The Spear is a spear in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

A standard spear.
Spears allow one to attack a foe from a distance, and while holding up a shield.
Thrusting attacks are effective even against opponents with strong defense, but they have a narrow point of contact and won't effectively break through a shielded defense.

Availability Edit

May be purchased from Blacksmith Lenigrast for 1,400 souls.

Characteristics Edit

Though most players typically favor its winged counterpart, the Spear itself is actually a viable weapon in the hands of the capable. Like most other thrusting weapons, players can attack enemies with this spear from behind their shield, allowing for a safer approach in narrow spaces. Players should be cautious on attacking in this fashion for prolonged conflicts, as more stamina is consumed than usual with each attack (as well as the reduced stamina regeneration when one is blocking), which could make one more prone to having their guard broken.

Unusual for a weapon of this class, it does not only thrust damage, but strike damage with its first strong attack (1-handed and 2-handed), making it a very versatile spear. This is especially useful in the earlier parts of the game, as most enemies, especially heavily-armored ones, are vulnerable to strike damage.

However, the main drawback of the Spear is its incredibly-fast degradation in combat, especially if one is fighting armored foes, making it paramount for one to watch the durability of the weapon to ensure it does not break prior to reaching a bonfire. Having repair powder, or other means of repairing equipment or preserving durability, can help mitigate this.
