Greatsword made of light, modeled after the Elden Ring itself.
Forged by King Consort Radagon to proudly symbolize the tenets of the Golden Order.

      A Golden Order weapon that doesn't scale off both Int and faith isn't a Golden Order weapon it's just a regular faith weapon.

        am i gonna say it? yeah........i feel like this should have been the weapon that the elden beast uses, Like instead of using the sacred relic sword use it, and explain in the lore that radagon gave it to the beast over his hammer, not sure what you would do with the sacred relic sword after but thats my opinion.

          Hey PvPers, listen not to the naysayers! This weapon kicks ass against other players, especially if paired with radagons rings of light as a bit of a trick. Use the explosion to hit anyone who’s too close for comfort, and the follow up slash if they dodge it, often times they don’t expect it or they dodge the fake out slash. Highly recommend!

            Kinda weird how this one isn't pure holy like Coded Sword and Cipher Pata, since it doesn't have any physical components.

            • Anonymous

              This thing in invasions isn't actually as bad as I thought it would be. On my holy setup I mainly use this, 2 golden lightsabers and wrath of gold.. with the first hit stun being half decent and getting a little hyper armor the ash is a good trade bait and I catch more people in the wave after panic rolling if I can get them hit by the first part. Pretty fun

              • I don't get why this thing needs so much dex to wield. Neither do I understand the 10 weight units. It's pure light except the handle. But what makes absolutely no sense is it not scaling with int AND faith. It is a golden order weapon. All golden order spells need quite a lot of int investment. What a wasted opportunity to give golden order builds a good melee option. Even tho it's still very good without int scaling.

                  Needing to do the whole animation is dumb and kills yet another legendary weapon.. should've either gotten a buff like dmgs or been chain castable

                  • Anonymous

                    In PVP this thing is pretty raunchy.
                    Lag makes the wave timing not match up with the visual so you can still get hit, not to mention it’s range its ridiculous. It’s easily avoidable with a good connection, but if not don’t bother dodging just block or something.

                      I love this thing, however the 2nd part of its AoW is really bad.
                      I wish it's AoW was just the explosion, and then it buffed your R2s to shoot beams like DMGS.

                        Looks like Troll Knight's Greatsword, not the Darkmoon Greatsword. That is probably more interesting as well.

                          Why the **** does this not have the same sword beam buff with the AoW as dark moon greatsword, but with holy instead of magic? If it did this would be the only weapon I ever use. I get that the DMGS's AoW is just the buff so it'd be a little weird to try and get them to be the same when they're already so different, but I'd ****in put up with slapping the DMGS's FP consumption on the 2nd input slash if it gave the buff.

                            This was the original Moonlight Greatsword. Radagon made it into FTH weapon because he could. I get it, FTH builds could use their own version, but instead of Rennala's nicer looking Moonlight GS, we got Ranni's frosty hand-me-down.

                              Why this has such a high Dex requirement and the Moonlight greatsword doesnt??? They are supposed to be equivalents

                                Incredible how every legendary weapon seems to either require Intelligence, Faith or Arcane. If you are playing a full STR playthrough, you can't enjoy using them!

                                  Skill literally produces the Golden Order incantation symbol but has no int requirement. Let me remind you that this is the only family of Incantations that has a spell that is INT only and 37 INT at that. No incantation from this family has solely faith stat requirements. Not to mention the damn thing is based of the Moonlight Sword. Just straight goofy.

                                    Despite it not being the best option for dmg, this sword is pleasing to the eye. I carry it around as my 2nd blade along with the Blasphemous Blade, the passive from the Blasphemous blade is just too amazing along with its Ash to not carry it.

                                      Lore-wise, the end-result of a **** move. Gameplay-wise, an otherwise decent weapon though you'd be wanting something with more firepower.

                                        Need someone to confirm if my memory fails me. At 1.06 the attack and ash of war can prevent skeleton to revive like how Golden Epitaph works, which I remember it wasn't before? My character just started NG+ so I only tested with the skeleton at summonwater village (both mob and summon of marine).

                                          Ah yes fromsoft games where a poisonous plant can be poisoned, the goddess of rot can be scarlet rotted, a fully armored knight can be easily bled and the most lore significant damage type is also the weakest.

                                            Faith users rate my idea

                                            I'm going for a faith/dex sort of thing where I powerstance the balsphemous blade and the golden order greatsword. I've got plenty more points into faith than dex bc of the better scaling too. In my off hand, i've got the erdtree seal to swap for the golden order greatsword for the occasional incantation i.e. golden order, fgms, etc.

