The Blade of the Darkmoon is a covenant in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

When a member of the Way of Blue faces a dark spirit, the Blades of the Darkmoon, by an ancient accord, help to root out the invader.


The player must have obtained the "Darkmoon Loyalty" gesture from Sirris of the Sunless Realms by talking to her in Firelink Shrine after giving the Dreamchaser's Ashes to the Shrine Handmaid. Should the player anger or kill Sirris before doing this, it will be impossible to obtain the gesture. Offering a Pale Tongue to Rosaria will end Sirris' questline prematurely, but has no consequence on joining the covenant itself once the gesture has been obtained.

How to join[]

Obtained from Company Captain Yorshka upon talking to her and performing the "Darkmoon Loyalty" gesture at the Prison Tower in Irithyll of the Boreal Valley.

The tower can be reached via the rotating staircase that connects Irithyll to Anor Londo. An invisible pathway leading to the tower can be accessed from the lower level of the staircase when it is raised.


Blade of the Darkmoon functions identically to Blue Sentinels, where equipping the covenant item will place the player in a queue to be summoned into the world of a player who is affiliated with the Way of Blue should they be invaded by a red or purple dark spirit. In order to achieve victory, the player must defend the Way of Blue Adherent from the invading dark spirit, either by defeating the dark spirit or safely escorting the host into the boss fog of the area. Upon completion of their mission, the blue spirit will be rewarded with a Proof of a Concord Kept. If an Aldrich Faithful is slain, the blue spirit will be rewarded with a Proof of a Concord Well Kept.

Blue spirits will remain in the host's world so long as offending dark spirits are present, making it possible to obtain multiple Proofs in a single session. Blue spirits will not be summoned when Watchdogs of Farron or Aldrich Faithful invade a player's world through their covenant item.

Proofs may be offered to Yorshka to deepen allegiance to the covenant.
