    Best off-hand spear?

    Post by Dusk Soul on Sun Jun 09, 2013 2:56 am

    The title pretty much says everything; but to be more specific the build has 16 Stt, 45 Dex and up to 5.2 units of weight free (I want to fast roll).

    it will also be paired with curved swords and pyromancy.

    Demon's Spear.

    Almost always the best off-hand spear, no matter what your stats are.

    At 45 dex the SKS would be a fine choice, as would the Demon's Spear. The SKS will probably do more damage on hits, but the Demon's gives you the ability to chip really well, which is something your MH weapon might not be able to do.

    I prefer the Sliver Knight, but I would say that overall the Demon's Spear is better with longer range and better chip with lightning power. Plus Sliver Knight is too heavy so there's that haha.

    An estoc has similar reach and can parry. Spears in the offhand are bleh IMO.

    Estoc has nowhere near the reach of most spears besides the plain Spear or maybe the Four-Pronged Plow. It also doesn't have chip damage like the Demon's Spear unless you put it on an elemental path, which is the only reason many people even use a Spear off-hand.

    Also, guarding is much better than the Estoc's parry, since the chance of landing it is close to none unless you've had constant practice with it.

    Chip damage is not a problem since I'm using a Quelaag's furysword on my main hand; but I tried the Demon's Spear today against some random invaders and it workes really nice, plus it looks awesome and kind of matches the furysword.

    Demon's Spear is amazing with Furysword because it basically makes your opponent's shield useless. Furysword chips away up close, Demon's Spear chips it away from afar. A beautiful combination. They even look nice paired together.

    You haven't seen beautiful until you pair an Estoc with a BSS, gold and silver looks so elegant.

    I used to host in the Forest with that combination.

    Beautiful.

    I would toggle-escape out of everything but if I saw someone using a Greatsword I swapped Leo to Wolf.

    Boy, that's too bad. If you used a SKS in the off hand with that dexterity and a Leo Ring, you'd have something to fear. Put a Rapier or Dagger in your right hand, and you'd have a great setup.

    You can also put SMS on an off hand spear and take at least 1 hit from any damage source pretty much. SMS doesn't reduce stamina drain from blocking that well when used on weapons.

    You would also not deal magic damage on the SKS just because you had SMS active. SMS deals no damage on any off hand weapon/shield....
    ...makes people think it does though...or that you're a hacker.

    I had a guy tell me I used DMB on my left hand once, it was pretty funny.
