The Crescent Moon Sword is an unorthodox Shotel-type weapon which utilizes the "heavy curved sword" moveset of the Falchion. Because its scaling is oriented towards Dexterity and Intelligence, it is generally wielded by builds that utilize Sorceries. Because of its ability to deal Magic damage and deal damage through shields, the Crescent Moon Sword is particularly specialized for breaking through defensive enemies.

Its weapon art, Crescent Blade, also allows it to fire Magic projectiles after a short delay, giving it a measure of ranged damage that can be combined with Sorceries to become a major ranged threat.
