Yorgh's Spear is a weapon in Dark Souls 2.

 

Spear wielded by Sir Yorgh during his invasion of the Sanctum city.

After his defeat of the Sunken King, Sir Yorgh pierced Sinh, the sleeping dragon, with this spear to claim its blood.

But Sinh immediately awoke, spewing a poisonous fog that blanketed the city in death, and Sir Yorgh disappeared in to the Eternal Sanctum.

Hints and Tips:

  • Upgrades with Petrified Dragon Bone to +5
  • Resistances change considerably: magic, lightning, fire and dark resistance are reduced by 70, whilst poison is increased by 200. Bleed, petrify and curse are increased by 70
  • Can be powerstanced with Piercing Swords, Spear, Helix Halberd and Lance type weapons, but not Santier's Spear.
  • Although you cannot power stance this weapon with Santier's Spear, the huge variety of movesets of both can catch people off guard while wielded together, while Santier's Spear moveset will make it even more agile. equip both Illusory Rings if you decided to go for dual wielding Yorgh's Spear and Santier's Spear to make it even more unpredictable.
  • A useful combo for Santier + Yorgh moveset is Santiner rolling 1H L1 + Yorgh 1H R1/R2 for strafing and Santier L1 + Yorgh R1 for slightly faster Yorgh poking.
  • This weapon is devastating in PvE. With 40 DEX/40 STR and a Yorgh's Spear+5 you may deal up to 1500 damage with (relatively) quick two-handed R1-R1 combo (tested on dragons in Dragon Aerie).
  • Seems to respond extremely well to infusion; when infused with Magic, Fire, Lightning, or dark, the elemental damage alone is almost as much as the physical was before infusing (281 at +5 vs 300). This can prove extremely useful as a single 2h R1 can do well over 900 damage to other players with Old Leo ring, +5 magic infusion, and Great Magic Weapon, and result in a near instant victory with its deadly combo potential.

Moveset:

  • Although this is a spear, its moveset is a combination of different weapons moveset.
  • One-handed:
  • R1 - lance R1 attack (or spear R1 attack if you did a thrust with a secondary thrusting weapon L1 attack)
  • First R2 - spear R2 (like the Silverblack Spear).
  • Second R2 - overhead smash (Thorned Greatsword 1H R2, but this one does not shoot lightning).
  • Running attack - overhead smash
  • Rolling attack - lance rolling attack
  • Two-handed:
  • First R1 - R1 lance attack.
  • Second R1 - twinblade-like attack.
  • First R2 - halberd spin (only 2-spins, not the spin to win).
  • Second R2 - second two-handed R1 twinblade attack.
  • Running attack - lance running attack.
  • Backstep attack - lance running attack
  • Rolling attack - curved sword rolling attack
  • Powerstanced:
  • L1: spear L1
  • L2: spear L2

        Hands down the best Spear of the entire Series
        so much variety in the moveset! and pretty balanced too, with it's own pros and cons.
        if there's something that Dark Souls 2 did great, it was the unique moveset of a good number of weapons.

          If someone with the ability to edit sees this, the link to thrusting swords doesn't work because it links to a nonexistent page called "Thrusting Sword" with no "s" at the end.

            One of the most fun weapons to invade with along with Scythe of Want, back in 2014 pretty much everyone in PVE NG+ cycles used Greatsword and a big shield of some kind with the rusted armour, or all the spellcasting speed increasing gear and a big shield, and NOTHING ELSE, i have over 1000 hours of experience invading in this game, so when i say this weapon and Scythe of Want destroy bad players, i heckin mean it :P this **** is fuuuuuuuuuun.

              If you put any sort of fire damage on it, it makes an explosion sound (2 handed R1, tested on Duke's Dear Freja. I put charcoal pine resin on my yorgh's spear +5)

                This thing is almost my favorite weapon, if it was a bit faster, it would be my favorite, the insane stamina loss is a bit of a problem too...

                • Anonymous

                  I want to make a build with this Spear. Spears are normally not my thing but Lances opened my eyes for this class too. Plus Yorgh's is pretty much a Lance so... What rings would be the best? I'm thinking about Blades +2 and Old Leo (Even if I'm sure the Two-handed R1 second attack does not benefit from that) . I also almost always use Chloranthy +2 and Steel Protection +2. Oh and the engraved Gauntlets for that nice 15% Crit chance. Is this a good setup or should I switch something?

                    Why are people asking "do you have a spare one" are these people to bad to defeat Sinh or just trying to get one to twink with it? I'm normally not using this but if the former is the case, git gud! If the latter is what you're planning... Bro... Stop being a little btch.

                      Great 2hr1 moveset. Close the distance with the first stab, then keep them from hitting back with a twinblade move. Easy wins for pve or pvp

                        I was a DS noob when SotFS came out. Someone invaded me in Heide's Tower of Flame and just dodged my defenses until I quit. Then they just dropped Yorgh's +5, praised the sun, and suicided. thanks sunbro

                          Playing on PC and im trying to powerstance with yorghs and a reg spear and it isnt working, anyone else haveing this problem

                          • Anonymous

                            everytime i equip yorgh's spear i get this little golden sword and shield symbol, anyone knows what that does

                            • I decided to try this out on NG+ in Frozen Eleum Loyce and wrecked the ice bastards and only had it at +4. I did coat it with dark weapon and dark resin as I progressed, but I got through to the Priestess Eye and the third bonfire without dying, something I never managed on my first play through, where I died over and over again.
