Overview

Polearms are the spear and lance weapons favored by the Dragoon, and in some cases, Samurai. Polearms are a fairly low delay, average damage two-handed weapon, providing quicker strikes than the other two-handed weapons, but doing more damage than one-handed weapons. Polearms are usually pure damage in terms of stats, but some polearms provide additional support to other stats, most notably accuracy.

There are a few types of polearms, differentiated by their damage-delay ratio and the jobs that can use them. Lances are high-damage high-delay polearms, usable by Dragoons. Couses are average damage and delay polearms that look like shaft-mounted blades, usually seen on the backs of Samurai, and Spears are the lowest damage and delay polearms, usable by many jobs.

Polearm weaponskills are primarily physical, and a majority of these physical weaponskills are multi-hit skills, making accuracy a vital part of the polearm weaponskills.
