Halberd
Halberd

In-Game Description

Long-hilted weapon mixing spear and axe is
difficult to handle, requiring both strength
and dexterity. The Halberd has two elementary
attacks: spear-like thrusting and large
sweeping swings. However, one false swing
and the wielder is left wide open.

Availability

Treasure from a corpse in Undead Parish. The corpse is near the gate lever in front of the church

A Crystal Halberd is dropped by a Mimic in Anor Londo. Turn left when exiting the first bonfire and through the archway. The chest on the right, behind the Sentinel, is the Mimic

General Information

Like all Halberds, if an attack doesn't connect with an enemy, the user will stumble and seem to not be able to handle the weight. If the hit connects, the stumble animation does not come into play and the user moves as normal.

Using the running attack of the halberd while running in water will result in the start of the attack getting cancelled and the active frames of the attack will be preformed immediately. This means that the running attack of the halberd has no start up lag while in water. The startup of the halberd running attack is also not displayed for other players online, leading to incorrect lineup of animation, hit and position.

Key

Damage:

The Damage stat dictates how much damage the weapon does. The Damage stats for a weapon are W / X / Y / Z:

  • W is Physical Damage
  • X is Magical Damage
  • Y is Fire Damage
  • Z is Lightning Damage

Each weapon has one or more physical damage types:

  • Normal
  • Striking
  • Slashing
  • Thrusting

Certain enemies are weak or strong against different types of damage types.

Critical: One of the multipliers (in percent) for the bonus damage on criticals, such as backstabs and ripostes.
Durability: The health of the weapon. The effectiveness of the weapon will severely deteriorate when the durability falls below 30%.
Weight: The weight of the weapon. Note that carrying over 50% of a character's Equip Burden will reduce the speed of their rolls, while going over 100% will reduce their regular speed to walking and attempts to roll or backstep will leave them momentarily stunned.
Stats Needed:

The Stats Needed determines how high various Stats must be in order to wield the weapon effectively. The Requirement stats for a weapon are W / X / Y / Z:

  • W is the Strength required
  • X is the Dexterity required
  • Y is the Intelligence required
  • Z is the Faith required

Wielding a weapon without the required Strength and/or Dexterity will incur a penalty to the Physical damage of the weapon, while lower-than-required Magic and/or Faith will reduce the Magic damage of the weapon.

Also keep in mind that a character gains a 50% bonus to Strength by wielding a weapon with both hands, thus reducing the actual Strength required.
For example, a character with 18 Strength can wield a Large Club (Requires 26 Strength) properly if the weapon is held with both hands.
(18 x 1.5 = 27)

Damage Reduction %:

The Damage Reduction stat dictates the percentage of damage reduced while blocking. The Damage Reduction stats for a weapon are W / X / Y / Z:

  • W is the Physical Damage Reduction
  • X is the Magical Damage Reduction
  • Y is the Fire Damage Reduction
  • Z is the Lightning Damage Reduction
Stability: The stability of the weapon. The higher this value, the less stamina is consumed when blocking attacks.
Frampt Souls: This is the amount of souls players will receive if they feed the item to Kingseeker Frampt.
