One of the first covenants you're able to join in Dark Souls 2, The Way of the Blue, also referred to as "the covenant of the meek", is a co-op covenant that allows Blue Sentinels, wearing the Guardian's Seal, to summon themselves to your world automatically when you are being invaded, in order to protect you. This covenant is mostly aimed towards players who have trouble beating invaders or just like to have some added security. Covenant of the Meek Trophy.png

 

Covenant Leader: Crestfallen Saulden
Where to Join: Majula

How to Join Way of the Blue

As soon as you reach Majula, you can head up the hill past the bonfire, towards a large monument structure. Crestfallen Saulden is sitting in front of it, and he will invite you to join the covenant upon exhausting his dialogue. Crestfallen Saulden will give the player a Blue Seal upon joining the covenant. This ring slightly increases the wearer's HP, so it can also be useful for people who plan to join a different covenant later. It's NOT necessary to equip this ring in order to summon Blue Sentinels to aid you.

 

Rank

Ranks are obtained by killing invaders. You do not need to wear the covenant ring to acquire rank score.

Rank Requirement Rewards
0 Initial Blue Seal
1 Defeat one invading phantom Bloodbite Ring
2 Defeat 5 invading phantoms Hush
3 Defeat 10 invading phantoms Blue Tearstone Ring

 

 

Notes, Hints and Tips

  • Defeating invading NPC phantoms that show an invasion notice counts toward rank requirements as well.
  • Summoning an invader yourself via a Red Soapstone sign or a Dragon Eye and defeating them does NOT count.
  • Blue invaders, aka Arbiter invaders, do NOT count toward rank score.
  • Bell Keepers, also known as grey phantoms, do NOT count towards rank.
  • All of the items you get by gaining ranks in this covenant can be found or acquired somewhere else as well.
  • After patch 1.0.4 you do not need to wear the Blue Seal to summon Blue Sentinels.
  • If your Blue Sentinel protector dies, another (or the same) will be summoned as long as the invader is still present in your world.

      I was invaded and was wearing the ring while in the covenant but nobody helped me, I had other summoned phantoms but no blue phantom helped me.

        No red phantom invasions29 Aug 2016 11:01  

        So when I'm in brotherhood of blood covenant I get tons of red phantom invasions, yet while in this covenant all I get are blue arbiter spirits.... <br/>I'm using delicate string and tokens of spite YET NOT A SINGLE RED PHANTOM INVADES ME. Then I switch covenants and BAM invaded under a minute.... <br/>WTF???!!?!? Anyone have any idea why this is happening? Is being a sinner somehow breaking the functionality of this covenant somehow?

          I received Rank 1 for turning down the Blue Sentinels. After which I went and talked to Sauldon and I earned Rank 1 for my commitment to the Covenant.
