A lost Way of White miracle. Launches a white discus which slices into foes and returns to its conjurer. 

Long ago, when the imprints left by the gods were still deep, miracles of the Way of White existed alongside aureoles.

Those who yearned for the long-lost aureoles fully believed that they would return, one day.


Acquired From




  • The spell acts like a boomerang, returning to the player once the disc is tossed.
  • The damage is very poor, only doing about a 100+ damage on contact and even less when used on a non-dedicated Faith build. The time it takes for the disc to come back is about a second or 2, leaving the opponent just enough time to get out of the way. The disc will also dissipate if it touches anything. Overall, the miracle has many problems and is considered by many to be the worst miracle in the whole game. However, multiple improvements through game patches have made the Miracle much better than it was.
  • Two discs can be on screen at the same time.
  • Corona is the Latin word for "Crown". 
  • Regulation 1.22 increased the damage and Patch 1.11 sped up the animation.

        This spell can be used to devastating affect if used at max range. The Pontiff beasts, Old Demon King, the giants in the Cathedral can be hit for upwards of 600+damage at even lower faith tested 35 to 40 levels if the disc stops on their hitbox. Max casting speed allows multiple discs to be used on enemies that are faster moving, timing and spacing the disc to hit an npc on the back can stagger enemies like the poniff knights and allows for closing into melee range. It is a situational miracle but it was the sole reason for my low SL victory over old demon king with a dedicated faith build when you do not yet have access to high level lightning miracles. (i ran through Ashes dlc at sl 35 just to grab this miracle and test it, I have found that on large stationary targets this spell is bordeline broken, with the Old demon kings flame ability or meteor call active, you can place mulitple discs on him for easily 1200 to 1800 damage before he reacts and the range to throw the disc optimally is just outside his max range hammer slam.

          The clerics accidentally lost their frisbee. We're just the ones that happened to find it again and decided to use it as a weapon for some reason.

            Guys, this spell does indeed suck, but the one situation in which it is indeed useful is when fighting against Midir. Giant ass hit box = WoWC hits 4-5 times. Took him down easily in NG +7. But yeah otherwise fuck this spell.

              Can also make use of it before you engage opponent, will sometimes stagger on return path if you close the gap yourself

                Not so much for damage but potential to set yourself up for combos. You can catch the opponent by suprise on the discs way back and stagger them and go in for attack. If the opponent is far away it does well for spacing. If he is pressuring you and is close ish to you you have a better chance to hit him on the way back. Or if he is in an attack animation. I have to practise this more but i think it might have potential. Since often people just dodge your other miracles you can catch them off guard. It also has low fp cost and fairly fast casting speed

                  I have an interesting concept, it staggers the enemy on the return path. If you are a lothric spear user or weopon has range you can take advantage of this. I guess its all timing. Other than that ita good for spacing opponeng

                      The good thing about a Gael run is you don't have to think about how effective this spell is or just have to use it.
