    Great video, as always. For me, I have never underestimated spears. In fact, I find them to be one of, if not the best class of weapons in the game. A spear allows you to do consistent damage at long range, and avoid all damage to yourself. They're nearly game-breaking when used by a competent player, because they are just so hard to get in any hits against. You either end up in a slug-fest with them, or you die. Sorcery/Pyromancy can help stop a spear user, but it still requires a ton of finesse and luck. To me, it seems that they are unbeatable in many situations.

    the greatest weapon against a spear user is a high poise/vit build with a elemental shotel

    the nightmare of every spear turtle

    See, I'm not talking about the turtles though. I'm talking about the ones that simply evade everything you do, whether through a roll, running, or even a backstep. The ones that 2 hand the spear and make it impossible to hit them, by basically running away while attacking.

    I like the SKS for its length but it gets outclassed in damage by the Winged spear, the Pike, etc. at high dex. It's a great looking weapon though, and I like spears in general so I've ended up using it for hunting quite a bit.

    Well, I don't know because I didn't turtle in over 50 minutes of footage.

    Very nice video, and a favorite weapon of mine in the forest. And you technically turtled a few times, but only in the loosest sense, just doing a few shield pokes mainly against DMB users I assume to help off put the DMB damage. I enjoyed watching the fights, very nice use of the weapon Mart. If only the SK spear could be buffed, I'd love to use it with a charcoal resin haha.

    Tolvo, I'm sure a man as educated as yourself would be familiar with the resin glitch silly At least you'd have the fire for appearance sake! silly

    Very nice video Martyr. I use spears quite a lot, but I tend to use them with my Spartan build that basically has no armour whilst never turtling purely just to avoid people whining. The SKS is one of my favourite weapons in the game, appearance wise as well happy That fool with the Hornet-Zwei is an all too common sight in the Burg now!

    I actually just got my hands on a Sliver Knight Spear before I stopped playing Dark Souls for Batman. Im going to swap it for my Dark Knight Halberd and try it out. I think that spear with my mage build with TWOP added will make a good kill machine.
