Elden Ring Mohgwyn's Sacred Spear Notes & Tips

  • Weapon Skill: Bloodboon Ritual.
  • Bloodboon Ritual can hit targets from behind walls/objects and buffs the weapon with an effect similar Bloodflame Blade
    • The Buff adds a flat 30 AR of fire damage to the weapon regardless of weapon or stat level
    • The buff lasts for 20 seconds, which includes the cast time of the ability.  Effective use time is closer to 17 seconds
  • This weapon cannot be infused with Ashes of War
  • Mohgwyn's Sacred Spear can be upgraded by using Somber Smithing Stones
  • Despite consisting of multiple hits, the Weapon Art is NOT affected by any multi-hit talismans, such as Millicent's Prosthesis.  However, the damage is still increased if you have already generated the buff prior to using the Weapon Art 
  • Longest of the Great Spears.
  • Causes Blood loss Buildup: hemmorage (55) 
  • The Damage Scaling favors Arcane over Strength despite them both having a C rating at +10
    • This is because both physical AND fire damage both scale with Arcane
  • Sell Value:  er runes 13 1000

    • This weapon is indeed great for Malenia, but if you have a chance (a mage friend) - use two of them! You'll get this skill that let's you ram into her and do some real damage.
      If you want to see how it works you can search my video on youtube called Olya vs. Malenia =)

        At level 144 this weapon is the only reason I was able to defeat Malenia. From seemed to have nerfed strong weapons that are considered broken for PvP play but they forgot to nerf Malenia to match with the lower quality tools you have to defeat her with. I **** you not when I see pictures of Malenia on thumbnails in my YouTube feed I get f***ing ptsd.

          What is an ideal stat spread for this weapon? I'm going to respec to use this, but should I put way more into Arcane than into Strength? Where does the Arcane scaling lag off?

            bloodboon ritual has a hitbox on the tip of the spear when you stab it in the air even without fp very situational

              got invaded by a guy using this and full veterans at level 20. is there any stat distribution that makes that possible? i dont get it

                The bloodflame effect you get after using Bloodboon Ritual is really weak and short... Don't really see the point in it.

                  The spear of the literal lord of blood has a ****ing C scaling in arcane. Does Fromsoft just hate pure magic builds? I just don't get it. There are over 200 weapons in the game, and maybe 10 weapons that scale best with a magic stat, and like 5 that are exclusively for magic. (Moonlight Greatsword, Inseparable Sword, and Golden Order Greatsword. Cipher Pata and Coded sword as well, but they're pretty useless because Holy damage is a joke. The Ripple weapons are similarly not good because they do crap damage for the most part.)

                    unfathomable that this doesn't have a sweeping R2 like Vyke's. I guess that would maybe be too good, because it would probably deal blunt damage, but given how Mohg uses it and how few spears get partizan style sweeps, it feels pretty disappointing. Oh well, it's poking time, I guess.

                      dear all invaders that use this weapon,

                      refrain from using L2 directly on top of your fellow invader

                      thanks

                        As awesome as this spear is, i wish its moveset was a bit more like Mohg's moveset the way he swings and slams it.

                          Can it farm the Albinaurics in Mohgwyn's Palace easily? Doing a build where I couuuuld maybe fit in Golden Wave, but the Spear seems more enjoyable.

                            You can powerstance them, it satisfies my elden bling and it's quite effective. You can first use the WA of the left one 2 handed, then switch back to powerstance and use the WA of the right one, so you can light both of them. Also as someone said you can get some health back by putting the blasphemous blade on your back, you don't even need to meet the requirements for the weapon (not sure if it's intended, but still working for 1.6). The moveset is awesome, 2 handed or with powerstance (which is quite rare). It's a bit weird that I don't see more people powerstancing them, but I guess you can get a higher damage in 1 hit with other greatspears. I don't regret my shameful transition from my Bonk Bonk build, I'm doing more damage with jump attacks than with 2 colossal weapons (I'm not joking...). And almost every move in the moveset are not only usable but very effective for both Pve and Pvp. And you can trigger bleed very fast if something is using a shield for example. And split fire damage means longer staggering animations for everything weak to fire (there are a lot of enemies, see the fire damage page) + higher damage for critical hits (eg I'm doing just a bit less critical damage than with my cold miséricorde). And the gold cherry on top of the cake is of course the weapon art, but I'll stop here otherwise fromsoft will nerf this weapon into the ground and we'll be left with boring dual cross-naginata buids...

                                    Only time I’d say it’s ok to use Bloodhound Step is to get away from the WA on this and also Corpse Piler on RoB.

