Sunlight Blade (太陽の光の剣) is a miracle in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Miracle wielded by Lord Gwyn's firstborn. Boost right weapon with rays of Sun.
The power of sunlight, manifested as lightning, is very effective against dragons.
When the eldest son was stripped of his deific status, he left this on his father's coffin, perhaps as a final farewell.

Availability[]

Found in a chest down Dark Sun Gwyndolin's hallway after killing him. This miracle's location makes it impossible to use while part of the Blade of the Darkmoon covenant until NG+.

General information[]

Sunlight Blade may only be used on enchantable weapons that are upgraded down the Standard, Raw, or Crystal paths, as well as a limited amount of exceptions.

Sunlight Blade adds 1.8x the equipped talisman's magic adjust in Lightning Damage to the equipped weapon. This makes it potentially the second-strongest weapon augmentation after only Darkmoon Blade if the wielder is on +1 or higher level in the Blade of the Darkmoon covenant. Sunlight Blade has the advantage over Darkmoon Blade in many situations even with the increased Magic Damage of the Darkmoon Blade, as most armor and most enemies have less Lightning resistance than magic resistance, and spells like Great Magic Barrier cannot be used to defend against lightning.

In-Game Description

かつて太陽の光の長子が振るった奇跡 右手の武器を太陽の光の力で強化する
太陽の光の力とは、すなわち雷であり 特に竜族には、大きな威力を発揮するだろう
空っぽの大王の棺に備えられたそれは 神を追われた彼の、別れの言葉だったろうか

In-Game Description

It was once a miracle held by the firstborn of the Sunlight. Allows to strengthen the weapon in the right hand with the power of the light of the Sun.
The power of Sunlight is lightning, which is especially powerful against the race of the dragons.
This miracle was abandoned before the empty coffin of the Great King. Did this symbolize a final farewell on the part of the one who was expelled among the gods?
