A lance is a weapon usually carried by knights[1] and other mounted warriors.[2] Using this weapon on horseback gives them an advantage against enemies that are on foot.[1]

In World of Warcraft

The Argent Tournament makes use of the lance as a requirement to activate a jousting mount. Several varieties exist:  [Argent Lance],  [Alliance Lance],  [Horde Lance]. All are equivalent for purposes of allowing access to a jousting mount.

 [Twilight Firelance] is used during questing in Mount Hyjal.
