      Easily one of the best high level sorceries. It's Fp cost is way too cheap for it's DMG and also has tracking with a reasonable casting speed unlike sunlight spears or gnaw. Idk how mage builds are bad despite the existence of these and homing crystal soulmass. Imo offensive faith builds are much worse than mage builds

        I played for a lobg time souls franchise (even demon's souls original) i wanna say, this is very powerful,
        But manny player say"Op" meanwhile it's more an investment, sure it do a lot of damage with 60 or more int, but u have low health or in others stats u are weaker thab full melee, like faith, less range but with weapon art to help it in cqc
        Intel is more for distance "obviously"
        And with is weapon art too, it's not for melee like the talisman do.
        Both (sunlight spear) and crystal soul spear is equivalent, and even lighting have lower defense in game (for only 1%)
        The only miss understand for new player and haters, i wanna say Skills.
        Play sorcerer without unfathering prayer is a bit more tricky than going Ugs hyper armor and a lot of poise, a lot of caster prefer light armor to have more mobility, that's why u take high damage
        Also caster "spam" spells yes, cuz its their builds, don't be cancer and insult without knowing why they do.
        With that say, have a good day and gl hf

          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.
