One of the first two characters introduced in Vindictus, a free-to-play action MMORPG from Nexon America, Lann was also the first male character to be introduced. Often appearing wielding two swords, Lann is a popular quick-striking class. When the Fomors destroyed the hometown of Lann, he came southeast to Colhen, seeking to join the Crimson Blade Mercenaries. Though he speaks little of his past, his commitment to mastering his weapons is clear.
Lann’s preferred weapon are the Twin Swords, which allow him to close quickly into combat and deal swift strikes to his opponent. He may also use Twin Spears, short one-handed weapons that have a longer range and stronger strike than the swords, but require more strategy to use.
Unlike Fiona, who will spend most of her time in front of an enemy and taking blows, Lann’s strategy is different: get in, strike, and then get out of the way. Because of this, counter attacks and armor durability are not in Lann’s favor; his focus instead remains on agility, speed, and executing combos.
Both of Lann’s weapons allow him to dodge out of the way, but with different benefits. Twin swords allow Lann a measure of invincibility with the Slip Dash, and let him reposition himself close to the enemy afterward for another strike. Twin spears, on the other hand, only get a basic roll away from combat, which may not be as swift or strategic in the midst of battle. Twin spears get the added benefit, however, of boosting their damage and critical strikes at the cost of their health, as well as an AoE attack.
Regardless of Lann’s weapon choice, it is key for any player to manage their stamina carefully. Lann’s best skills and combinations use a hefty amount of stamina, and players can exhaust themselves before completing combos. The result is not only less damage done to the enemy; it also leaves Lann in a situation where he may not be able to move out of the way of an enemy afterward.
– Lann’s best stats are Strength, Agility, and Will.
– Slip Dash Proficiency is only useful for Twin Swords. If you plan on going Twin Spears, reserve your AP for other skills. The same is true of Smash: Thousand Needles.
– Make sure to specialize in Combat Mastery and Critical Hit.
– Light armor is generally preferred for Lann, as he should not be getting hit often.
