Build Characteristics & Overview
The Lance is a somewhat defensively-oriented weapon, having incredibly powerful Guard abilities. On the flipside, if you're not familiar with this weapon you might have some trouble dealing adequate damage to kill a foe. That being said, the possibilities in team play are quite promising, so it remains to be seen what this weapon can do.
