A spear is a versatile weapon, so medium characters may wield it two-handed to deal 1 extra damage. Small characters must wield it two-handed, and they deal no extra damage for doing so.
Ardents, artificers, avengers, barbarians, bards, battleminds, clerics, druids, fighters, invokers, paladins, psions, rangers, runepriests, seekers, shamans, sorcerers, swordmages, vampires, wardens, warlocks, and warlords are proficient with all simple melee weapons, including the spear. Assassins are proficient with one-handed simple melee weapons, including the spear.
Other classes do not have proficiency with the spear as a class trait, but any character can become proficient by taking a Weapon Proficiency feat.
