Anything with a bleed buildup. I pull out a gold tracer on my hornet ring/rapier build when I see someone blocking too much.
Or a Shotel but wheres the swag in that?

Halberd.

It's just as long as spears and has higher poise break then spears.


lol

Predict and rollbs

Outpoke with katana instadash, roll towards them as they roll away and catch them with a rolling attack (needs prediction too and dwgr doesnt hurt either)

Estoc turtle

Grab a bow and poison arrows and annoy them from afar

Thats about where the list ends of how you can deal with good spear users

You can also use a whip. I think it actually takes a lot of expertise to be a great spear wielder, the kind you want to complain about. Damage is abysmal.

Kick them off a ledge.

If there's no ledge, just keep kicking them til they die from it.

Outpoke with katana instadash


How does that work? I've been seeing it a lot lately, but I can't figure it out, youtube doesn't really help either...

It depends on the spear user. If it's some mindless spammer I'll just parry. If all they do is flip>poke>flip>poke keeping to their range I will either jump off a cliff or pull out a demon spear if I'm feeling up for a tedious, boring, and drawn out fight.

did you really just suggest a katana vs. a spear?

He's right. Instadash running R1 with kats is good enough to deal with spears.

If you're using a strength build, you can pull out your highest AR weapon, poise up a bit, and just trade hits with them.

You'll always out damage them assuming you have a dedicated build.

It's not the best counter, but its an option.

The best counter to a spear user is just patience. If you need to turtle their spear strikes all day, then so be it. If you can make them bored, they'll start taking risks. Lame it out.
