Greatlance is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



This lance features a long pole, and was originally intended to be used by knights for jousting.

This weapon is primarily used in charging attacks, and would require tremendous strength and dexterity to be handled by a mere foot soldier.

Skill: Charge
Hold lance at waist and charge at foe. Use strong attack while charging to extend the length of the charge. 

Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • It and all other pike-class weapons have a slow attack speed when used one handed that becomes much faster when wielded with two hands.



Location/Where to Find

  • Found in Lothric Castle near the Dragon Barracks bonfire. From the bonfire, head up the stairs and to the left to find the Greatlance next to a red-eyed Lothric Knight.

      It seems like most people here don't seem to understand that the R1 combos into the full weapon art, which deals massive damage. It's not the best, but it's certainly not bad, you just have to be cautious.

      • Don't let the comments scare you off from even touching this weapon09 Oct 2016 09:57

        The lance is certainly bad, there's no doubt about that, and using it in PvP is a recipe for disaster. But it's also an absolute blast to use in PvE, and if you like challenging yourself unnecessarily, fighting bosses with this thing is incredibly fun. And it's stylish as *****, too. It's worth noting that while the R1s and R2s are horribly slow, as has been pointing out, the running, rolling, and shield-poke attacks, as well as the weapon art, appear to have the standard speed shared by all spears and pikes - that is to say, MUCH faster than its regular moveset, which is a useful thing as the greatlance boasts the highest AR of its class. You'll want to rely on those unless you're prepared to be VERY patient and careful with your spacing.

        • Attack speed08 Oct 2016 21:17

          So i'm trying to make this build right so i'm trying to figure out if I should use this or the Lothric Long Spear. Do they have the same attack speed I can't really tell but I might just be stupid?

          • Alright... Infusions08 Oct 2016 11:56

            Okay, so the game pretty much implies that quality build is the way to go with this thing (read the description: "requires tremendous strength and dexterity to be handled") and refined infusion is the best choice.<br/>However: i wonder if you can pull something else off with it. Like crystal or lighting infusions combined with buffs yadi yada...<br/>...<br/>Oh wait... I just realized: other damage types don't deal counter damage so Leo Ring will be useless.<br/>Yeah, i guess refined infusion is the only choice, period. And the build must be at least 35/35.

            • The Torch bug22 Sep 2016 18:19

              So i was fidgeting around Rosaria as i was trying to come up with my next build... When i returned back to my little guilty pleasure - the greatlance.<br/>As for a moment i thought "why not make the build around this thing again" i quickly remembered all the painful memories of being f*cked in the ass because attack speed sucks and shield-poking is the way to go if you want to hit the target before target hits you.<br/>But the build required for me to have very little vitality, so my weight ratio was on-edge to 70% (on calculator).<br/>So i needed something (theoretically) to use off-hand so i could use the poking.<br/><br/>That's when i was like "why not the torch"... So i did just that. I took off-hand torch and checked how the poking works.<br/>And uhm... Attack speed there is insane. The poking with the Torch up is FASTER than with any shield. I checked. All the shields (small, medium, great) have the same animation for the poke-attack with the same attack speed, but with the torch it's like 20-30% faster. The animation is faster and so is the attack speed overall. I'M NOT JOKING. This is a thing!<br/>I'm pretty sure that's a bug because that's the speed of shield-poking with rapiers, but if that's a feature... Torch meta incoming?

              • Almost OP it used right.13 Sep 2016 07:02

                Paired with the Leo ring, a little practice, and good spacing a timing, this can one shot week players with one r1, take more than half of tougher ones. It's got counter damage through the roof and I love it. Things the onriki and ubadachis wa are very easily knocked down by this and it's devastating. Don't discount it do to it not being a strait or curved sword. It's got it's own nook.

