Legendary sorcery associated with the Carian queen.
Uses the caster as a vessel to incarnate a cold, dark moon, then sends it floating toward foes. The dark moon dispels all sorcery that touches it, and temporarily reduces magic damage negation for those it strikes.
This moon was encountered by a young Ranni, led by the hand of her mother, Rennala. What she beheld was cold, dark and veiled in occult mystery.

- This sorcery is boosted by the Carian Regal Scepter, as well as the Snow Witch Hat.
- This sorcery deals magic damage, and will build Frostbite (270) on vulnerable enemies. It is possible it will apply it immediately.
- Reduces the target's magic negation by 10%. If this manages to trigger Frostbite on your target, which reduces damage negation by a further 20%, total reduction is around ~30%.
- Damage negation lasts for one minute.
- This spell reduces damage negation. It does not mean an enemy will take 10% more damage. The amount of increased damage a target will take is thus based upon how much magic negation they have.
- Ranni's Dark Moon draws in other sorcery in its path and cancels them out.
- Further testing may be required to determine exactly when this property begins.
- While it may have incredibly high damage, Ranni's Dark Moon has a long casting animation and can be canceled if struck by an enemy before the projectile launches.
- This is a Defense Shred Debuff and will not stack with other debuffs of the same type.
- See Buffs and Debuffs for more information on stacking debuffs.
