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.

Desirability[edit source]

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

Guaranteed/Common sources[edit source]

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

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