These are the covenants which seek to lend assistance to other players through the use of the White Sign Soapstone, or through special abilities that assist their allies in cooperative player-versus-environment play. Note that while these covenants may be co-op flavored, there are still ways for members of these covenants to invade and kill other players, and even something as seemingly innocuous as a group healing spell can be a dangerous weapon in the hands of a savvy invader.
Heirs of the Sun
Similar to the Warriors of Sunlight Covenant for Dark Souls. These players will focus on co-operative play and assistance, and strike a special pose while being summoned. Additionally, their golden signs are expected to be more noticeable and thus be able to assist others more often. Sunlight warriors gain sunlight medals upon helping a host in their world which they can use to rank up in the covenant.

Covenant ItemsHeirs of the Sun does not have any multiplayer items exclusive to the covenant. Instead, being in the covenant modifies the White Sign Soapstone and Small White Sign Soapstone, extending their duration and changing the reward to a Sunlight Medal.
Way of the Blue
While traveling the kingdom of Drangleic, dark spirits may invade your world. If you're a member of the Way of Blue, you'll receive assistance from the Blue Sentinels. Sentinels are automatically summoned to the world of another player who has been invaded to defend the host. Only invaders who used a Cracked Red Eye Orb will trigger this effect, and a Way of the Blue member will not receive assistance if invaded by a Grey Spirit, Dragon Spirit, or if they summoned a player from a Red Sign.
- Joined by speaking to Crestfallen Saulden in Majula.
- Initial Reward: Blue Seal.
- Rank 1 (Defeat 1 invading phantom): Bloodbite Ring.
- Rank 2 (Defeat 5 invading phantoms): Hush.
- Rank 3 (Defeat 10 invading phantoms): Blue Tearstone Ring.
Covenant ItemsWay of the Blue does not have any exclusive multiplayer items. A Blue Sentinel will automatically be summoned to assist an invaded Way of the Blue member, provided the Blue Sentinel is wearing their Guardian's Seal. The Way of the Blue player does not need to wear their Blue Seal for this to occur.
