Where's my Lance?

Recommended Posts

Legionnaire is a polearm-wielding, always-mounted melee fighter.

He needs to have a promotion class that specializes in the one-handed spear, the king of polearms.

Historically, spears have been prominent on battlefields until rifles were adopted for very good reasons.

They're relatively cheap to make and very powerful.

 

There are already slashing/chopping polearm specialists and smashing polearm specialists. 

Legionnaires need a promo class that specializes in piercing damage polearms, and give that weapon a bleed effect with every critical hit, just like Rangers get with their arrows.

In Greek mythology Centaurs were also expert archers, I wouldn't mind seeing that as an option for Legionnaires.

Yes, centaur archers would be powerful, with their movement speed.

But ranged combat isn't part of the Legionnaire's basic concept, so they'll need a bow discipline in order to equip a bow, and we cannot expect to be able to train specific bow skills within the archetype.

 

Lances are fully within ACE's vision for the centaur Legionnaire, so we should see specific one-handed spear skills trainable within (at least) a promotion class in the Legionnaire AT tree, even if the current AT animations make him look a bit clueless using the spear.
