        Did anyone notice that Sunlight Spear seems to be bugged after the April 12 update I keep getting ~300 damage at close range especially when my opponent is attacking

          50 fth yorshka chime (fully upgraded) with morne ring+first born ring+lightning ring = 550-650 dmg when thrown
          same build with fully upgraded canvas talisman with close up with Weapon Art = 800-1000 dmg when directly hit.
          With canvas talisman build the Lightning Stake close up = 500-700 dmg when hit directly at enemy.

          IF anyone interested about DMG comparison.

            Im seeing a little dispute a couple of comments down, about not enough damage... want more damage? make a mage, clerics heal balance out the fact they dont do much damage you cucks

              miracles: lightning, lasers rain from the sky, AOE explosion.
              pyromancies: meteors, lava spires, fireballs that shoot fireballs
              sorceries: the most spectacularly terrible death laser ever.

                When you're near a bonfire (i was at firelink) i casted it and it "shocked" the sword, as i casted it near it put another lightning strike on the coiled sword

                  +10 yorshka's chime with morne rin+sun first ring+ Lightning clutch ring and 68 faith this thing hits 1.98k on the lothric knights. Not that great tbh but the damage can be buffed with sacred oath and deep protection.

                    Regulation 1.08 sped up the cast time? We don't need *****ing sped up cast times, we need better FP to damage ratios. Either lower the *****ing FP cost or increase the ***** damage.

                      Literally the most powerful miracle. Insane in pvp when paired with a sunlight tali (dat poise tho) and hits most enemies like a truck. Mandatory for cleric builds. It does lightning damage, so for max dmg, use the lightning clutch ring, the ring of the sun's firstborn, and morne's ring. 700-800 on most enemies with 60 faith. Trivializes archdragon peak. The downside is how expensive it is. You will need at least 40 attunement to make it worth your time. Would also recommend using the great lightning spear alongside it for squishier enemies, or just lightning stake. Does even more damage than the Swordspear's weapon art, even at range. If you use a chine and hit someone close range, expect 1200 damage or so.

                        I cast this with 25 dex along with Sage's Ring and no sound effect until thrown. I take the Sage's Ring off and it does have the sound effect. Not sure if this is useful (probably an oversight with the new patch), maybe when someone is running away and listening for the animation?
