Crystal Soul Spear
Short to Long Range
"Soul spear sharpened through crystallization.
Pierces enemies, causing heavy damage.
Superior to the most finely sharpened weapons.
When wielded precisely, it can take down several enemies at once."
- Shoots a projectile spell that deals magic damage. Can pierce through multiple enemies. An upgrade to Soul Spear. It is the highest damaging single projectile-type sorcery in game. Casting speed is roughly same as Great Heavy Soul Arrow. Has a chance to pierce through shields with 100% Magic damage reduction especially Magic Shield under Magic infusion.
- Multiple scrolls can be obtained by using Bonfire Ascetic on the The Duke's Dear Freja.
- At 53 int and with Staff of Wisdom +4 it only deals 25% more damage than the normal Soul Spear but requires twice the attunement slots.
- As of Calibration 1.10, this spell requires two attunement slots, and it's casting time has been increased. A mistranslation of the patch caused confusion about reduced damage. The correct translation notes the reduction was only to poise damage. With 99 INT and a Magic Staff of Wisdom +5, Crystal Soul Spear does the exact same 1011 damage to Giant Lord that it did before the patch.
