The Spear of Lugh

Weapon (spear), legendary (requires attunement)

The Spear of Lugh, one of the Four Treasures of the Tuatha Dé Danann, was brought from the island city of Gorias to Ireland. Often mistaken for the fiery lance, Areadbhar, Lugh took this spear as recompense from an enemy. It is said that Lugh’s spear is impossible to overcome and that when thrown, it will always hit its mark and return to its leather sheathe.

  • Ibar. As a bonus action, you may consume a charge and speak the command word Ibar. Your next thrown attack with the spear is guaranteed to hit a target within 120 feet. When you throw the spear in this way upgrade the damage to 1d10.
  • Athibar. As a bonus action, you may consume a charge and speak the command word Athibar. The spear then returns to your hand as long as it is within 120 feet of you.
