Darkwraith is a Covenant in Dark Souls. This is a hidden covenant in the game, obtained by speaking to the primordial serpent Darkstalker Kaathe in The Abyss. Through this Covenant players will be able to obtain the Red Eye Orb which is an invasion item with unlimited uses. Joining this Covenant will award you with the Dark Hand, a fist weapon with the ability to steal humanity from another player by using its strong attack.
Note: Once you have defeated the Four Kings boss, you will not need to wear the Covenant of Artorias ring anymore (until NG+) to enter The Abyss.
