Although, spears had proved to be extremelly usefull pieces of arsenal, being possible to handle in only one hand, or both with you prefer. Its long reach prevents enemies from getting too close, and the long reach can also be used to take care of unaware foes, by holding your spear close to the blade, its reach becomes hidden behind your body, as your enemy charges viciously against you, you can give a surprise thrust to his gullet.
Spears are more commonly used in Black Marsh, where the Argonians usually wields it to fight the big and intimidating creatures that walks the swamps.
The spears has also seen extensive use in complex army formations, such a phalanx for example, combined with a good leader and training,it can turn pretty much any army almost impenetrable.
