Also Called

  • Enhanced Lancemanship
  • Enhanced Tridentmanship
  • Trident Proficiency
  • Spear Proficiency
  • Sojutsu (Art of the Spear)
  • Qiang (枪: Spear)


Users are able to demonstrate a natural aptitude for the ways of the spear, including variations such as Tridents, Lances, and Javelins or spear-shaped weapons such as fictional spears. They are able to wield a spear with incredible proficiency in speed, power, and skill, allowing them to perform feats such as stopping and deflecting bullets, decimating large objects or areas, cutting through a solid material such as steel, and even hold back their strength to deal damage to their foes without killing them.

The user is able to operate with little or no effort, deliver skillful strikes to weak points with great precision and cut only and exactly what they want. This ability also allows them to become naturally skilled with multiple spears regardless of shape or size to suit their needs in combat. Their remarkably fast weapon control may allow them to bypass obstacles in order to cut their intended target.




  • Striking through solid objects (Bricks, Metals, Lava, etc.) would destroy most conventional weaponry (non-enchanted steel weapons, etc.)
  • A user may be heavily reliant on spear-based combat and can be vulnerable if their spears are destroyed or taken away.
  • May be limited to close range combat, which can have difficulty against opponents that can fight at a distance.
