NEW CASTLE, Del. - April 22, 2022 - PRLog -- Welcome to the Lost Ark Glaivier guide, today we will cover everything you need to know about the Lancemaster class both Control & Pinnacle versions. Skills setup, combat flow, stats allocations & more.


The Glaivier comes equppied with two stances – blue stance for wider hitbox suitable for better aoe impact and a red stance tailored for vector targeting featuring a longer & thinner hitboxes. Switching between stances buffs your overall damage output and is a function based on the amount of meter generated. Meter generation is achieved both in a passive and an active manner, hitting the max level 3 on your meter provides the following buffs:


Also known as the Flurry stance, the first bar grants 5% movement speed, second will increase this to 10% in addition to granting extra 10% damage output increase whereas the max achievable third bar grants 10% attack speed, 10% damage increase and a whooping 15% critical rate buff.


The Focus stance much like the flurry stance, swapping to red will grant 5% movement speed for the first bar, 10% movement and bonus damage on the second bar. Whereas the third bar grants 15% movement speed, 10% damage increase and a 25% critical damage buff.

Keep an eye on both stances, there is a handy quality of life feature below the meter, a small grid which represents the skills of both your stances. Showing your opposite stance's skill cooldowns allowing you to track your off-stance skill's cooldowns allows for strategic decisions without having to swap and enables you to plan few moves ahead.


Pinnacle engraving relies on the buff you receive when swapping between weapons/stances and takes the bonuses to a whole new level. Scaling up your attack speed, move speed & overall damage output by increasing your crit damage or crit chance. So keep in mind of opting for Pinnacle playstyle, your build will have to revolve around filling up your three bars fast, and swapping stances as much as possible in order to maximize the amount of time you remain in the bonus state.


Control engraving locks out the use of spear and instead will force you to use the Glaive exclusively. This means you will lose all your spear/red abilities in addition to the block/parry skill mentioned above.


If however you are one of those players that prefer to keep it simple and don't like the idea of stance swapping, you should know that the speed of your blue stance will be a lot faster as you prioritize swiftness with temperance as your main stat. Enabling for a more straightforward playstyle, your Glaivier will feel much less locked in when it comes to speed & attack/defensive skills animation.
