Hopespear (known simply as ghost in-game) is the name of an ancient goblin prophet who fought alongside the Narogoshuun tribe at the Battle of Plain of Mud in the Fourth Age. During the battle, in which all of the twelve Goblin Tribes fought, Hopespear had a vision about Bandos, his god, telling him to stop the battle, and that he would one day send a Chosen Commander to lead the goblins to victory.
Hopespear currently resides in the temple under the Plain of Mud on which the battle was fought, an invisible ghost much like those cursed by Zaros in the Second Age. He can only be seen with the ring of visibility equipped, and can only be spoken to with the aid of a ghostspeak amulet; both these requirements can be negated with the passive rewards obtained from Sliske, and the Morytania achievements respectively. He can be found in the tomb that holds the former high priests of the temple, access of which can only be attained after completing a large part of the Land of the Goblins quest. After the quest he will present the player with the Hopespear's Will miniquest if talked to.
- Hopespear's vision is referenced in the book, Bandos's Memories, which details how Bandos found him.
