If you are a speedrunner, this is your preferred weapon to mesh the bosses rapidly. The Transient Moonlight skill of Moonveil is what makes it so effective; it unleashes a magical energy beam that imposes a significant amount of damage.

One must have 18 Dexterity, 12 Strength, and 23 Intelligence if he wants to use the Moonveil Katana.

With the right skills, this Katana weapon can devastating damage, and it is not a much hard and challenging task to get this. If you have the right approach and gameplay mindset, you can find and grab this sword by spending a little time and effort. Towards the right of the map, you will have to go to the Caelid, a dark red area located on the Limbgrave’s east. On reaching Caelid, proceed to the Gael Tunnel (a narrow cave close to the border). In this tunnel, you will encounter some enemies before facing the boss. But firstly, you should need to find this small cave.

You can get there by heading south from the Rotview Balcony Site of Grace and then across some rocks. Continue on your journey, and you’ll come across stone chests filled with golden runes of varying worth. If you keep going down the rocks to the south, you will reach the top of the camp, where you will also find two warriors. It is your choice to fight with them or avoid getting to the Gael Tunnel by locating its entry point in the hills. However, it would be best if you first made your way to the tunnel discharge to quickly depart once you have entered.

Although there are many foes in this cave, you can easily evade them and move over without facing off the boss for now. You need to exit through the gate on the western end of the boss’ fog wall, which you can access by moving west. In addition, you should take the back entrance to the Site of Grace.

The Magma Wyrm is the final boss which you will have to encounter. He is not particularly challenging out of all the Elden Ring bosses, but you may find him a real hassle to deal with. That is a large, lava-covered creature situated in a small, cramped area, making movement difficult. Ensure to rely on fire-resistant items and stay near his feet if necessary. Only a few attempts should be all needed for you to overcome this boss.
