Spears use and train the speardwarf skill. Dwarves can forge spears out of any weapon-grade metal but those with superior edge properties are more effective. For purposes of building a realistic danger room a less lethal wooden spears may be used if purchased from elves first. All dwarves can equip spears, but some must use two hands.
 Forging and Melting
- Metal spears cost one metal bar to forge, or three adamantine wafers.
- When a non-adamantine metal spear is melted down, it will return 0.9 metal bars, for an efficiency of 90%.
- When an adamantine spear is melted down, it will produce 0.9 wafers, for an efficiency of 30%
