Gunlance - Recommended Skills

Skill NameEffect / Reason
Artillery
(Priority: ★★★)
【Effect】
Strengthens explosive attacks like shells, Wyvern's Fire, charge blade phial attacks, and Sticky Ammo.
【Reason】
Strenghten's Wyvern Fire
Razor Sharp
(Priority: ★★★)
【Effect】
Prevents your weapon from losing sharpness.
【Reason】
Prevents your weapon's sharpness from depleting after doing a Wyvernfire
Evade Extender
(Priority: ★★★)
【Effect】
Increases evade distance.
【Reason】
Compensates from the Gunlance's low mobility. Very important especially in multiplayer
Load Shells
(Priority: ★★★)
【Effect】
Improves reloading, and increases the gunlance's shell capacity and charge blade's phial capacity.
【Reason】
Quickens reloading and increases your shell capacity, thereby increasing your damage output
Guard
(Priority: ★★★)
【Effect】
Reduces knockbacks and stamina depletion when guarding.
【Reason】
Incredibly useful as the Gunlance is a weapon that guards most of the time
Wirebug Whisperer
(Priority: ★★☆)
【Effect】
Improves your handling of Wirebugs.
【Reason】
Very useful if you frequently use Wirebug attacks
Offensive Guard
(Priority: ★★☆)
【Effect】
Temporarily increases attack power after executing a perfectly-timed guard.
【Reason】
If you want to use Guard Edge, take care as if you don't guard once it starts, you will lose the buff
Guard Up
(Priority: ★☆☆)
【Effect】
Allows you to guard against ordinarily unblockable attacks.
【Reason】
Allows you to shield up and guard against more devastating attacks. Useful even at Lv. 1
