Guide[ | ]

Spears are powerful mid-range weapons that reward good positioning. Their main feature is their ability to deal Critical Hits when hitting with the tip of the Spear : with a bit of practice and skill, it is possible to land Critical Hits very often, which makes Spears a lot more powerful than their average base damage and (relatively unexciting) move multipliers would suggest. It also allows them to benefit greatly from Critical Damage-enhancing Relics and effects. In addition, their Combo Finisher interrupts the target.

However, they are relatively weak against enemy groups : even though their Charged Attack hits everything in the surrounding area, it has a high stamina cost and low damage multipliers, which makes it relatively situational. More crucially, Spears really drop in effectiveness when the Player can't land Critical Hits : when they get too close to the enemy and don't have time to reposition, for example.
