Orcish spears are one of the basic types of Weapon in ADOM. They have default stats of (+1, 1d8+2), though these do vary from time to time. Unidentified, one appears as a "crude spear".


Despite their unglamourous appearance, these are extremely popular weapons in the early game, simply because they are more powerful than the regular spear, can be easily obtained, and Polearms are considered the best defensive weapon class bar none, as spears can be worn with Shields.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

They can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot. Orc scorchers and hill orcs each carry an orcish spear that they can throw at the PC, so if you are willing to wait for them to throw it you are guaranteed one.
