Short to Long Range
Sunlight Spear is a Miracle in Dark Souls 2. To cast a Miracle, you must use a chime or Special Weapons that can cast Miracle.
"A miracle that launches a spear of sunlight.
Powered with immense wondrous souls.
One of the ancient original miracles, said to have existed from infancy of the very world."
- Reaching rank 3 in the Heirs of the Sun covenant (after offering 30 Sunlight Medals). You can acquire this spell only once per character, NG cycles do not apply to covenant rewards.
- Hurled bolt of lightning, considerably faster cast than its Dark Souls counterpart, more powerful than Lightning Spear and Great Lightning Spear. This spell has a small AoE that will affect the original target and enemies that stand close to the original target. If the enemy is in any body of water, it will conduct a stronger AoE that will also affect enemies within the blast radius. The highest damaging miracle in game.
- With 65 faith, Lightning Dragon Chime +5, Sun Seal and Lightning Clutch Ring it deals approx 1400-1800 damage.
Knocks back the target.

Easiest/fastest (probably) way to get this offline, courtesy of youtuber VibronicSine319, video: Dark Souls II SOTFS Sunlight Medal Offline Farming Guide
Covenant of Champions
Brightstone Cove Tseldora - Royal Army Campsite Bonfire
Increased item discovery gear - I used Symbol of Avarice, Covetous Gold Serpent Ring +2, Watchdragon Parma
Chime - I used Lightning Dragon Chime +5
Hex - Promised Walk of Peace
Miracle - Soul Appease
Walk up to wall next to wagon, cast hex, then cast miracle as many times as needed (2, or 3 for me on NG+) taking out the 3 nearby Falconers.
Rinse and repeat until you have 30 Sunlight Medals.
For me, I'm a bit disappointed honestly. I'll equip it only if I'm wearing the old iron king' crown. I still prefer using 6 great lightning spears though.
this is 100% worth grinding for, the sheer damage and that delicious sound effect of a lightning strike is all you want for your faith.
if you play on pc, use the wrong spell cast number glitch to have the number of soul arrow casts in the forbidden sun, and then just spam it on every single falconer in the first bonfire area of tseldora. this makes the farming so much quicker and safer, since every falconer will likely die in one hit if they don't have their shield up and the spell itself has a very good range for a pyromancy
Symbol of Avarice, Ring of Restoration, Watchdragon Parma, Covetous Gold Serpent Ring+2, rusted coin, weapon which kill falconer on backstab and Hush for extra sneak
Go to the Royal Army Campsite, use rusted coin, apply Hush, smash the wooden wagon on the left and sit to the bonfire.
First falconer is in front of huge burning pile in the camp, back stab him, second one will come, kill him ASAP, do not push into the camp further. Third falconer should come too. Fourth falconer is inside the tent on the right of the burning pile, you can backstab him too.
This kind of round would take from 30 to 45 seconds, repeat.
it took me 2 hours to farm 20 medals
My character Parry This has been farming the sunlight medals off of the Kings Gate bonfire for the past few days. Drop a sign in the middle of the hall, sit at the bonfire and go do something else. Get to kill a wide variety of Nashandra's, Throne Watchers, Aldia's and even Dragonriders once. 3 ~ 4 million soul memory and still get summoned quite frequently. It'd probably have been faster if I joined the covenant earlier, or if I'd just go farm falconers, but I find jolly cooperation way more fun even this late into the game.
Also, I tried the DLC bosses, and I find them quite annoying. Fume Knight summons have a tendency to die or not have all the witches killed so he's a pain in the ass, blue ******* demon has a tough boss run, and nobody wants to summon for the bosses in the other DLC's for some reason. Ivory DLC's wastes is an option but summons there are rare - for obvious reasons.
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.
30 medals? Nope im out
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)
Anyone in PC original one? (Not SotFS)
Let's farm together
Looking to co-op this on dark souls 2. I’m at the end of my first play through so I still have dlc SL140 ps4
Anybody up for some jolly cooperation, I'm on xbox 360 username is "TBK 5506", Soul level is around 200 and i just started ng++
For faith build, disc chime give +3% miracles, ring sunlight convenant give +5% Also i have 77 with those booster and this spear give 2200 in water against mastodont :)
If u are a faith build u can also use old iron crown from the dlc, give 20% of spells each 2 minutes, very good for pvp also(if u have some long fights)
1.falconner drop it 2.in multi-player, it's impossible to drop spell. Still in ps3:soldat755 for some multi-player
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?
Is anyone interested do some Sunbro Co-op? I play on both PC (SOTFS) and on PS3 (Vanilla). I have several characters in different levels, from low ones till 17 million soul memory. My nick on PC is: King_Havel And on PS3 is: Dastiefeleid666 Praise the Sun! \o/
I'm playing SOTFS on PC. My nickname is King_Havel. SL 41 (16 million souls). Please reach me out if you need to farm sunlight medals or help me getting some for myself. Cheers!
i'm rank 3 in the hires of sun offline so they can drop by falconers and the giants in harvest valley
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...
how can people drop it for you?
anyone can drop me one? ( i need it for achievment ) ( DS2 regular version) add me on steam : steamcommunity.com/id/erikmd11_
anyone can drop me a one ( i need it for achievment )
IF ONLY I COULD BE SO GROSSLY INCANDESCENT. \(o.o)/
Praise the sun!
PRAISE THE SUN
Shield chime in your left for increased damage, Dragon Chime+5 in your right, Sunlight Cov. Ring, and lightning clutch ring .
Is it possible to obtain multiple sunlight spears? If yes how?
