Spear-Breaking was a Drenchen Clan ritual. Since spears are an instrument of choice to the Drenchen, when a spear shaft finally cracks or bends, a short yet requisite ritual is conducted, the spear bearer breaks the shaft fully (if it isn’t already) and removes the spearhead. The broken shaft is discarded into the lake to rejoin Thra, and the spearhead is transplanted onto a new shaft. The tradition is often observed by close friends. During the ritual the Spear-Breaking Incantation is sung.[1]
