Spears are one of the basic types of one-handed melee weapons in ADOM. They belong to the Polearms weapon group, and benefit from and train the corresponding weapon skill.

DesirabilityEdit

As one-handed polearms, spears are attractive weapons since the DV bonuses they gain from the Polearms class can be coupled with those from a shield for optimal DV gains. Their damage stats are also respectable, on par with scimitars. Spears of higher metals with powerful prefixes or suffixes can be very desirable indeed.

Spears can also be used as throwing weapons, having a weapon skill as such; their usefulness as throwing weapons is greatly limited, though, since large stacks of iron spears are likely to become very heavy and higher metal spears are rather rare.

Guaranteed/Common SourcesEdit

They can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot. Iron spears also get created in masses in spear traps, though these are never generated with any special prefixes or suffixes. Orcish Fighters,Paladins, and Priests start with an iron spear, as do gnomish Barbarians
