I'm starting over with a strict theme, using only spears and daggers,
(came across Crystalmere @ level 9 and put it in a chest - felt good to
do it). Is there any unique spears to hope for? What would be a good
early/mid game option as well?

A decent very early spear is the one Ra'Vir sells with a bound-spear
enchantment on it. Devil spear or Deamon spear or something
like that. Getting the extra 10 in spear helps in the early game.
There is a dwemer spear in the Angmumble dwemer ruins just
outside of Fort Moonmoth if you want to enchant your own spear.

There is Ilkurok (or something like that) that is standing about
in a Dwemer ruin (the one the first Sadrith Mora fighter's guild
quest is in). It has +15 night eye, which is very helpful in the
early to mid game.

There is the Spear of Bitter Mercy.

I particularly like to enchant a lightweight spear (say silver spear)
with bound spear on strike. This gives you the +10 spear skill,
with a blade that renews itself frequently (does not dull out and
need repairing much).

Spears are a much under rated weapon. They are fast (though
not quite as fast as a dagger), have that nice reach so you
don't have to close completely with opponents and can really
knock someone back/down if you hit them with a good running
rush. There are also not terribly heavy. And, if you are not
paying to train up, they help you build endurance. A spear and
a medium cuirass pretty much guarantee at 2-3 point raise in
endurance with nearly every level up.

A silver spear is a very good spear to have, regardless of whether you
want to enchant it, especially in the early game. It kills the
supernaturals that you are likely to meet early on; it does as much
damage (or almost) as the Dwemer spear and weighs a lot less. I think
a mechant in Pelegiad sells them, but I am not sure. It could have
been Caldera or Ald'Ruhn. I just remember that one of my weaker
characters found one for sale early on and never regretted buying it.
He used it on the Tribunal assassains to great effect. Spear soon
became his preferred weapon.

I just checked and the Armorer (right next to Ghorak Manor) in Caldera
has one for sale.

Bound Spear on STRIKE? Brilliant. Can't wait to try it.
