The problem with the spear being Finesse in 5e is that since it has the "thrown" property, it basically turns the spear into a version of the shortbow that is versatile, and can hit in melee.

Now, for some reason, Larian seems to have removed "thrown" from all (most?) of the weapons you find, despite adding a throw action. Which is weird. I'm hoping they will revert this decision, but if they didn't, I see no reason not to have the spear be a finesse weapon right this moment.

Edit: Spears are not versatile in BG3 either? Wth Larian?
