      It's 07:43 AM Augist 1st and i finally got the Sunlight Spear, took me 3 days of 6 hours of farming and i finally got it.
      Tips? Nothing than time can resolve it, but if still not enough, put a 6 hours of podcast or music and go to the farm.
      Good luck Beares of the Curses, wish of luck to all.

        Annoying how the Sunbro covenant in this game is the only online based covenant where you can’t get the reward spell elsewhere. At high soul memory you might as well farm falconers. Good luck, friends, just finished grinding today.

          If you're going for the achievement I highly recommend joining sunlight covenant early and keeping soul memory around other players until having 30 medals. There's plenty of co op at the right ranges. If you waited too late to join, DLC bosses can be alright at higher soul memories, but joining early gives way more opportunities (usually with shorter runs)

                      What a lot of people don’t know is that some of the clutch rings affect specific damage types that you wouldn’t expect in the first place. It says to use the lightning clutch ring when in fact the datk clutch ring gives the same effect as well as stack with the lightning clutch ring simply because dark offcourse is affected by faith as well. If you’re not certain what items help you buff your spells just press triangle (on ps4) in the equip section to check the effect it had on your weapon stat. Also, if you keep your maximum equip load low (since a mage build doesn’t require a high max equip load anyway) you can gain a huge benefit from using flynn’s ring as well.

                        So this spell is pretty much 'one-per-game' no matter how many times you NG+ etc the game, is this correct?

                              I recently play and get Platinum, this fckn miracle was tooooo hard to get! (people still playing it and I forgot to do coop constantly) I farmed Sunlight medals with the Falconers xD

                              Oh, and for the lazy people here, the medals and the Sunlight Spear cannot be dropped for other players!

                                That's the sad thing about locking content behind covenant ranks. Barely anybody plays the game anymore, so it's pretty much impossible to get that stuff...
