Torch Spear is one of the Spears in Nioh 2. Spears scale primarily off of the Constitution Stat, but also scale off of Strength and Skill, so if your Build has high Constitution, consider using this Weapon type.
Torch Spear Description
A prized greatspear of Yazawa Yoritsuna, a Sanada clan retainer and younger brother of Sanada Yukimura's grandfather. During Yoritsuna's time at Numata Castle in Shinano Province (present-day Nagano prefecture), a demon god said to live on Mount Kokuzo laid waste to the castle town. Yoritsuna vowed to slay the demon god, but before confronting it, he ventured to Hachiman Shrine in Minochi to pray for a successful battle. It is believed that it was at this shrine where Yoritsuna was presented with this mysterious spear, known as Kotaimatsu in Japanese. Legend has it that wielding the spear in darkness will cause it to illuminate like a torch and at times emit a dazzling flash that blinds the wielder's enemies.
