    The best spot for me was the king gate bonfire at the drangleic castle because theres so many bosses you can be summoned for. Theres 3 bosses at the end game spot, then the twin dragon riders and looking glass knight are nearby too. I found that I was summoned way more often when playing at night.

    Be careful, you may end up fighting the throne knights, the witch lady, and adlia in a row depending on how the person played thru the game. Youll only get 1 medal even tho you fought 3 bosses in a row.

    What sort of level range were you guys in? I'm now SL 210, I'd say around 1/4 way through my NG+ run and found 2 people neither of whom were sun bros and haven't been summoned at all yet. I remember when I played on 360 I farmed the vast majority of Sunlight Medals at Dual Dragonriders in no more than 2 hours as I was getting summoned so frequently and they're such an easy boss. Either I've over-leveled here or the servers are a lot more sparse...

    Also set Cross Region Play to Allowed in the Game Options tab. It's not confirmed, but it might net you more opportunities.

    I usually bounce around from the Castle's first bonfire and the Blue Smelter Demon in the DLC.

    Nowadays it is pretty hard to get summoned for sunlight medals. Any tips on any hot spots?

    On the bonfire menu look for the places with a slight orange border. They are current hotspots from what I understand.

    Good places I found were Ruin sentinels, Guardian dragon, Kings gate bonfire and the dragon boss in the DLC.

    The 2 dragons were the best for me. Within about a minute I was summoned in.

    However every summon seemed to be NG+ and beyond so just be warned it might not be as easy.

    I finally got my 30 today, for me it worked best at Fume Knight and Burnt Ivory King in NG

    Can anyone confirmar the Orange border in the bonfire menu being hot spots?

    Orange border seems to help a lot even though multiplayer has been mostly dead since I started a couple of weeks ago. Set cross-region to Allow as well. Today, I was summoned several times in less than 5 minutes in orange border areas, even though I'm already pretty high (7M+ SM). When I tried yesterday in a non-orange border area, I waited an hour with no summons (still got invaded twice though...)

    In NG+ and need to get about 26 medals. Soul Level is 4.6m in tier 36 (3m to 5m) so anyone in that range can summon me though I've probably left it too late.
