The Syan's Halberd is unique among halberds in that it features movesets from the Spear class, and also prioritize those movesets. Because of that, instead of the slashing and sweeping animations of weak attacks typical from halberds, this weapon performs thrusting attacks instead, just like a spear. And like a spear, you can perform these attacks while raising your shield. Also, this weapon's two-handed strong attack is similar to that of the Silverblack Spear's two-handed strong attack, which is a stationary 180-degree sweep, instead of the usual dual spin moveset from halberds.
This then puts the Syan's Halberd in a peculiar position: while featuring movesets from the Spear class, its similar attacks are slightly slower, but deal more damage. And while this weapon's base damage is below average, it offers the highest scaling in Dexterity out of all the halberds. All these features combined makes the Syan's Halberd one of the most versatile DEX-based weapons in the game.
