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.
The strategy and tactics of a lancer are to outrange and fluster enemy targets with their long two-handed polearms. They are trained in a large amount of weaponary giving their attacks diversity and making the class very versatile in combat.
By utilizing the long reach of their polearms, Lancers can deal devastating damage from a relatively safe position. This allows them to avoid enemies while still dealing damage and enhancing allied attacks.
