FFXIV - Disciples of War - Lancer
The strategy of the lancers is to outrange and fluster opponents with their long, two–handed polearms, peppering them with a barrage of thrusting attacks. They are trained with a number of weapons, giving a diversity to their attacks that makes them extremely versatile combatants.
In former times, the longspear saw the most widespread use, due in great part to the influence of the proud lancer legions of Ala Mhigo. Since then, the guild has greatly expanded its armories to include a variety of weaponry, such as the throwing javelin.

Below is a list of current actions and traits for the Lancer class.

By completting quests the Lancer can become a Dragoon.


As a Lancer you should be focusing on STR as this increases melee attack power.


Abilities


Abilities are actions that the Lancer can equip to their bar and select to use at any time as long as their timer is available. Actions used in a combo will generate additional damage and effects. All Lancer actions are exclusive to that job.
