"A trident wielded by an old sorcerer. The tip is sharpened so smoothly that it suggests a degree of madness.
Use strong attack to perform a power channeling dance, the madness of which boosts the morale of nearby allies.

Acquired From

Dyna and Tillo's crow nest by giving them a Petrified Something (Common), Smooth & Silky Stone (Rare) or Small Smooth & Silky Stone (Very Rare).

Hints and Tips:
Two-Handed Strong Attack's boost:

  • Seems to do a 25% damage boost (tested with the Trident)
  • Seems to do a 5% damage boost to lightning miracles (tested with Great Lightning Spear and Sunlight Spear)
  • Does affect Sorceries and Hexes
  • Affects all nearby allies
  • Uses 10 durability
  • The boost lasts about 15 seconds
  • Shows up as a faint orange sparkle/glow on affected players
  • Only triggers near the end of the dance
  • You can cancel the dance in the early frames with a roll, but no boost will occur even though you lose durability.


One-Handed Strong Attack:

  • The tip of the trident spins while hitting an opponent, hitting them three times (effectively hitting them for three times the damage)
  • Works well with poison and bleed, especially if paired with Sanctum Soldier Gauntlets + Crest of the Rat or Shadow Gauntlets + Crest of Blood depending on the auxiliary infusion you picked.
  • Be warned that this attack is quite susceptible to being parried, and can potentially be parried and hit the opponent once or twice at the same time (I once killed a player and got parried by him in the same single attack. He fell over dead as I sat motionless on the ground)
  • Has remarkably good directional control and can be used to hit opponents who roll to your side.


Rolling Attacks:

  • Both the one-handed and two-handed rolling attacks will also cause the head to spin and hit the target three times.
  • The one-handed rolling attack deals less damage and costs less stamina (minus the roll cost) than the one-handed R2.
  • Think of the one-handed rolling attack as the lighter longer-ranged version of the one-handed R2.
  • Works well with poison and bleed.


PvP

  • The two-handed buff will affect friendly mobs in the Grave of Saints and in the Door of Pharos if you are in the Rat King Covenant.
  • Infusing this weapon with poison and using the one-handed R2 stacks poison extremely effectively- especially so when combined with the Rat Covenant Ring.
  • Pairing this weapon with the Stone Ring is highly recommended, as it will eat through an opponent's stamina very quickly if they are blocking with a shield.
  • Pairing this weapon with the Bracing Knuckle Ring is recommended because it has very low durability, and using the one-handed R2 attack will deplete durability quickly.
  • Using the buff dance is very risky and only gives a small, temporary damage increase while decreasing the weapon's durability. Only use the dance if you are in a place where it will not get interrupted, and in a place where allies will receive benefit.
  • This weapon might be more effective if used as a poker in the left hand; using the one-handed R2 with its long range has little risk of counter-attack- give it a try! (Thanks for the tip. This strategy worked well to help me get Bleed build-up on opponents, especially when the weapon in my right hand also caused bleeding.)
  • While not technically beneficial, the two-handed R2 makes for a very satisfying goofy victory taunt, especially when combined with silly armour.
