Yorshka's Spear is a Spear in Dark Souls 3.

This treasure, gifted to the Yorshka Church, is enchanted with a soporific spell, and was surreptitiously worshiped by Irithyll slaves. 

As a weapon, it is part spear and part hammer, the former allowing thrusting, and the latter allowing strikes.

Skill: Pacify

With a prayer and an offering of this spear, temporarily wear down enemy FP with each strike.

Notes and Tips:

  • Cannot be Infused or Buffed. 
  • Reinforced with Twinkling Titanite.
  • The light attacks are thrust attacks whereas the strong attacks are strike attacks using the spear's crossguard.
  • Faith scaling was added in patch 1.13.

Location/Where to Find

  • Located in a chest in a dark room not far from the Church of Yorshka bonfire in Irithyll of the Boreal Valley. The room has lots of invisible and glowing eye enemies. The chest is up the ladder and across some beams and then you drop down to it. (Video)

      I have a high level 99 faith build (24 str/60 dex) I made for experimental purposes.
      Anyways, I have this spear at +4
      And at +4 it is getting a C scaling in STR, C in DEX and C in FAITH. So the above mentioned upgrade table is wrong for the +4 stats. At +5 the blacksmith shows that it remains a C across the board.
      and the AR 1h is 374, and 402 2h
      at +5 the AR 1h is 430, and 463 2h

        The base damage really needs a buff, or the scaling needs to be improved. Raising the +5 base damage to about 200, or having more scaling, perhaps even physical faith scaling, would help massively. Also, since Pacify only drains 6-11 FP per hit, lasting 45 seconds, it could be fairly improved by changing it to be an AoE passive fp drain of 5 FP a second to hostiles within the spears reach, whilst reducing its duration to 30 seconds maybe.

          What is the sense of this weapon that with a quality 40/40 it just has 345 AR, the weapon art is so slow that you could use it only at the beginning of the duel and you remove so little FP that before the enemy caster is without FP he is dead cause you killed him after poking so much

          • 07 Dec 2016 04:55  

            Does anyone know if partial strikes during a roll while using the weapon art will still drain FP?

            By partial strikes, I mean like instances when no damage is inflicted, but things like bleed will still activate and increase.

            • it just looks good24 Aug 2016 17:52  

              40/40 dual wield gives an astounding 355 AR<br/>amazing pokes and strikes that have no hyperarmor at all<br/>weapon ark drains basically nothing, but you'll never know this, because its next to impossible to hit someone with this, as this weapon also has no range.<br/><br/>BUT ***** WHY DOES IT LOOK SO COOL<br/>specially the WA

              • Wears down FP?26 May 2016 09:52  

                How much? How does it work? Is it a set number or a percentage? I wanna know if it's viable against weapon skill spammers and spellcasters.

                  Like, for reals. I picked this up to try it out all hype, and then realised I couldn't even break the 300 AR barrier with a 40/40 quality build. Why did FROM Soft decide to make all the cool-looking weapons so worthless?

                  • Underwhelming...07 May 2016 00:31  

                    I used this weapon for a short time before reverting to the dragonslayer spear. Nice moveset, but very low damage. Maybe useful for its L2 buff in PvP but I found it lasted for a very short duration. Not tested with lingering dragoncrest. Pass IMO.

                    • hmm...06 May 2016 23:30  

                      looks cool as hell with a great moveset so id like to use it but that base damage with that scaling and the faith requirement do not look promising. i was also gonna use lothrics sword as a backup but apparently thats pretty *****e too

                      • Partisan moveset25 Apr 2016 17:22  

                        I'm very curious about this weapon. No one seems to have tried it to great degree, including myself. It has the Partisan moveset, which is imo excellent, but I wonder how much of a difference its unique strike/pierce property makes.<br/><br/>Its ability to damage FP could be quite effective against other players Id imagine, assuming the effect is notable.
