The Force Lance[1] is a relatively strong 1-handed polearm. While a branded demon trident will deal more damage per turn, this artefact can knock enemies back, and can be found much earlier than a demon trident.

Knocking enemies into a wall, impassible terrain (like deep water or lava), or another enemy will cause some extra damage.

This artefact is more likely to spawn in the early game, where it is more likely to be useful.


  • The Force Lance unrand was added in 0.30, named after the spell of the same name.
