Effie's Lance (エルフィの大槍 Erufi no dai yari, lit. Elfi's Large Lance) is a Lance that is introduced in Fire Emblem Fates. Eponymously named after Effie, Effie's Lance is a powerful Lance in terms of Might, sporting the second highest might of all Lance-based weapons in Fates (behind the Waterwheel by 3 might). However, the Lance's usefulness is marred by its weakness to follow-up attacks, let alone the shaky accuracy. However, if Effie's Lance is being used by a character with the Wary Fighter skill, the vulnerability to follow-up attacks will be nullified as long as the wielder possesses the skill.
Weak to follow-up attacks and makes them more difficult to perform (-5 effective Spd).
- Interestingly, Effie's Lance reuses the model for the Awakening version of Gradivus, retextured to match Effie's color palette. However, unlike Gradivus, this lance can neither be thrown nor used to fully restore its wielder's health.
