short spear: best weapon in 3.0?


WotC's bitch

Yep, the spear looks quite a bit better. :)

It's two-handed, tho. Martial weapons have similar stats without that restriction.

Well, it really just means you always get the 1.5x Str damage, without having to say it....

Alternatives to the Short Spear presented in this thread:

Greatsword and Longbow: sure, that's a good combo, but I'm talking one weapon here...frankly, I think Longsword and Longbow is another good fact, if you're playing a Ranger, why not carry a longsword in one and and a shortspear in the other, you're ready for melee OR ranged attack dealing 1-8 damage...

Morningstar: might be the most underrated melee weapon for Rogues in 3.0

Club: actually a viable alternative since it can be used as a shortrange missile weapon...still if yr going to use a 1-6 weapon why not:

Halfspear, which has I think all the advantages of the Shortspear, except you can use it one-handed in melee

point taken on usefulness for low level characters
