Well here we go. Thought I'd be doing the Legendary Sword next, but after reading the first two volumes of The Reprise of the Spear Hero I decided to make Motoyasu's weapon: The Legendary Spear.

Like my Shield Hero datapack you get started by giving yourself the tag spear:

/tag @s add spear

Unlock new spears by dropping materials in slot 9 of you inventory (upper left slot). If you're in survival and have the resource pack on, there'll be an icon indicating the proper slot. Listed below are the currently implemented spears and their material requirements:

  • Rope Spear
    Unlock: String
    Skill: Air Strike Javelin
    Skill Cost: 40 SP
    Item Enchantment: SP Cost Down (At max level Air Strike Javelin Uses Only 20 SP)
  • Siderite Spear 
    Unlock: Conduit
    Skill: Shooting Star Spear
    Skill Cost: 60 SP
    Item Enchantment: Aerial Power (Temporarily increases strength and speed when Shooting Star Spear is used     in mid-air)
  • Iron Spear
    Unlock: Iron Ingot
    Skill: Chaos Spear
    Skill Cost: 100 SP
    Item Enchantment: SP Cap Increase (Increases SP Cap while the Iron Spear is held (Max of 700))

The Base Spear can also be thrown by right clicking
. This costs no SP but it takes two seconds to return should you miss.

To switch Spears, just drop your current one and click on one of the prompts in chat.


/trigger status - Check your currently equipped spear's proficiency

/trigger check_energy - Check your total weapon energy points
/trigger take_energy - Convert the selected spear’s proficiency to energy points
/trigger give_energy - Convert energy points into spear proficiency
/trigger smelt - Attempt to smelt with the ore in your offhand (See power-up description below)

Spears gain 1 proficiency point every 1.5 minutes they're equipped. After reaching a proficiency of 100 you need to spend weapon energy points to raise the weapon's level.

Spear rarity rises as you gain more proficiency. The effects and stats of the spears increase as well.

The rarity levels:

C (Common) (0-99 Proficiency)

UC (Uncommon) (100-199 Proficiency)
R (Rare) (200-299 Proficiency)

SR (Super Rare) (300-499 Proficiency)

AR (Artifact) (500+ Proficiency)

**NEW** Item Enchant / Smelting System

The Spear Hero's power-up method. Hold an ore in your offhand and the spear in your mainhand. Execute the command:
/trigger smelt

NOTICE: This upgrade can fail! If it fails, the item enchantment level is set to zero. Whether the smelt is a success or not, your ore will be consumed.

The chance of success depends on the ore you use:

Coal Ore - Large chance of failure
Iron Ore - Moderate chance of failure
Redstone Ore - Moderate chance of failure
Gold Ore - 50/50 Chance
Diamond (not diamond ore) - Strong chance of success
Emerald (not emerald ore) - Strong chance of success
Ancient Debris - 100% chance of success

Occasionally nothing happens during a smelt. This is a bug, but it won't reduce the number of your ores, so it can be ignored.

SP and skills can WILL malfunction in multiplayer if multiple people are the same hero (go figure!)

Will the Minute hand of the dragon be added or is it to complex? I imagine it would send all heroes back to world spawn and clear everybody’s inventory, and remove all other heroes unlocked weapons except spear hero’s of course. Maybe it would send heroes to world spawn but normal players to their beds?

It's not currently on my list, but I think I know of a simple way to achieve such an effect. XD The only thing missing would be a terrain reset.

Nice I’d love to see that if it’s possible in a datapack.
also what other spears are planned? I don’t believe motoyasu has as many weapons as naofumi.

This is a nice start for the Spear. I actually never knew that The Reprise of the Spear Hero even existed until now.

It's a fun series. Oddly enough beyond the comedy and over-the-top power levels it has equal or maybe even better worldbuilding than the main series. In my opinion of course.

I've pretty much finished the Siderite Spear, but I think i'll release several spears in the next update. Having to program 2 power-up methods now is slowing me down a bit. XD
