Where to Find the Moonveil Katana in Elden Ring?

With the right skills, this Katana weapon can do devastating damage, and obtaining this powerful weapon is not an impossible feat. If you have the right approach and gameplay mindset, you can find Elden Ring’s Moonveil Katana 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. So, be prepared and make sure to have the right weapons in your hands.

To reach this small cave, embark on a journey south from the Rotview Balcony Site of Grace, traversing across rocky terrain to uncover a series of stone chests adorned with golden runes. 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’s your choice to fight with them or avoid this conflict to directly get to the Gael Tunnel by locating its entry point in the hills. Be sure to make your way to the tunnel discharge for a speedy escape once you’ve entered.

Exploring the cave’s perilous depths guarantees a run-in with a number of dangerous foes. But have no fear; you can easily evade them and move over without facing off the boss at the moment. 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’s 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 needed for you to overcome this boss and collect your desired reward.
