The Stone Soldier Spear is a spear in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

Spear of the castle stone soldiers.
Sir Velstadt could always be found at the King's side, and followed him upon his exit. The knights in his service waited patiently for his return, until they turned to stone.

Availability Edit

A common drop from the Stone Soldiers in Drangleic Castle.


The Stone Soldier Spear performs much like the Pike. The reach is the same, but the Stone Soldier Spear uses the standard Spear moveset, while the Pike uses a combination of Lance and Spear moves. It's also slightly lighter than the Pike.

Compared to the Winged Spear, which has the same moveset, it deals a bit less damage with high Dexterity, and is heavier. However, its range is undeniably useful despite the damage loss. It also performs better if the player has high Strength, although the Gargoyle Bident will out-damage it at that point.

It's a very average Spear when it comes to damage, even though it has above average scaling in both Dexterity and Strength. Due to its scaling, it slightly surpasses the Pike's damage if the player's stats are even. It has a greater performance on Dexterity focused characters despite the relatively high Strength scaling, due to the Pike and Gargoyle Bident's better scaling.
