Holy Moonlight Sword is a Trick Weapon in The Old Hunters DLC.

Description

In-Game Description

An arcane sword discovered long ago by Ludwig.
When blue moonlight dances around the sword, and it channels the abyssal cosmos, its great blade will hurl a shadowy lightwave.
The Holy Moonlight Sword is synonymous with Ludwig, the Holy Blade, but few have ever set eyes on the great blade, and whatever guidance it has to offer, it seems to be of a very private, elusive sort.

Availability

  • Found on Ludwig's head on the Underground Corpse Pile after the fight against him. You can choose to kill him, or answer his questions and wait for him to die. Alternatively, you can leave the area and come back, and you will be treated with the appearance of Simon, who has finished off Ludwig himself. After a short dialogue, he gives you the sword.
  • After receiving the regular version, the Lost and Uncanny variants can be purchased from the Bath Messengers in the Chalice Dungeons.

Characteristics

The Holy Moonlight Sword is an interesting weapon to say the least. While it has great physical stats and Arcane Stats, its moveset is great in almost every way. When transformed it has added Arcane damage. Every strong attack will expend a Quicksilver Bullet while throwing an Arcane wave at an enemy. It's special two-handed attack is also good because when thrusting in a certain direction, the player will shoot a burst in that direction. So even if the maximum damage is not achieved, at least players won't be able to flank around you.

Notes

  • The Holy Moonlight Sword's damage is all Blunt and Arcane except for two moves.
  • Every strong attack and special attack expends a Quicksilver Bullet, the only exception is the Transformation attack.
  • This weapon deals 50% Righteous Damage in both modes.

Trivia

  • It appears that this weapon served as the inspiration to Ludwig's Holy Blade. Even some attacks are the same, and the player holds it when transformed, in the exact same manner.
  • This weapon is wielded by Ludwig, this is interesting as he shares his name with legendary german composer Ludwig van Beethoven. One of his more well known compositions is called the "Moonlight Sonata".
  • The blade glows in the dark when transformed.
  • The "Holy Moonlight Sword" is a recurring weapon that appears in almost all of From Software's games, in one incarnation or another. Its Demon's Souls version was called "Large Sword of Moonlight", whereas in the Dark Souls' series it is referred to as "Moonlight Greatsword".
