Soul Spear is a Sorcery in Dark Souls 2 (DKS2)Soul Spear, an advanced sorcery crafting souls into a spear that penetrates enemies, inflicting substantial damage. Although attributed to a forgotten master sorcerer, the spell's origin remains shrouded in mystery. Sorceries demand the use of a Staff or Special Weapons, requiring a certain Intelligence level for casting.


"Sorcery that fires souls shaped into a spear.
Pierces enemies, causing heavy damage.

This spells was said to have been devised by a master sorcerer, but his name is long forgotten."

Soul Spear Notes

  • Shoots a projectile that deals magic damage. Pierces through multiple enemies. Roughly the same casting speed as Great Heavy Soul Arrow yet over twice as powerful per shot, and has a slightly wider bolt and longer range. A less effective Crystal Soul Spear.
  • Can be farmed via burning Bonfire Ascetic at the second bonfire in Huntsman's Copse.

      The cast speed on this is very low and the stamina cost pretty high. To make matters worse, 2 Great Heavy Soul Arrows will do marginally more damage while casting at a much faster speed.

      Basically Soul Spear in this game is a near horizontal upgrade to casting 2 GHSA back-to-back. Much fewer uses though..

        Since getting copies of this is so easy with ascetics, you stack every attunement slot with them and gain an additional cast per slot with a +0 northern ritual. The +0 ring only takes off 20% and is well worth it for this set up. I'm still not sure if it's worth losing 2 soul spear stacks for one crystal soul spear.

        • fairly easy to farm. i used bonfire ascetic on the second bonfire, warped to the third, backtracked across the bridge (beware the enemy behind you when you cross), and i think it was 4 or 5 enemies ahead. simply drop into the hut on the left, loot the loot, rinse and repeat.

            Soul Spear CAN’T be farmed in Huntsmans Copse; it’s an iron chest so it doesn’t respawn. (SOTFS, TBC for regular)
