    Spear is for gods that can land abilities on enemies fast(aka DoT ability gods, or change with her spam). Shard is for gods that rely on burst damage (Agni, Janus, etc). The penetration relays on how much prot the enemy has, if they have more prot then go shard, if they have less then go for spear, spear is more for kill potential, while shard is push potential.
    If at first you don't succeed, Try again later, then destroy the evidence that it was you who tried.

    In game away from the forums I'm a healer main, this happened after support maining in season 1-2. Now I play adc, solo, support and jungle in conquest, but I'm still Forever a Healer.

    The only Mage who can't apply 2 Spear stacks before their main damage source is Scylla, and her in-built protection reduction devalues Obsidian Shard anyway. In this meta no one is building enough magical protection for Obsidian Shard to be better than Spear of the Magus on anyone.

    its still not bad to build it on Chronos or Sol tho becuz they can shred towers with it

    Does the +33% penetration of the shard works with Vulcain Canon or only the direct penetration ? (like +10, +15...)

    It works. It just doesn't activate spears passive

    Spear is more viable than shard in 90% of the time even on burst mages that doesn't benefit directly from dots for example, because flat pen is still the most universal pen in a game, the % part is just the icing on a cake.

    Even in tank meta, as a mage you ideally DON'T want to blow your abilities on tanky characters such as warriors or guardians, if you do, you're doing smth very wrong, your job is to erase the other 3 squishy classes in a game, which is why spear is so efficient, granted you build pen boots, it allows you to deal near true damage to assasins, hunters, and other mages.

    i heard that spear is for mages that can use an ability under an ability. like for instance KKK. he can 3 and then ult. if youa re expecting a burst damage from a single ability then obsidian.
    Signatures are good things.

    Shard comes out on top if your target has 262.5 (game will round it up to 263) or more protections