                • Thoughts after playing PvE through 2 cycles...29 Aug 2016 23:52

                  As the same person who commented "Needs Serious Fixing," I feel obligated to report my discoveries with this weapon after such a long time. After cosplaying as Mauldron the Assassin for two cycles of the game I have found two things that are important:<br/>1. This weapon MUST be paired with the Leo Ring at all times for it to really shine (going to explain why in a bit), and<br/>2. The weapon is extremely defensive and thus should rotate around a defensive build<br/><br/>Using a greatshield is an excellent idea because the shield poke will be your fastest attack and is not too shabby with the damage which also gets boosted by thrust counter damage. Complimenting the defensive style, you also want to wear heavier armor and bump up vigor and vitality as you can trade hits more often with higher health and more defense. Rings that also boost defense and give more health are recommended and Havel's Ring +1 and above is required for the armor.<br/><br/> Finally the Leo Ring boosts the counter thrust damage of the weapon impressively, BUT it seems to activate whenever it wants to. I don't exactly know why but there seems to be two thresholds for counter damage: the first is when an opponent is in an animation before hitting you, and the second is a successful, frame perfect trade. The second scenario is when the Greatlance beats every other weapon in the game by enabling you to rack up damage of numbers near 800-900 on one R1 alone. Combined with a possibility that this weapon might be able to follow up its R1 with a weapon art and you have a weapon that can be really dangerous... on trades. <br/><br/>In summary, very good while trading with people and npcs, bad in its slow speed and extremely defensive, "play perfect" style.

                  • its ok24 Aug 2016 23:51

                    Unless you are patient and time your attacks accordingly to hit enemies after they are done with their combos its an ok weapon still wouldn't recommend it though its meh damage is ok and most of the attacks i got off lothric knights before the dancer were rolling never once did i ever hit one with an r1 before getting hit by something. i used it in a pvp match and did ok with it htough im sure there are better pikes to be used for pvp

                    • OMG LoL the Comments18 Jul 2016 20:27

                      The first weapon I reveiwed on this sight, that almost every single comment from the community is negative, FROM are you not seeing this, hilarious!

                      • Awful31 May 2016 04:16

                        This weapon has probably the worst R1s of any weapon in the game. The rest of the moves at least have some form of utility. For comparison look at the weapons that possess hyper armor on their light attacks. The Great Lance doesn't possess such qualities though it desperately needs them since it actually doesn't have any more reach than an ultra greatsword despite having attacks comparable to it in speed. It's equivalent or out-spaced entirely by the Halberds which not only get hyperarmor but do more damage and are significantly faster. Hell even the great axes will out space this weapon because if the blade isn't long enough to hit you, which honestly something like Yhorm's may match this weapon in range, the resulting shockwave released by it will make sure you don't get an R1 off ever. Not to mention this weapon has atrocious tracking on virtually all of its attacks. This weapon either needs to receive hyper armor for it's R1s or have them entirely replaced with the same light attacks used by the Pike and Lothric Long Spear.

                        • poise is a factor24 May 2016 00:53

                          The lance plays off of poise. Poise affects your characters recovery rate to react. The recovery rate, as I found it to be, is affected by your equipload to poise ratio. More equip load is not necessarily bad if your poise is matching. You wil find your character will respond better when the poise is as high as possible to the best defense you can get at best roll. This is why the lothric spear has the poise advantage, therefore better hit recovery rate. i dont really care what fextra says, ive tested it many times

                          • Needs serious fixing!22 May 2016 21:22

                            FROM really needs to fix this weapon and make it actually useful. It is extremely slow to start up its first attack; by the time you actually get to start the animation, most of the enemies in this game will either attack you first with equal range, i.e. Lothric Knights, or enter in a block stance, i.e. Cathedral Knights. The damage is too low for its current speed; when this weapon only does around 310 for an average attack speed that is slower than the great weapons, it doesn’t make much sense. Even though the range is fantastic, when enemies can actually move out of the stun of your first attack and then proceed to attack you BEFORE your second swing, something is SERIOUSLY WRONG. Speaking of speed, when your R1, or light, is much slower than your R2, or heavy, that there is also a problem.<br/><br/>To move onto a different point, this weapon is the Heide Great Lance and should do lightning damage if they are going to use the same model. Sure, split damage is weird to get a grasp of in terms of how damage reduction is in this game, but please make it so that the damage type is similar to the actual weapon in DS2. If they wanted to use the name “Great Lance” they should have just used the actual Grand Lance from DS2, they literally mean the same thing.<br/><br/>I’m pretty sure that there is more that I’m missing that needs to be fixed with this weapon, and the PvE in general (cough, enemies getting out of stun before the second hit, cough), but you guys in the chat should be able to provide even more points that need to be fixed.<br/>

                            • Useless in current version05 May 2016 23:51

                              weird moveset, you could miss the hit while the foe stands very close to you.<br/>And every strike you made CAN be parried.<br/>the RB strike, the RT strike, the Charged RB strike... <br/>even the Weapon skill, CAN be easily parried, for the first strike of all the lance made is a light hit, which is easy to encounter.<br/>let alone its slow attack speed and damage

                              • THIS ISN'T THE GREATLANCE!18 Apr 2016 01:26
