Hastae are one-handed melee weapons that are similar to spears with slightly lower stats. Hastae can be obtained either by trading with another player or using the Smithing skill. All hastae (except the Zamorakian and gilded hasta) can be poisoned with either normal weapon poisons or karambwan paste. They can only be wielded and created by those who have completed the Smithing portion of Otto Godblessed's Barbarian Training.

Due to their one handed aspect and design hastae are similar to, but should not be confused with, the mjolnirs.

Hastae are similar to spears, except that they are one-handed, allowing for use of a shield or defender for extra bonuses. This helps cover the negative defence bonuses they give upon wielding; the exception is the Zamorakian hasta, which still retains the defensive bonuses that its spear variant has.
