Augmented Masterwork Spear of Annihilation detail.png

Augmented Masterwork Spear of Annihilation is the augmented version of the Masterwork Spear of Annihilation.

The Augmented Masterwork Spear of Annihilation uses charges stored in the universal charge pack. When the charge pack runs out of charges, the item loses stats and gizmo effects, and can also no longer gain any equipment experience. Function will resume when the pack is recharged with divine charges.

Combat stats[edit | edit source]

Passive effect[edit | edit source]

With the spear equipped, melee damage over time abilities (bleeds) have their duration extended by 50%, rounded down to the nearest whole number. Bleeds that may be used with a two-handed weapon are Blood Tendrils.png: RS3 Inventory image of Blood TendrilsBlood Tendrils, Dismember.png: RS3 Inventory image of DismemberDismember and Slaughter.png: RS3 Inventory image of SlaughterSlaughter, all of which normally deal five hits. With ability stalling, the Masterwork Spear of Annihilation can also release an extended Massacre.png: RS3 Inventory image of MassacreMassacre, a dual wield ability. This means that when these abilities are used with the spear, they will deal damage seven times.

When combined with the Strength Cape perk, Dismember will deal an additional three hits, for a total of ten. If used with an Ek-ZekKil-infused Essence of Finality amulet, its Igneous Cleave special will hit an additional three times, for a total of 9 hits and up to 14 when extended with five bleeding abilities.

The extended bleeds synergise well with the Champion's ring and Gloves of passage (and the enhanced variant); the ring is intended to work with bleeds to force critical hits, while the gloves increase the damage dealt from bleeds by 20% for ten seconds after successfully hitting a target with Smash or Havoc.

Greater Barge doesn't turn Assault, Destroy, Greater Flurry, Flurry, and Fury into actual bleed abilities, as the damage over time hits are still affected by precise and equilibrium perks, Berserk, etc. As such, they are not actually bleed abilities, and therefore the spear will not extend the effects of any ability applied with Greater Barge's effect.

Additionally, this passive effect also works with the Attacker's insignia which increases its bleed hit splats from four to six in total.
