    Moonlight Greatsword

    Very few know the exact process used to create this blade, but, from what could be deciphered from the many books located in the Dragon's Mansion, this glorious azure sword was forged from the flames of donzens of dragons. Its blaze is so great that it emits a blue flame when the user bridges the gap between their soul and the sword's.

    *Deals Magic Damage
    * 1H Strong Attack sets the sword on blue fire, that is used to make it ignore shields and (partially) armor.
    *2H Strong Attack is the Demon's Soul's Storm Ruler R2, obviously balanced for general purposes.

    (For those that don't get the Strong Attack, it is creating a large pillar of flame emitting from the sword, only to slam it down on the ground with incredible force)

    Because a sword like this sounds totally boss!

    Well... At least it still looks cool.

    The worst nerf they could possibly do to it is make it ugly.

    What did it do in games older than DeS?
    Since it happens in the same world, i guess it will have the same function (that is, if you fight seath to cut his tail off)

    its usual ability is what we have in dark souls, shooting blades of energy. If you look up a game called Otogi by Fromsoft the Moonlight sword was the ultimate weapon and when u used strong attacks beams of energy were fired from the blade. This is also true in the Armored Core series. Personally the energy blade is the most legit R2 for it given its history but I always like new stuff so I wouldn't mind another break from tradition like in Demon Souls happy

    I honestly dont care what it does but how it's obtained. Demon souls made you fight slugs and Dark souls put you through the hell that is cutting seath's tail. I'd love to see something like....


    A knight sitting on the stone remains of a ceiling gazing at the moon. It's glowing cold light borrowed from the sun bathes the knight's old blade.

    "You know.."
    "I've sat in this room every night gazing at the moon."
    "My hands have grow stiff and numb from the air"
    "I cannot even protect myself from the creatures the roam these halls anymore"
    "There, in the light behind me is my sword."
    "I've neglected it because of these hands, I cannot even look at it anymore.."
    "Take it. Warm its hilt for me. At least, with you, it will see the sun again"

    Will you take the blade? [YES] [NO]

    Answer [YES]: "I hope it serves you well."
    Answer [NO]: "That is a shame.."


    If you answer YES then you'll get a Straight sword variant. If you answer NO and come back after a few boss fights then the blade will have grown in size due to further exposure to the moonlight and you'll get the Two handed variant. If you answer NO and leave the sword alone till the moment before the final boss and go back to retrieve it; you'll get the Ultra great sword variant. When you take the sword and go back after resting at a bonfire, the knight will no longer be there.


    Moonlight Sword's Description:
    "A transparent blade bathed in the moon's light. It is said that there is a way to create a bond between living things by standing in circles of light.

    The lore basically meaning that because the knight and sword both sat in the moonlight, it slowly fused his soul and mind into the blade. The sword's ghostly edge is the knight's soul.

    I would be 100% behind that man! plus we know the day and night along with the weather are supposed to affect stuff in game, that would fit nicely with the direction they're going (see now you got my hopes up that something like that really will happen :I)

    The game or rather the series everyone is thinking of is Kings Field. It was also in the Armored Core series as a gun of some sort I think.

    I would like it to be a straight sword, that's is smaller than it was in the last two games. Maybe it could have its own special damage type? Moonlight damage? Hard to defend against.

    I think next time they HAVE to make it either bigger or smaller- they've run out of things they can do with it as a greatsword really for now..

    Ultra GS would be fun, though I'd really like to see a straight sword version of it...

    I look forward to the next magic scaled rapier too..

    People pls, it will be a Greatsword, there's no way around it. You can't just take something based off a different game and make it something else.

    i kinda hope they make it a faith weapon again but in DkS2 turn holy damage into an actual damage type instead of just a modifier because its kinda stupid that fth is the enemy of magic yet all faith weapons and offensive miracles do magic damage (with the exception of the lightning spears doing lightning) Faith needs its own damage type!!!!

    FromSoftware, hire this guy for your lore. This is damn brilliant. Even though I still don't have good enough stats to properly wield the Moonlight Sword in Dark Souls, I say this is damn creative. How'd you come up with all that? Praise the Sun
