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)

      Ideas for this weapon...

      Increase the base damage to something along the lines of 110/128/146/164/182/200? A bit of straight-up damage wouldn't hurt, I don't think, and if the table's any indication its progression is way out of whack anyhow.

      Weapon Art: In a similar vein, why not add a minor Darkmoon effect to Pacify? Not much, maybe: something like 20/22/24/26/28/30 (C Faith scaling) seems realistic- just a bit of extra shave damage for turtles, and appropriate lore-wise given that it is a weapon worshiped as a relic of the captain of the Blades of the Darkmoon. Maybe also make it so that it gives back a small fraction of the base FP per hit back when used in PvE (1-3) so that it has some utility in that regard, and/or make the light it provides sufficient to illuminate the nearby area as a light source? The room you get it in would be pretty ideal for its use, if all of this was the case.

      Perhaps grant it +10% phys./mag./dark absorbtion and +10-15 Stability, to make it a decent magic/dark blocking shield in a pinch? That'd be a neat niche if nothing else.

      This is pretty modest, I'd like to think. Given that it's unlikely that this, a weapon clearly intended for late-game if the lower base damage and high scaling is indicative at all, would break 500 AR at 40 Str/40 Dex/40 Fth without the hypothetical 30-50 AR buff from the WA for the whole less than a minute that it lasts... compare that to the sorts of ARs I've seen on a Lightning Blade-buffed Sunlight Straight Sword/Saint's Bident? ...yeah... it'd be nice if this weapon had a reason to be used. As of now, I don't see much beyond the style.

        I love how this weapon got the worst buff from the patches and ringed knight ultra greats got buffed, nerfed, then buffed again. Thanks a lot fromsoft.

          They need to change this weapons scaling to D/D/-/B and lower it's strength requirement to 14.

          At min stats +60 faith it should be doing ~390 AR, higher than that of the Saints Bident, but unbuffable as a compromise.

          Then this weapon would finally see some use.

            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

              As of regulation 1.33, this is finally getting a faith scaling

                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 10:55  

                    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.

                      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

                        The base damage needs buffed, and it NEEDS faith scaling. You find it next to a church, for God's sake! Yorshka's church!

                          Wears down FP?26 May 2016 15:52  

                          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 06:31  

                              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.

                                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

                                  So it's the weapon the Lucerne always should have been? A hammer and a spear? Only it doesn't look as nice unfortunately...

                                    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.
