Polearms (FFXI)  

Polearms, be they lance or spear or couse, are the preferred weapon of Dragoons, also used in some instances by Samurai, Warriors, and Paladins. Generally faster than other two handed weapons, such as Great Axes, they provide more damage than using a one-handed weapon.

Most polearm weapon skills are physical damage in nature, however a majority of them are also multi-hitters, thus having high accuracy is a recommended trait for anyone using a polearm.
