Polearms vs Spears

Hi all,

I had a question I found a 5 socket Ghost Spear and I would like to make the Obedience runeword in it.

However it is says that runeword is for polearms. Now I'm wondering would that runeword work in my Ghost Spear?

Thanks :thumbsup:

Re: Polearms vs Spears

Polearms and spears are two different weapon classes, so if a runeword only mentions polearms and not spears, it won't work on a spear. So no, Obedience won't work in a ghost spear.

Ok thanks, that saves the waste of some good runes :)

So there are no spear runewords then?

Because there is no runeword stating that it would only work on a spear?! Weird!

there are a couple of runewords, that will work in spears.

you might take a look at the following link, if you can read german. this page allows you to show all runewords by sockets, item-type or by any number of runes you chose:

(i guess the link is legal here as it is the same site, that has all the nice calculators, that are mentioned all over the forum)

There are 14 different runewords you should be able to use in a spear class weapon. They all are listed as either mele weapon or just any weapon runewords and the list is:
Breath of the Dying - 6 Sockets
Call to Arms - 5 sockets
Eternity - 5 sockets
Fortitude - 4 scokets
Fury - 3 sockets
Hand of Justice - 4 sockets
Honor - 5 sockets
Malice - 3 sockets
Passion - 4 sockets
Phoenix - 4 sockets
Silence - 6 sockets
Strength - 2 sockets
Venom - 3 sockets
and Wind - 2 sockets
