Use Soul Spear instead. Take a bit more FP but it's a bit more powerful and faster.
Why did they make this do almost the same damage as Soul Spear? Did they not test this? There's no point in using Soul Spear over this for the most part.
Based on the numbers I've pulled up via soulsplanner, taking into account FP cost per cast, at 60 INT/30 ATT with the Court Sorcerer staff the Heavy Soul Arrow trumps Great Heavy Soul Arrow for damage efficiency, doing 10845 damage per FP bar compared to 9602.9 damage per FP bar from Great Heavy Soul Arrow. This is before defenses are taken into account however which may (though I doubt it) have an effect, but I have to call into question at this point the validity of Great Heavy Soul Arrow being the superior of the two based on the numbers I'm getting (FP total/Spell Cost/Spell "AR")
imporves upon the heavy soul arrow
At 60 int this one can take out prince, dragons layer armor in about 7 casts
Is this better to use in pvp instead of soul spear?
Is this spell affected by all the possible magic damage buff item, such as the crown, rings and the scholar thing ? (gonna ask the same question about a few other spell if it has not already been asked)

2 or 3 of these and Sulyvahn beasts staggers, a useful trick for sorcerers
One of the most efficient damage spells in the game. Combine this with hidden body to pretty much do whatever you want.
