Pilum

The official GemStone IV encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search

The pilum, similar to the javelin, is the lightest and fastest of the pole arm weapons and is used one-handed. The hafts of most pila are topped with an elongated spike or point which can be used to puncture or slash the target. The main trade-off for the pilum's light weight and speed is lower damage per strike.

Alternate Names

  • shield-breaker
  • shield-sunderer
