Spears are fast-speed two-handed stabbing weapons used in melee combat. They are obtained from either monster drops, purchasing from players, or smithing on the special anvil south of the Barbarian Outpost or Barbarian Village. Most spears can be poisoned with normal weapon poisons or karambwan paste.

Although they can only be used to train controlled and defensive attacks, spears are still arguably the most flexible weapons in the game, as they are the only weapon besides the Hasta to use Stab, Crush, and Slash attack styles, and their speed gives them damage per second close to that of scimitars. However, spears are rarely used as they do not excel in any particular style and other two-handed weapons, such as the two-handed sword and the halberd have higher attack bonuses despite being much slower. Its flexibility can be useful for saving inventory space during the Spirits of the Elid quest which requires that all three melee attack types be used.

Each attack style of the spear, except for Defensive, is Controlled and gives shared melee experience (Attack, Strength, and Defence). All styles also give Hitpoints experience.

All spears have an attack speed of 4 game ticks, except the Leaf-bladed spear and Guthan's warspear which have a speed of 5, and the Bone spear, which has a speed of 6. This makes the spear the fastest two-handed weapon type in the game, tied with claws.

Creation[edit | edit source]

The ability to smith a spear requires completion of the Barbarian Smithing section of the Barbarian Training as well as completion of the Tai Bwo Wannai Trio quest and level 5 Smithing.
