10ft Lance ??
# Oct 21 2002 at 9:54 AM Rating: Decent
Yo :-)

Ok I bought one of these the other day traded my Cobalt Gaunts and some plat. No mistake its a weapon of great damage and reasonably ok in the delay section if u combine it with haste.

But I have one small but valid point (pun not intended) and that is................... how the L am i suppost to turn corners in a dungeon, added to the fact that all the mobs would see the bloody thing poking out like a sore thumb five mins before I came into view :-)))

rogue pierce..nope
# Jan 27 2002 at 9:10 AM Rating: Decent
Sorry guys, if you haven't already heard Verant has stated that rogues will never get a piercer over 15dam. Currently I have yet to see any 2h piercer available to any rogue. Its the whole balancing thing, if we got this weap when we would out damage any and everything. Backstabs would serious hamper any dragons day and everyone and their mother would want to be a rogue. But then again this is a lance, albiet a shortened lance. Then again the only lances that knights fought with on foot were cut down horse lances to whatever they felt like (usually 7ft according to manuscipts). Using 2 hands is what gives this weap its 30 dam (get it 15x2). Still though, its what gives us rogues something to dream about.

I have always wondered what a lance would look like. Well, I finally got enough to buy one. For all those wondering what it looks like when wielded click on link (or put in your address bar, not sure how it works here).

No, this is not crafted by players. It is only a drop in Dragon Necropolis.

I got one of these last night. I'm a wood elf female warrior, so it looks absolutely HUGE on me. The damage output is pretty nice. I didn't have shammy buffs and I was hitting mostly in the 90s with about one in 6 hits being over 100. The looks are what's different about his lance tho. It's very distinctive...has an odd shaped blade, colored handle. I'm almost afraid to take it to karnors tonight. I've never seen one before and I know i'll be getting inspected all night. The slow speed wasn't much of an issue. I have an fbss and was augmented...i could still taunt pretty decently.

Footman's lances have always been, and always shall be two-handed weapons. Having used one in real life I can attest to their sheer size, being over 9 feet long with a small shield front at the lance base. Even if you could find a lance that weighs under 10 pounds ( maybe titanium and driftwood ), you would still need both hands because it would be completely unwieldy with one hand. To answer the gripe about using a shield with a lance, having also done jousting with the SCA and not being small ( 6 - 1 at 265 lbs ) I can attest that using even a 16 foot jousting lance with no metal bindings is a task, as all your strength is used just to aim the beast, the weight being rested against the shoulder and side-body, the force of the blow being delivered by the horse. It would be ludicrous for Verant to make this a one handed item and they know it, at least they got something right.

good call dude
#Anonymous, Posted: Mar 01 2001 at 3:48 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Yea, I learned all about it in the SCA, thats where cool people like go to have fun and beat on poeple with fake swords. Later we all go back to my place for Dungeon and Dragons because I still live in my parents basement.

Thank you Vouscha for giving the lesson on lances that was soo badly needed here.

The real question someone should have asked is this:

I was pretty sure the 2H Pierce (which is really just piercing used by WAR/PAL/SHD) was just that; only usable by WAR/PAL/SHD. Was I misinformed? Did rogues get the 2H Pierce as well? I'm not arguing the fact, as rogues are piercing masters, but I was pretty sure they didn't get it. Anyone know?

Now, I'm seeing that I may just have overlooked something. The picture DOESN'T SHOW rogues as users of this. Maybe just a mistake by Alla?
RE: How Ignorant
# May 14 2001 at 8:37 AM Rating: Default
rofl can you imagine a rogue sneaking stealthly around hidden in shadows with a 10ft war lance??? 2h is only for war/pal/sk for good reason. plus this item would be wayyyyyyyyyyyyy too cheap with back stab think about it
Rogues dont get 2h...
# Mar 01 2001 at 12:25 PM Rating: Decent
Rogues dont get the 2h piercing, *i believe*. The reason for this is that typically the 2h piercings have a much higher damage output then a single handed piercing, and if a rogue some how got a hold of this and was able to use this, his backstab damage would rock anything...

# Mar 01 2001 at 6:13 PM Rating: Decent
Oh yeah, can you see a rogue do a backstab with this 30 damage weapon? Woof!

Aside from that, the idea that you could backstab someone with a nine-foot spear is just ludicrous. So Rogues, no lance for joo!

I assume that when you equip one of these you can't use a shield in the off hand, anyone know if this is true or not?
RE: Rogues dont get 2h...
# Mar 02 2001 at 2:15 AM Rating: Default
2h pierce and 1h pierce use the single skill, piercing. the only difference is the number of hands deemed required to wave the thing around. not the skill. i use a messenger of the queen and deepwater harpoon. one a 2h pierce the othe a 1h pierce. by the way paly piercing sux ) the harpoon i refer to is the one dropped by bloodgills. i may have the name wrong
RE: Rogues dont get 2h...
# Mar 03 2001 at 8:40 AM Rating: Default
Lemme get this straight...A rogue should be able to use a frigging WAR lance? hmm lemme see...rogue that back stacks, needs to be quick yadayadayada using a 9' lance...that makes just so much sense.

2 handed lances?!?
# Feb 28 2001 at 9:55 PM Rating: Default
What in blazes is a lance a two handed weapon for? They were used in one hand with a shield in the other. If VI wants 2HP in the game put in long spears, pikes, awls, voulges and other polearms!
Nice to see a response to the lance issue paladins have been begging for, but this is a bit silly.
RE: 2 handed lances?!?
# Mar 01 2001 at 12:54 AM Rating: Decent
Most lances were in fact NOT used one handed. They had smaller lances, that knights used on horseback, must the majority of the lances were held by footsoldiers, and most definately with two hands.
