Misc. Changes

Dark Moon changes a lot of tiny things that don't need a whole section dedicated to them. All of those are detailed here.

Tutorials and Rumours

Throughout Dark Moon you'll find and be given tutorial and rumour items which you can examine to learn about mechanics or features the mod introduces.

Training Dummies

You might notice a few enemies standing idle down in the basement of Roundtable Hold. These are meant to be used as training dummies to test your damage. Credit to Clevererraptor6 for his version of the mod that inspired this.

Merchant Bell Bearings

The various Nomadic Merchants will now give you their Bell Bearings without having to kill them for it. This was a feature that thefifthmatt's Randomizer had that I loved so I ported it here.


Torrent has a couple minor changes in Dark Moon.

  • His movement speed has been increased by roughly 40%.
  • He can now be ridden while fighting Elden Beast a change so obvious it's crazy it's not this way in Vanilla.

Certain vanilla weapons have new scaling.

  • Frozen Needle added INT
  • Rogier’s Rapier added INT
  • Icerind Hatchet added INT
  • Watchdog’s Staff added INT
