Introduction

The lancer is a master of polearms—weapons which have evolved from humble hunting tools. In former times, the longspear saw the most widespread use, due in great part to the influence of the proud lancer legions of Ala Mhigo. The lancer's weaponry has since expanded to include other lethal implements such as the halberd and trident. While it is no easy task to wield a polearm as if it were an extension of one's body, those who master the lancing arts come to be as a raging storm before their enemies, capable of delivering a barrage of devastating thrusts and slashes.

Core mechanics

Lancer icon.png
The lancer builds off the foundation for its job, making use of positioning and combinations to maximize their damage.
  •  Heavy Thrust - Delivers an attack with a potency of 150. 190 when executed from a target's flank.
  •  Disembowel - Delivers an attack with a potency of 150.
  •  Impulse Drive - Delivers an attack with a potency of 200.

Lancers inflict piercing damage, allowing them to take advantage of their own Disembowel effect and giving them some synergy with ranged physical classes. Some abilities can be used to further increase their damage output.
