I'm currently figuring out the Grand Lance as well.

So far the best combo that still leaves you with stamina is a light R1 thrust, and ONLY if it connects, follow-up with the heavy R2 drill. From R1 to R2 there is no pause, however R2 drains a ton of stamina but it catches dudes in a stunlock easily.

Also, the backstep charge attack would demolish anyone in your way.

When hit like the lance, it's very satisfying to use.

S scaling in dex, and B scaling in strength, 400 base damage at +5, and swings fast. If you look at it along with stamina cost, it is beastly damage no matter which way you slice it, plus it has special moves too (which are pretty good pvp) I agree the moveset is not great though.

Play around with it a little with various enemy types, give it some time to find the right rhythm.

If you really can't get used to the greatcurved swords style then don't use it.

EDIT:

Oh my god, did they buff the final boss? Or did I suddenly became retarded? Her HP is a ton now and she hits like a truck

The original Super Best Friends Dark Souls 2 versus videos were quite well received as it perfectly displayed how two people can have dramatically different experience playing the game With Pat and Woolie being the triumphant duo.

Update: I'm now roughly 1/3 along to way to be getting my Black Dragon Armor... 13 more scales to go. I wouldn't bother with the Black Dragon Greatsword. The Grand Lance is awesome when you do the running attack... You become the drill that pierces the Heavens!

I gots me a shiny new ashen mist heart. Yay...the weird rock at Tseldora came to mind, so that part was over quickly, but the whole giant mess was a bit more...well, messy! Took me a while to find the first one (went through his memories quickly though) but the second one was a bit challenging.

After getting kicked out twice, I decided to switch from safe sniping to very unsafe magical destruction! Soul vortex/geyser and flame swathe got me till the last giant, at which point I chickened out and killed that one with the bow :P Got the second (third?) giant soul just as the ash had started to thin....

The Black Dragon Armor set is awesome. I just started playing DSII but it's totally the armor I'm going for.

Mainly because it reminds me of the Garo armor

I've pretty much given up on the auros set, and decided to get the black dragon armor as well. while doing some pvp I came against someone using a grand lance who hit me with the running R2 attack a couple of times which meant I died lol. so I may test it out more when I get a chance. I'm getting ready to move soon and won't be able to take my xbox with me right away which means no gaming for a while

Actually fought someone with the dragon curved sword who managed to get me as well. I've been using the murakumo for a while, and I quite like it, the dragon curved sword is so much shorter than it though. but I'll probably make the leap and upgrade it as well. I'm currently at the end of the game where I pretty much have nothing to do but beat the final boss, so when I do get to play I'm kind of just doing random things while I can still enjoy the benefits of NG.

P.S.

Darklurker is a PITA when you don't have any spells. took me a few attempts to beat him with my melee only character, and probably only won because for some reason he didn't split into 2 when I had him half way dead.

I got all of the memories after the super-annoying fire volley dodge that I had to do to reach the Giant Lord...and DAYUM! Bosses just skipped 3 levels of difficulty or something!!!

Ancient Dragon: can't take my damage but hits like a damn truck with that cheapshot fire breath.

Vendrick: easy to read but 1HKO if he sweeps me...and he does a frikken triple sweep -___- His maxed out defenses don't help. AT ALL. Gave up on killing him.

Nashandra: accidentally found this boss while looking for the ghost guy who sells magic arrows...but hey, double summon + spell spam = ez win. I later realized that this was the game's final boss. Oops.

So now, I have to kinda kill the other bosses before moving on to the "second trip to Drangleic", but I'll probably take a break for now. It was fun, LV159 in 58 hours or something.

the bosses look epic, even the gank squad. i feel like people complain so much about gank squads so its great they added a boss specifically to teach you how to sdeal with that. as far as the other two bosses go, pure epic, now THAT was the dragon fight i was looking for! and that rascal elana, summoning velstadt during the boss battle? can't wait to start, might even start straight from NG+, just to be a true souls masochist.

So what did you guys think? I loved it, tougher bosses, tougher baddies, and tougher terrain. Not to mention they FINALLY have bosses and enemies that are resistant to lightning so faith builds can't just roflpwn. Don't know about the weapons, dark wrathful axe seems cool, but in the end is severely outdamaged by the mastodon halberd, not sure about the moveset. Same with yorghs spear, for a weapon in that weight class, it only has an AR of 500 or so max which isn't too impressive.

Okay... now that Old Iron King is out I finally manange to beat the Dragon Boss from Sunken.

Seems the patch did something to nerf the Toxic Dragon fight... he normaly would kill me with one leg swipe, now he just took 3/4 of my HP bar with it, wich made the fight a lot more forgiving and enabled me to defeat him.

Oh well.. i got the crown and will take on the Iron next... or maybe finaly go to dragon shrine and fight my way through that (yeah... i still have not complete the main game )

I haven't played Dark Souls 2 in a while does anyone knows if the nerf to Lighting Spear was fixed? If not than can someone tell me what would be better for a pyromancy upgrade either upgrade the flame or raise my stats to the soft cap?

Nope... which is the reason why my faith/str build is growing a lot more in str recently, I pretty much stopped using offensive miracles and only use str/lightning weapons now...

Sadly I don't have any experience with pyromancy, so i'm sorry that I can only answer one of your questions.
