In-Game Description

Primal account of Lightning Spear, which tells of an ancestral dragonslayer.
Hurls a giant lightning spear.
Gwyn, the First Lord, slew dragons with his sunlight spear, a tradition upheld by his firstborn and the greatspear he wielded. Much of this resplendent tale of father and son, while epic, remains tragically untold.


Obtained as a reward for reaching Rank 2 in the Warrior of Sunlight covenant. To achieve this, the player must offer 30 Sunlight Medals to the Sunlight Altar in Lothric Castle.


Conjures a large spear made of Lightning, then hurls it at the target. The projectile inflicts 1.85 times the Spell Buff of the catalyst as Lightning damage.

When cast at extremely close range, the spear will inflict an additional 1.45 times the Spell Buff of the catalyst as Lightning damage. A successful point-blank cast will also result in vibration feedback through the player's controller, providing confirmation of inflicting additional damage.
