Great Spears are a type of Weapon in Elden Ring. Using Great Spears allow players to deliver devastating blows from remarkable distances at the expense of attack speed and weight, as Great Spears are exceptionally heavy. These Weapons are also decent on horseback when compared to other melee Weapons, because of their extraordinarily long reach.

Out of all Great Spears, only the Lance can be modified with many different Ashes of War, allowing you to change their Skills and Damage Type. The rest have fixed Skills that cannot be changed.

      What kinda weapons do you guys want from up coming DLCs? I want an actual infusable spear, Lance looks like trash. It looks dumb when you get off torrent but it doesn't even function like a Lance while on torrent either, you swing it around, normal spears function more like a Lance than actual lance. I want a regular looking spear that happens to be big, an infusable Treespear basically.

      • Anonymous

        The lance looks dumb as f**k the second you get off Torrent. Every player I've seen using it regardless of armour set looks like a clown running around with that thing.

        • Anonymous

          I really want a regular war spear, Lance is ugly and treespear is stuck to a bad aow and I dont want madness

          • Anonymous

            Hi guys, Note: You use less stamina per hit with a (Great) Spear, while holding the shield up. I was able to do one more hit with the pike at 40END and also with the lance. I have yet to test whether it affects the damage.

            • Anonymous

              From, let us get 2 serpent hunters without a glitch! It’s the best great spear visually, besides maybe mohgs!

              • Anonymous

                It’s really annoying how the only infusable great spear looks super scuffed with pretty much any ash of war.

                • Anonymous

                  what a bizarrely incomplete category. the single "generic" version doesn't even resemble the weapon type, barely fits into the game.

                    Great Spears pros and cons

                    Pros:
                    Has insane tracking
                    Long reach
                    Reasonable damage
                    Heavy poise damage

                    Cons:
                    Slightly heavy
                    Slow

                    • Anonymous

                      if there's DLCs comin' down the line, then i hope we get one more infusable Great Spear (that actually looks like a spear)
                      i dunno, is kinda of a waste that the only greatspear that is infusable is the Lance, the one that doesn't have a sweeping r2 or a special one like the Treespear.

                      • Anonymous

                        Is there a way to parry the running heavy attack before the heavy thrust at the end of the animation? The final thrust is parryable but I just cannot get a parry on the prior "running hits".

                        • Anonymous

                          Are great spears any good in PvP. Been meaning to switch from colossal swords to great spears since I like the safe play of spears because of their range.

                          • Anonymous

                            I just wish I could helicopter spin the treespear, or maybe the serpent hunter. also they should really at least give it a proper storm ruler weapon art, even if they obviously can't do as high a damage or hitbox version for the sake of not breaking the game

                            • Anonymous

                              I fell in love the long spear combat in Dynasty Warriors games when I was young and loved being able to pierce at medium range or sweep with its double edged blade. I use a spears in any game that allow for this kind of combat. So glad the Greatspears can do this but so sad you cant add spinning blade, blade dance, repeating thrust etc to one

                              Yes you can add one to the lance, but not at all what I'm looking for aesthetically.

                                Treespear could have been easily one of the best weapons in the game if they allowed it be infused and have custom weapon art. I mean it literally uses a generic WA and it upgrades with normal smithing stones. WHY CANT IT BE INFUSED

                                • Anonymous

                                  Whats with the random choices From made with what can and can't be infused? The treespear, great club, and serpentbone katana have generic weapon arts and are upgraded with basic smithing stones but their weapon arts can't be changed despite that.

                                  • Anonymous

                                    Treespear is absolutely BEAST. can be acquired relatively early. Will stagger low poise enemies with basic R1. Great fully charged R2. Will stagger the **** outta bosses.

                                    • Anonymous

                                      On a faith build (50fth) Treespear buffed with Vyke's Dragonbolt gets around 820 AR (cast with a maxed out gravel stone seal). Granted, the damage is split, but with its unique R2s and the already amazing great spear moveset, it's worth trying.

                                      Other great spears are likely better, but I've been having fun with this one.

                                      • Anonymous

                                        In my opinion, the three best Great Spears are Siluria's Tree, Vyke's War Spear and Mohgwyn's Sacred Spear.

                                        They receive the highest damage on a build where you put two stats to 60 (Siluria = 816AR on STR/FTH, Vyke = 801 on DEX/FTH, Mohgwyn = 778 on STR/ARC, but buffed by about 50 points by WA)
                                        Out of those three, Mohgwyn's is barely longer than Siluria's, which is a fair bit longer than Vyke's. Siluria's builds up nothing, Vyke's gets 66 Madness build up and Mohgwyn's gets 90 Bleed buildup, however I think the Ash of War buffs that.

                                          mohg's, vyke's and the great lance are the only good ones rest are decent but nothing super impressive i'd say siluria's is good aswell but the projectile cant be free aided cause if u do try to free aim it it will just hit the ground.

                                            so we have the only spear that you can infuse, A tree,A gimmick weapon, A tree 2.0, One of the only weapon that have madness,and a "S P E A R".

                                              I wish there was a great spear other than the lance that could be infused/ash changed, just want something more spear-looking

                                                I have a really dumb question. It says some enemies/bosses are weak to "thrust damage". Is "Pierce" and "Thrust" the same thing?

                                                  I wish every great spear had the Serpent Hunter crouch attack, that would make them so much better in pvp.

                                                    Why is the lance the only great spear that can be infused? The tree spear should be a second option on the dex side to have an ash of war change, but for some reason it also can't be changed yet upgrades with regular smithing stones.

                                                          Perhaps I'm the only one who didn't know this, but the great spears have a sprint-heavy attack that functions a lot like charge forth. It can hit three times, usually breaking guard for the third hit. (I tested some other heavy thrusting swords and regular spears, but it didn't work the same. Something to watch for.)

                                                          For the great spears with good scaling but no ability to change ashes of war, this move adds some versatility.

                                                          Lock on, sprint, press heavy attack. Doesn't need a big run up.
