Arqade is a question and answer site for passionate videogamers on all platforms. It's 100% free, no registration required.

In the Catacombs, in the ground-level chamber just before the outside area with the cartwheel skeletons (the one with two bow-wielding skeletons), there are two white, floating circles/rings.

Can anyone tell me what these are and what the are for?

EDIT: Here's a screenshot: floating ring

This is one of the two rings. The exit on the left of screen takes you to the outside area with the skeleton wheels. The rings are not visible when you first enter this area, but appear after you have cleared the room of enemies. They also don't seem to appear unless you are playing online.

Would it be possible for you take a screen shot? –  Wipqozn Nov 28 '11 at 13:56
I'll attempt to take a screenshot of my own game soon. In the mean-time, see this Reddit discussion (reddit.com/r/darksouls/comments/mn0d5/…), which includes a link to a screenshot. –  YellowMegaMan Nov 29 '11 at 4:14

I believe these are the resonance areas for the Way of White covenant. If you cast a miracle there, it will have increased effectiveness under certain circumstances. It's tied into the online/mulitplayer aspect of Dark Souls, and I'm not sure it's been fully explored and documented.

This seems to be the general concensus, but there doesn't seem to be any definitive answer. –  YellowMegaMan Dec 4 '11 at 7:32
