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 want to use it at lower levels.

      if you messed up your world tendency by dying in 5-2 and you havent fought dirty colossus yet, you can go to pure black and kill black phantom selen and the primeval demon without going to the nexus (dying is fine and so is save/quitting, just don't warp from the archstone until you killed both.) selen is really hard so start with her in case you run out of grass and ruin it by having to warp out. now kill the butcher knife phantom, colossus, and maiden astrea and you should be in pure white

        its a perfectly fun and viable weapon to beat the game with. people will just call anything bad if you can't apply curse weapon to it and insta kill everything in the game.

          Man, my world is Pure White (even defeated Black Phantom Garl Vinland), but damn ladder to the Spear doesn't appear. Do you know If there's a fix to this?

            For a weapon of GOD it is junk... for a weapon in general it is junk...
            And for a weapon where you have to have PWWT it is junk. Come on please remake this game again and give us a REAL reward for items like this.... purely disappointing much like other weapons and armor. That you have to "jump through hoops for".

              2:45 in the video before it even got to talking about the location of the ****ing spear. Find a better one.

                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 (:
