Spear
Spear

In-Game Description

Standard spear used commonly by soldiers.
Long reach, and can be used with shield up.
Effective against hard exteriors, and can hit
for high damage at the right moment of an
enemy's swing. But the hit radius is small,
and it is easily blocked by shields.

Notes

  • Spears are precision long-range weapons that are for thrusting attacks.
  • They allow you to attack while holding a shield up to guard, giving you simultaneous offense and defense.
  • Spears do not do well against a shield. They glance off the shield and do not stagger shielded enemies as easily as other weapon attack types.
  • Acquiring the Lightning Spear from Sen's Fortress is a viable option when trying to do the Knight's Honor achievement/trophy. You can grab the spear, downgrade it to a Spear +10, then craft the weapon you need.

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: The damage bonus for backstabs and ripostes
Durability: The durability 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 your Equip Burden will reduce the speed of your rolls, while going over 100% will reduce your regular speed to walking and attempts to roll or backstep will leave you momentarily stunned.
StatsNeeded: 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 your 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 Great Axe (Requires 26 Strength) properly if the weapon is held with both hands.
(18 x 1.5 = 27)

StatBonuses: The Stat Bonuses rating indicates the level of bonus damage you do with the weapon, based on the associated Stat. This rating can be S, A, B, C, D, or E (in order from most to least bonus for the associated skill).
FramptSouls: This is the amount of souls you will receive if you feed the item to Kingseeker Frampt
