I have respected every offensive stat to 50 and tried all ranged ashes of war, this one sadly deals the least damage and is slow.
Str best ranged ash is heavy infused stormblade/vacuum slice. Flame of the Redmanes with Heavy Infusion is a nice aoe Ash of War with some range.
Dex has Keen infused Beast's Roar and you can combo this with highland axe and roar medallion, it is top 2 in range with Spectral lance.
Str/Dex can use quality ashes well with heavy and keen respectively, Quality can also use theirs.
Faith/Int use spells/incantations instead. If not you have Sacred Blade and Glintstone Phalanx respectively.
Arcane only has Spectral Lance. It's almost never going to be leveled alone so likely you can use another ash of war or spells/incantations.
For some reason I went for minimal requirements for my lance 20 str, 14 dex, 10 int/fth and 99 arcane and Icy spear still does well over 1000 damage.
It's just universally good but has mediocre range
Sadly my +25 Occult Lance with Spectral Spear barely reaches 600 damage and it has damage falloff.
I personally rate this ash of war a 3/10. It has range, arcs goes towards the head and is cheap to cast but it's too slow, does too little damage, has a long recovery. No matter the build you have better damage options elsewhere.
It's a shame cause I personally like it.
