Dragon spear detail
Dragon spear special attack

The dragon spear's special attack, Shove.

The dragon spear is the third strongest spear in the game, after Guthan's warspear and the Zamorakian spear. It requires 60 attack to wield.

It has a special attack, Shove, which pushes an opponent back and stuns them for three seconds. The effects of this special are non-stackable, meaning that players cannot use the spear's special attack on a target who is already stunned. In addition to this, players are given 1 tick period of immunity after a stun wears off in which they cannot be stunned again.

The dragon spear is one of the few dragon items that does not require the completion of a quest to equip.

As with most dragon equipment, players cannot make this item using the Smithing skill. The only way to obtain a dragon spear is by killing brutal black dragons, or by acquiring it as a drop from monsters with access to the Rare drop table.

Like all poisonable weapons, dragon spears can be poisoned either with weapon poison or Karambwan paste. The poison can be removed by using a cleaning cloth on the poisoned spear.

One of the clues in an elite treasure trail requires the player to perform an emote with the Dragon spear.

  • The Dragon spear's special attack was changed on 28 July 2016, due to many player complaints on how overpowered it was. Prior to the fix, large Wilderness clans could use the spear's special to "stunlock" the victim. The victim would be attacked by a group players using Smite, while another group would continually spam the special attack on the victim. The victim would be unable to perform any action, since they were being stunned and the game did not register the damage. Once the stuns stopped, the player would take all the damage they received while being stunned in one large tick, which would also drain them off all of their prayer. The only way for players to escape this was by x-logging, as the game would take them out of the server after a minute passed.
