Go southwest from where you start Act 2 in Shadow Cursed Lands to buy and get the Drakethroat Glaive. You’ll find it challenging to navigate that deadly area if you don’t have any additional protection against the shadow course. Therefore, we advise you to head to Last Light Inn on the north first to receive Selune’s blessing or Moonlantern from Isobel. Alternatively, you can defeat Kar’niss at Ruined Battlefield. If you save Dolly Dolly Dolly, a pixie trapped in Moonlantern, you can get Pixie Blessing and never again worry about the effects of the course.

Next, head to the far southwest side of the map to find Moonrise Towers. Only if you approach Absolute worshipers in a friendly manner, you will be able to speak with everyone and check the merchants’ stock who found their shelter in the fortress. That includes Roah Moonglow, who sells Drakethroat Glaive. She will stand to the right from the main entrance of Moonrise Towers. Simply ask her to trade, and you should be able to buy Drakethroat Glaive from her.
