The Javelin is a mid-level spear stolen from Sand Bears. It is the most powerful weapon in Bartz's World (except for the limited Gaia Hammer), and can be obtained as soon as the party has escaped from Karnak Castle.

The javelin was originally thrown high into the sky to attack foes from a great distance.

Since this weapon was meant to be disposable, it was produced in such large numbers that it is now often used for lance training.

Etymology[edit | edit source]
A javelin is a light spear designed primarily to be thrown as a ranged weapon. The javelin is almost always thrown by hand, although hurling devices do exist. The word javeline comes from Middle English and it derives from Old French javelin, a diminutive of javelot, which meant spear.
