Saint Bident is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



A silver bident decorated by a holy symbol, formerly wielded by Saint Klimt. He discarded this weapon, that draws upon one's faith, on the day that he put his own faith behind him.

Skill: Charge
Hold spear at waist and charge at foe. Use strong attack while charging to extend the length of the charge.



Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • Resembles the weapon wielded by Archangel Avacyn, a character from the trading card game "Magic: the Gathering"
  • It's actually longer than the Pike while still having the same moveset as standard spears (its normal and heavy attacks are much faster than pikes). 
  • Faith scaling was buffed in regulation 1.32. Now has C faith scaling at regular +10 compared to D scaling pre-patch.
  • With 60 Faith and at base requirements for Strength and Dexterity with the Lightning infusion the AR is 504, +10 uninfused with Lighting Blade the AR reaches 552.



Location/Where to Find

  • Found at Cathedral of the Deep: next to one of the chained-Giants, there is a big blue door that leads to the area where this is found.
  • Watch the Fextra Video at 2hr 31mins 31secs in.

      The only weapon with decent faith scaling until Sunlight Straight Sword, plus it's absurdly long while keeping the faster spear moveset.

        Really nice pokey-stick for a Strength-Faith build. Probably not something you want as a primary, but it's quite useful against Midir.

        • Anonymous

          It fits with the story, but it's also kinda false advertising to say that it gets power from faith & has an A scaling when Blessed, but also has the worst damage in that infusion.

            i have 30 faith and lightening infusion but i’m only dealing like 50 damage to people wtf, why is it so weak??

            • Anonymous

              I find it funny how this is longest spear in the game because your character holds it from the back instead of the middle.

              • Anonymous

                wait, why does the faith scaling increase with the crystal infusion? why dosen't it add int scaling with a lightning infusion? f*ckin miyazaki int adjust faith catalysts

                • Anonymous

                  this seems to have the direct hit mechanic from demon's souls. damage is weak, unless you hit with the very edge of the weapon. most times you'll be out of range or you'll get the reduced damage for being a pixel too close.

                  • Anonymous

                    This thing looks amazing with Darkmoon Blade, which I actually prefer over an infusion build anyway. The trick with buff builds is that it's rather easy to wait out the buff, and so you need to choose weapons that are good at pressuring, and also weapons that would benefit from the buff more so than just innate elemental damage. Spears and rapiers fill that niche really nicely because spears and rapiers are pretty good at pressuring because of their running R1s and roll-catching capabilities, respectively, and, more importantly, would lose a lot of counter damage (especially with Leo Ring) as counter damage is calculated strictly from your "Thrust" AR and not your elemental infusion AR.

                      The scaling seems very unique on this one, heavy infusion seems to retain the faith scaling, refined infusion actually increases the faith scaling, lightning infusion retains the str/dex scaling.... needs to be looked into.

                        This things range is annoying. I swear, never see it in duels, but every gank squad has atleast one to chase you down, interrupting attacks from a distance.

                        • As of 2/21/19 the Scaling listed here is old/wrong. Rank 10; Standard DDxC) Heavy CxxC) Sharp EBxC) Refined DDxC) Crystal DECB) Simple DDCB) Chaos DECB) Lightning DExA) Blessed DExA) Dark DECB) Blood DDxC +51 10Lck) Poison DDxC +57 10Lck)

                          • One of the best Spears for Faith builds in the game. Wieghs much less than D.S.S and D.S S.S. Buffable/Infuseble, favors Lightning, Chaos and Dark. Also has 350 AR around 50 Faith with Min Dex/Str. I'd have infused it but I like to swap between Buffs. I imagine this'll really shine in NG+ Refined or Hollow. I've got 40 Dex, 50 Faith. Str and then Luck is next. I play in my free time, I'll post when I get around too it

                              dark and chaos infusions both have a good chance of being powerful with only faith investment, alongside lightning, giving you options.

