    Stupid question about a polearm vs a spear for runewords.

    I have an etheral 4OS ghost spear, with about 246 max damage, which would be great for "Pride" for my merc.

    Question I have is, won't work in a spear, just polearms right?

    you are right.

    spears and polearms are different. most of the new runewords only work in polearms.

    Correct, these are two distinct weapon classes. It's just like if you tried to make an Enigma into a 3-Sockets helm, and wonder why it doesn't work :lol: !

    I know that this is not a trade forum, but if anybody is interested by a very nice Eth war pike socketed with Hel Ko Thul Eth Fal :rolleyes: please let me know...

    Guess whether a war pike is a spear or a polearm ! :lol:
