    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:

    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:

    http://diablo2.ingame.de//spiel/expansion/itemdb/runeword_index.php?type=Speer

    (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
