Lance Formation is a unit ability on certain Bretonnian cavalry which allows them to change the shape of the unit (ie: change formation) into a lance/arrow shape. This formation gives them stat bonuses and allows them to pierce through enemy lines. Bretonnia are the only race in the game who can change formation in this way.


Forming a wedge before the charge enables mounted Knights to smash through enemy lines, causing great disarray among their ranks.
