    This is hard to answer, Because when it comes to dungeons like hidden a spear lann is needed to make the kill happen quick But when doing Irukul spear lanns are not that much wanted and Fiona are the ones to look for. That IS what i thought until i went into Irukul and saw a spear lann surving and beating the crap out of him and he barely ever stopped his spin spin ftw idk how he did it but it looked amazing. So i think that a Pro Spear lann > Pro Sword lann.

    Not a Vindictus player (yet, maybe sometime in the future if I ever get a big enough urge to download it), but there's a simple philosophy to DPS in any game, one that most non-DPS will point out and only the good DPS will remember:

    Dead DPS is no DPS.

    Regardless of which of Lann's weapon paths you choose, just take the time to play around with understanding how his fighting style works with them before bulldozing into the higher difficulties. Sword Lann's safer, Spear Lann's faster. If you're a team player, pick the one you know you can be the biggest credit to the party with. Emphasis on you, know, and you.

    spear lanns die fast beccause of fury. some spear lanns also die fast because they stay in one spot and wait to get hit.

    like yo, yu can freaking move when yu spin2win ._.

    its a matter of knowing ur limits really. untill boat 5 (except for irukul which killd me enough for me to buy my ivory weapon instead of hunt for it)the game is spear lann heaven then when u hit hilder forest the whole thing fails for u. first u hit zygra which rapes u in 2 hit, and oh he does 2 hit in a row. then u get Tanou which will DEFIENTLLY rape a spear lann on first run(sword would fail too on first try) then u get Klaus in shady forest which is just hell on earth.

    boat 5
    then i use swords on irukul -still fail quite a lot (give up learning his combos)
    zygra -bought my sword fragments fawk him i tried dashing but i'm always half seconds off (cant match his rythm)
    tanou- friggen eazy with sword lann this become my favorite Battle of all tim, but i learned how to do it with spear lann later, that maked em like this even mroe
    klaus- hell no, i can last a up to good 5 minutes with sword lann on him, but spear alnn is defiently a no no

    boat 6 and beyond
    spear lann heaven except for:
    karkish- kinda tough but if u got a party chaining him u can still spear lann him
    black hammer-never got a weapon past +5 so i donno about how awesome u will be but DO NOT SPEAR LANN THIS
    larken- hell no, so spear alnn permitted
    NOTE: titan since most of damage is done during the time the is chained spear lanns are welcome if u know how to survive enough to get to when he is chained. DONT BE A ASS HOLE AND LURE THE BOSS EVERY WHERE BALLISTA PEOPLE ( me) HATES THAT

    boat 7-appears like spear lann heaven
    boat 8-no idea

    WELL.

    Let's talk a little bit about the Spear Lann first.
    This is the highest DPS class if they just never died.
    1) Fury Infusion. It gives a whole 900 attack, and raises your crit rates. Almost every spin is a crit with FI on. That's quite a bit of extra damage. Not only that, but you can land a Gliding Fury / Lightning Fury every couple of seconds.
    2) Smash Mastery. Since every spin is a smash, this skill is much more appreciated as a spear Lann. More Damage.
    3) Because dodge roll is a smash, you can dodge a monster's attack, barely scraping his side. If a crit activates, you can come back for a Gliding Fury and Lightning Fury.
    4) Spinning. Even without taking any of this into account, spinning does a lot of damage.

    Now keep in mind that Fury Infusion does take away some HP. It's not too much, but seeing as it only lasts for 14 seconds, it stacks fast, and you'll be down to 1 HP in no time. Also, you don't get slip dash, therefore no invincibility frames.
    Remember, a Sword Lann is better than a Dead Lann.
    Spear Lanns require skill to play later on. A lot of it is repetition and memorization of bosses' ques. But some talented Lanns can do some pretty insane things. Sorry for the terrible quality, but watch this:



    As for Sword Lanns, they aren't weak, but they aren't your most powerful class, either. They are much easier to survive on, and therefore in higher level dungeons, this is typically the type of Lann you want in your party, as most people aren't as skilled as the Lann from the last video.

    tl;dr
    Both are good. Spear hits higher if you can survive. Sword is a safer choice. Exceptions exist. Choose whichever is most fun. Peaceout.
