Guthan's warspear detail

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 cannot be made using the Smithing skill.

If Guthan's warspear is wielded and other pieces of equipment of the barrows set are worn simultaneously, the player receives the set effect: successful attacks have a chance of replenishing one Life point for each damage the player deals.

Many players believe this is one of the most useful weapons in the game because its healing is ideal for any combat minigames and training, with minimum food. Despite Guthan's armour having more than average combat stats and the spear being a very feasible weapon, 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.

  • Guthan's warspear is only tradeable when undamaged or fully broken.
  • If you drop this item or place it on a table, it will degrade to "0".

Barrows equipment degrades as it is used. Equipment received from the Barrows minigame is fully repaired and can be used for 15 hours of combat until it degrades completely and requires repair before it can be used again. Barrows armour degrades even if the player is using protection prayers or not taking damage. Like the Crystal ward and crystal bow, Barrows equipment does not suffer in performance as it degrades from fully repaired to fully degraded. Fully repaired Barrows items start out with no numbers in their names, e.g. Guthan's warspear. It will become Guthan's warspear 100 the first time it's used in combat. Eventually it will degrade to Guthan's warspear 75, then 50, then 25 and finally 0 at which point the armour will be unusable until repaired. Additionally, Barrows equipment may only be traded if fully repaired or fully degraded.

When dropped or lost on death (even when placed under a gravestone), any piece of Barrows equipment will automatically degrade to 0. Players who attempt to drop Barrows equipment will receive a warning message about this.

There are two ways to repair Barrows armour. Players can talk to any of the NPCs listed below and they will repair the items for a price, or repair the pieces themselves using an armour stand in any player-owned house. The equipment can be repaired at any stage, and the cost will be adjusted according to how much it has degraded. The repair costs below are as if the equipment has fully degraded.

The following NPCs can repair the armour:

Costs to repair
barrows equipment
NPC POH Armour Stand
Level 1 Smithing Level 99 Smithing
Helm 180,000 179,100 90,900
Body 270,000 268,650 136,350
Legs 240,000 238,800 121,200
Weapon 300,000 298,500 151,500
Total 990,000 985,050 499,950
The price is exactly 50% when operating a Smithing cape.
