Guthan's warspear is a melee weapon that is part of Guthan the Infested's set of barrows equipment. Guthan's warspear is a two handed weapon, and requires 70 Attack to wield. This weapon has the 3rd highest melee defence stats out of all the weapons (only after the Zamorak Spear and the Maple blackjack (d) for crush defence). It is also the third most expensive spear only succeeded by Vesta's spear and the Zamorakian Spear.

Being part of Guthan's barrows set, if Guthan's warspear is wielded along with all of the other pieces of equipment in Guthan's barrows set the player receives a special effect. Successful attacks have a chance of replenishing one Hitpoint for each damage the player deals. This weapon cannot be made using the Smithing skill. Also, despite being a spear, it cannot be poisoned.

Despite Guthan's having more than average combat stats, it is mostly used by players to heal (and saves space that would have been used bringing food) and then they revert back to their regular melee armour. This method saves money and ultimately puts off having to repair the armour as regularly.

Guthan's Warspear was often an item used for scamming; it was switched for a Leaf-bladed spear at the last second. However, Leaf-bladed spears are no longer tradeable.

At one point it was the most expensive weapon in the game - it used to cost about 7M gp. However, it has been surpassed by the Saradomin Sword and all four Godswords as well as the Abyssal Whip.

Many players believe this is one of the best items in the game because its healing is ideal for any combat minigame and training, with minimum food.

This weapon can be fixed at Bob's Axes in Lumbridge for 100k when fully broken, or less depending on how much it degraded. The Tindel Merchant in Port Khazard can also fix the item for the same price. Also the Pest Control Squire near the anvil can also repair this weapon for a fee which is less than Tindel/bob.

  • If a player quickly switches weapons while attacking, they will appear to do the spear's animation with the other weapon.
  • Guthan's spear still uses a comparatively outdated attack animation. There are several other weapons which possess this characteristic.
