          The video is for the lightning spear weapon while the rest of the article is for the lightning spear miracle.

            God this thing just trivializes so many enemies, I love it. It may take a while but the fact that you can walk for so long while casting and damage makes it such a treat, at least in PVE. PVP I might not think so much.

              I can't tell if the number of people confusing this with the lightning-ENCHANTED Spear in Sen's Fortress is a joke.

                So did anyone else know that the crown of dusk actually helps lightning spears? I’ve checked and it’s boosting my damage

                  Do lightning miracles count as the Divine effect, I'm looking to end the bonewheels in the catacombs before pinwheel to get items and kill the black knight

                    The mimic in Sen's does not drop the miracle, "Lightning Spear". It drops the a spear weapon that is enchanted with lightning.

                      100% sure that it's an actual weapon, a lightning-enchanted spear, that drops from the mimic at sen's, not this spell
