Spears of The Church is a new covenant in Dark Souls 3. It was added in the Ringed City DLC. It’s a defender covenant, which means that members will be summoned to defend an area from tresspassers. In this case, it amounts to pestering other players during the Halflight boss fight. In this guide, we’re going to show you how to join Spears of The Church covenant in Dark Souls 3 Ringed City.
How to join Spears of The Church covenant
You join the covenant by equipping an item called Spears of the Church. In order to get it, you’ll have to defeat the Darkeater Midir boss. The boss is optional, so it’s easy to miss it. You’ll first have to defeat it on the stone bridge, so it leaves and gets to the arena. To reach it, teleport to the Ringed Inner Wall bonfire and go into the shortcut elevator. During the ride, you’ll see an opening in the wall – jump through it.
Once you’re in the round room with the statues, break the one on the right to reveal an illusory wall. Follow the corridor and go down the ladder. When you’re in the chapel, you’ll see a cave behind the altar – go inside and jump into the hole.
How to rank up Spears of The Church covenant
To reach the covenant’s altar, ride the elevator down and exit to the left. You’ll see the giant stone slab halfway up the hill. Interact with the Divine Spear Monument to offer Filianore’s Spear Ornaments. These sometimes drop from Ringed Knights, but you’ll mostly get them by doing PvP for the covenant.
If you aren’t being summoned, you can try resurrecting Judicator Argo at the Purging Monument. It’s a pricey affair (we suspect it depends on your level, though), but may necessary in case you’ve already beaten the Halflight boss.

Spears of The Church covenant rewards
Like with other covenants, you’ll get rewards for turning in enough covenant items. There are two tiers of rewards here:
- Young Grass Dew (10 ornaments) – Provides increased damage absorption to acting covenant members.
- Divine Spear Fragment (30 ornaments) – A consumable that lets you summon spectral spears from the ground.
