The Dragon King's Lance is described to be a lance belonging to the powerful and long lost Dragon King. Lances are a long weapon used by cavalry soldiers during the medieval times, and it has a long range that allows it to hit enemies from a distance than most other melee weapons that require the wielders to be close to their opponents. The lance's main color is yellow and has a red rope that is tied in various parts of the weapon. It's presumably made from the king's will as described in the Frontier Greatsword page or solidified fire as the description implies that it is burning.
When equipped, its normal poke-based attacks consumes around 1-3 stamina points. Each hit lasts around 1-2 seconds, enabling the players to quickly poke and taunt their opponents, however, the players' stamina will deplete quickly if it used in a reckless manner. The Dragon King's Lance is technically a rapier-styled weapon because of its animation and forward lunge, but many consider it its own weapon due to its very long frame and unique look.
The special ability of the Dragon King's Lance is titled 'Dragon's Charge', which, upon activation, has the player hold the lance back as they charge their hit for half a second. Then, the tip of the lance will emit flames as the player to move similar to the way a wielder of Funky Driftlander charges, hitting any enemies in their way. The special ability has a base damage of 900 and takes 100% of Ranged bonuses.
- It is one of the only melee weapons that receives only ranged damage bonuses.
- As the Dragon King's Lance gains ranged damage bonuses and has the highest potential damage without any cost in bullets, this weapon is a great secondary weapon for any ranged player.
- In mythology, certain regions depict dragons as powerful rulers respected and feared by humans. The leaders of these dragon cults would usually have a fierce dragon-related weapon, which is a possible reason why it is a lance.
- During the Balance Update [v1.31], the Dragon King's Lance's base damage was increased from 375 to 465 points, making it an even more favorable melee weapon for ranged users.
