Main / Skills / Polearms
Polearms is the skill for using polearm weapons. Polearms give double damage against mounted moving creatures. They are two-handed, so cannot be used with a shield.
Higher skill in polearms increases both hit chances and parry chances. The main Polearms skill helps with all types of polearms, but the sub-skills for each polearm type only help when using those types of polearms.
