      It says that you won't be able to use it if you leave the covenant, but it doesnt leave the inventory right? Trying to unlock the All miracles achievement and after im done with this one im going to leave the covenant to do the others, just want to be sure i dont waste 10 Souvernirs

        At 50 faith, this does 6 magic damage less than a 50 int Moonlight Greatsword. You can put stuff on a dagger. 474 magic + the physical damage VS 480 magic damage

          If we take the most powerful form of this, then multiply it by the highest magic adjustment, we get +504 added damage to any weapon. this is the best buff in the game.

            So it says you need to be in the blades of the dark moon covenant to use it but can I use it without being in the covenant?

                    Rakuyo, it might be more appropriate to speculate about Gwyndolin's links to other loosely associated works on the page for Gwyndolin. I'm not a fan of the link itself at all personally, but linking it to a miracle associated with a covenant associated with a character that a fan wrote a theory about how it connected to a loosely associated work, seems like a bit of a stretch as far as related material is concerned. Especially since most of the Notes section contains information specifically about the game mechanics of the miracle. Unless, of course, your article talks about the significance of the specific miracle and how it associates to Berserk and Bloodborne. In which case, just changing the description to reflect that would be fine.

                      If I leave blades of the dark moon and rejoin at a later time, will it decrease my rank? I gave them 30 souvenirs

                        You dumbass. What part of Naruto Fanworks do you not understand? Only Naruto fanfics are allowed here. And this isn't even a real fanfic either. Go take your shit to some crappy forum.

                          Man, Rakuyo's real insistent about getting these bananas theories out there. Yes, we get it, Gwyndolin looks vaaaguely like Griffith, but that doesn't constitute as a *tHeOrY,* and the desperate connections to Bloodborne are half-baked at best.
