Tridents are a rare type of two-handed melee weapons in ADOM. They belong to the Polearms weapon group, and benefit from and train the corresponding weapon skill.


Tridents are roughly comparable with the three common types of two-handed polearms (halberds, scythes and long spears) boasting the highest ranged damage among them (unfortunately, this feature is usually of no consequence to a typical character).

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

They can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot.

A barbed trident of hunting can be found in the Bug Temple.
