    Darkmoon Blade is more powerful if you're Darkmoon+3, but enemies tend to have lower Lighting Defense, so if you don't want to be tied to the DM covenant Sunlight Blade is the better choice.

    Tough call. The Darkmoon Blade for a +3 DM is stronger and it also deals magic damage to players. However the DMB's magic buff is negated against players with strong magic defense and anti-magic shield buff. The Sunlight blade does not deal a higher damage rating like a +3 Darkmoon but deals lighting which some have low defense for. I would have to say the Sunlight blade for the moment due to the lighting.

    Sunlight Blade. Because who would ever be a Darkmoon? And SLB looks better than DMB.

    SLB for me.  DMB is only slightly more powerful.  But, it is very restrictive.  Also, as mentioned above, more people have higher magic defense than lightning defense.  

    DMB has barely any advantage and a big disadvantage.  On top of that, you can't stack DMB like you can SLB.

    SLB, there is always a good chance of running into a player with a high magic defense however the chance of running into someone with a high lightning isn't as likely.

    Not to mention, there isn't any type of shield that can completely block physical damage that still has a high lightning defense too.

    If you want some damage figures and stats I did some testing a while back with both buffs. The results are here.

    Even counting higher magic defenses, dmb almost always does more damage (though not a whole lot, we're talking maybe 50, tops.) It is also restricted to DMs, and shut down by gmb.

    Which is better depends on the situation, any time gmb is involved slb wins out, when its not dmb is better. Its not worth joining the dms to get, its just a plus if you're already a member, and if you go to ng+ then you can have both (get slb in ng, join dms in NG+)
