The Dark Lance is a spear that can be found in Shadow Chests in the Underworld. It can also be found in the Obsidian Lock Box found in Obsidian CratesDesktop and Mobile versions and Hellstone CratesDesktop and Mobile versions. It is currently the strongest Pre-Hardmode spear. It can pierce through enemies, and even hit the same enemy multiple times. When used, it gives off light emitting particles that linger for a while, which is useful for fighting in the dark.

Its best modifier is Godly or Demonic. Both modifiers increase the average damage output by the same amount.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Just like the Gungnir has the color scheme of Excalibur, the Dark Lance seems to have the same color scheme as the Night's Edge.
  • This weapon is useful for finding caves due to its long reach and light emitting particles.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • This item can be useful against The Hungry in the Wall of Flesh fight, due to its high damage, speed and piercing capabilities.
