If your style is roaring defiance at your foes, then standing fast and dispensing damage while shielding nearby party members from harm, you may just be a lancer at heart.
The lancer's formidable weapon set includes a powerful lance and shield that doubles as a weapon. This combination makes lancers a two-handed attack force to be reckoned with on the battlefield.
Lancers fight in heavy armor, and with the addition of their outstanding shield defense, take less damage in a fight than either warriors or slayers.
There is no particular finesse to the lancer's assault, but there is muscle enough to batter foes to the ground and might enough to create a defense zone for comrades in battle. Shield blocks reduce damage for the lancer and nearby comrades, creating a savings in support resources like healing.
The addition of a lancer to any party means sheer battering power and enhanced defense, as well as a fighter who can dish out damage and take it, too.
Lancers enter the world with a damage-dealing combo attack that grows stronger with repetition, and a shield block that turns aside frontal damage. In no time you'll begin to acquire skills that will make you even more terrifying to your foes.
Lancers are most valuable in a tanking role, but unlike other tanks they're capable of providing a zone of diminished damage for comrades who need a breather between heals or a safe place from which to cast or shoot.
Lancers' heavy armor and damage-blocking shield defense means less work for healers and more protection for vulnerable classes. Stunning shield bashes render enemies easier to damage, while aggro-attracting shouts draw fire away from other players, making the lancer a major contributor to group play, and a welcome addition to any fighting party.
The most effective skill is Roar, but too long cool time. Spring Attack and Shield Barrage are the second.
Regard Combo Attack as MP Regen skill.
Roar, Shield Barrage and Spring Attack.. These are core of Aggro.
When enemy is too far use leash..
With highly reinforced weaopned dealers(about +8 or +9), it is not easy to maintain aggro.
With extremely highly reinforced master piece weaponed dealers(over +10), it is hard to maintan aggro.
And Scroll using with monsterous weaponed dealer(LV 50 Akasha weapon, LV58 Dancing Piero Weapon)....
it is nightmare...
