The iron hasta is a one-handed melee weapon, similar to the spear. To wield this weapon, players need to have completed Barbarian Training in Smithing. Although hastae offer negative defensive bonuses, the fact that they can be used with a shield or defender provides more defence than a normal spear. To obtain an iron hasta the player can either create one using the Smithing skill or trade with another player. It can be poisoned.
