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.

The iron lance is also the first to establish the spear weapon family, which would be expanded in later games.
