      I've ended up using this on some bosses... Since it does do more damage than GHSA, it does let me kill a boss faster, and the fight is typically over before I've exhausted my ashen estus supply. In this situation, GHSA is only really better if it's going to be a drawn out fight for some reason, or you want to conserve your focus for other spells as well.<br/><br/>I've also used it in PvE where I know I won't run out of focus before the next bonfire and I just want to have higher damage output against mobs... the spear also does travel faster, so it's a little easier to apply long ranged pressure with. I found that white dragon breath actually does more damage at less focus cost, although that thing can be a bit tricky to hit with.<br/><br/>In any case, I haven't acquired CSS on my sorcerer yet, although I imagine I will be permanently retiring this spell once I have.

        Dmg output compared to Great Heavy Soul Arrow isn't much different when you consider the FP cost too. Long story short; I dealt 618 with GHSA and 643 on the same enemy when the FP cost of them are 14 and 40 respectively
