But why Lance and not just GL?
Mobility, Defense, Punishment, Speed, Verticality, etc.

You really put up a video of safi weapon against banbaro???? Other weapons will get around 3 minutes. If you wanted to show that lance can get fast times there is a video of lance beating the double rajang event in around 6 minutes. Safi weapons helped out lance a ton but it is still one of the weakest weapons in iceborne.
Time isn't the take away here. The potential DPS numbers are. I already stated that I am not a speed runner, and I played like trash.

Lance having low damage affects players at all skill levels.

Being able to clear content effectively is not a counter argument to Lance having low damage compared to other weapons.

When people talk about Lance having low damage, they are accounting for uptime already.

Except people were insinuating that it was practically unusable trash all on its own. The video clip proves otherwise.

i know Readthereal can´t see my messages, anyway still gonna leave this here.
yes, lance does less damage then other weapons, that doesn´t make it trash, the difference ain´t that huge.
i think if you use lance then it´s because it nearly has no bad match ups and you generally gonna have a much more relaxed time hunting then with other weapons.
i just want you guys to imagine fighting stuff like barioth, ruiner or kushala without a care in the world.

EDIT: i also doubt all of you run safi burstcannon on each and every quest, so time ain´t an issue to you guys either.
is Mayonnaise a Jojo reference too?

When every thing is active pokes doing 156, 156, 191 per O poke (not to mention the finisher, or this being with Resentment 4 and no fortitude active) seems fine to me for it being generally the safest weapon, especially when you consider that this weapon can just keep attacking when other weapons have to run away or dive.

I definitely cart less with dual blades than lance

the increased mobility keeps me alive way more often than a shield

Lance requires a lot of investment with skills vs other weps. Guard/up/offensive, handicraft/masters touch, before getting to ur standard dmg/ele/crit skills. Also they really upped the amount of anti lance(Unblockable atks) in dlc.
But its still one of my 3 main/fav weps and it always will be. Offensive guard n counter poking makes hunts feel like boxing matches with constant pressure on weakpoints, its clutch mechanics are excellent too. Its an understated wep , simple n elegant. Like a gun lance but with less anime n more dignity. I recommend trying it out :)
I dont watch much speed running but my fav guy to watch is a jpn lancer , i'll link a vid if i can.

Imagine thinking the Lance is immobile.

It can hop backwards and chain that into an even longer back hop, and then chain that in to a hop while blocking in front of it. So you can hop away from the monster, hop even further away from the monster, then hop away from the monster while still blocking in the monster's direction.

That is just one example, of how the lance can move BTW.

As long as you're not playing Simpson's Hit and Run, lances are fine in my book.
I'll edit almost everything. (edited 1 minute ago)

This is good example of how dominant the wep can be in good hands.

A very tough match up for lance vs shara, makes it look easy. (3.56 Godly charge-pivot k.o)

Not all about fastest times theres a lot of skill on displayed here too.
