Short spears are one of the basic types of Weapon in ADOM. They have default stats of (+1, 1d6), though these do vary from time to time.


Regular spears or even orcish spears are quite common, and usually better than any short spear. This leaves few scenarios in which you will choose this item, unless it happens to have magical properties.
