Spell Type Miracle
  FP Cost 15
  Slots Used 1
Requirements 18 Faith
Type Ranged Attack

 

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

  • Found in: Painted World of Ariandel, inside the church near where you meet Sir Vilhelm.
  • Fextralife Video: Way of White Corona Location
  • Video Location - From the Corvian Settlement bonfire, run out the house, cross the bridge and go up the hill past the Corvian Knight. Where the Kknight entered go there and follow that ridge path all the way until you see a ladder which you will take. From the ladder head straight into the doorway and climb up the ladder. Follow that path to the roof of the church and drop down (or take the ladder). The miracle is located in the church guarded by another Knight.

 

Notes

  • The damage is (Spell Buff * 0.85).
  • The spell acts like a boomerang, returning to the player once the disc is tossed.
  • The Corona can hit 3 times in a row if it reaches its maximum distance.
  • The Way of White Corona is commonly regarded as one of, if not the worst Miracles in the game. The damage is very poor, only dealing about 100+ damage even on Faith dedicated builds; the startup is predictable, and the time it takes before the discus returns is also very slow. It will also dissipate if it touches anything solid (excluding enemies). Game patches have made attempts to better the Miracle, but it is still considered lackluster and not worth using.
  • Two discs can be on screen at the same time.
  • Corona is the Latin word for "Crown". It is also the name of the aura of plasma that surrounds the Sun.
  • Regulation 1.22 increased the damage and Patch 1.11 sped up the animation.
  • Damage dealt is Physical and therefore affected by Flynn's ring.

 

Trivia

  • Slave Knight Gael wields a much more powerful version of this Miracle, casting five at a time that do greater damage

      good spell vs large sized targets, such as Midir or the Wyverns in arch dragon peak or the Judicators... etc. Has decent DPS while also being safe to hit those targets since getting close to them is dangerous.

        I annoyed one of my friends with this and lighting arrow to make them roll back into the corona. Best spell 10/10

          A divisive miracle, to be sure, but criminally underrate. In terms of pve, the "poor damage" listed in the notes is lies. I could pull off about 800 damage per cast of this against larger bosses that were either wide enough or slow moving enough to take every hit from the stationary spinning disk. For the low low cost of FIFTEEN god damn fp, that's pretty bloody good. In terms of pvp, it certainly won't be the fight decider like your lightning spears or stakes, but the returning disk can be used to set up the most professional combos you've ever done, considering the return always homes in on where the caster CURRENTLY IS on return. I feel the way of Frisbee corona is representative of miracle builds overall. Misunderstood, not quite as hard hitting at scorceries or pyromancies, but disgustingly spammable.

          Also, any duel you win with this gives you +10 badassery.

              Fun fact, Via testing with a friend, WoWC is almost a guaranteed stagger if it hits. Perseverance and Iron/Stoneflesh out poise is, but in most other cases, it’s a solid opportunity to stagger a pvp opponent. Further testing needed for PvE, but the poisebreak gives it a niche use.

                  It can actually hit at least five times in total if it is set up right. It'll tick further as long as it stands still and one time for each direction but it tends to push enemys out of it's hitbox. Testet it on a Ghru Mage and managed to get five ticks (one moving forward, three while hovering and one when it came back) by hitting the almost exact middle of its hitbox and dealt around 550 dmg. Didn't test it on enemys with bigger hitboxes or bosses yet.

                    This can actually hit up to four times if the enemy stays inside its hitbox when it reaches it's max range. It is also usefull to stagger groups in tight spaces to set up an attack that would be interrupted otherwise. Ant it's fun to throw a second one right when the first commes back and watch'em cuting through a group from both directions. It actually is good against many weaker enemys because it can hit an infinite amount as long as it travels. It's just very bad for dealing real damage and more of a utility tool.

                      I have a confession to make. Someone killed me with this in PvP. He threw it, I killed him, it came back and killed me. It's actually insane.
