So as a lancer , which is best? On the patch notes it only states that intense weapons give more attack OR healing OR aggro, while keen give more crit rate and quick better attack speed. But i don't get what that means , seriously , are these base enchantments? Are they Enchantment bonuses in the +x rows, are they the +10-+12 bonuses? If the latest is the true , does that mean that an intense lance could have healing on the last 3 enchants or a staff could have more power , or maybe a bow with more aggro?

If it is refering to the +x enchant lines does that mean that intense weps cannot be rolled for the attack speed bonus and that quick weps cannot be rolled for the attack bonus?

If it's base , what excactly are the diferences?

Why is this so unclear and frustrating to understand :/ . The only way for 1 player to find out which is the best for his class is to get all 3 types after spending hundreads of MES masterworking to see the +10-+12 diference to rule it out and then do endless rerrolls [Assuming that there is no obvious change in base stats , and that there is not 3 tottally diferent "Intense wonderholme" weapons].

Just got an intense Lance last run, but i find it hard to invest in it with all the mes, and the alkahests and the fodder and the spellbind , just so i can get something better a few runs afterwards .

So , does anyone know how this works excactly? Can someone from the staff provide more information? Perhaps a few screen shots?Something? Anything?

It's really not that hard to understand, the base stats for all weapons are the same, just the modifiers are a bit different.

So you probably want quick unless you think that 14 crit / 9.3% enrage damage is worth it for intense.

Disclaimer: I don't play lancer, but quick seems to be the better choice here.

The differences beetween intense,keen and quick is probably in base bonus, not in rerollable or +10/+12 bonus.

When in doubt, go for attack speed.

Keen is the best. That 30% crit damage is a unique stat only found on the weapon. You can cover for the extra 4% speed through rolls on your rings and gloves.

If you can clear wonderholme right now as lancer, there is no reason to invest anything into gear meant for PvE. Gear up your DPS alts instead.

A "perfect" roll for a keen lance would be attack speed, overall damage, and crit damage.

There is logic behind choosing crit rate for that third slot instead, but that is up to individual decision.

You can roll any of the possible stats on that chart into any of the weapons. I believe that includes those healing stats.

General guidelines for lancer gear choices
-Forget about hunting for aggro stats. The zerker will pull aggro off you no matter what.
-Stack attack speed until you reach the magic number of 20% so you can combo properly in PvP. If you have high latency you will want more attack speed.

Depends how it compares with pvp weapon since now you have just over all dmg on pve weapon so need to see how it plays out.
