      Yet another total "fck u" to miracle builds. They had lightning spears, but some idiot in fromsoft decided to focus their damage on melee, despite how straight swords, curved swords, axes, etc... do a far better job at it.

        Despite playing a lot, i can barely remember hitting anyone in PvP with this, who wasn't panic-rolling or chugging. I prefer backward jumping with HSM, FGD spam and area denial with Crystal and Farron Hail. GHSA is way more efficient for spamming.

          Probably one of the few ds1 spells that retains some of their old good power and effectiveness in this game.

            I prefer this over Great Heavy Soul Arrow, simply because of its faster cast animation, faster travel time, higher damage, piercing quality, and let's not forget the orgasmic sound effect

              Hreat spell for farming area next to the Archdragon Peak bonfire. 2 casts, if you line up the spell correctly, net you over 26K souls in about 15 seconds in NG+.

                768 damage @ 14 FP with Great Heavy Soul Arrow on Lorian... ~980 @ 43 with Crystal Soul Spear in the same conditions. Might be better in PvP but not worth it in PvE.

                  for PvE, the fp cost makes it kinda useless sadly. basically for all bosses i notice, personally, that i do better with a couple extra rolls than taking less ashen estus drink, aggresive kills you then. if you use this instead of Great heavy soul arrow you have to drink too much ashen estus, in pvp I actually haven't tried it yet, and it sounds like it's what we use there, but in PvE it's not as good as great heavy soul arrow imo.

                      Crystal Gank Spear.
                      Further sharpens ganking via crystallization.

                      Fires a piercing crystal gank spear.

                      According to the Crystal Sages, landing such a spell is ineffective if the opponent isn't occupied, where they came to find the quintessence of sorcery in the facets of using it with phantoms present.

                        This spell is supposed to do a***** ton of damage. Fromsoft, please don't listen to the "CRYSTAL NOOB SPEAR!" or "IT"S TOO OP!" people who don't know how to dodge spells.

                            Why does this thing deal similar damage to great soul dreg and cost 16 more FP.....? The FP cost on this thing is still unreasonable.

                              using this and occasionally, when the opportunity arose for it, soul stream, managed to defeated soul of s cinder and the nameless king using court sorcerers staff +10, and both sorcery boosting rings

                                there is skill to using sorceries. i dont personally use them because i kill every sorcerer i come across, but you have to be careful of your distance, too far and youll miss, too close and youll get battered by your opponent. the casting time of sorceries probably needs to balance more with the quantity of damage some of them can do, wack the sages ring +2 on using this spell and your pretty much golden if you can keep your distance. HOWEVER: for those of you who complain left, right and center about sorcery requiring no skill, if that is so, how come you all always die? try this, if you see a sorcerer, bait them. dont get out in the open, they will mash you. you need to get close. VERY close. if you equip a fast attacking weapon that does some bleed and poison damage, get right up in their face and mash away at the r1 or attack button (depends on console) yourself. if you dont suck major metaphorical testies, youll see an increase in your success against them. Again, this is skill to sorcery, but that is everyones downfall, those of you who die assume you will lose because they require no skill to do what they do, and those sorcerers who constantly mash their attack button because they think it takes no skill will quickly see themselves be rushed time and time again because they keep miss-firing and wasting fp.
