Ritual Spear Fragment is a Consumable in Dark Souls 3. It is part of The Ringed City DLC.

Ritual Spear Fragment

Online play item.
A fragment of the matching ritual spears once held by the knights of Princess Filianore.

They are the namesake of the Spears of the Church.

When Spears of the Church face unduly treacherous foes, this allows them to draw upon former majesty, and summon a row of upward-thrusting ritual spears.


Ritual Spear Fragment Usage

  • Summon a row of upwardly thrusting ritual spears.
  • Gives the player poise when used
  • Can only be used if the Player is summoned as a member of Spears of the Church
  • When used the player can either be surrounded or "throw" the fragment just before them to summon upward thrusting ritual spears that deal lightning damage to foes. Spears will persist for a few seconds before disappearing. An additional line of spears will appear in the direction of when the item was originally used, not the direction of the player after using the item.



Ritual Spear Fragment Locations

  • Can be found behind the Spears of the Church Shrine. Which is just before the Cathedral Ringed knight.
  • From the Shared Grave Bonfire run up the path into the church. Once there take the stairs up on your left. Kill or run past the Ringed Knight in front of you and on the back of the Monument. Video Location




  • Summoned spears can be aimed
  • The spears can be used both offensively and defensively

        I wish this was a healing item of sorts, it would make the fight a lot more viable for characters without faith

          The cooldown seems to me to be variable. It’ll recharge eventually no matter what but hitting enemies seems to recharge it significantly faster. Has anyone done research on this?

            Last night I got summoned to role as Halflight boss (wearing Blade of Darkmoon Cov.).
            But I can use Ritual Spear Fragment normally.

              Anyone else feel like this is a reference to the dark execution spell from NiEr? Not saying it is but it would be nice if it was.

                  If you want the upward thrusting spears to show up, insted of being surrounded by them, move your right bumper on the controller in the direction you want them to show up while using this item.

                    how do you surround yourself with the spears? every time I use it they just go in a line

                      Just to clarify, it is unlimited use and only available to use when you are summon as a boss in the Spear of the Church covenant. It launches a row of spears in a straight line, which the direction is determined by where you are facing when you first use the item. The range is rather far, through if it encounter an obstruction, it will stop extending. The small steps around the arena may count as obstruction so keep that in mind.

                      It is not as effective in short ranges if locked on, as it may burrow into the ground and well, not extend fully as it registers as "meeting an obstruction" Might happen if your camera is facing downwards when using it. This might need more testing though.

                        "An additional line of spears will appear in the direction of when the item was originally used, not the direction of the player after using the item"

                        Can anyone clarify what this means? It's not making a great deal of sense to me as it is now written.

                        What does "the direction of when the item was originally used" mean, specifically? Does this mean that using the item for the first time will set some sort of way point toward which all subsequent uses of the spear fragment item will propagate a wall of spears? Or does this simply mean that the player can't use the item and "aim" it toward a new heading before the usage animation has finished; that is, once used, the direction being faced at the time it was used is the direction in which the wall of spears will be laid with no option to readjust where it is headed?

                          yes, can only use when you are the boss.
                          Can be used many times (I used more than 5 times in one invasive , should be unlimited) have a cool down time, feeling about 30 seconds

                            This item is only useable when you are an invader in the Spears of the Church boss fight, possibly only if you are in the Spears of the Church covenant.
