Tailbone Spear is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.

Twisted spear favored by the wretched, failed prisoners of Irithyll Dungeon.

Crafted from a feeble tailbone, and seen as a sign of the dragons. Their screams are oft heard inside the dungeon, as they naively mutilate their unworthy flesh.

Skill: Unleash Dragon
Thrust the spear to unleash the strength of dragons, similar to an ancient dragon weapon, only with its power tragically faded.

      This weapon is as 'good' as people say it is. Not a very good spear, but a powerful PvP tool nonetheless. Any build that has the stats to support it should probably farm for it. Just like a blessed caestus it's in your inventory for utility, not damage. You invest in this thing for the same reasons you'd invest into Force, to destroy gankers and hackers.

        I got the tailbone spear and then short sword, from two successive enemy drops, while playing normally / not farming / no item discovery gear equipped. my brother who was co-oping at the time couldn't believe it as he'd never even heard of them. guess that's my luck for this playthrough!

          Excellent weapon. Especially when fighting gank squad at Pontiff. Moat people expect force to be used on the pillars, but this has greater range and is less obvious, you can knock them off through the walls and pillars. Also great to fight people that like to roll constantly or spam weapon arts.

            Excuse me, this stick with a bone on it is reinforced with probably the rarest upgrade mat.? I know the dragonchaser ashes fix the rarity but, aside from lore, that's still pretty obscene for a spear that is only relevant because it's a stabby version of emit force

              You think this is hard to get? Try getting the snake man's staff. Had to get my luck to +20, gold coin, symbol of averice, and i had to kill the dude around 30 times before i got it. Not disappointed traded it for soliare's shield.

                Weapon art is rather annoying, but you can just block it with medium shield and recovery time for this isn't that great, though if you are near the cliff and without a shield you might as well jump off of it.

                  Was doing some 2v2's last night and guy on oppersite team was using this thing. Was wearing very light armour so must have had Flynns ring on and probably Leo ring too. When up close I was getting poked to death with 2 handed R1's before I could even get an attack off (I was using Ledo's Great Hammer) and from I distance I was constantly getting knocked over by the WA. It reaches way further than you think and I was constantly getting hit by it as I was respawning in. Very annoying.

                      I swear this doesn't exist. I've farmed absolutely everything but this. I'm on 100+ runs with 427 item discovery and I have never seen a single one.

                        I have 3 of these on my first character ever (Pyromancer), and I've never used them. I wasn't farming for them and didn't have any weapon discovery boosts. But I haven't seen it drop on any of my other 7 or 8 characters.
