Halberds are a type of Weapon in Elden Ring. Halberds strike a balance between moderate damage and long reach, combining straight thrusting attacks and wide swinging strikes. 

Halberds can be modified by a number of Ashes of War to change their Skills or Damage Type, so play around with them and see what you like as you acquire more.

      I miss designs like Black Knight Halberd or Splitleaf greatsword, the halberds in this game are pretty disappointing to me in terms of design.

      • Anonymous

        So the most recent patch says it improves the guard counter of halberds, but it's way worse than any weapon type, just a basic soldier with a dagger stuns me in one hit, with full bullgoat, but with a straight sword I can successfully guard counter, every time it's not fixed in the slightest.

          The over head r2s are just so perfect. Pvp or pve. People can’t help but walk into them. And the followup r1 surprise is icing on the cake.

          • Anonymous

            After using mainly axes and daggers for my first few hundred hours, I decided to give this weapon class a try and it feels like I moved from the slums to the wealthy suburbs. It feels nice to be able to play reactively instead of planning ahead for every attack string. I didn't realize how much axes in particular were really lacking until I tried this class and straight swords.

            • I’m deciding between the Guardian’s Swordspear and Banished Knight’s Halberd. I’ll use Int or Faith affinities, so I think the Banished Knight’s Halberd has better scaling, even though Guardian’s Swordspear has better damage overall. The ashes of war damage doesn’t seem to change. I have only enough materials to upgrade one. What are your thoughts?

              • If that image is right then BK has slightly more range over its basic cousin. At least that's something to set them apart. I wonder if it uses a tiny bit more stamina too?

                • Anonymous

                  Hot take: I liked running attack from DS3 much more than the poke, that lets be honest, doesnt fit half of the halberds (how do you poke with shotel or saw, come on). At least they could make some weapons with poke running r1 and some with overhead swing.

                  • Anonymous

                    Power stance halberd wreck like crazy. The running r1 catches people off guard like crazy because of the poke/thrust meta

                      I wish they would just ditch the spinning heavy attack on Halberds already. Not only does it take forever to charge, it takes forever to do the full damage. I always get hit before the second attack lands - which no other weapon class has to deal with. It looks silly too. Seems like the Japanese weapons are the only ones with realistic, well-thought-out movesets. I wonder why that is...

                      • Anonymous

                        Wish we had more Int scaling ones than Loretta's, would love to run an INT build with a halberd that didn't require me get to the end of the game

                          Damn, and here I was thinking this weapon class wouldn't be able to top the general usefulness it hit in DS3. I will happily eat my words there.

                            as someone who mainly plays with swords i cannot get the hang of this moveset for the life of me. i've been trying to put my finger on it and i think it's the fact that halberd attacks don't move you forward nearly as much as, say, straight swords. even colossal swords have a pretty acrobatic moveset for how slow they are. how do y'all manage positioning when you gotta stand relatively still to do melee damage?

                              Rip the Black Knight Halberd design. This is my absolute favorite weapon class, but the old guandao look will be missed

                                It saddens me that the Bardiche never returned. It's ok though, there are still plenty of other Halberds to use.

                                  Bloody awesome weapon category. Long reach, PERFECT running attacks (poke for R1 running, and slash for R2), fast attacks, long reach, good poise damage, good damage overall. Rolling attacks are also quite fast and good.

                                  The only meh thing I can think about are slow guard counters (as compared, for example, with great spears) and maybe not so good charged R2s.

                                            • In my opinion, halberds are the best non-colossal weapons for if you plan on two-handing (not dual wielding, holding it with 2 hands).

                                              -The poise damage is very high, just barely behind greatswords.

                                              -The running R1 is (in my opinion) the most effective attack for pressuring other players with its huge momentum and spamability.

                                              -The damage for halberds is basically identical to greatswords. For example, a heavy Iron Greatsword and heavy Nightrider Glaive at 54 strength both have 725 damage (Both of these have the highest pure physical damage in their class).

                                              The one downside is the slow horizontal R2 attacks. The exceptions to this are the Lucerne, Golden halberd and the nightrider glaive, having vertical R2's which are much better.

