Weapons That Have Moonlight Vortex

 

 

Notes & Information

  • On use: Assumes a brief stance and raises the sword with both hands at the left side of the player. Then, the sword charges with magic while thrusting it forward, generating a small "vortex" near the sword's point of impact.
    • Does not consume durability if attack misses.
    • The trust can be aimed on use, and can completely do a 180° turn if performed correctly.
    • Consumes moderate stamina on use (Approximately 60 stamina).
    • All stamina regeneration is halted until the animation ends. The player also cannot perform any other action until the sword thrust is finished.
  • Both the sword and the "projectile" can hit at the same time, leading to massive damage if both hit on the same target.
    • The sword thrust itself deals 25% less damage than a 2H R1. This is affected by both physical and magic resistances.
    • The generated vortex deals 30% more damage than a 2H R1. It also has slightly more range than the sword thrust itself. The damage done of the projectile is complely magical.
    • Because of this, buffs that increase general damage output (like Red Tearstone Ring's effect, or Sacred Oath) slightly benefit more this Weapon Art, if used at melee range.
  • Has very high poise health once the sword starts to glow, until the animation ends.
    • Because of this, if done too late, the player will get interrupted out of the stance, and nothing will happen.

If used without enough FP:
  • Consumes roughly 33% more stamina
  • Sword does not glow, and won't generate anything.
  • Thrust deals 35% less damage on impact.
  • Has reduced poise damage.
