Ive just started experimenting with some lances and though im still rusty, I was wondering how viable theyd be in pvp?

They seem very dangerous but at the same time very easily dodgeable that could lead up to alot of backstabs.

This.

They do a lot of damage, but are slow and risky. They are certainly viable, though not the best.

Like you said yourself. They are quite strong, but also very slow & easy to dodge. They have a really weird hitbox though, i've had several instances where i got hit by a lance when i was behind people trying to roll backstab. Even the Lance wielding enemies in Shulva can hit you like that :/

Yes they are good for backstab fishing and nothing else really.

This video sold me on lances but I have to admit that I still haven't used them in PvP: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p2WZkRniO_8

They're pretty good if used correctly.
Work well for Fashion Souls too.

used to be good especially the stunlock combo. Post-patch doesn't work anymore.

Spear is back again, reminds me of the sks and pipe days in DkS.

With Jester's: top tier, assuming you have good spacing and know how to apply pressure.

If I'm not mistaken, Pate's Spear has a bit of Lance in its moveset while still being an excellent Spear.