                                I have 12/12/60 str dex and faith respectively, I infuse the saint bident with a dark gem and it hits for 476 AR, pairing that with a lightning longsword that hits for 458 AR you can now have 2 weapons with different elemental damage for Faith, Lightning Saint Bident has 504 AR but we all know that dark is better for PvP

                                  Such a weak, WEAK weapon. Without any buffs this thing does less than 200 DMG to online players, 250-300 with no armour and around 400 MAYBE for those wearing clutch rings and other weakening rings and buffs.

                                    this weapon when infused with lightning has a reverse damage cap starting at around 70 faith. the damage per point ramps up for each point put in after up to 99.

                                      Can confirm: Lightning infusion retains physical damage scaling. At 12/12/50 str/dex/fth, it has nearly equal amounts of scaling in lightning and physical. The only difference being the base dex and str increase the physical scaling a touch, but it’s a drop in the pond at +10.

                                          Has anyone tried going str/faith instead of dex/faith with this? The reason I ask is that the biggest problem I can see with this is that you’ll inevitably want to poke from behind a shield, which means high stability is a must and great shields would be ideal.

                                            Could you imagine if instead of nerfing the Gargoyle Flame Spear they buffed it, made it look fashionable instead of ugly, and then allowed infusions and buffs on it? Thats the Saint Bident.

                                              With heavy i get a c in strength and Faith on me build which has 50 str and 30 faith i get 409 ar plus lightning buff gets me to 546 ar so this is quite vible darkmoon might be better on it though

                                              • So, even this late in the game, this seems to be the new Washing Pole; at least judging by the number of arena people I've seen with it who basically almost exclusively use its running attack.

                                                  This isn't just DMB / SLB fodder any more. Dark saint bident on even a 30/30 INT/FAI build is a beast for catching roll spammers. Stupid length and good damage and chip.

                                                    it seems to have a higher faith hard cap than most weapons my faith is at 60, but if I wear the priestess ring(+5 faith) it gains 6 damage, any one know what the hard cap is?

                                                    • Anonymous

                                                      It went from E, E, D to E, D, C, and now to D, E, C? I'm glad that they improved the Faith scaling, but why nerf the Dexterity scaling? We can't have the Silver Knight Spear, so let us have a good Dexterity scaling spear, From!

                                                      • Really good with lightning infusion as it already scales with faith it ends up having about 100 more physical ar than anything else (504 total at base stats w/60 faith)

                                                        • With the recent buff to Chaos/Dark infusion and Saint Bident's innate long reach, it could potentially become "Gargoyle Spear Ver 2 for pyormancers". At str/dex/int/faith 12/16/40/40 and dark infusion, it has a combined AR 499 (219 physical and 281 dark), a little higher than Gargoyle Spear at 15/18/40/40 before its nerf. Saint Bident also has lower str/dex requirement and is lighter, ideal for pyromancer builds that would like to pour more points into other stats.

                                                          • Highly underestimated weapon. The biggest advantage is that you can double dip on the faith scaling since it is buffable. At base physical stats and 60 faith while one handed, it has an attack rating that is roughly 100 AR higher than a normal spear at base stats. Then, add Lightning blade or Darkmoon blade to that and you end up with a spear that has roughly 650 or so AR depending on your chime. This means that a true "Pure Faith" build can still fight on par with most quality or pure strength builds and still be able to cast powerful miracles.

                                                            Side note, the bident pairs incredibly well with the Crucifix of the Mad King. if you go 27 strength / 60 faith and 2 hand, a heavy bident will have a base AR of about 400, and the Crucifix, a buffable a strength/faith weapon will also have a huge AR and hyper poise while 2 handed.

                                                              Buffed with Ltg. Blade; 533AR w/ 40DEX 35FTH, sharp infused. I think that is quite good for using one-handed.

                                                              • Don't let some of the comments or peoples negative opinions let you underestimate this weapon! Incredible reach and a solid spear for poking in-between casting miracles on a faith focused build. I'm currently using it for my healer build that focuses on co-op and dark moon invasions and nothing says ally more than casting healing spells while poking at an enemy invader who is trying to kill your host ally as a dark moon ally.

