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... 

Acquired From:

  • Inherited from Benhart of Jugo. Player must summon him three times and defeat the boss with him surviving the fight, then speak to him in Drangleic Castle or the Memory of Orro to receive his equipment.
  • The player may instead kill him for the blade, but will gain sin when doing so.



Hints and Tips:

  • Upgraded with regular Titanite to +10.
  • If you inherit his equipment instead of killing him for it, you gain an achievement/trophy.
  • Uses Mastodon Greatsword moveset.
  • Gains a D (C on +10) bonus in int for the enchanted upgrade path, but not for any other path.
  • Despite this, most people would be better off going with the Raw upgrade path, as you would need well over 80 INT for the Enchanted version of this weapon to come close to the Raw version.
  • Benhart believes the sword contains power that only a true swordsman can unlock. Unfortunately, the blade is a fake. Maughlin the Armourer will confirm this if you take the blade to him. (If Maughlin is in his final stage, where he yells "I'm rich, I'm rich!", he will not say anything about the sword).
  • Quite useful when infused with Raw or Enchanted.
  • Despite it being a "fake", the thick blade bears a closer resemblance to the Moonlight Greatsword from both Demon's Souls and Dark Souls.

      You know, it's long been my headcanon that Benhart knows exactly what his sword is: He treasures it because it's an old family heirloom, and he never actually claims it's some kind of magical blade. He just says that "only a true man can wield it right." I figure what he means by that is that it's the skill of the swordsman that matters, not any inherent quality of the weapon. He probably wouldn't even be interested in the real Moonlight Greatsword considering it's a pure Intelligence weapon, and Benhart kinda doesn't strike me as the type who'd consider intelligence and magic talent to be the best quality of a manly warrior.

        "If Maughlin is in his final stage, where he yells "I'm rich, I'm rich!", he will not say anything about the sword" He does, actually.

          An enchanted bluemoon greatsword +10 at 99 INT will only do 415 AR whereas a raw bluemoon greatsword +10 will do 431 AR, if you want to be using this sword for physical damage the raw infusion is the way to go as it completely outclasses the enchanted infusion.

            Despite being a "fake," I would actually highly recommend this weapon. Yes, it has low durability, but if used sparingly in PVE, or used in PVP area matches, this sword can shine as brightly as a full moon in September.
