One-handed pike attacks are extremely slow. However, if you hold L1 with the torch on the offhand, pike R1s become godly fast... even faster than the regular spear.

Oh my god thank you for posting this. I am going to destroy with this. In other words, thrust but hole.
Praise the Torch!
The torch should help you against frost too. Why didn't From think of this?
Useful for stopping maggots and killing flesh blobs, not much else though, other than adding realism or for making meme builds.
Torch run only, god help my souls