                                                                  Ironically when you infuse this with blessed, it lowers the faith scaling… i mean sure it gets the HP regen but the AR just takes a complete dump… and yeah I realise this happens with most blessed infusions, but man you would think it would improve the weapon… Even lightning isn't that great. seems the best bet is to go raw or sharp/heavy/refined depending on your stats and then buff with your lightning/darkmoon blade

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    wait a second... this has physical faith scaling right? so lightning infusion increases faith scaling to C. so wouldnt faith give you extra damage in lightning AND physical damage?

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        this weapon is actually good. Don’t use it aggressively, though. I recommend building strength for a decent greatshield, nice faith and going for regen build. Vitality for an offhand butcher knife, decent armor...
                                                                        You could really abuse the bidents range, use blessed weapon and use leo’s ring, Lloyd’s shield and sword rings, and lastly use the pontiff’s right eye, or sun priestess ring.

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            I've been using this on my cleric... it allows me to keep a low strength and dexterity value while benefiting from my high faith (60 in my case), and then I buff it with lightning blade.Obviously better weapons out there, but it's got an oddly long reach and does around the same damage that I was doing with my raw mace earlier. Plus it looks cool, especially with the lightning buff... looks like a lightning fork.I'd probably ditch this if I decided to reallocate some stats into strength or dexterity though.

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              It's unique that this has C/C scaling with crystal infusion. Might be a decent infusion on a magic based FTH build using the archdeacon's staff.

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                The maggot mages near the rosaria covenant cast gold colored spells that look exactly like the tip of the saint bident. Makes me wonder if theres some spell/equipment combo to achieve those shots or somehow improve the spear.

                                                                                • Like said, it has pretty absurdly low base damage even at optimal stats it calls for, and all the infusions seem really bad, but it is really really long.I'm guessing that's From Soft's rationality for making it on the weak side physically...although to be honest maybe its just the way the game is but I don't find its length all THAT much of an advantage to justify the weak damage, there's other weapons that are nearly just as long and hit a lot harder. And also pierce shields.It's a shame cause i think it looks really cool. I won't complain if it gets even a slight base damage buff.

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                    Physical faith scaling, and can be infused/buffed. A real oddity.About average damage by itself, if a little below average, even with high FTH. Whilst all of its scaling is D, the FTH scaling is slightly higher, so if you're going to use this, pump dat faith.I wouldn't bother infusing it with anything; Heavy is bad for this, Sharp is bad, Refined is bad, Raw is bad. Blessed is absolutely worthless, actually lowering the faith scaling to an even lower D grade. If you are going to infuse it with anything, Lightning and Dark are the only decent infusions, but these introduce split-damage to the weapon and hamper the already low base damage, overall lowering its quality.It's much better to leave this weapon uninfused, and just buff it with Lightning Blade, Blessed Weapon, Dark Blade, or Darkmoon Blade. You will get far better results.In terms of the weapon itself in combat, it's extraordinarily long for a regular spear, it's as long as the Pike-style spears, but has the regular spear moveset. It has a rather specific sweet-spot just before the end of the spear, but not at the end of the spear, it's strange, and can hamper the weapon in combat when keeping an enemy at the optimal range can be difficult. The R2 attacks ignore the sweet-spot and deal full damage regardless of range. The R2s also have some innate shield-piercing, even a 100% block greatshield will take 100~200 damage per blocked charge-R2, depending on your AR.The spear does have very low base damage though, and is quite heavy. Don't expect to pick this up and immediately get better results than the Deep Axe or something else available so early in the game. It takes a while before it gets going.

                                                                                    • It's at least notable as a Faith-scaling weapon that can still be buffed, which is extremely rare in this series. It's not a very good Faith-scaling weapon, and there are better things you can buff, but it's also pretty fast, has long range, and low Str/Dex requirements, though the weight is a tad obscene.

                                                                                        • Kinda interesting to make it Hollow infused, as a backup Faith/Luck scaling weapon to Anri's Sword. Seems to be the only other weapon able to scale off both.
