A troll witch doctor named Zul’iste crafted the first spear of hungry ghosts shortly after the Darkspear tribe joined with Thrall. Zul’iste designed a weapon to attract malicious spirits to the Horde’s enemies.
The spear of hungry ghosts is a longspear with a thin, flexible haft made of cherry-red wood. The steel spearpoint seems to reflect the red tint of the weapon, as if years of use have stained the steel with blood. A long string of red, blue and yellow beads wraps around the spear’s length.
