Elden Ring’s Moonveil Katana is a strong weapon with a great weapon art. Find out where to find it and what is required to wield it!
Elden Ring is full of secrets, awesome weapons, and magic. Sometimes, you can find something which is a mix of all three!
The Moonveil Katana is one of these. While it’s a powerful weapon, it can be found early on in-game, making it one of the best early-game weapons in Elden Ring.
However, you can only find it in a certain area, and you’re required to defeat a pretty tough boss. However, it’s worth risking your hard-earned Runes!
Here’s where to get the Moonveil Katana in Elden Ring, and why it’s a great choice for those focusing on INT/DEX builds!
Where To Get The Moonveil Katana In Elden Ring
The Moonveil Katana can be found in the Gael Tunnel, on the border between Limgrave and Caelid.
If you’ve entered Caelid from Limgrave, you’ve likely encountered the Smoldering Church and its Site of Grace namesake. From here, head South-East along the cliff bordering the two areas and you’ll find a path of torches, leading into a cave.
Enter the cave and drop down, being careful not to die from fall damage. Fight (or run past, we’re not judging) the enemies until you reach a large wooden door.
Before opening the door, head to the left of it and through a smaller wooden door to find the Rear Gael Tunnel Site of Grace. Activate that, and head back through to the large wooden door and open it.
This will active the Magma Wyrm boss fight. He’s slightly difficult for under-leveled characters due to the small area the fight takes place. Keep your dodging up, as his attacks are fairly easy to avoid.
Upon his death, the Magma Wyrm will drop the Moonveil Katana. Once you’ve got it, simply use the blue light to exit the cave and equip your brand new sword!
The Moonveil Katana’s weapon art, or Ash of War, is the Transient Moonlight. Holding the weapon skill button and then using either the light or heavy attack will cause a mid-range slash of light.
What Are The Stat Requirements For The Moonveil Katana
The Moonveil Katana requires you to have 12 Strength, 18 Dexterity, and 23 Intelligence.
Moonveil scales with Strength, Dexterity, and Intelligence too, with an E, D, and C rating for each respectively.
It also causes a Blood Loss build-up, providing extra damage output for those struggling to bring down those enemy health bars!
This makes it a great choice for those wanting to build a Magic/Melee build. Even at a base level, the weapon is pretty incredible.
