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 (Spell Buff * 0.85).
  • 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 the worst Miracle 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 consider 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.

      Too bad From Software isn't tuning the game content anymore, especially after the DLC came out they just gave up balancing stuff they never used. I do wonder though, if you use this spell in low level invasions, would it work?

        The game of frizbee has come a long way since then. Now, they're made of foam and plastic so they can do more damage than whatever this spell is made of

          There is no reason this spell should do less damage than Lightning Spear. It should do more, in my opinion, but there's certainly no reason it should do less. Not only does it do far less damage than LS, it does close to no damage at all. This is the worst spell in the game. It could have been fun, but it's useless. Never use it.

            actually this miracle isn’t as bad as everyone talks about it , I found a way to use it properly , you can use it to make a diversion , you can try to desorientate your opponent by going around while the disk is used as a trap to prevent your enemy’s actions , just keep it near and use it as combo starter if you time it right , it’s like putting an automatic mine on your strategy... or even can be used as fleeing while being assisted by the disc behind you to strike your pursuer... its like deploying a temporary ally to use its little time to use it as a diversion or a back up plan.... anyway , i’m just here to say that even bad spells can be useful when you try to find a strategy about it

              IMO, this spell should've been the Cleric's alternative to Farron Dart. Picture this, Way of White Corona is given the cast animation of Farron Dart, has its damage reduced a tad bit as compromise, focus cost reduced to 5-6, and then no longer dissipates when hitting a wall. Would it not be a valuable spell for chip damage and other utility?

                Does this spell deal magic damage? I know it isn't a lightning spell, but it has to have some damage typing, right?

                  Actually if you manage to make it stop on the target it deals pretty good damage. At 55 faith, saint talisman +8 it deals approximately 800 white a good cast. Generally the sweet spot is at max lock on range

                    I like this miracle because I can make a character from a different game and play him on Dark Souls 3. Pretty much the only ranged attack spell I use

                      Okay, no. "worst miracle in the game"? No. Divine pillars of***** takes that spot by the farthest margin imaginable.

                          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.
