Cool concept. A spear that becomes a twinblade / halberd hybrid is really unique. It's also great for getting the ring that requires you to beat the game without sitting at a bonfire (Illusory Ring of the Exalted) because it has infinite durability and isn't dependent on leveling for its damage.
Funnily enough, while Raw will get you 385 right off the bat with a +5 Santier's Spear, as long as you have int around the 90s, you can actually beat the raw infusion with the enchanted infusion. I have 95 int (2 points of which comes from the black hood) and I get 422 damage out of the spear (350+72) and if I use the raw, I get 420 (385+35). By no means should anyone have int this high, but just known that I am level 217 with only 6 vigor, that's how much of a mage I am.
can anyone tell me why there is 2 pages for this https://darksouls2.wiki.fextralife.com/Santier's+Spear and https://darksouls2.wiki.fextralife.com/Santiers+Spear the its all the same but the comments are different
