All You Need To Know Top

Hi all, i'm here today to show you what I think is a borderline overpowered build on lance. I've been experimenting some builds on lance, when i got an inspiration to add aftershock to it after watching ttiger's video. Ive been playing this build a whole lot and have a lot of fun dominating people with it. This build can be played both as a Jungler or a Side Laner

So the way to play him is very simple. You bum rush your jungle/lane and try to gather 3100 gold as fast as possible for Sorrowblade, Sprint Boots and Oak heart. Stay out of danger during this time and only focus on farming, but don't forget to assist your Mid and Bot laner if you're playing jungler. Once you have these 3 items, just go hunting(Jungler) or start bullying your lane buddy hard(Side Laner). Almost no hero will be able to contest your burst except for Reza *CoughCough OVERBUFF *CoughCough. Regardless whether you grab kills or not, buy Aftershock and Reflex Block and ALWAYS prioritize reflex block over aftershock. Then after that, roam around the map and go on a rampage(Jungler) or make occasional rotations to bully the enemy Mid Laner(Side Laner).

After that, go for Spellsword or more defense depending on what situation you're in. When everyone has their full builds, switch your playstyle to a Warrior's. Aftershock will minimize your fall off compared to other weapon lance builds.

For his abilities, you generally want to rush your overdrive for your A first, so you an have that double roll, and you also want to overdrive your ult. Also if you were wondering, yes, max out your combat roll and disregard your overdrive for your B. This may seem like a big nono for many people since the overdrive for Lance's B is basically a free reflex block, but overdriving your A is important for more combos and pursuing enemies, and overdriving his ult will grant you 1 less second off its cooldown, giving you 2 second rolls and some more sweet, sweet damage. This is why getting a reflex block early game is very important, besides, you're playing Lance as an assassin, you want to try burst down people as fast as possible and stick to them as best as possible.

With this build you will actually realize that Lance's nuke attack is now his basic attack after combat roll (Assuming aftershock is not on cooldown), this makes aftershock easy to abuse, since its cooldown is 1.5 seconds and your combat rolls cooldowns will reach 2 seconds. This will make up that little bit of sustainability you lost from not overdriving your B.

That about summarizes everything you need to know about him. Remember, don't forget to place deep vision if you're playing jungler and place defensive scout cams if you're Side Laning. Also don't forget that you are not invinsible, don't try initiate a 1v2 unless both player are squishy carries, which is still very dangerous!

Some Stuff About Me Top

This is my very first guide for a hero, so I decided it to be for Lance, since i main him. When I joined Vainglory, i didn't know anything, but to me, Lance stood out among the heroes. I saw that he was going to be available for Glory in 2 days, so I decided to save my Ice, which i assumed was the special currency, then bought him 2 days later making him the first hero i bought.(Ringo, Taka and Skaarf don't count!). Ive mained the captain position every since as Lance, then I decided to try weapon lance, which worked! After some nerfs to him though, especially the one that took 200 damage off his root (oof). I couldn't make him work anymore, which made me kinda sad. I was overjoyed when i saw the buffs he received on update 3.3, then was back to being sad again after i realized how overpowered Kensei and Reza was. I've added some new heroes to my hero pool. Churnwalker, Tony, Ardan and i'm planning on playing kensei too once they nerf him (I don't want to get depressed like the other nerds that try to argue he's balanced). To be honest, I still don't see many people even trying weapon lance, which confused me seeing how he was the hero that got reworked the most last patch, so i decided to make this guide so that other people can enjoy this build before it gets inevitably nerfed XD.Have fun with this build and give me some feedback! Add me on Vainglory! My IGN is Harbinger1004 (don't forget the capital 'H') I'm an SEA player and a full on captain main that can also play a mean weapon jungler/side laner in a pinch.
