The basic D’Shar soldier, D’Shar spearmen are able to hold their ground against most foes their level and are usually at the front line of the D’Shar army. They use a variety of polearms such as awlpikes, war spears and glaives for combat and are guaranteed a shield. Their armour consists mainly of studded leather and spiked helmets. Although their choice of weapons is useful against cavalry, they have serious trouble against enemy infantry as they lack any short range weapons to counter them. Their shields are also weak and shatter from a volley of arrows or bolts. Support these men with infantry that wield close quarter combat weapons to ensure their survival and effectiveness in battles.
