      "Ornstein reappeared as The Old Dragonslayer in DS2." uhh not outright confirmed anywhere within game or otherwise as far as I know.

        I don't care if the demon spear might deal a bit more damage, this thing still kicks ass and looks amazing while doing it.

        Also it was a very fitting weapon to finally kill the hellkite dragon with.

            I just found out that this spear has more deflection resistance than other spears. For example, you can hit a medium shield while one-handing the spear and it won't bounce off like other spears. This means that two-handing this spear will allow you to poke at greatshields for free.

              For anyone curious about this weapon on a faith build, with minimum str/dex to 2h the spear.

              16 strength
              24 dexterity
              48 faith

              Spear does 142 + 112 in physical
              Plus 97 + 84 in lightning damage
              For a total of 436

              I'm not super impressed with the damage but it might be a decent second weapon for enemies that are resistant to magic. It has long reach so 2 handing it isn't too difficult.

              Any weapon with sunlight blade will probably outdamage it by a ton, but since there's only one cast of sunlight blade it's not bad for areas like the Duke's archives

                The page says requirements and bonuses, but it doesnt even have the stat bonuses? Is this because im on mobile or does the page need updating?

                  is not effective against dragons at all. does way way way way less damage to dragon types than any other standard weapon. a fully upgraded standard weapon did over 200 damage on this one dragon, and a fully upgraded dragonslayer spear did 64 or something...waaat? it is both lightning (said to be effective against dragons) and it has "Dragon Slayer" in its name...the description even says that it is effective against dragons...is this massive trolling on the devs side? Lightning seriously seems to do diddly squat against dragons.

                    This weapon is basically a bonus for dex faith builds who levelled their strength to use a Murakumo. So yeah, pretty niche.

                      The lightning spear in Sen's can be un-infused to make the required +10 thrusting weapon needed to make the DSS. No need to upgrade a weapon for it.

                        Orstein IS named after Leo Ornstein?!?! No fking way! Every time I heard the name "Ornstein", I'd think of Leo Ornstein. That's SO cool that he's named after one of the great pianist-composers of the 21st century.

                          Anyone know how the faith scaling works in this weapon? Does it boost the lightning damage? It doesn’t have magic damage for Faith scaling to boost, so does it go into the lightning?
