    Best Spear

    Post by RandelOolacile on Mon Jul 16, 2012 4:09 am

    Hello, everyone!

    I'm wanting to try using a spear and am curious about which is considered to be top tier! I've used the winged spear before and really like its damage output; I took it to fire +10. Anyway, so what do you guys think?

    Never really used spears myself, but looking at the different spears using the wiki, I'd say you've pretty much got as much damage as you're going to get with that +10 fire winged spear.

    The only way I'd think you could increase that output is by, of course, applying buffs and/or stat scaling with a spear.

    A different way of looking at it, is looking at the types of attacks each spear is capable of. Looking at the wiki, I found that many of the spears have attacks that replace the standard spear's own set. I'd suggest researching and trying out some of the spears, to see not only individual damage capability, but your own personal move preference.

    Demon spear is longest but low damage. DSS has high requirements but decent damage and (imo) a great moveset apart from the r2s. Winged spear is decent, long with good damage. The pike is anothre favourite for its moveset. Apart from those none are used as these combine the best of lenght and damage.

    Awesome, guys, thanks! Based on moveset I was wanting to go with partizan cause of the r2 horizontals, but I like the higher damage from winged. I keep my builds at fifty so stat scaling doesn't benefit me too much, more than likely going to stay elemental! Thanks again! =D

    Actually, the pike has the longest range out of any melee weapon in the game, and B scaling with dex.

    Roan has a list showing the demon spear as longest, with DSS as second longest.

    If you're building for a spear I'd say dss, if the spear is a backup go demons.

    another thing. Chaos > fire. if you are intending to PvP. all that can be said about the various options has been. except that demons spear is far easier to meet reqs for than DSS

    Game desc says it's the longest, and fighting against DS and DSS users it seems longer, but I haven't done any exact testing.

    Its hard to tell length in pvp with spears due to lag.

    My favourite has to be partizan since it has the best move set imo and kicks pass with my warrior build.

    Yeah, rant. I was messing with the partizan on my mule and really liked the moveset. I really do think that those r2's are extremely important for spear weapons cause of their limited hitbox! Thanks, everyone I think I've found my spear build!

    We had this exact topic like a week ago, my favorites are winged spear and partazin. I prefer the winged over the partazin though.
