Dive Thrust is an additional attack that you can do when doing Guard Dash. Use them in conjunction to close distances quickly.

Dash Attack

CommandZR + X + A

The Lance's most well known attack. You can keep moving forward as long you have the stamina for it. Anything in your path will take damage.

Finishing Thrust Additional Attack

CommandX during Dash Attack

Press X while performing the Dash Attack to end your run with a powerful thrust. Time this to when you want to end your Dash Attack.


CommandZR + A

Go on guard and counter monster attacks with the Counter-thrust. This provides both offense and defense when done correctly. If you do not release the button on time, it will be canceled.

Power Guard

CommandZR while charging Counter-thrust or during Guard Reactions

Press ZR + A while charging Counter -thrust or during guard reactions to activate Power Guard. Your stamina will deplete as long as your shield is readied, but stun time for guarding will be greatly reduced until you stamina runs out, allowing you to swiftly counter-attack.

Twin Vine


A Silkbind attack activated by pressing ZL + X. Jabs a kunai into the target to get its attention. Pressing ZL + B while the kunai is lodged into the target will launch you towards it while guarding.

Anchor Rage

CommandZL + A

A Silkbind attack activated by pressing ZL + A. Attacks absorbed while your shield is up temporarily boosts you attack power. The strength of the boost depends on the power of the attack absorbed.

Recommended Combos Of Lance

Basic Lance Attack Combo


With the High-Thrust being more powerful than the Mid-Thrust, your basic combo should consist of it the most.

Counter Attack Loop


A combo with the counter-thrust attack fitting into it. When the counter is decided, the combo will be reset and you can attack three times. If you land the counter, you can just keep on attacking.

Charge Combo


Deal damage with a high damage pool. Since you can't keep doing the combo in a loop, you need to put in High-Thrust in between.

New Silkbind Attacks Of Lance

Twin Vine


While the Kunai is stuck, you can jump while guarding to the position of the monster with the button input. Since jumping does not consume Wirebug gauge, you can freely zip between positions. This greatly increases Lance's overall mobility.

Use To Increase Attack Opportunities

Twin Vine is not only a good way to close distance, but it's great for dodging enemy attacks and utilizing opportunities to attack.

Anchor Rage


Hold the shield, and when attacked, your damage will increase for a duration while counterattacking. The damage multiplier increases depending on the damage of the attack.

Twin Vines always hits

During Twin Vines, the Lance's mobility is greatly increased. Although it consumed 2 gauges, the effect time is quite long and it will always land.

Anchor Rage Increases Damage

Anchor Rage's damage multiplier has a short effect time, but it greatly improves on the Lance's attacking power. This along with counter attacks is a great way to ramp up damage against monsters.
