Lancers are common enemies who are found in High Peak Castle.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Lancers may attack in 4 directions, directly upwards or downwards, and to the left or right. They can right above and below themselves even with floor obstruction, and attack with a single stab. If Lancers are attacking horizontally, they attack with three stabs.

Moveset[edit | edit source]

Triple stab

  • Description: Stabs at the player three times.
  • Can be blocked, parried, and dodge rolled.
  • This attack can hit through walls.
  • While performing this attack, the Lancer can turn to face the player if they get to the opposite side of the Lancer at the beginning of the combo.



Upward stab

  • Description: Stabs upwards. Can hit through semi-platforms.
  • Can be blocked, parried, or dodge rolled.



Downward stab

  • Description: Stabs downwards. Can hit through semi-platforms.
  • Can be blocked, parried, or dodge rolled.



Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • All of the Lancer's attacks can be avoided by dodging. However, the 3-stab combo may hit the player if they are still in the combo when the roll finishes.
    • Only horizontal attacks can be parried, while vertical ones will simply be unaffected if an attempt is made to parry them, so it's better to dodge them instead.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The War Spear used to have a similar appearance, but still retains an attack pattern that is similar to the Lancer’s weapon. However, it is not dropped by the Lancer but rather by the Hammer.
    • The Flawless still visually resembles the Lancers weapon.
