Class Overview


As powerful in defense as in attack, the lancer’s role in a fight is at the head of the formation. His heavy shield absorbs damage, while his lance provides striking power that’s targeted yet effective against multiple foes. Numerous skills for drawing aggro let the lancer take the heat and give his party members more opportunities. Lancers can minimize damage to their own party and help them devastate the enemy.


A lancer's shield not only protects him, it protects those clustered behind him. Lancers are a walking safe spot for the wounded as they escape, and a refuge for ranged fighters who want to get in closer.

Battering Ram

Besides pinning down foes and shrugging off their attacks, lancers can drive forward, drilling through anything in front of them, mowing down multiple targets as easily as one.

Armor: Plate

Lancers fight in heavy armor, and with the addition of their outstanding shield defense, are so well-protected they have some to spare for those around them.

Weapon: Lance and Shield

The lancer's formidable weapon set includes the powerful lance, but he can also swing his shield for two-handed attack power to be reckoned with on the battlefield.
