A polearm is a large two-handed edged weapon, usually in the form of a long metal or wood pole a bit taller than a person, with an axe-like head. Polearms are the least common of all melee weapons. Names such as Pike, Spear, Halberd, and Harpoon all indicate a polearm.

Sometimes a polearm will have a spear-like point or mace-like protrusions, but in combination so as to not qualify as a spear and too long a handle to be a mace. Polearms generally attack very slowly, but cause large amounts of damage on a hit.

Polearms can be used by monks, hunters, paladins, warriors, druids, and death knights.

In Legion Edit

Legion-Logo-Small Prior to Legion-Logo-Small Legion, the hunter's rarely benefitted from a melee weapon, so a hunter would rarely choose polearm because it would block the auto-shot and many other shooting-based skills. However, as of Legion-Logo-Small Legion, Ability hunter camouflage Survival Hunters have abilities designed around polearms.
