Pilum, or pila in plural form, is a javelin which was designed by the Romans as a single-use ranged weapon. The pilum was designed to bend upon impact, so that it make the shield awkward to wield and had the benefit that it couldn't be thrown back. The pilum usual also a head design making it difficult to remove and being able to penetrate armor. The item is a Tactical item and as such, it can be used by all classes.

This tactical item can be used in a range of six hexes and the effect of the item is applied the following way. If the enemy uses a shield, all Shield strength is removed and the Status effect Shieldbroken is applied. The shield won't be restored by Stacks of Strong, it must be fixed with the Repair skill. With the shield not being present or being accounted for, the Pilum will then inflict two armour shredding (breaking two armour) and then inflict six points of damage the normal way. As such, enemies with a lot of armor aren't harmed by this javelin, until enough armour is broken.

Upon unlocking the forge, the second rank of the item is immediately available. With the foundry, it's very probable that the third rank of the item is unlocked immediately as well.
