Rune spear detail

The rune spear is a two-handed melee weapon and is the fifth strongest spear in Old School RuneScape. Unlike most other rune equipment, rune spears are Members-only. Rune spears are obtained by either purchasing one from another player, received as a monster drop, or smithed with 90 Smithing (requires one runite bar and one magic log, as well as partial completion of Barbarian Training). Like most spears, the rune spear can be poisoned.

A rune spear is also a requirement for a hard clue scroll. Ironmen can acquire it by completing Tai Bwo Wannai Trio for a rune spear (kp) after using a cleaning cloth on it.

This item is the third rarest drop from the rare drop table. Wearing a ring of wealth will increase the chances of receiving one from the RDT.
