The Grand Lance is a lance in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

A lance fashioned from rare geisteel. Designed for high-ranking Drangleic knights, hence the decorative design.
Geisteel equipment is of the finest make, but geisteel is so rare that very few of these weapons were actually used in combat.


In Dark Souls II, the lance can be found in a chest located in a room accessible via the crane in the Memory of Orro.

In the SotFS, the lance is found on a corpse just outside the King's Gate found in Forest of Fallen Giants. A Royal Guard stands in front of the gate, but it is possible to avoid confronting it if the player is careful.


The Grand Lance is a strong weapon that is especially useful to those with balanced strength and dexterity.

It has the highest base physical damage of all the lances, and is comparable to the Chariot Lance, which sacrifices some of its damage in favor of bleed build-up.

Like all other lances, the Grand Lance can be considered a heavy spear. As such, it excels in narrow corridors. Due to its nature as a lance, it deals an exceptional amount of poise damage for its attack speed, making it extremely effective at holding choke points against large groups of enemies.

At 40 strength and dexterity, this weapon deals the highest physical damage out of the Lances. It is also one of only two Lances that can be buffed with a resin, the other being the Rampart Golem Lance. It is also relatively light for its damage output.

All of this combines to make the Grand Lance an ideal choice for a purely physical build. But even so, infusing it with elemental damage can also be effective.


At +10, the Grand Lance has 340 damage and C/C scaling
