Ritual Spears are utility items which can be used to incapacitate units. The spear must first be thrown to the chosen hex. The turn after it is thrown, the spear will be activated and incapacitates the unit standing in the hex.
Because it will incapacitate any unit, the spear should be used to take down tanks or units who can deal a lot of damage. But since it takes one turn before the item is activated, enemies have an opportunity to escape. With a proper strategy, the spear isn't wasted.
To successfully use a Ritual Spear, there are two strategies to prevent the target from leaving the hex, which are:
- surrounding the unit; and
- immobilising the enemy by using status effects.
