Istarelle is a Spear Weapon in Demon's Souls and Demon's Souls Remake. Spears are capable of inflicting narrow attacks, dealing heavy damage from mid-range. They work best against enemies wearing armor made of metal and hard scales but can easily be parried by enemies and struggle at breaking an enemy's guard. Players can equip the Spear along with a Shield to have a balance between defense and attack.


A short spear of hard oak. It is covered with engravings and is one of the few Revelations from God.Once belonged to the Holy Knight Lizaia. Its holiness increases the wielder's resistance to plague and poison.

Istarelle Notes and Tips

  • Pure White World Tendency required in the Valley Of Defilement
  • Can be upgraded using a Colorless Demon's Soul
  • Increases Poison and Plague resistance
  • You don't need to meet the Strength or Dexterity requirements to get full Magic Damage if you have 24 Faith. Since Physical Damage with the Weapon is low, this is not a bad option if you wan to use it at lower levels.

      gotta be honest i prefer the old design. it looked a lot more rotten and fitted better with the rest of the area, although that is probably nostalgia talking as demon's souls was my first forrey into the soulsborne games.

          for anyone who wants to use this, note that you do NOT need to meet the dex requirement! it does mainly magic dmg and the scaling from dex is negligable. this is a great alternative for the greatsword of moonlight (:
