Arstor's Spear is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.
One of the curses that festered within the belly of the Greatwood, and a terrible weapon favored by Earl Arstor the Impaler.
The spear is enwreathed in rotten, heavily poisonous meat. Defeating foes restores HP.
Skill: Shield Splitter
Take a large step forward and make a single focused thrust to puncture enemy shields and inflict damage.
Notes and Tips:
- Cannot be Infused or Buffed.
- Reinforced with Titanite Scales.
- While equiped Arstor's Spear will cause the wielder to receiver 30HP whenever an enemy dies. This happens regardless of whether or not the player is present for the killing.
- Stacks additively with Ring of the Evil Eye allowing for upwards of 60HP per kill - effective against large groups of weaker enemies including Deacons of the Deep.
- Most likely belonged to Sir Arstor of Carim, mentioned in Dark Souls 1's Bloodbite Ring, Cursebite Ring, and Poisonbite Ring description. Is also credited for creating Purging Stones, and the Shotel.
