Holy Moonlight Sword
An arcane sword discovered long ago by Ludwig.
When blue moonlight dances around the sword, and it
channels the abyssal cosmos, its great blade will hurl a
The Holy Moonlight Sword is synonymous with Ludwig, the
Holy Blade, but few have ever set eyes on the great blade,
and whatever guidance it has to offer, it seems to be of a
very private, elusive sort.
Ludwig's Holy Blade
A trick weapon typically used by Healing Church hunters.
It is said that the silver sword was employed by Ludwig,
the first hunter of the church. When transformed, it
combines with its sheath to form a greatsword.
The Healing Church workshop began with Ludwig, and
departed from old Gherman's techniques to provide
hunters with the means to hunt more terrifying beasts,
and perhaps things still worse.
A rifle typically used by Healing Church hunters.
It is said that the rifle was employed by Ludwig,
the first hunter of the church. It's long heavy barrel
makes up in range for what it lacks in reload speed.
Ludwig's Rifle exhibits several departures from the
workshop's design, suggesting that the Church
anticipated much larger inhuman beasts.
Radiant Sword Hunter Badge
One of the badges crafted by the Healing Church
The radiant sword indicates the heirs to the will of Ludwig.
These hunters, also known as Holy Blades, are what remains
of an ancient line of heroes that date back to a very early
age of honor and chivalry.
A Caryll rune discovered by the old hunter Ludwig along with the Holy Moonlight Sword.
Boosts amount of life recovered by rallying.
"When Ludwig closed his eyes, he saw darkness, or perhaps nothingness, and that is where he discovered the tiny beings of light.
Ludwig was certain that these playful dancing sprites offered "guidance"
and emptied Ludwig of his fears at least in the midst of a hunt.
Yharnam Hunter Cap
Ludwig, the first hunter of the Healing Church, once
recruited Yharnamites to serve as hunters.
This hunter's attire was made for new recruits, and has
excellent straightforward defense.
But not nearly enough to allow an ordinary man
to stand any real chance against the beasts.
Ludwig, the Accursed/Holy Blade dialogue: Dialogue after Ludwig reaches half of his health bar:
"Aah, you were at my side, all along.
My true mentor…
My guiding moonlight…"
Dialogue after defeating Ludwig while NOT wearing Church Hunter attire:
"Good hunter, have you seen the thread of light?
Just a hair, a fleeting thing, yet I clung to it, steeped as I was in the stench of blood and beasts.
I never wanted to know, what it really was. Really, I didn't."
(He will then proceed to wail and howl wildly until you kill him, or speak to him while wearing Church Hunter attire.)
Dialogue after defeating Ludwig while wearing Church Hunter attire:
"Good Hunter of the Church,
Have you seen the light?
Are my Church Hunters the honorable spartans I hoped they would be?
“Ah, good…that is a relief.
To know I did not suffer such denigration for nothing.
Thank you kindly. Now I may sleep in peace.
Even in this darkest of nights, I see…the moonlight…"
Just as I feared.
Then a beast-possessed degenerate was I, as my detractors made eminently clear
Does the nightmare never end?!"
German, the First Hunter’s dialogue: After defeating the Blood-starved Beast and recovering the Pthumeru Chalice:
"The Healing Church, and the Blood Ministers who belong to it…
were once guardians of the hunters, in the times of the hunter…Ludwig.
They worked, and forged weapons, in their unique workshop.
Today, most ministers don't recall the hunters.
And so, heed the message of your forebears. Ascend to Oedon Chapel."
Simon, the Harrowed dialogue: If he kills Ludwig:
"Oh, he's well and truly gone, now.
A tragic figure. But he will shame himself no longer.
He died with his ideals untarnished.
He was a true hero, and earnt that much, at least.
Here, this is Ludwig's guiding Light.
The blinding thread, that lead, and mislead, that consummate hero.
The poor brute."
