    Lancer(top)



    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 lancer is a class that specializes in wielding a variety of long-hafted spears and polearms. They possess a wide range of weaponskill combinations, but have low HP in comparison to other melee Classes, and without the help from other Classes no Abilities enabling them to bolster their defense.

    The Lancer's Guild is located in Old Gridania.​

    Skills(top)

    Lore(top)



    The Lancer’s Guild, also known as “The Wood Wailers”, function as the peacekeepers and security force of the Twelveswood, and act on the behalf of the people of Gridania.

    The masks that the Wood Wailers wear are enchanted so that those who wear them are hidden from the gaze of the elementals. The Wood Wailers know that culture and nature cannot coexist in perfect harmony, and that they will, even when working for the sake of the forest, anger the elementals with their actions every now and again. Thus the masks are a necessary deception.

    The Wood Wailers regularly cull the masses of various pests, with the sanction of the elementals. This is to ensure the safe growth of the plant life in the forest, and more importantly the crops.

    Members of the Wood Wailers are occasionally sent on diplomatic missions to the other City-states, mostly encourage communication between the Wailers themselves, and the leaders of the merchant and supply caravans that make their way through the Twelveswood.
    Other diplomatic duties include escorting caravans from Ul’dah through the Twelveswood, when the elementals are found to be ill at ease, or otherwise attempt to prevent the caravans from getting to their destinations in the Black Shroud.

    Dragoon and Lancer were a lot of fun. They definitely got some of the coolest abilities in the game for melee imo.

    I really want to do Lancer/DRG, but I am almost trying to stay away from it because I know a lot of people will be flocking to it. Lets be honest, DRG has sick looking armor and that alone will draw a lot of people. I still can't make up my mind which DPS I want to be my "main" though.

    You're always a Lancer, even when you're a DRG as far as xp goes. Actually, DRG is an item you equip that modifies Lancer.

    Add me to the list, Dragoon is always what I look for in an MMO, although if they add Dark Knight I'll definitely acquire that too!
