps this game from being boring on ng+++ etc...

                                                                                                                        Anyone get the idea that FromSoft kinda didn't set this up correctly? Like... invaders get shat on often. Too many gankers leading to lack of duel honor and a toxic "git gud" community where no skill was used by the winner, just more attacks.

                                                                                                                        And on the flip side, I get WHY inexperienced players DC when invaded at inopportune times. Who wants to deal with some invading asshole when you're just trying to make progress?

                                                                                                                        FromSoft, make it so DCing and stuff DOES add to this penalty counter, but make it degrade over time. If the events are few and far between, a player shouldn't be penalized for any amount of time.

                                                                                                                        • Anonymous

Seeing that makes me feel like the host couldn't stand having a superior force in their game. Not nearly as good a feeling as catching a 3+ gank squad in a doorway and hearing the screams of agony... but a nice comfort nonetheless. Skeleton, next time you see that disconnect sit back and smile knowing you didn't kill the host but you sent him back to the title screen.

I had a ton of modders in pvp matches today (4/5 ppl i invaded as an aldrich) and i can't even co-op w/ friends. Any suggestions?
