Spear of returning ( / )
Item Type Missile
Artifact? No
Weight 40s
Danger Level 8
Material Iron

Spear of returning is a type of missile, which can be thrown without requiring a missile weapon. They may return when thrown, thus negating the need for reloading.


Due to their weight and limited range, these are not too interesting by themselves. However, using them allows the PC to gain marks in the 'Thrown Spears' weapon skill, which can be put to good use once the Rune-covered trident is obtained.
