Lancers are common enemies who are found in High Peak Castle.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Lancers may attack in 4 directions, directly upwards or downwards, and to the left or right. They can see The Beheaded when it appears right below or above them even with floor obstruction, and attack with a single stab. If Lancers are attacking horizontally, they attack with three stabs.

  • The three stab combo can be turned to face the Beheaded if he gets to the opposite side of the Lancer at the beginning of the combo.
  • Horizontal strikes go through walls and can hit the player if the wall is thin enough.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • All of the Lancers attacks can be avoided by dodging. However the 3-stab combo may hit the Beheaded if it is still in the combo when the roll finishes.
    • Only horizontal attacks can be parried, while vertical ones will simply be unaffected if an attempt is made to parry them, so it's better to dodge them instead.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The weapon, War Spear, has a similar appearance and attack pattern to the Lancer’s weapon. However, it is not dropped by the Lancer but rather by the Hammer.
