Sunlight Blade 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.


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.
