Yorshka's Spear is a spear in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

This treasure, gifted to the Yorshka Church, is enchanted with a soporific spell, and was surreptitiously worshiped by Irithyll slaves.
As a weapon, it is part spear and part hammer, the former allowing thrusting, and the latter allowing strikes.
Skill: Pacify
With a prayer and an offering of this spear, temporarily wear down enemy FP with each strike.

Availability[]

Found in Irithyll of the Boreal Valley, in the darkened room located shortly past the graveyard behind the Church of Yorshka. Climb the ladder on the far-right and walk along the rafters until reaching the other end of the room. Drop down to an elevated platform with a chest that contains the weapon.

Characteristics[]

An unassuming weapon, Yorshka's Spear can be a powerful tool in the right hands.

It is one of three spears that possesses sweeping attacks, the other two being the Partizan and Ringed Knight Spear. This gives it wide horizontal coverage that also has the bonus of inflicting Strike damage, which the vast majority of armor sets resist very poorly. The different timings on its strong attacks gives it versatility, making it hard to predict and dodge in PvP. It also has very high elemental absorption when used to block, though low stability restricts this tactic to being used to reduce the damage dealt by incoming spells.

As it scales with three stats, it can be difficult to build this weapon to inflict optimal damage at lower levels, and as such it generally performs best when Strength and Dexterity are prioritized over Faith. As well, unlike the other sweeping spears, its skill does not grant Hyper Armor, which further hampers its ability to threaten opponents.

What makes Yorshka's Spear so exceptional is that its skill, Pacify, grants it the ability to deplete the Focus Points of any target struck by the weapon. Combined with its ability to mix up attacks, strike from a distance and harass with running attacks, this allows it to threaten an opponent's ability to cast spells or perform weapon arts, something that no other weapon can do.
