Do you think they will have a spear as a viable melee weapon?

Hope so! It sounds good as an innovation in weapons...I have seen spears only in Line Age 2, I think...

well I did see an interesting video where a guy in skyrim had a spear it didn't do much damage but had greater reach than any other weapon.

I first saw these in Diablo 2, they are a fine weapon.

They had them in Morrowind but got rid of them for Oblivion. They didn't restore them in Skyrim. I think mainly because you need another skill tree for it. It depends on what level of play they're going for.

I know it doesn't mean anything, but the Dunmer in the official EP wallpaper is carrying a polearm.

Thought I'd get that out there. :-)

I have that image as a wallpaper on my PC and yes it looks promising but...a lot of games show things that they do not content in their release.

Same, Ivixor. I think it would be ideal to have spears, especially if they're advertising them in the wallpapers.

I have seen no spear in any video of TESO and this is a reason I have doubts about it.

hope they include them - very useful for attacking whilst keeping out of striking distance

I'm just going to say, if they bring back spears they better bring back halberds!

A Spear would be a distance weapon, so I cannot imagine to have a spear do big damage. I think when it´s gonna be in game it has a high block chance or you can evade easily. Something like a dagger-on-a-stick ;)

Well, considering some/a lot of the development staff are from Mythic Entertainment, who had the 'armsman' class which used polearms that there may end up being a polearm weapon. If that's the case, my Dunmer will definitely be using one.

The idea of adding pole-arms is good, but I still consider them useless weapons :P
