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. Like Spears, Great Spears allow for attacking with a shield raised, letting users block and attack at the same time. 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.

      So someone removed every button from my controller except for L3, L1, and X. Now I originally thought I wasn't going to be able to play the game anymore but fortunately the Great Spear weapon class exists to prove me wrong.
      Now I can easily kill those evil red bastards in a totally fair 3v1 and call it skill. Thanks, Elden Ring.

        Its funny watching a psgs player just standing there humping the ground when you refuse to roll so they can reaction rollcatch you

        • Anonymous

          About to get downvoted but in my opinion powerstanced greatspears are the most fun setup to use in the game. Every single move they have serves a purpose depending on the situation.

          • Anonymous

            I did it! i found out how to dodge the stupid crouch attack! (most of the time) Start running away from the dual-spear guy, and then dodge when you're about to leave the range of the spears. Most of them will try to make you panic roll, so instead force them to attack and dodge accordingly.

            • Anonymous

              I wish there was a great spear besides the lance that you could use AoW's on ... hoping we get on in the DLC

              • Anonymous

                PSGS can be very tough to fight however there are ways to beat it. For those PSGS players that tend to wave dash at you to psych you out into panic rolling instead attack them and keep up intense hyper aggression. Don’t give them a second to breathe and force them to back off. I’ve had the most success with the knights greatsword by free aiming my hits. Play very close attention to how they react to certain actions and try to mix up what you do. If they are running from you watch out for a quick pivot jump attack. You can force them to roll or jump by using the gravity stone fan and punish accordingly with either a roll catch or by backstabbing after their jump attack. In order to effectively counter PSGS you need to stay calm and keep up as much pressure as you can. If they are using BHS or quickstep delay your attacks slightly to catch them or use ashes of war that cover a wide area around you with a lingering hitbox such as flaming strike or storm stomp. Having an offhand dagger or thrusting sword can be used to get some chip damage on them over the course of the fight and can be used to quickly finish them off when they get to low health. Overall it will be a tough fight unless they aren’t very good but they can be beat and it just takes some practice.

                  The most underwhelming class out of all the heavy weapon classes for pve. Like every aspect of them feels mediocre in comparison with the other heavy classes. From its individual hit damage, dps, stance damage, moveset, etc. liek only two are above average simply because of their ashes.

                  • Anonymous

                    These got the exact opposite problem that claws have, this weapon class doesnt have enough infusable weapons, and claws have no somber weapons.

                      Out of 6 great spears only 1 is infuseable/ can have its Aow changed. A waste, such a cool weapon class...

                      • Anonymous

                        It's a big problem that most of these deal split damage as the spear talisman only boost physical AR on counter.

                          If I had a nickel for every Dex/Faith Great Spear, I'd have two nickels. Which is a lot, considering that there are a total of six Great Spears.

                            The 1.09 nerfed a few overpowered things, but these didn't even get touched. Expect to see even more people dual wielding these in your invasions/duels.

                            • If I'm reading the game data right, the dual-wielded running attack with Great Spears hit 10 times. What's the interaction with things like Rotten Winged Sword Insignia, Millicent's Prosthesis, and Godskin Swaddling Cloth? Do the multiple hits trigger them as often as the numbers suggest or is there a penalty?

                                Why is the dual wielded crouch attack so fast? If i try to reaction dodge it, BOOM half my healthbar gone.
                                If i dodge before they attack they can reaction hit me.

                                The hell im i supposed to do?

                                  No great spears for INT, but two for FAITH or DEX + FAITH, "nice" I hope in DLC they add good great spear for INT or DEX + INT

                                    Lance: chilly mist + BHS power stance ooo how creative. Serpent Hunter: crouch r1 moment. Vyke's: ok so my arc build host will spam sleep grease ripple halberd running r1s while i phantom hit to apply frenzy, and when they fall asleep i press l2!!! xd!!! Mohgwyn: invader who tries to win with powerstance moveset and then gets frustrated, presses l2 until victorious, and teabags. Siluria's and Treespear are cool.

                                      I’m just saying that I use the tree spear everywhere I sometimes have to use a dagger on a faster target but still my main weapon is the tree spear

                                        I'm not sure why people gas up the power stance jump attack so much, its only really good against high recovery moves. Switch to a thrusting sword and then it's no longer useful.

                                          hmm today i will give the longest weapons in the game the best tracking attack in the entire game, surely this will have no repercussions on the balanced of pvp

                                            the irony of sweatlords that use 1 attack in a weapons moveset complaining about spell spam is just too sweet.

                                              Powerstanced cancer: cannot be jumped over (they hit upwards), outtrade anything (poke attack), fast as hell. Goddamn crouching mechanic just ruins all that sh*t.

                                                I hate that the "optimal" way to use these is just dual wield them and hump the ground. Talk about boring and low skill.

                                                    I think we should be able to change the ash on treespear, built in holy damage wouldn't be that strong and clayman harpoon already exists. Also the only great spear with a custom ash is Lance, and some people don't like the look of it.

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

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              • Anonymous

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.

                                                                                • Anonymous

I mean it literally uses a generic WA and it upgrades with normal smithing stones. WHY CANT IT BE INFUSED

                                                                                  • Anonymous

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

                                                                                      • Anonymous

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.

                                                                                          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.

                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                            • Anonymous

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.

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.