                                              Some halfwit saying too many cool weapons have been ruined by doing holy damage proves beyond any doubt they are not very bright. It isn't the weapons doing holy damage that are the problem. The problem is the idiot design decision to give the majority of enemies a stupidly high damage negation to holy apart from "those who live in death" especially when taking into account how much of the game's story and lore involves the golden order and the erdtree.

                                                Man, it really took them more than a decade to add the 'Faith laser sword' from Demon's Souls back. About time, imo- Faith has never felt more fun.

                                                  Be warned, for whatever reason, probably an oversight; this sword is entirely unaffected by the 1.06 patch.

                                                  At the time of writing, it's speed is noticably slower then all other greatswords except the Sacred Relic Greatsword.

                                                      Why do so many greatswords scale with dex? Especially unique greatswords with faith or int...its hard to find an interesting looking strength weapon.

                                                        I respecced just to use this against the death [rite] bird punks. The holy damage and bonus against undead works great.

                                                        The consecrated snowfield bird would be more fun if the artillery mausoleum could hurt it too.

                                                            For a pure Fth caster (80) build, Inserarable Sword and Sacred Claymore seems like a better option.

                                                            For a Dex/Fth hybrid (55/50) build, Sacred Relic Sword outshined this thing in everyway.

                                                                    • Looks good, but I was not impressed by WA. Maybe I need to do more testing, but Gargoyle's Greatsword with Lion's Claw or Double Slash seems way more effective. And it is a str/fai sword unlike Golden Order Greatsword.

The only thing WoG has over Establish Order's explosion is cast speed, knockback, and slightly more damage if you charge it which takes longer.

For one thing the Golden Order is this game’s designated Int/Fai faction, so it makes sense that the weapon most visually and mechanically aligned with the Order would require both. For another, I just like those sorts of DS1 Greatsword of Artorias design weapons that require high stats for (at least in theory) a high payoff. Cool weapon, though.

                                                                                            What’s truly baffling is you will rarely see this weapon in PvP. Combine its AoE hyper armor with 70+ poise and you can disrupt and out trade meta “great pokes”

                                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                                    It is a sword made of literal light...
                                                                                                    You know...? Like the Cypher Pata...? SO WHY IN MARIKA'S TITS DOES IT WEIGH SO MUCH!
                                                                                                    IT SHOULD BE 0 weight! :v

                                                                                                    Also, what in Radagon's name is this freaking scaling and stat requirement!? Did someone have a stroke?!
                                                                                                    This is a weapon that has NO REASON in having such a high dex requirement, let alone ANY strength or dexterity requirement/scaling!
                                                                                                    It should require like 35/35 in Intelligence AND Faith with at least a B scaling in each at +10!!!

                                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                                      So disappointing. This weapon could have been so much more if they bothered.

                                                                                                      Despite being made of light, it has a regular weight of 10.00.

                                                                                                      Despite being a "Golden Order" greatsword, it only scales with Faith, meaning it does not synergize with the Golden Order seal.

                                                                                                      Lastly, it's found in a random cave wielded by a random duplicate miniboss. No reason, it's just there. At the very end of the game, so you can't get it early, which is a real shame. There, now it's a completely unique weapon that can give the extremely niche Int/Fai builds a weapon to use that isn't the sword of night and flame.

                                                                                                      If I were to redesign this weapon, I would completely remove the physical damage and replace it with magical, and then have it scale with Intelligence and Faith. Make it weightless too.

                                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                                        This thing ****in RIPS. Doing INT/FTH and dual wielding this in the main hand and Dark Moon in the offhand and it destroys. The weapon skill combo on the golden order (L2 twice) knocks stuff back on both hits, and the range both horizontally and distance projected are much further than the Dark Moon at the cost of increased FP use. However, with Dark Moon in the off hand, I can enchant it with its weapon skill and two-hand it at will for faster projectiles with magic affinity. They both scale B off their respective caster attribute, and D on dex which is pretty useful. I feel like a true Golden Order Wizard of the Stars with the Prince of Death Staff and Golden Order Seal. Even if that doesn’t quite make sense, it looks and feels super cool. Very effective weapon I recommend it for anyone utilizing holy damage as part of their build. Even if you’re not equipping it 100% of the time, it’s useful to carry with you to throw out some long distance holy damage that slaps things to the floor. Dark Moon projectiles are still better for poise damage, but that’s what makes having both so great.

                                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                                          I think it’s the Faith Equivalent of Darkmoon GS, which might explain why it scales mainly with faith instead of both.

                                                                                                          • Anonymous

Considering its theme, the skill on it producing a Golden Order Fundamentalist Symbol AND being derived from a Dark Moon Greatsword. Would've honestly preferred Intelligence requirements / scaling, whilst lowering the physical requirements.

                                                                                                            • Anonymous
