Re: So... why the spear?
Spear is probably your highest dps choice, since it causes bleeds, but swords and clubs are both useful in many situations too.
But also keep in mind that the word 'spear' has multiple meanings in the warden world. It could refer to the weapon, but it also refers to your gambit builders (your Quick Thrust skill gives you a 'spear' builder), 'spear' gambits, and your dps oriented traitline 'Way of the Spear'. Gambits starting with a 'spear' builder are called spear gambits, even if you aren't using a spear as your weapon.
I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend. ~ Faramir
Undo the U12 class changes. The trait trees were, are, and will always be a bad idea.
