Spear was the worst weapon in game for some long time. In last days spear finally got some love. Is it worth to play with spear by now?
Spear got three new attack modifications what made it very universal weapon - It has same weapon throw as bow special, slower attack rate and it has better charged attack - Lunge.
Everyone remember times when players keep spamming charged attacks, because it was doing 3 dmg. Now with Lunge spear is the only weapon what deal more damage with charged attack than normal, but it's only doing 2 damage per hit. It also does you travel faster if you keep doing lunge - same mechanics as long time ago, when all weapons got it.
The second new thing is its' throw. It's now little slower than fiery arrow but it's almost the same - but damage is higher. It's a dream for players who fight like they try to make enemy have 3 hp or less, and then they throw their weapon, but it's too slow flying so they hardly ever hit enemy. With spear they can be sure they will hit enemies with throwing it, because it's flying faster and piercing, so there's only one rescue for people - kick it to reverse it.
The third new thing is slower attack rate. Before update it was almost same attack rate as claws - but it was dealing same damage as claws, so it was worse. The good thing combined with attack rate was just shield and attack - now with less attack rate weapon got really nerfed.
I will do that question again: Is the spear worth to play with it by now?
Weapon got buff, but it has now problem with attack rate - you need to be skilled in fighting with spear to make it your own bones factory. But spear got this nice buffs so people should forget about previous spear and start again with new spear - it's really worth to play with it.
Wow, you really read all of this?
