      using this and occasionally, when the opportunity arose for it, soul stream, managed to defeated soul of s cinder and the nameless king using court sorcerers staff +10, and both sorcery boosting rings

        there is skill to using sorceries. i dont personally use them because i kill every sorcerer i come across, but you have to be careful of your distance, too far and youll miss, too close and youll get battered by your opponent. the casting time of sorceries probably needs to balance more with the quantity of damage some of them can do, wack the sages ring +2 on using this spell and your pretty much golden if you can keep your distance. HOWEVER: for those of you who complain left, right and center about sorcery requiring no skill, if that is so, how come you all always die? try this, if you see a sorcerer, bait them. dont get out in the open, they will mash you. you need to get close. VERY close. if you equip a fast attacking weapon that does some bleed and poison damage, get right up in their face and mash away at the r1 or attack button (depends on console) yourself. if you dont suck major metaphorical testies, youll see an increase in your success against them. Again, this is skill to sorcery, but that is everyones downfall, those of you who die assume you will lose because they require no skill to do what they do, and those sorcerers who constantly mash their attack button because they think it takes no skill will quickly see themselves be rushed time and time again because they keep miss-firing and wasting fp.

          I noticed that when Lothirc joins lorian in the 2nd phase he can shoot a golden Crystal soul spear. Also, when Pontiff Sulyvahn does a thrust attack with his Greatsword of Judgment the sword shoots what looks somewhat like a purple Soul Spear

          • I hate this spell07 Oct 2016 09:48  

            Don't be that *****er who spams this spell along side homing soul mass in pvp or in invasions, But to those who uses this we are all "impressed" with the amount of skill you have with useing R1 or L1.

            • There is no balance in this game06 Oct 2016 13:19  

              How can miyazaki allow this to happen while lightning miracles do nothing in damage? Its clear miyazaki is showing favoritism for sorcery and quality builds.

              • Crazy Damage02 Aug 2016 06:31  

                This thing will do 1200 damage with a fully souped up sorcerer build. That is op. This thing needs to be WAY toned down, if only to make it more balanced. You can one-shot the giants in Sully P's backyard with this thing...

                • Boom17 Jul 2016 03:42  

                  This thing is like a nuke.<br/><br/>Is it cheap? No.<br/>Is it easy to get? No.<br/>Is it versatile? No.<br/>Does everyone have it? No.<br/>Does everyone need it? No.<br/>Is it better than everything else you can get? No.<br/><br/>But will it deal massive, crippling damage against almost anything you fire it at? Yes.

                    It costs way too much FP, useless in PvE when you can get almost the same damage from GHSA for much less cost. Granted its casting time is far quicker than GHSA but definitely not worth all that FP lol. On the other hand in PvP it's too effective, yes, it's easy to dodge, but in lag you get hit no matter what you do, and vs co-op'ers it's an insta death to get hit with it while you're in stun animation. Buff FP consumption and simultaneoulsy tone done the damage abit @fromsoft

                      damages/FP cost is really bad, soul arrow is the best cause casting time and not much overkill, <br/>BUT the range of the lock on with CSS is oO...twice the distance of SA at least!

                      • usles in pve uness all ash estus is your thing07 May 2016 07:01  

                        Relatively FP cost is at least 20 points too high on both soul spears... bloody disappointing.

                        • Let me offer a different perspective -06 May 2016 01:56  

                          Instead of buffing the spell damage (which we all know isn't going to happen ever since the magic hating Yui took over as middle management. Spells are just not as sexy to watch lets plays as melee. From DS2, one could tell that he almost wants a fighting game, but whatever), I would prefer a more high powered staff/stave. The reason is simple - I can achieve similar damage with this spell in DS 1 in this game (only against certain mobs in this game unlike 1), but I would need 2 more rings to do it. I used Crystal Staff, Bellowing Dragoncrest ring, and Crown of Dusk in DS 1 to do about 1300+ damage. That's all I needed. But in DS 3, I need Court Staff +9, Bellowing ring, Young Dragon ring, Magic Clutch ring + Crown of Dusk to do similar damage. 2 of those gear can give me serious damage when worn against the wrong opponent and yet I am doing no better than DS 1. <br/><br/>It just feels really dumb. Once I picked up Soul Spear/Crystal Soul Spear, I never touched any of the Soul Arrow family again in DS1.

                            so bad, GHSA deals slightly less for a lot less FP. Sorcereries and Miracles need re balanced. This thing for it's cost should deal a lot more damage then it is doing. Only reason I see using magic is for the weapon buff and nothing else

                            • Disappointing19 Apr 2016 23:29  

                              It's a bit of a let down to go the whole of the game using basically only Heavy Soul Arrow and Greater Heavy Soul Arrow for their Damage per FP cost. The only thing that Crystal or normal Soul Spear do are drain your mana quickly for very little value.

                              • Surprisingly Underwhelming17 Apr 2016 19:50  

                                Considering how late in the game you get this, it really isn't THAT much better than Greater Heavy Soul Arrow. Hell, the normal (not Crystal) Soul Spear BARELY eeks out ahead of GHSA and it costs a whole lot more FP. A spell requiring 48 INT - the ultimate form of Logan's legendary Soul Spear - should most definitely not do ~20% more damage than an improved version of the most basic Sorcery. If you're already committed to Sorcery, most definitely pick this up for the visuals if nothing else - just lower your expectations before you look at the damage numbers. However, if you are planning to go with an INT build because of cool high-end spells like this, you are probably setting yourself up for disappointment. :/<br/><br/>p.s. I will give the spell credit when used against bosses weak to Magic - with 50 INT and a +10 Staff it decimates their health pool in a very satisfying and flashy fashion. That said, a heavy weapon with sufficiently high STR could probably achieve the same result with much less frustration and, possibly, a lot less investment.

                                • Comparison16 Apr 2016 18:35  

                                  Great Heavy Soul Arrow does 559 damage, Soul Spear does 582 damage, and Crystal Soul Spear does 730 at 50 int with the Court Sorcerer's Staff +7. This and soul spear only outperform ghsa when you are firing at a line of enemies, otherwise I don't see them being worth the 55 fp expenditure.
