Like it or not, samurai dominate elden ring. It’s a good class with some solid base stats and starting gear that can see you through the ending of the game if you treat them right and level them up. the Uchigatana is a particularly excellent beginner’s weapon, but there’s another sword that’s being praised by a growing fan base: the Moon Veil Katana.
The moon veil looks very similar to this rivers of blood and Uchigatana. That means it’s designed like a katana, a traditional Japanese-style curved blade and all. However, it is difficult to get. You must defeat a giant fire-breathing, sword-wielding salamander named Magma Wyrm in the depths of the Gael Tunnel, located on the border of Limgraf. This is a tough fight. Magma Wyrm is big and the circular arena is small, so navigating it sucks. The camera can also get stuck on the wall if you’re not careful, and Magma Wyrm has some attacks that will kill you in one hit. It’s an exercise in frustration.
However, if you manage to put an end to the savage Magma Wyrm, you will receive a Dragon Heart and the coveted Moon Veil. And let me tell you, this sword looks cool in action! It’s a magic-based katana with a high blood loss build and solid damage output that scales with Dexterity, Intelligence, and Strength. But what makes it so coveted is its weapon skill: Transient Moonlight. Similar to the Uchigatana’s Weapon Skill, holding the left shoulder button will encase the blade to unleash a swift strike, but in addition to this devastating physical attack, drawing the Moon Veil Katana also launches a wave of blue projectiles. This gives your tainted a melee weapon that can play at range.
Transient moonlight renders the lunar veil deadly. Also according to FromSoftware secretly annoyed it in a last patchThe katana still quickly builds up the Bloodloss status effect, hits hard when it’s upgraded, and shoots a Vergil out-Devil–To be allowed to–cry-like blade wave. In PvE, the weapon skill is a good way to land a few hits while maintaining distance. In PvP, it’s a godsend. This skill allows you to maintain pressure at close range and disrupt most cast animations at long range.
Being on the receiving end is such a nuisance that there are people on both sides of the blade. Some worship the moon veilsay it helped them Kill multiple bosses and invaders Back to back. Other call it broken because player Spam Transient Moonlight too often. There are even people who seem to hate the lunar veil so much, they named their tainted to convey this hatred to other players. Now that’s extreme.
I get it. Struggling with a weapon that fires a high-damage projectile on the fly must be frustrating in PvP. But at the same time, as a die-hard katana user, I totally nailed the moon veil. It’s the kind of weapon that inspires the otaku in me and allows me to roleplay my dreams as a ronin Rurouuni Kenshin or elden ring‘s very own samurai, the Bloody Finger Hunter Yura, instead of some ragged haze. Well, if only my ghost puppies and me could kill that damn Magma Wyrm…
