Jousting lance

Jousting lance

The jousting lance is a horseman's spear, broader at the base than the tip to help balance its twelve-foot shaft. It is far too heavy to be used on foot, and even when mounted it needs to be locked against a shield in order to keep it in position. Note that the natural damage bonus of the lance (listed below) is doubled when riding at a canter, and tripled at a gallop, although this only occurs at the moment of impact.

Skill type: Polearms (also benefits from the Lance Mastery talent).
Usage: One handed, and cannot be thrown.
