Lightning Spear


In-Game Description

A miracle that launches a spear of lightning.
Said to be the legacy of an ancient clan
whose leader was revered as the God of Sun.

The name of the clan has been lost to time,
but the gross incandescence of our magnificent
father shall never wane.


A conjured throwing spear that does Lightning damage.

Deals approximately 2.0x the Attack Rating of your weapon.

Does 20% of the damage the enemy would take as AOE (area of effect) damage.
Example: If you hit a wall beside an enemy with a Spear, the enemy will take 20% of the damage they would normally take if they had been hit directly.

When you hit an enemy directly, they also get hit with the AOE (unless they die from the direct hit), therefore they take 120% damage.

If a spear hits either the water or an enemy in water, a short range AoE burst deals extra damage to any enemy in the water close to the point of impact.


  • One sold by Licia of Lindeldt for 6,000 souls (unlimited after lighting the first bonfire in Drangleic Castle).
  • Earthen Peak. Travel to the second bonfire (Central Earthen Peak) and walk up the stairs directly to your left as you exit the bonfire room, then a right into the doorway at the top of the stairs. Travel down the walkway until you reach the elevator activated by a pull lever. Do not pull the lever, and drop down onto the elevator. Climb the ladder to your left and travel down the pathway at the top of the ladder. The pathway ends with a Grave Warden at a T intersection. Turn right at the end of the path. There will be a Desert Sorceress across a broken walkway that you can jump across to reach a chest. Do not jump across, instead turn right and drop down onto a ledge with a door on the wall. Walk forward and drop down onto the next platform which also has a door on the wall. Go through this doorway and there will be a chest containing Lightning Spear.

  • For best results regarding damage, infuse the chime you are using with Lightning. This will increase damage and have only positive effects on any lightning based attack.
  • An error in the current patch (1.5?) caused the damaged to be nerfed rather buffed as intended.
