Battle[edit | edit source]
Its Bone Smash ability is especially dangerous to a target with low health, dealing double damage to them and likely KOing them. Take care to keep the party's health up while fighting these enemies. Fire and Light attacks and restorative magic are all very effective on the offense against these creatures.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
lancer was a type of cavalryman who fought with a lance. Lances were used in mounted warfare by the Assyrians as early as 700 BC and subsequently by Greek, Persian, Gallic, Han-Chinese, nomadic and Roman horsemen. The weapon was widely used in Asia and Europe during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance by armoured cavalry, before being adopted by light cavalry, particularly in Eastern Europe. In a modern context, a lancer regiment usually denotes an armoured regiment.A
In the Final Fantasy series, a lancer is usually synonymous with Dragoon.
