    What spear/polearm would you say is the best?

    Post by Dubscythe on Thu May 17, 2012 10:28 am

    I'm working on my 40/40 build right now and I was originally going to use the Halberd as my secondary weapon but feel as though its moveset is very sluggish and underwhelming. I was wondering if you guys had any favorites when it came to spears and polearms, as I could use some opinions for a new secondary.

    haha I thought you'd say that eventually silly It's a rather linear R1 attack whilst being slow too which limits how good it can be.

    If you go on mugenmonkey, and do drop down and use the spear section and +15 will tell you which is most powerful, for future reference...

    Looks like Pike is the most powerful at 416, but the Winged spear is a close second with 405 pure damage, however the demon spear +5 actually has 487 damage, though this is split not pure damage. Your choice now happy

    Well the best I would be able to get is +14, do NOT feel like farming Darkwraiths.

    What about the Dragonslayer Spear?

    I still like the lucerene more, used it on a faith build, did the work very well.

    It's not that great if you don't use faith scaling on it.. You could try but even on my build that had 40 dex and 40 faith it's power wasn't awe-inspiring, but it's redeeming factor is it's length, which is crazy

    Kaminari, I've never used lucerne, and I'm someone who never uses polarms, their R1 moveset is both ugly and too linear for how slow it is.

    Gargoyle Halberd and in your case the scythe. Wonderful moveset for catching people.

    I mostly use the strong attack, R2, wich on my faithbuild pretty much Onehitted everything happy

    Yeah, the strong attack i've come up against a few times, it's one of those attacks which lag amplifies how dangerous it is, kinda like rapiers or spells.

    I like the Silver Knight Spear. But that's just preference. I don't use spears that often.

    I think it's the one weapon that does divine damage but has no faith requirement.

    I know they're really annoying to fight. I can't parry those spears at the range their attacks come in from. Also, even rolling out of the way of their thrusts is complicated.

    For a 40/40 build the best spear is the Demon's Spear. DSS has high physical AR too so it could work, just have to test both damage numbers. I think the Giant's Halberd is great for a 40/40 build, I haven't tested it but it could work.

    I'm thinking of both the Demon Spear and a scythe. Which scythe would be best, Great or Lifehunt?

    Lifehunt's awesome, just make sure you take the necessary precautions. You pretty much would have to devote a ring slot to the Bloodbite Ring.

    pike and reg scythe get a B in dex and i think a D in str so those are really good choices.

    Dragonslayer spear wears out real quick. Lightning Spear you get from Sens does pretty good damage & lasts longer before you have to repair it. Lifehunt Scythe is awesome against Demon Firesage & his bro' in the Undead Asylum second time around but have red moss handy.
