Lost Ark‘s Glavier – also known as Lance Master – is a Martial Artist with a difference, but to master her you’ll need to know the best PvE and PvP builds, as well as Engravings. Here’s a full rundown of the skills you’ll need.

When it comes to Martial Artists, Lost Ark‘s roster of melee-based Advanced Classes continues to expand exponentially.

Joining this now five-man roster of highly trained combatants is the Glavier, also known as Lance Master in Korea. Added alongside the game’s April Update, this deadly femme fatale makes use of her trusty glaive and spear to shred through the hordes.

Mastering her isn’t exactly easy, as she has three different playstyles that utilize all of her weapons either individually, or in tandem. So, to help you out, here are the best builds and Engravings for the Glavier in Lost Ark for PvE and PvE.

Glavier, Scrapper, Soulfist, Striker or Wardancer?

Of Lost Ark’s Martial Arts classes, Glavier is by far the hardest. Making use of two different stances (Flurry and Focus), you’ll need to juggle your attacks to chain together for flawless combos. Of course, you can focus entirely on one weapon (spear or glaive), but her true power is unleashed if you can seamlessly flit between both.

We’d argue that, unless you’ve played the likes of Monk in other MMORPGs or are really willing to put in the work, you stick to one of the game’s four other Advanced Classes.

Soulfist is a completely different Martial Artist as it makes use of ranged attacks and magic, whereas Scrapper and Striker very much fall in line with the traditional melee bruiser build. As always, though, we advise that you play a character you gel with because, after all, you’re stuck with them!
