Effect N/A

The Iron lance is a recurring weapon in the Dragon Quest series. It is a mid-level weapon that can often be used by many different characters, and is standard-issue for most castle guard NPCs.

Characteristics

The Iron lance is a common spear made out of iron with a three-pronged head. Due to its ease of use, it can be wielded by ordinary town and castle guards and can be used by a variety of different characters and vocations. It often marks the transition from weaker weapons found early in the game to mid-level weapons. The iron lance is also the first to establish the spear weapon family, which would be expanded in later games.
