|A rune-tipped, one-handed hasta.|
The rune hasta is a one handed melee weapon, similar to the spear. It is members only and can only be used in combat. 40 Attack and Barbarian Training in smithing are required to wield this weapon. Although hastae offer negative defensive bonuses, the fact that they can be used with a shield provides more defence than a normal spear. To obtain a rune hasta the player can either create one using the Smithing skill or trade with another player or by killing Brutal Black Dragons. The rune hasta can be poisoned.
- 40 Attack
To create a rune hasta, the player needs to have completed training with Otto Godblessed, have at least 90 Smithing, some magic logs, a rune bar, and a hammer in their inventory. The player then needs to use the bar on a barbarian anvil to make the rune hasta. There are only two locations of barbarian anvils, one being in the Barbarian Village west of Varrock and one in Otto's home. This will grant the player 150 Smithing experience.
