Drow characters start the game with knowledge of the dark elven spear - any drow character in a role that starts the game with spears will receive the same amount of dark elven spears, though there are no roles where this substitution occurs.

Drow soldiers and watchmen have a 13 chance of generating with a dark elven spear. Driders have an effective 12 chance of generating with a dark elven spear, and other non-undead drow have an effective 18 chance of generating with a dark elven spear and an accompanying set of dark elven bracers, with the exception of drow mages and drow clerics.
