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 Kepts to reach rank 2)

 

Notes

  • Adds magic damage equal to (spellbuff*0.95)
    • Damage is applied each time the enemy is hit with the weapon, regardless of the damage of the attack performed
    • Despite applying magic damage, this scales exclusively to Faith
    • This spell and Lightning Blade do the same damage in different elements, making them fully interchangeable
  • Buff lasts 60 seconds (affected by the Lingering Dragoncrest Ring)
  • This miracle is particularly powerful on weapons that already have magic damage, such as the Drakeblood Greatsword
  • Damage can be increased with the Magic Clutch Ring and the Crown of Dusk
  • A few weapons and weapon arts have hidden multipliers that slightly lower the buff's damage per hit.
    Namely, Daggers and Paired Weapons display this adjustment.
    Regardless, the buffs always remain efficient.
  • Since Faith builds have access to four elements in unique weapon buff spells (Blessed Weapon, Lightning Blade, Darkmoon Blade, and Dark Blade), they're the ideal choice for a more physical-focused build investing into magic.

      Every ones talking about how hard this spell is to get so ill give u some tips that are useful, namely what weapons are good with Dark moon blade, Almost all duel weapons are insanly good with dmb, mainly "Sellsword Twinblades" "Winged Knight Twinaxes" "Onikiri and Ubadachi" "Drang Twinspear" are god tier with dark moon blade... But other then Duel weapons, weapons such as "Spiked Mace" "Claymore" "Flameberge" "Splitleaf Greatsword" "Falchion" "Lothric Knight Straite Sword" "Great Axe" And mostly every weapon that combos are good. But out of all the weapons the best one is definitely hands down "Sellsword Twinblades" the fact its a combo weapon and extremely quick is just insane and with the right stats u can almost guarantee 1 combo some people, even on SL120 ive 1 comboed none mage builds... the best stats for this weapon is Vig.39 End.18 Dex.40 Fai.60 with Yorshikas Chime, i suggest u wear Light armor since Sellswords Twinblades dosent have Hyper armor any way... And for Pvp tips i suggest u mainly punish attacks instead of being aggressive, the 1 down side of buff builds is how low stamina u have, so instead of being aggressive like u might think u want to, especially cause theres a time limit to ur buff, u should always wait for them to attack first and out space and punish there attacks, and if 1 combo cant kill them wait till they try to panic heal and punish their healing with another combo which usually finishes them off... despite the fact buff builds are strong they do need a good amount of skill to use, so try to learn how to do some spacing and learn not to be overly aggressive . Also to those that dont know u can combo by pressing R1orL1>L2>L1. Good luck invading!

Mimic head, gold cov ring and crystal rapier in in off hand while using the rusted coin. 60 luck, 48 int, 10 faith. Hope that help anyone trying to farm.

              Extremely easy to get, if your're going for all steam achevements.
              Just keep pushing towards all the rings while you're wearing the darkmoon convenant and you'll probably succeed before even getting all the rings.

              • Everybody is saying that this was a terrible grind but to be honest if you just use the covenant and get on with something else the passive gain is much quicker than you think I have gained 15 in not to long while also focusing on the other trophies!

                  Got 25 on NG from summons. Played normal, kept SL reasonable (end game at SL90) and covenant on at all times except when actively going for other covenant items. Even though the summons were hours apart it still did the trick. Every one summon win saves you 10-20 min of farming, totally worth it for zero risk.

                    The community is playing Demon Souls and it is extremely hard to farm offline. It will take many hours. Warmth and Darkmoon Blade are the worst to farm FFS 30 freaking 30. It is extremely frustrating for completionists. Demon Souls, Bloodborne and Sekiro we can honestly 100 percent those games in the time it takes to get these rank items.

                        For anyone wondering: no it does not deal dark damage it deals magic damage

                        darkmoon is the name of the covenant so for the love of god stop saying this deal dark damage

                          Ok so basically I did some not so complicated calculations. According to the wiki, with 350 item discovery and over, 30 knights reward 1 concord. That means for dmb, which requires 30 concords, you would need to kill (30×30)= 900 silver knights.
                          After some testing, with a 40/40 int and faith build, dark infused dagger, hornet ring, dark clutch ring, blindfold mask and using quickstep as an advantage, I was able to oneshot all three silver knights at the anor londo bonfire and walk back in approximately 50-60 seconds consistantly. Since one run is 3 silver knights, you would need to make (900÷3)= 300 runs
                          Considering one run alone is about a minute, that would take 300 minutes or about 5 hours to farm all concords.
                          TLDR: With a high critical weapon that can oneshot a silver knight with one backstab, even with 350+ item discovery, if you manage to complete one run in 1 minute, it would take a PVE player 5 hours of grinding to acquire this buff.
                          Do I think thats worth it?
                          No. Not at all. If you really wanted magic dmg on a miracle build, just increase int by 4 points(if at base int), slap on scholar ring and just buff your weapon with great magic weapon using the ritual spear. Is it as effective? Well only weaker by about 20 ar. Is it less time consuming? YES. Does it look as good? No, but certainly more effective damage to effort wise. Or better yet USE PALE PINE RESIN. Look, I understand why people would want to use this, but imo its just not worth 5 hours of my life to obtain. Yes, you can also invade to get it, but I find relying of invasions is a little ineffectient. Thank you for coming to my ted talk

                            For everyone complaining about the length of time it requires to get the needed amount of Concords, just join Blue Sentinels. Get summoned to fight invaders and get a concord if you succeed.

                                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

                                                  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?

                                                      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.

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.

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.
