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)



  • Appears to add the same damage as Lightning Blade; the only advantage over the easier to acquire Lightning Blade is if used against enemies with high lightning resistance, since Darkmoon Blade deals magic damage. Otherwise the two spells appear to be identical.

  • Scales with Spell buff
  • Appears to add magic AR equal to 95% of your Spell Buff

      personally, i like the dark blade best, because even though it doesn't do the same amount of damage it still destroys stamina since it does dark damage

        This description pisses me off - not because I hate it, but because of how the Darkmoon Blade covenant was handled in DS3. It outright says that the Blades hunt for vengeance, and yet they have the covenant function as summoned cooperators - protectors, but not avengers. Darkmoons should've been an invading version of Blue Spirits, at the least - invaders of people who have successfully killed hosts as red or purple phantoms. Gives me conniptions.

          For PvP it's arguably better than Lightning Blade since natural lightning defense comes mostly from Endurance - a stat every character needs and levels up. Magic defense however is mainly determined by your amount of Intelligence, which is "only" leveled by pyros, sorcerers and - to an extent - dark builds. Also, nothing more satisfying than smashing a Blade of the Darkmoon to a pulp with a blue shining Dragon Tooth.

            If you leave the Blades of the Darkmoon can you still use this miracle? I doubt it but I wish this page told us about that.

              I bought this game when it first came out and have been on and off grinding ever since. As of today I'm up to 26 concords and hate my life...

                Having trouble with grinding for this spell? Try this: If you have the Crystal Sage's Rapier, your Luck increases by 50, wielding to obviously goes to 100. They can stack with a 99 Luck build along with a Gold Serpent Ring +3 and a Symbol of Avarice. Not to mention the rusted coins you can buy from Patches. This helped me greatly in my struggle to grind for Covenant items, hopefully this helps you guys too.

                  I love seeing how many people have struggled to farm for items in this game... here I am, sitting with every item in the game on NG of 80 hours played, and at least two copies of every base, non-transposed item.. It's not rocket science, just kill stuff to get items and souls, Homeward Bone or Coil Fragment respawn, and then kill, kill, kill again. EZ! <3

                      Would anyone be willing to trade 27 Concords for my few dozen full silver knight armor sets? I think it's a great deal!

                        The site says this scales with spell buff and lightning blade scales only with the FTH portion of the spell buff? Am I to assume this scales with both INT/FTH or is the site too vague as usual?
