Darkmoon Blade

Spell Type


Focus ConsumptionFocus Cost 50
Attunement SlotsSlots Used 1
Requirements 30 Faith
Type Buff



Miracle of those who devoted themselves to the Darkmoon covenant.

Reinforces right weapon with Darkmoon light.

Miracles of the Darkmoon are tales of revenge, but Captain Yorshka recites only for the sake of remembering her brother, with out knowledge of its meaning.

Perhaps this is better, as revenge is better left to the Blades.


Acquired From

  • Reward for reaching rank 2 in the covenant Blades of the Darkmoon. (You MUST offer 30 Proof of a Concord kept to reach rank 2)

      Is this miracle worth the effort for a basically PVE-dedicated character? I can only think of a few bosses that have higher lightning resist than magic, but then I had this thought: darkmoon blade might me give me a higher boost to AR with, say, the sunless talisman, which has high faith and int scaling, than I would get with lightning blade & yorshka's chime, since, lightning blade only scales with the faith portion of your chime's spellbuff. Thoughts on this?

        Well, I farmed these purely for cheering up Yorshka. I wish that she'd never know her brothers fates. I'm sorry for her loss.

          Miracle Master Xbox achievement: Only 1.74% of DS3 players unlock this.

          -I wonder if that ratio has anything to do with this miracle's acquisition...?

            Well, ~2.8 million souls later, I finally have this miracle. Suffice to say, I also now have more dung pies than I thought was physically possible.

                if anybody wants this, and has a good few hours to spare - you can always farm the silver knights in anor londo.
                use a rusty coin (or golden if you have it), symbold of avarice, and the golden serpent ring, and maybe consider putting some points into luck beforehand, or re-speccing via rosaria, and of course, use any items/weapons you have on hand that can boost your luck!
                stunlock the***** out of them with something like a cathedral knight ugs (most ugs' are great for this) or just backstab them. only kill the 2 knights at the beginning of the stairs; rinse and repeat until you get as many concords as you need!

                  Is there anyone willing to offer this on PC? I'd be even willing to offer money for it.
                  Leave your steam name if you're interested.

                    I need just a few of the covenant items for Platinum. Would someone able to trade for the Wolf Ring, Warmth, and Darkmoon Blade/Ring? I have Sacred Oath, Great Lightning Spear, Great Deep Soul, and the Obscuring Ring if anyone needs those. PSN: Dragonfire2323

                        So this is for hybrid build basically. Question is why do I see this mostly used beyond SL120 or on low level glascanon twinks? Not good enough for a quality build unlike bleed builds?
