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)

      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?

        i've done some small tests so i got a reinforced club which only requires 12 strenght to wield i have 16 strength the weapon has 139 AR + 0.After applying the darkmoon blade buff with me having 60 faith and using yorshka's chime +10 that has 247 spellbuff i get 374 AR that's a 235 AR increase after wearing a magic clutch ring i get 409 AR which is 35 more AR than without the ring.Neither the 2 boosting sorcery rings or 2 miracle boosting rings as well as Weapon art from Rose of Ariandel do not affect AR applied by this buff so all in all at 60 faith the most AR i got out of this buff was 270 Lightning blade got me 409 as well while dark blade got me 381 28 Ar less while blessed buff got me the least standing at 150 AR

          To those who say this best buff and to those who say that this is good because dark resistance is uncommon, YOU’RE ALL RETARDED! Dark moon blade is magic damage. Would you like to know how many types of enemies are weak to magic? 1, knights and only knights. Lightning blade does 1% more damage and almost every enemy is either weak to or neutral to lightning so it is one of the best buffs because every lord of cinder is weak to lightning.

            Hmm, I can waste away my life trying to get summoned or lose my sanity trying to farm these from the Silver knights. I now understand why people use Cheat Engine.

                I got this by beating the game on a deprived class sl15 +2 weapons, (invest however you like) then just equip blue sentinals or botd while i farmed the silver nights. I was being summoned pretty frequently (3-7/hr.) plus having endgame equipment made me overpowered vs invaders. 25 were from summons and 5 from silver knights. Took no more then 6hrs. Would do again for a strength faith build.

                  If you're going to buff your weapon, you either use this or CMW. However, I consider this the better option, since Faith has much more useful "utility" spells, like healing, while Intelligence doesn't.

                  10/10, the best Weapon Buff in this game.
