The Watcher's Guide is an uncommon special variant of the Spears family of weapons. It is a simple melee weapon that can be wielded in one hand, or with both hands for extra damage. Its design lends itself well to be thrown at enemies as a projectile. Its design doesn't lend itself to be dual-wielded, even by those with special training in dual-wielding.

Time has dampened this spear's sheen, but the centre glows a faint blue. The magic it exudes feels old, terrible... and divine. The spear was given to its previous owner for his unerring loyalty - even after death.

Where to Find

Found in a trapped sarcophagus in the Dank Crypt (X:-293, Y:-323).
