The Bluemoon Greatsword is a greatsword in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

The blade of this greatsword shines like the brilliant rays of the moon. In the oldest legends, rarely spoken of today, it is said that the sword was born of a great white being.
Then, what explains this lifeless weapon?
Perhaps there has been some mistake...


  • Benhart of Jugo will give the sword to the player after he has survived at least three boss fights as a summon. A Bonfire Ascetic can be used to respawn the same boss and it will still count toward the three fights required.
  • Benhart will drop the weapon upon death.


Despite not having any parameter bonuses, the Bluemoon Greatsword hits quite hard due to its high base damage, as well as possessing a fair amount of poise damage per hit. Additionally, its critical attacks can be lethal, dealing much more damage than a standard weapon of its class is capable of.

However, it requires a sizable amount of strength to be wielded effectively and is one of the heavier greatswords found in the game, at a weight of 15.0 units, making high vitality a necessity for builds that plan to utilize this weapon alongside heavier armor or weapons. Furthermore, the weapon has a very low amount of durability, so care should be taken not to overwork the weapon between bonfires. Should it break, however, it is very cheap to repair, costing only a minimal amount of souls to do so.

Since the weapon has no forms of scaling, it is an excellent candidate for a raw infusion, allowing the weapon's maximum damage potential to be drawn out. If the player has the right balance of stats, a mundane infusion is also a solid choice. Finally, players with high intelligence may be able to infuse it with a Magic Stone to get even more damage than what a raw infusion provides.

  • Upgrades with Titanite, unlike the actual Moonlight Greatsword which requires Petrified Dragon Bones.
  • The Bluemoon Greatsword can easily be mistaken for the Moonlight Greatsword due to their similar appearance. However, the Moonlight Greatsword has a longer, thinner blade and is lighter in color.


  • When taken to Maughlin the Armorer, he will claim that it is fake and suggest that the true sword may be found elsewhere, although if the player speaks to him enough with most weapons, he will say the same thing.