                                                Halberd tips aren't the best. For instance the normal "Halberd" has a stabbing m1 animation while standing still but the "Glaive" has an overhead swing and etc. I prefer the stabbing animation but I think only 3 of them have it from the shape of the halberds (No clue since, again, the info of the halberds only lets us know the Swordspear and Loretta's has the under-swing animation).

                                                    The halberd has been my first choice of weapon since Demon Souls and I've never regretted it. Strong attack (Sweep) will catch most dodging side to side if they're not careful. The light attack (Poke) is great at keeping enemies at distance and can catch people in PvP trying to get away to heal. If they run at you to attack just press dodge to step back and follow up with a forward step poke. I've done so many builds in ER with this weapon (Ice Paladin mixed with faith, Mad Knight, Necro Knight) and I would recommend anyone to take the time to plan builds around this with a shield or no shield.

                                                      This weapon class needs a poise damage nerf in pvp. Pretty absurd that an r1 can shut down anyone who isnt wearing full bull goats. Even when they should have hyper armor. They do even more poise damage than ultras, have more reach and a higher attack speed. Worst of all they seem nearly impossible to parry.

                                                      TLDR Halberds are the most unbalanced weapon class in the game with no real downsides.

                                                      • Anonymous

                                                        I personally struggle the make Halberds work. Some of them have the Reaper moveset, but don't hook behind shields as Reapers do. The others have the thrusting L1s, but you drop your shield when using them and there's no ramp up on R2 the way a Lance has.

                                                        For all the ones I could check, they use the same powerstance moveset as Reapers, but without the hooking behind shields. And Reapers have similar stance breaking damage.

                                                        I'm happy for everyone that enjoys these weapons, but I just can't see any real advantage to them.

                                                        Not a hatepost and not suggesting we min-max the fun away, but an entire class of weapons could bring something unique. I wish we got a Poleaxe, which would do piercing or slashing or strike damage, whichever was max against any particular enemy when two-handing it. Because that was a real weapon and it actually was two-handed. That would be a fun and unique halberd.

                                                        Or, did I miss something?

                                                          Probably my favorite weapon class after 500 hours. For strength I recommend the Nightrider Glaive or the Gargoyle Halberd. For dexterity or intelligence, I recommend the Guardian Swordspear or the Vulgar Militia Shotel. My favorite thing about halberds is their running attacks. All of the running lights and heavies of the four that I mentioned above are good for different reasons. My second favorite thing about halberds is the excellent range of weapon arts that are available for them: Giant Hunt, Sword Dance, Piercing Fang, Flaming Strike, Flame of the Redmanes, Thunderbolt, Loretta's Slash, Glintstone Pebble, Cragblade, Royal Knight's Resolve, the list goes on. What are your favorite ashes of war on halberds? What is you favorite halberd?

                                                            just tested since i couldn't find the info anywhere. these weapons have the poke moveset:
                                                            * halberd
                                                            * banished knight's halberd
                                                            * dragon halberd
                                                            * commander's standard

                                                            these two have the faster diagonal slash moveset (with lower poise damage):
                                                            * loretta's sickle
                                                            * guardian swordspear

                                                            the rest of the halberds have the normal overhead swipe, 2x horizontal swipe, overhead swipe combo.

                                                              This weapon class is probably the king of rollcatches. If you know the timing you can actively punish bad players who panic roll. Tip for others: don't panic roll when you get hit, especially against halberds. You will most likely get demolished.

                                                                  Kind of interesting that there seems to be two different tiers of halberds. There are halberds like the Lucerne and the Guardian's Swordspear that don't flinch stronger enemies, while on the other hand, halberds like the Nightrider Glaive and regular Halberd will flinch even the sewer Omens like they're greatswords. It doesn't seem related to weight or stamina damage, so I'm not really sure what one type from the other.

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    • Anonymous

This is the one certain skeleton enemies are using and drops from them. Pretty rare it seems (took me about a hundred kills) and I haven't seen many of these enemies around, just two in Sellia on the way up the mountain where the Church of the Plague (the one with Millicent) is. One is right next to grace you start at when heading up to the church, only accompanied by a single bowman and easily farmable, can even be backstabbed as it gets out of the ground.
