Lightning Spear is a miracle in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

A miracle that launches a spear of lightning. Said to be the legacy of an ancient clan whose leader was revered as the God of Sun.
The name of the clan has been lost to time, but the gross incandescence of our magnificent father shall never wane.


General information[]

Lightning Spear has a somewhat lengthy casting time and does not home in on targets the way Soul Spears do. It does, however, have a small AoE and will deal a small percentage of damage (10-15%) to nearby enemies. When cast at an enemy standing in water, Lightning Spear will do extra damage and have a noticeably larger AoE.

Attunement milestones[]

Like all other spells, the amount of casts per slot increases upon reaching certain Attunement milestones:

Attunement Level Amount of Casts
10 3
26 4
38 5
43 7
49 9
