Elfrist is a chaotically aligned orcish spear added in SLASH'EM that deals extra damage to elves.[1] It is another artifact in the game that can be created by #name-ing, along with Sting and Orcrist. To do so type in #name, select a normal orcish spear, and name it Elfrist. To make sure you did it correctly, you may now try to name the spear into something completely different—all artifacts resist naming. Elfrist can also be given as a gift by sacrificing.

This weapon is worth keeping if found, since its flat damage bonus large enough to use without raising your skill in spears. However, since elves in midgame are relatively weak enemies, it is almost never worth creating by naming.
