The Moonlight Greatsword is a unique greatsword in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Legendary dragon weapon associated with Seath the paledrake.
Charge strong attack to its limit to unleash moonlight wave.
Oceiros, the Consumed King, was infatuated with the search for moonlight, but in the end, it never revealed itself to him.
Skill: Moonlight Vortex
Draw sword back and thrust to unleash torrential moonlight.


Obtained by transposing the Soul of Consumed Oceiros with Ludleth of Courland.


Unlike in the previous Souls games, the Moonlight Greatsword inflicts both physical and magical damage, as well as being given stat scaling in Strength and Dexterity, albeit poorly. The player's Strength and Dexterity influence the physical damage inflicted, while Intelligence will influence the magical damage dealt. It has a rather high requirement in Intelligence in order to be used effectively, though, as well as a high weight, being 1.5 units heavier than the Claymore.

Charging up either the one-handed or two-handed strong attacks will unleash a wave of moonlight energy forward, at the cost of 4 Durability per use. The moonlight waves inflict only magical damage; however, hitting an enemy with both the blade and the moonlight wave at close range will result in not only physical damage but also heavy magical damage being dealt.

Weapon skill overview

The player grasps the pommel of the sword with both hands and reels back, building up energy in the blade. After a brief period, the player thrusts the blade forward, creating a powerful, spear-like form of moonlight that pulses out of the blade, inflicting heavy magical damage to anything in front of the player, and some physical damage to enemies struck by the sword. Being a thrust attack, it can counterattack enemies, as well as benefit from the effects of the Leo Ring.





Reinforced with Titanite Scale.
