The iron lance (or iron spear) is a recurring weapon in the Dragon Quest franchise. It is a mid-level weapon that can often be used by many different characters, and is standard-issue for most castle guard NPCs.
The iron lance is a common spear made out of iron with a three-pronged head. Due to its ease of use, it can be wielded by ordinary town and castle guards and can be used by a variety of different characters and vocations. It often marks the transition from weaker weapons found early in the game to mid-level weapons. The iron lance is also the first to establish the spear weapon family, which would be expanded in later games.
The iron lance has an attack bonus of +20 and can be equipped by the Prince of Midenhall and the Prince of Cannock. It can be bought for 720 gold at Moonahan. In the NES version, the iron spear is actually the strongest weapon that the Prince of Cannock can equip.
The iron lance has an attack bonus of +26 (+28 in the NES Version) and can be equipped by the Hero, Warriors, Martial Artists, Priests, Merchants, Gadabouts, and Sages. However, when it is equipped by Martial Artists, their attack actually decreases by 14 (-13 in the GBC version).
The iron lance has an attack bonus of +23 and a style bonus of +8, though when Ruff equips it, it reduces his attack by 11. It can be equipped by the Hero, Kiefer, Ruff, Sir Mervyn, and Aishe. They can be bought for 1,000 gold and sold for 500 gold.
The iron lance has an attack bonus of +24. They can be bought for 750 gold in Port Prospect and Peregrin Quay and can also be sold for 375 gold. The Hero is the only party member who can equip it. It can be made using the alchemy recipe of Cypress stick + Dagger. It can be upgraded to the long spear by combining it with two cypress sticks in the Alchemy Pot, as well.
