Because Lancea is not that popular similar to Kali except Kali section has a few active people interacting there.

There are very few Lancea players out there and even fewer who are actually using it as a main. I'm a Lancea player myself and from first-hand experience, I know why people don't like the class.

Not that I dislike the Lancea class, but personally it has no charm to me. I did try it several months later after its release to give the benefit of the doubt but I still went meh. (shame)

Lancea isn't an easy class to play, but still fun

Other 1st spec doesn't exist yet (tense)

It's really fun to play, but very tricky indeed.

I don't actually main a lancea but I treat her as one since I geared her properly, not uber geared though like my GM and Smasher. Lancea is not a newbie-friendly classes but she's quite fun to use. I enjoy using my SB for pvp since I was planning to make it a pvp character from the start, just for fun. Though in pvp, lancea is even much harder to use, especially in the case of Sting Breezer.

Most probably the devs are not going to create a new branch for lancea. Lancea was released a year ago yet until now she doesn't have another specialization except for piercer. Machina is already released and there is still no news for update for lancea's other branch. From these, it's obvious that devs don't care about lancea anymore and won't be making a new specialization for her.

Well, I have been using Flurry for sometimes, it is indeed difficult to play in any team PvP; whereas in 1v1, it takes you time to hone your skills and yes, the combo is quite satisfying.

Besides, classes thread nowadays are generally isolated, so it is quite normal.
Plus the fact that even developer has lost interest in developing Lencea furthermore, because players in general, tend to prefer OP classes, while Lencea herself, is not a facerolling class, it takes you skills to utilise.

It's pitiful to see Lencea ended up like this, honestly. It has numerous hidden potential waiting for development yet the developers and players decided not to use it because on one side, they are whoring for profits; on the other side, they are whoring for damage and the ease of usage, which is retarded, in offensive mean.

because few take interest on it that's why it feels like a ghost town
but I'm one of those who find lancea class fun to play it may be hard but that's what make lancea interesting

kinda sad that most people don't see her charm (T.T)

^ Same reasoning here, although I don't main my SB, I do gear her to the point she can do at least VN Abyss and VON Normal, because she is very fun to play. (:D)

well
i created lancea back when the free level boost. the only reason i make one is cuz of the hi gesture.
then went hiatus.

when i came back, im pretty bored nothing to do with my lully(phys) n firy(maj) tried out lancea.
so i just figured out her skills are captivating, colourful.

there are some lancea-hypers during its release but none heard now so idk the status. still i liked her.
in pvp tested that sb id rather play it as supportive compated to 1v1/frontliners.

yep. SB is better used as support because of her lack of SA. Put her in the frontlines and most of her skills will just get evaded or worst, get cancelled. Her slow casting and low damage really makes her not useful for rushing or close combat. Attacking from behind the safety of other people will ensure your skills will actually hit.

Piercing + Poking is the only good burst dps an SB has. But it deals tons of damage.
