A polearm is in the first place a defensive weapon. It's mostly used in the
way to keep your opponent at a distance and to hit or to stab him when he
comes in reach (although stabbing isn't liked to be seen on most cons,
because of the high danger of injuries). A polearm is much more difficult to
handle than for example a sword. On the other hand it is also very confusing
for most players fighting with a sword against someone with a polearm.
Therefore a polearm can be a very strong weapon if you're used to handle it.
