    Isn't that a "lance only" type ability? Check the description.

    Yeah, Speed Surge is lance only.

    Is Pierce worth buying? Or should I save up for Full Thrust or the 20%+ movmenent speed move despite only being level 15?

    Yes, I saw what they said. But is it still better if I'm no where near the Optimal Level?

    Was no where near the optimal level in beta, and full thrust owned. I mean like, full thrust, trammel, full thrust, skewer, full thrust, moonrise; insert feint anywhere I missed.

    Many leves have groups of mobs that you have to fight at once. What are people using for aoe damage? Brandish (from Marauder) has been easier to use than trying to line up skewer or deathspike. Or is everyone just waiting until leg sweep for this?

    Haven't had a problem lining up Doomspike.

    What REALLY BLOWS, was the leathercraft quest. I had to make a wood wailers jacket, and even had to wear it around for a while making sure the quality was good. Looking freakin awesome, and had some decent stats too, much better than my dodoskin jacket. But of course, completing the quest meant turning it in. I would have gave 20k gil and my 2k guild marks to keep that jacket.

    The lv 20 quest for lancer is a joke too. Takes like 5 minutes and is pretty lame. Please tell me they're adding more than 3 quests, because the first one was more than a disappointment.

    If it's like pug, another post here showed that completing the rank 30 quest will unlock your next set of abilities, which included flurry. Flurry and Full thrust are basically the same, so going by that trend hit 30, do the quest, and you can get full thrust.

    Is anyone having huge problems gearing lancer? Not only can I not find a single spear upgrade but I don't think I've seen a single piece of armor with Lancer in the preferred classes section yet.

    dodoskin jacket, dented celata, sheepskin armguards, hempen breeches, leather shoes, brass spear

    That's what I'm wearing. Made most of it myself, aside from the helm/shoes. Could use sheepskin leggins(what I used previous to leather), and a bronze sallet? I think those two work. You just need to find a crafter and ask them to make, easiest way to do it.

    I need to put together a brass spear at some point. Im wearing a bronze hauby, bronze mail coif, sheepskin skirt. Basically anything that shows LNC or all classes for it. Check out any database and search by gear that includes lancer as listed.

    I've found that optimal rank affects an item's stats far more than favored class. So if you see something with really attractive stats for your rank, but it doesn't say LNC on it, I wouldn't really stress out about it.

    So with that in mind, wearing a haubergon at 16 is a bad idea or no? Seems a step up from my sheepskin harness, not sure what being below optimal rank does really.

    I don't know exactly how armor scales, but it's pretty simple to test -- put on your harness, wait, look at your stats, put on your haubergeon, wait until your stats change, and see if it's an improvement. I used a Tracker's Tunic until 20 then switched to the haubergeon -- by then it was a fairly substantial upgrade. And as an individual item, it is a disproportionate upgrade over most options available in the teens, so it might be worth using already.

    That's pretty much how I've been going with gear upgrades at the moment. Pushing 23 as it stands, and using a Brass Spear, Bronze Hauby, Skull Eyepatch +1, Dodoskin Skirt, Leather Shoes and Armguards, and a plethora of brass accessories. Gear actually scales down pretty well, I was honestly surprised when the Skull Eyepatch was a gain over the Leather Eyepatch, despite being so far below the optimal rank.

    I currently am 14 and wear hempen tabard, hempen kecks, sheepskin leggings, dodo wristguards and harpoon +1 (i made it!) I have a dodoleather jacket and skirt for when i rank up. My main issue is getting an upgraded spear. I could soon make brass spear if I had a bronze spear, or feathered harpoon if i could find hyena fangs but I cannot find either item. I hear that hyenas are in LL but I have not seen any yet, and they do not show up on the databased. Feathered harpoon sounds pretty awesome though ; ;
