I cant say i've had the pleasure of using the Platoon Lance so i dont know about the TP bonuses that it gives(apparently).

But i will say this. I used the Spear+1 until the the level 30 Royal Squire's halberd which has a dmg of 37 instead of 35. SO i do suggest you upgrade to that, even if you've been using the platoon lance because the halberd has a spear delay, rather than the extended lance delay.

Only having experience with the Spear+1 and not the Platoon Lance i must say that i would think the Spear+1 to be the superior choice from level 24 in. With 2 less damage but a much shorter delay, i would think that you would average out to cause more damage with the Spear+1. Though i could be wrong cause i havent used the platoon lance.

The biggest deciding factor on what to use will come down to availability and gil. Unless you want to have a crack at BCNM 20 for the lance or pay 80k (the price when i could've used it on Siren server) then you are not going to be wanting the platoon lance (unless of course you like to have the best of everything for your level then you'd use it until 30). For me i picked up the Spear+1 of our ls leader for only 10k. Now i did buy it several levels b4 i needed it but i think that if you are a Dragoon and you have a limited list of weapons to choose from, then decided 5 levels early what you want and keep an eye out on the AH. it can save you alot of time.

If you are on the Siren server send me a tell anytime. Especially if you are a Dragoon or Galka. There seem to be too few of each in my world.

P.S. If someone who has had experience with both the platoon lance and the Spear+1 could post up there expereinces with which is better that would be great.

You have a pretty strong opinion on the comparison of the two, especially considering you've never even used one of them.
I don't have enough craft skill

I have a question about the spear +1
It has close to the same damage but a significant amount of less delay than the platoon lance.
I don't know if it gives 12 tp per hit like the platooon lance.. The problem Im having is that it doesn't seem to exist on the Quetzalcoatl server. I've been looking for some time now.. and have just recently started seeing the spear sold.. the store doesnt sell +1's and the AH's in Windy, Sandy, Bastok, and Jeuno haven't sold one since January if I remember correctly. If anyone reading this is on the Quetzalcoatl server and can help I'd greatly appreciate it.. if someone has firsthand knowledge of the spear +1 in regards to being better or worse than the plain spear or platoon lance please respond, or send me a tell in game.
I'm lvl 25 now and am looking to move up to the military spear my first opportunity.
feedback is appreciated.

Peace !!!

Do to the Low Delay I have used this weapon from lvl 24 all the way to 31 and will continue until something in Delay and damage match. After using a Monk for a while I have learned that the Delay is just as if not more important as Damage done, the +1 is just a bonus when attacking.
