Copper Lance?

If you look in caves, copper is one of the many gems/minerals yet to have a model.

I would prefere to have the same outcome for every material. I would be weird if some materials became a spear and some became a halberd or other things. But with the same way of making them.

Hmm, so if it is two-handed, what it is second button function? Quick stabbing is cool … but what could be it’s second? …

As a lance is wielded in hip-height when worn it could be a charge for example … would be nice to have a short sprint (lets say 1-2 secs) with a big stab if hit ^^

Since it is a 2-handed weapon maybe think of implementing also a “Block or parade animation” to defend yourself from melee attacks :smile:

I would personaly prefere that its second functionality was somekind of knockback attack as that would go well with a spear/lance

The posture of the character suggest that he´s going to throw his weapon. If you use polearms in melee combat you usually have them in the height of the hip like this:


So I think that this weapon might be used as a javelin and not as a spear.

Oh, missed that line.
Well then I´m really curious about the attacking animation.

If it’s a sort spear, it could be used (with a shield, if not is just a loose on distance) over the shoulder, usually aiming for the head, or holes in the oponent defense

Just that, i do medieval martial arts, kendo, Iado, softcombat, and a lot of other things XD so i know about the weapon uses XD

Positioning and such is more like usage of a Spear than a Lance.

A lance would be held lower and with both hands.

As such I would expect a lance to be coming from the lower edge of the screen pointing to the middle and angled from one side.

More akin to the mark added in attached.

After a quick search, nothing has been said by the devs (so it seems anyho) about the lance since this post - can we get a dev response: is the lance coming or not?

I am really disappointed in the lack of weapon options, two is really quite paltry, and no melee? What kind of game has no melee… we need the lance. My tank archetype needs this badly, and I can’t imagine its that hard to implement?

Last thing I remember was this:

The lance mastery on testing is removed with the new skill system.

It is improbable that the Lance will make it to 1.0
