Moon Butterfly Set
|Requirements & Bonus|
Moon Butterfly Set is an Attire or Armor in Dark Souls 2. Armor sets do not provide specific benefits, so players are free to mix and match their preferred parts to optimize their Builds.
"Hat/pinions/cuffs/skirt made from wings of the rare moon butterfly. Poisons those who approach its wearer."
"Also extends jump distance."
"Little is known about the moon butterfly, which only appears on full-moon nights in winter. Some say the butterfly is a magical being, and its larvae have never once been spotted."
Effect(all): Poisons nearby foes
Wings/Skirt Effect: Increases length of jump
- Sold by Maughlin the Armourer on NG+ (35k, minus hat) and NG+2 (hat, 10k) once 15'000 souls have been spent at his store. Bonfire Ascetic can be used to achieve required bonfire intensity.
- Upgraded with Twinkling Titanite.
- Every piece of the set poisons nearby foes, including Mimics in hiding and Invisible Hollows.
- You can also hide the cuffs in a sleeve (e.g. Black Hollow Mage Robe) to poison your foes while unnoticed.
- IMPORTANT: Take off before approaching any NPC you don't want to aggro. Poison will affect any NPC that you can attack, including the Emerald Herald.
- Hat grants +1 INT.
- Wings (chest piece) and Skirt change rolling to jumping (allowing immediate jumps without sprinting) and increase jumping distance.
- Boots offer second highest poison resistance.
- Boots have the highest physical defense to weight ratio (but defense itself is low).
- It's still possible to roll in the opposite direction, and to backstep. This may save you in PVP. Rolling to the side is possible, but very difficult. More often than not, you'll leap.
- It is possible to immediately and consistently sprint and roll while wearing the wings without jumping simply by tapping forward before pressing the roll button.
- As of patch 1.10, the jump distance is shorter than without wings/skirt. Tested on PC and PS3 (further testing could be useful).
- If given to Rosabeth of Melfia, she will poison you when you talk to her, but it's safe if you stay at maximum talking range.
- The design appears to be a tribute to Berserk's "Roshinu".

not worth it except if you want to poison and aggro friendly NPCs or you are an ******* and want to twink invade low level players
Do you poison stuff more quickly for each piece of the set? Does the poison do more damage for each piece? Or is there no real point beyond fashion to wear more than just one part?
NG+ I accidentally poisoned Lenigrast and he attacked me and I killed him.
You can see and cheese mimics with this.
**** my emerald herald died.
"The design appears to be a tribute to Berserk's 'Roshinu' " "huh i wonder who that is never heard anyone talk about them" *looks up character* *character looks nothing like the set in any form* "was the person that wrote this high when writing this or a berserk simp?"
What an incredible waste of souls that was.
The poison build up is very slow (close to a full minute with two pieces) and its range absurdly low, less than arm reach. And it's ugly to boot.
Nevermind that I lost 30k to the wonky jump mechanics trying to get the ascetic at iron keep on top of that.
Nice low-risk way to deal with the bellkeepers at Belfry Luna. Just lure them to the top of the ladder and stay on the top rung while they slowly choke on your poisonous aura.
poison is not far enough for you to sneak behind an enemy without it noticing, but just about far enough to poison npc you try talking to
Here we go again with the non-existent Berserk reference.
To avoid turning basic rolls into jumps (and therefore allowing you to dodge properly) just leave the jump controls to the default left-stick. It is a control overlap because the set lets you jump without running. The game has priorities set to jumping over rolling, but on context basis. So if jump and roll are the same button, when you press it, the game first checks your status (run or walk). If running then jump context is allowed, so you jump before the roll input happens. If walking, then jump is locked out. so it checks, denies jump, goes to roll. ...
would wear this all the time if the vengeful butterfly spirit haunting this armor didn't poison every friendly npc
Wish the poison actually did damage because it does nothing but put a green fog on them and never poison them but at least I can jump
I'm 100% sure rolling doesn't make you jump. I heard it was a bug, so maybe it was fixed. I'm on the Scholar of the First Sin edition for PS4. I'm rolling in all directions without jumping at all. I wasted my souls and my only bonfire ascetic on this garage moon butterfly gear. Stop spreading misinformation and update the page.
WTE100 you can ask about pardon from one NPC in The Far Fire > Chapel Threshold
I bought this set from Maughlin, put it on, and then aggroed him
I didn't know it'd hurt friendly NPCs :(
Does anyone know if poison bonus actually applies to the poison effect of this set? I'm bouncing between 99 VIG/40ADP(assuming it doesn't so I can just tank) and 40 VIG/40 DEX/32 ADP(assuming it does, forcing me to actually care about poison bonus)
It's sad that this thing seems buggy. I tried it aaand... It looks like the moment I jump the set resets my movement, making me jump even worse! Good idea, but meh...
a year old comment saying the "rolls change to jumps" is a bug, and the page still isnt edited to reflect that
I'm pretty sure this is not available in version 1.00. Playing Xbox 360 without Xbox live or online in order to update and he just doesn't sell it going to ng+3 or bonfire ascetics.
Somebody help me.I cannot buy this armor or the dragonrider armor,even though i am on ng+6.I spent extra souls on both of them to be safe,but nothing happend.I am seriously confused.
How to bully people on a new character 101
best freakin outfit eva I slay in this
the rolling being turned into a leap is a bug that never got fixed. if you have the leap command bound to the 'b'/roll button, the leap animation takes over making it hard to manage a dodge when you need to. if you have the leap bound to the left stick instead, you can dodge roll as normal. (someone should update the info.)
careful this set could poison anyone near you
Rolling is weird, you leap towards the enemy when you try to roll back. wtf?
Hey everyone so I just discovered that with the arch-drake robes, the blue cleric start out gear you can also hide MOST of the leg piece :) with the exceptions of a hole in the leg where a tiny bit of the red comes through but if you are a sunbro phantom you can easily hide that too :)
Also the butterfly shield is in the chest upstairs, inside his shop, NG++
He will not sell the set if you kill him even if you revive and spend 16k souls.
I tried spend and close/open menu, leave his dialogue box and reopen it and buy, sit at bonfire then revive again and buy: Nothing.
Not sure what happens if you kill him after spending 16k
If you've already killed him what you do is either complete game and go to NG+ or make a new charr, which ever suits you.
I'm still in NG, and Maughlin is actually selling me this set. What's going on? I just got done slaying Smelter Demon and went to buy the set for the sake of completion, and there it was - minus the hat, curiously.
If you have jump R3 you can roll and sprint with o without leaping forward
do i need to have exactly NG+ to get the set or does it matter if the intensity is higher than that?
