The player must have 25 (50 in the non-patched version) Faith. This requirement is lowered by 5 for every boss the player kills as a white phantom.
How to joinEdit
Once all requirements are met, the player may kneel in front of the broken statue on the balcony behind the Hellkite Dragon.
Warriors of Sunlight are watched over by Lord Gwyn's Firstborn, the former god of war who was stripped of his deific status.
Upon joining, players receive the Lightning Spear miracle, and can learn the Praise the Sun gesture. Players in this covenant will have an easier time co-opping with other Warriors of Sunlight, as well as Princess's Guards and members of the Way of White covenant. Also, Warriors of Sunlight will have a golden summon sign instead of a regular white summon sign, and appear as gold phantoms instead of white phantoms.
Upon defeating a boss with a Warrior of Sunlight present, all members of the party (including the Warrior of Sunlight) will receive a Sunlight Medal, giving Warriors of Sunlight further priority over other summon signs with the incentive of further rewards. The Sunlight Medal award also applies for summoning NPC Warriors of Sunlight (i.e. Solaire of Astora).
Further rewards are granted upon leveling up:
|+0||-||Access to the Lightning Spear miracle, access to the Sunlight Spear miracle if the player offers the Soul of Gwyn, Lord of Cinder.|
Access to the Great Lightning Spear miracle.
Players loses access to the Sunlight Spear miracle.
- The Praise the Sun gesture, associated with Warriors of Sunlight is a personal favorite of Hidetaka Miyazaki, the head of From Software.
- The Praise the Sun gesture is also featured in Demon's Souls, and is performed by casting a Miracle with the Ring of Sincere Prayer equipped.