                                      Yes, obviously, the L2 is the star of the show here, but why can't it have any attacks that aren't just pokes? Mohg uses this thing like a greataxe-halberd, swingin' it all over the place, and that neat stab-spin combo he does in phase 2. And then in our hands it's one button to poke, one button to win the game.

                                        Im not sure if patch 1.05 introduced this but you can do this weapons ash of war without the required stats. I have no arcane investment and can still do the NIHIL AOE. Where as normally with weapons that you don't have the stats for it'll play the animation but not give you any effect. Like Vyke's spear wont have any fire on the ground but does the leap. It seems to be consistent that most weapons wont do the AOW without the stat so I'm not sure if this one is just an oversight, not that its even benficial. You'd want the arcane for bleed.

                                          does the bloodflame blade effect granted by the weapon art scale with any stat, like faith or arcane, or is it a flat buff? off the top of my head I think the bloodflame blade incantation scales with faith so that was my first thought, but I’m not certain.

                                            In the two hours of suffering I endured trying to kill Mohg at RL 68 to get this weapon early, having never even used it before, I asked myself, "Can this really be worth it? Is it worth the pain I'm putting myself through?"

                                            I'm sorry I ever doubted you, Mohgwyn's Sacred Spear. I will carry on Mohg's legacy.

                                              PvP is to the point where I have to fight cancer with cancer. The only reason I use this is when somebody spams Corpse Piler or something like dual bandits curved swords with Seppuku.

Absolutely dumpsters everything with its WA and it easily stance breaks with its incredible poise damage on jump attacks. If you’re thinking about trying this weapon, go for it. You’ll love it.

                                                  Easily the most broken weapon in the game for pvp. There’s pretty much nothing your opponent can do if you just hide with this weapon in a small spot with ledges. They’ll either die from the AoW or from falling down.

The ash of war is probably the biggest vigor check ever. Please, for the love of god hosts, level your vigor.

                                                        So after you use the ash of war it makes the spear do fire damage, so is it correct for me to assume that the fire on the blade scales with faith ?

                                                            The weapon art has somewhat impressive range, more so and more deadly when you consider that its range is vertical as well as horizontal and it can pass through walls. Basically, stand behind a wall or under a balcony (or both), blood boon, and listen as everything bleeds out, catches on fire, staggers, and then dies.

Ludicrously overpowered AoW on a very strong weapon, I'll be very surprised if this isn't nerfed in the future.

                                                                Just a really fun weapon in PvE and especially PvP, people don't see the WA coming since they only know the same 3 weapons + WAs and assume you're buffing up or something

Walked in the front gate of Stormveil straight through the archers and killed the lion by accident. Amazing how short the castle level is when you use the front door. Said hello to Godrick and was out the back in a bit over 30 minutes from game start. Then I realized I couldn't level up because I'd not yet sat at the site of grace. I'm no speed runner but this disco pole is just nuts.

                                                                            • Anonymous

Just stay behind the pillars and wait for him to get close. Spam the ash of war until victory. Tiche is good for this becuase she doesnt really draw agro and reduces the max health of the doggo.

I got her 2nd phase down to 25% hp after a guard break and barely manage to kill her with the full 3 stab before she waterfowl dance my ass into mince meat. All i can say is NIHIL !

                                                                                • This thing is insanely good that I'm wondering why they even buffed it to begin with. Longest Reach of all the Great Spears, Innate bleed damage, the ash of war does damage in a sphere around you and buffs the weapon with bloodflame, can hit targets through objects/walls, and it stuns mobs and players repeatedly while building bleed. They really need to nerf bleed weapons but until then, this thing is hands down the best great spear in the game.

                                                                                    It doesn’t seem to actually trigger the talismans themselves, at least not normally.
                                                                                    I.e: No you can’t ramp damage with just the Ritual

                                                                                    This I suspect is why it “doesn’t work with the Godskin Swaddling Cloth”
                                                                                    It doesn’t trigger successive attack effects, possibly the WA is considered a ranged attack rather than melee attacks like Eochaid’s Dancing Blade.

                                                                                    Lmk if you’ve experienced different results though!

                                                                                    TLDR: Talismans to max the standalone WA damage would be Fire Scorpion, Alexander’s Shard and Blood Exultation

                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                      I’m not sure whether Winged Sword Insignia + Millicent’s Prosthesis is better than just going for flat out damage talismans like Fire Scorpion Charm.
                                                                                      My tests are inconclusive since the WA just shreds everything too fast to tell.

                                                                                      • For Optimal Min/Max, start as a Hero and use millicents prosthesis to get dex to 14. I would focus on leveling arcane higher than strength as you get a higher bleed build up and the ar goes up slightly more with arcane.
