Appearances[edit | edit source]
A lance reportedly held by the god of war.
Gungnir is a rare steal and rare drop from Odin in the 3D remakes. It has an Attack of 140 and is among the best weapons. The Dragoon and Onion Knight can wield it, and it provides a bonus of 10 to Strength and Agility.
Legendary spear said to have been a favorite of the gods.
Gungnir (Hero's Spear in the Easy Type version) boasts an Attack of 99 and Accuracy of 30, as well as granting +15 to Stamina. Kain is equipped with it when he joins the party after the Battle of the Giant of Babil. This weapon is metallic.
In the 3D versions, it has an attack power of 99 with an accuracy of 90 with the same properties as the 2D versions. Kain can equip this spear.
Legendary lance of the gods.
The Gungnir is Mog's exclusive weapon acquired in the Dragons' Den by defeating the Neslug (only in the Advance, mobile and PC versions). Another way to get one is to bet the Longinus in the Dragon's Neck Coliseum. Gungnir has an attack power of 240, +7 Stamina and Magic, and enables the Runic command, but does not grant Jump bonuses.
The Gungnir is the Relic Weapon polearm for the Dragoon job, available to level 75+ Dragoons after completing a lengthy and expensive quest (usually taking tens of millions of gil). Through subsequent quests, its stats can be increased to Item Level 119.
While it is one of the best polearms for Dragoon, it is weaker than other two-handed melee job Relic Weapons. This is due primarily to the hidden effect created by using its unique Weaponskill, Gierskogul, which causes its user to gain a potent Shock Spikes effect.
This weapon is not the spear used by the form of Odin faced in the difficult Einherjar endgame instanced event, as both the event and Odin himself were introduced three years after the Relic Weapons were created. Though what he clearly wields is a much larger, more impressive polearm than the Relic Weapon, Odin refers to it in-combat as his "...obsidian blade..." before unleashing his trademark Zantetsuken annihilation move unto players, referring to the sword of the same name. A high-level version of the avatar fight drops this weapon, which is named Geirrothr.
In the original version Gungnir can be bought from Lohen's shop in Dalmasca Westersand after the events of Giruvegan for 17,000 gil, made in the bazaar by selling Mystletainn x2, Ketu Board x2 and Broken Spear x2, and costs 15,300 gil. It can drop from Bune (rare) in the Pharos and Subterra. Gungnir can be equipped by characters who have obtained the Spears 5 license on the License Board for 40 LP. It does Fire-elemental damage and has Attack power of 84.
In the Zodiac versions, it now provides 95 Attack, 8 Evade, 28 Ct, 4% combo rate, is Fire-elemental, and has a 10% chance of causing Disable on a target and requires the Spears 5 license for 40 LP. It can be found as a treasure in the Pharos - First Ascent (Wellspring Ravel - 3rd Flight), dropped by Bune (3% chance), or from the bazaar for 9,025 gil by selling Ketu Board x2, Broken Spear x2, and Mystletainn x2. Gungnir can be wielded by Uhlan.
Forked lance that dances with flame.
Llyud's strongest weapon, the Gungnir, is a Fire-elemental weapon acquired after completing Mission 79: Wings of Midnight. It provides +100 Attack, +50 Magick, and +40 Speed, as well as giving the additional effect of Spread Damage. It uses a generic spear sprite during battle.
Touched by the hand of the god of war himself, this once enchanted weapon cuts down foes with merciless vengeance.
The Gungnir is a second tier spear for Fang acquired after using Scarletite on a maxed out Gae Bolg. It has an improved Counter rate, and a Positive Effect synthesized ability that extends the duration of buffs. Gungnir starts at level 17, and maxes out at level 41 with maximum Attack and Magic powers of 230 and 220 respectively. At max level it dismantle into Gargantuan Claw (x12), Thickened Hide (x3), and a Gae Bolg.

Gungnir is one of the greatest spears and can only be equipped by the Lilty race. It can be forged for 5,000 gil with the Legendary Weapon Scroll, Alloy, Orichalcum, and an Ancient Potion. Its Focus Attack is Cross Slash.
A sacred weapon with a raven spearhead. Used in the battle of the gods.
The Gungnir is the second strongest spear in terms of attack, and can be used by all races. It provides 133 attack at level 1 and 180 attack at level 30, gives +25 to Stun, has one empty slot, and comes with the ability Fast Charge 1. It can be created for 1,620 gil by using an Adamantite and Orichalcum x3 (Hard or Very Hard mode).

Gungnir Blade) after the Gungnir, reflecting Lightning's other level 100 exclusive weapon being Odin's Zantetsuken. The Odin Blade has 68 atttack and provides the abilities Back to the Wall and Free Air Dash Boost. It can be obtained by trading a Barrage Blade, Survival Knife, Flash's Hope x5, and 182,800 gil.
A lance that promises its owner victory. Once owned by a war god, the gungnir's might lives up to its reputation. According to legend, this lance would penetrate any target it was thrown at, and eventually make its own way back to its master. Scholars remain speculative about its supposed divine origins, but there is no doubt that the gungnir has always brought peace over the course of history.
