White Sign Soapstone is a Multiplayer Item in Dark Souls 3.

White Sign Soapstone

Online play item.
Create a co-op summon sign.

Be summoned to another world as a phantom through your sign, and defeat the area boss to gain the strength of flame.

The nature of Lothric is murky, unclear.
The White Sign Soapstone allows Unkindled to assist one another.


White Sign Soapstone Usage

  • Use a White Sign Soapstone to cast a soul sign, and that sign will be sent to other players' worlds. If you're summoned from the sign, you'll be transported to the summoner's world. Soul signs can be cast by anyone, whether living or undead, but you must have the power of the Lord of Cinder to summon other players.
  • Use this item to have players summon you to their world to defeat a boss and restore your ember form. If you are in a covenant you may receive other rewards. To play or trade with a friend you will need this soapstone and a password. To enter a password go to system, then network and edit in a password. The password is caps sensitive.



White Sign Soapstone Locations

  • The Soapstone can be purchased at the Firelink Shrine from the Shrine Handmaid for 500 souls.



  • Bosses only give 1/4 of the main souls as Phantom.
  • You will be summoned as white Phantom. If you are in the "warriors of the sunlight" covenant you will have a golden phantom.
  • In order for a host to summon another player into their world, they must first have consumed an Ember.




  • The sub-reddit community password is "help". [1]

      Is there a reason why i have to use a dried finger to see a second white sign in an area? It says the max white phantoms possible is 3, but i only seem to be able to get one, then use a dried finger to be able to get a second. Before i summon the first one i can see like 8 other signs on the ground so i know it isnt just a dead area. Anyone else have this issue?

        If you like CO-OP to flight bosses, then you can try the following meta level: 1) Level 68-72: Aldrich, Dancer and Sister Friede. Weapon level +8, special weapon +4, don't over upgrade your weapon to max. 2) Level 95-103: Twin Princes, Soul of Cinder, Nameless King, Demon Prince, Midir and Gale 3) Level 103+: Demon Prince, Midir and Gale

          Secondary function for the soapstone: early invasion warning system. If there's an incoming invasion attempt, the soapstone will turn gray like in other cases when it's not available but it happens far before you get the notification that you have been invaded. I'm fairly certain that this happens even when the invasion connection fails for one reason or another which makes keeping an eye on the soapstone sometimes interesting in places like the Aldrich Faithful area. If you see the soapstone turn gray and then pop back unrelated to your location then it probably means an invasion failed. On the other hand, if you're in an invasion queue yourself, the soapstone turning gray may also indicate you're about to try an invasion yourself.

            It would be nice to add "Summoner's area Boss must be alive to be able to summon via white signs"
            Because we struggled A LOT with a firend before we realised that. And in some area (like smouldgering lake) you can rush the boss quite quickly then explore later (if you have little playtime for example)

              Wow, it's so easy to get a soapstone in this game. In DS2 you had to complete a mini quest that you could easily miss

                  What I used to do when I was still a noob at like 10 hrs, on bosses like abyss watchers I used to summon a random scrublord in lothric knight armor and watch them get massacred by the boss so I could learn the boss's moveset and then of course the boss was at pretty much full health so I would win like first try everytime. I then proceeded to grow a pair and own all of the bosses. Shoutout to the countless sunbabies and casul sadbois that helped me learn the ds3 ropes. [T]/

                    One thing this page should mention and fails to is that there is no level cap for being summoned if you and a friend have a password set up. Meaning regardless if you're level 200+ you can still help your noob friends out. The downside? You get HEAVILY nerfed in terms of health, focus, and stamina. You might also open them to invasions by higher level players (Still testing this at this time. My friend and I were invaded 4 times while playing and one guy was using the Quakestone hammer and one was a pyromancer with a spell from later game. Unsure if they were players who deliberately kept a low soul level and got carried through or if they were high level players)

                      It's interesting co-op to help players fight the bosses, especially the Nameless King.
                      Give it a try at around SL90 - SL105, you can easy get summoned near Great Belfry bonfire.
                      You will encounter players carried with Dragonslayer Greatshield or Havel's Greatshield, with UGS or Great Hammer, and as naked as Sword Master !
                      Some casters can do a lot damage with their spells, but can't tank 2 hits from Nameless King, you have to tank for them, otherwise they won't make it.
                      Some players like to summon 3 phantoms and then attract 2 invaders. usually invaders are good players, I suck in PvP, always failed to protect the host. :)
                      After boss killed, some players quickly put the Mimic box into their head to get more soul, funny !
                      Full Catarina Set, Catarina Set, Undead Legion Set and Lorian's Armor Setare are common. Sometime you can see full Lothric Knight Set, Silver Knight Set, Black Knight Set, cool !
                      (rare) You You will encounter hackers, they rush in as an invincible invader, they cast the spells you have never seen before and then kill you.
                      (rare) You You will encounter traps, the invader wear the ring pretend as white phantom, sit there wait for you. Make sure try the lock after get summoned, if you get a lock, then prepare for the fight.
                      The most memorable fight was with a bow-guy, in Nameless King phase 2, he stayed away from Nameless King, and then started to shoot with bow, I managed to lure Nameless King around circle, and let him made the hits.
                      I was surprised we could co-op so well to form a tank-range to fight the Nameless King.

                        If i summon somebody using a summon sign, will the person be a phantom, or a second host of embers? There have been times where i summoned both from different white summon signs. Also, when I invade other worlds, I have seen people labeled as a "phantom" or i have seen multiple "host of ember"s. What determines a phantom of host of embers?

                          Does placing my soapstone sign still work if I've defeated the boss of the area I'm in? Also does it remain in the place I left it if I travel somewhere else or use the bonfire just to rest at it?

                            Does having your sign down boost connection to other worlds? Like the Dried Fingers, heard somewhere that it did, never knew for sure.

                              have a real problem here... Playing on PS. My friend just bought it and he can't use his soapstone at the high wall of lothric. He has cross riegon play on, summon sign visibility unrestricted, launch setting play online, passwords match...

                              no idea what's going on.
