The Lance, along with the Gunlance, provide the most defense capabilities of any weapon type. You can actually move around while guarding with your shield and reposition yourself if necessary. With a armor set that has the right skills, you can actually shake off some of the most powerful hits nearly unscathed, a truly powerful weapon against most strong enemies. The one thing the lances lacks is mobility when holding it, you cannot roll and can only side step. All in all, the Lance is mainly excellent for defense only, so it takes a skilled player to truly utilize the benefits of this weapon.
