The Gargoyle Bident is a spear in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

A two-pronged spear that imitates a weapon mentioned in an ancient text.
Gargoyles are said to guard castles and forts from ill fortune, and they have appeared in many forms in all the great lands throughout history.
Some of them are so meticulously crafted that they look as if they might come to life.


Due to its high strength scaling, this weapon has one of the highest attack rating of spears. This may appeal to players using Strength oriented builds that want a weapon which deals heavy thrust damage, but don't want the slow attack speed or weight of a Lance.
