Roaring Halberd is a weapon in Dark Souls 2

Hints & Tips:

  • Same moveset as Halberd, but with dark damage instead.
  • Also has longer reach than default Halberd due to its size.
  • Infuse with Darknight Stone  to have it be Dark dedicated.
  • Received huge buff in regulation 1.08. Physical rose to 310+63 and dark to 210+68.
  • Dark Roaring Halberd buffed with Dark Weapon can inflict an insanely high amount of damage provided if you have the stat for its scaling.
  • At Dex: 40 and Int+Faith:30-30 a Dark Roaring Halberd has ATT: 272+38 and Dark: 277+109 which is an AR: 696.
  • Add the Dark Clutch ring and Ring of Blades+1 you're looking at AR: 760.
  • With above set up, with Dark Weapon buff applied, you can hit for 917 if landing with the tip of the weapon. If too close you will hit for around 369. (Tested on the dogs out side McDuffs workshop.)

      this weapon is bad, the damage CAN BE great but getting it to hit with the tip of the weapon every time is a complete pain, and when you don't hit with the tip its damage is mediocre at best.

        This **** is years 'n years out of date. This page needs updated badly. Different requirements to wield, completely different stats, etc.

          This page is horribly outdated and innacurate. It has different requirements to wield, the AR is radically different, it has innate dark damage, etc.

            I had not planned on using this weapon because of the ridiculous weight compared to other halberds, but holy crap does it do serious damage, especially infused with dark and buffed with dark. Considering I was doing a Hexer build, I had no choice. This thing seems to do a lot of damage even to enemies with considerable resistance to dark damage. Reminds me of the chaos gargoyle halberd in Dark Souls 1 in that respect. And it hits fast too. I guess that's how they justified making it so heavy. Thanks to the posts on this page and on Reddit.

              I'm about to play this for the first time and heard it was a good choice weapon for people that like elemental builds. In DS3 (please try not to judge too harshly) was the lothric knight sword because it got great CCAA scaling, insane range, and fast dps. It just made the most sense for PvE. I guess I'm kinda looking for something like that but this looks really strong. I only care about PvE. Would you recommend this as a good PvE weapon for a first time player that favors dex, intel and faith?

                This thing is a monster on a melee hexed build. 30/30 FTh and int, minimum stats to wield, dark infused and you can easily hit 6-700 AR without any buffs.

                  Weapons that stab over shields are hard to use because you still get the shield stab during the "enemy bounced off my shield" animation, making it impossible to get a proper counterhit. Really screws up what would otherwise be a great hexing weapon.

                    on a good hex build this halberd is a monster, the only downfall is the durability. I notice I have to repair it way more often than my other weapons. Probably cos it's made of bones.
