Piercing Spear is a Templar passive skill in the Aedric Spear skill line in The Elder Scrolls Online.
- Increases Critical Strike chance by 5%. Increases damage vs. Blocking targets by 5%.
- Unlocks when the Vestige reaches rank 8 in the Aedric Spear skill line.
- Requires 1 skill point.
- Update 2: From Update 2 onwards, this passive now adds a melee critical strike in addition to a spell critical strike when using spear abilities.
- Update 6: This passive now provides increased critical damage when a spear ability is slotted, instead of increased critical hit.
- Update 8: Fixed an issue where several abilities, including this one, that increased critical damage were not increasing the damage as much as stated in the tooltip.
