seriously, this spell is garbage! The casting time is almost endless and it doesnt do good damage. It has very few castings as well. The stunning effect is useless and its just a spell that no one needs, that no one with brains uses. So please write that in the arcticle and not: it can be quite effective, thats a lie.
Every spell can be effective if you have the brains to know HOW to use it.

Against LARGE enemies. And increasing your casting speed. Learn to use your brain. Git gud.
Regardless of your own personal opinion on the spell's effectiveness, OP, the part about it being potentially effective in the article is a quote from the spell's description. It absolutely belongs here.
Actually it's great, at 80 INT and staff of wisdom+5 it demolished so many bosses, countless little beads just wreck em, I bought about 6 of the tomes, takes down every boss... SOFS xbox one.

The magic shotgun.
More like soul Arrow barrage. IMO, not worth it

It's called "Soul Spear Barrage" because it deals roughly the same damage as a Soul Spear, so technically it's a splintered soul spear.
Which would have been a better name...
not a terrible spell but it seems to me that it competes for the same niche as short range defensive spells like Soul Flash and Focus Souls. can't find a situation where I'm better off using this over those other spells, rolling away to wait for an opportunity to use a different spell, or just swinging with a melee weapon.
Really misleading name. Despite there being a spell that fires multiple soul spears and there being soul spears in the spell icon, and another reason I forgot while writing this, it does not fire soul spears, and instead fires tiny projectiles. Not entirely useless, but best used in pve with someone else to draw agro as you are very vulnerable during the casting of it. Really just should've been named something else.
Ah yes, I was just looking for the spell that one-shotted my *** out of existence yesterday.
See, I was hoping I could kill Straid early on the game using those garbage full moon sickles that took me hours of farming, so I could get his swaggy armor for myself.
Oh boy, he just needed to cast it once, that guy is no joke.
I hope the spell can also be useful in the hands of actual players though, I just started another sorcerer build and I'm quite interested in it after being totally wrecked.
This spell shines in PVP. Each little projectile stuns the opponent and makes them look goofy as hell while keeping them at bay. Roll away, cast, repeat.
