|Examine||This item degrades in combat, and will turn to dust.|
Contrary to popular belief, this item does not degrade while using non-combat magic.
The normal version requires 78 Attack and lasts for an hour of combat. After the time is up, the spear will vanish, although it can be alchemised before it turns to dust. If a player is made to lose a degrading Vesta's Spear in the Wilderness or inside the dangerous portal at clan wars, 780,000 coins will be dropped in its place.
- As an hour contains 6000 ticks and the spear hits once per 5 ticks, you are able to hit 1200 hits with this spear before it degrades. Thus, each hit costs approximately 3722.3 coins when using this spear.
When using the spear it will always use at least 1 minute's charge even if only using it for one hit.
Before the Evolution of Combat update, Vesta's spear was a very good all-rounder in melee attacks and had moderate defensive bonuses. After the Evolution of Combat, Vesta's spear now surpasses Vesta's longsword in terms of attack, causing the longsword's price to crash and the spear's to rise. As with Vesta's longsword and Statius's warhammer, they also now provide melee critical bonuses, making them one of the few weapons to do so, the others being both mainhand and offhand dragon claws, mainhand and off-hand chaotic claws, and Korasi's sword.

- Before the Evolution of Combat, this weapon used to have a special attack, Spear Wall which damaged any unit that was in a 3x3 grid of the player and provided immunity to melee attacks for 5 seconds. In terms of actual effect, this rather resembles the Hurricane ability.
- The price of Vesta's spear was around 2-3m because of its stats. The old stats of the Vesta's spear were equal in terms of stab, slash, and crush and also provided a minor defense bonus.
- Due to the aforementioned enormous buff this weapon received after the Evolution of Combat, its price has since risen massively, failing to buy in the Grand Exchange even at prices significantly higher than the guide price. It is probably due to the low volume of this item that its market price in the Grand Exchange doesn't accurately reflect its 'street price'.
