Wired Lances are a weapon category in Phantasy Star Online 2. They are long-reaching melee weapons wielded by the Hunter class.
The Wired Lance is the Hunter's de facto long-ranged melee weapon. They are blades wired to handles that extend out when swung, enabling them to hit farther than many other weapons of similar capacity. However, unlike the Sword, which is a powerful, short-ranged, slow weapon, the Wired Lance trades power for range.
Wired Lances excel in grappling attacks; many of its Photon Arts involve latching onto an enemy to inflict damage. This can be abused in mob fights to manipulate enemy positions or disable one target while attacking all others. Even if the enemy cannot be grabbed, the Wired Lance latches onto a ball of light instead that performs in the same capacity as a grabbed enemy.
The Wired Lance's Weapon Action is Guard. By pressing the Weapon Action button, the wielder will hold the blades in a guarding stance. If struck by an attack, the damage is greatly reduced, but PP is consumed. However, if you press the Weapon Action button a moment before an attack connects, the attack will be negated completely at no cost to PP. This is known as a Just Guard.
The Wired Lance's Gear Skill is Wired Lance Gear. By striking enemies with attacks, the Gear Gauge increases. When grappling an enemy with a Photon Art, a unit of the Gear Gauge is consumed to boost the power of the attack.
