(Redirected from Polearm)
Version 0.28: This article may not be up to date for the latest stable release of Crawl.
The Polearms skill denotes how well your character uses long hafted weapons. These weapons tend to deal less damage than other weapon types, and are often very bulky and slow to attack with, but they make up for this by having an inherent reaching ability, able to hit from 2 tiles away. It crosstrains with the Axes skill and the Staves skill.
You may reach with a polearm by pressing v, and any form of autofight (Tab) will do it for you.
List of Polearms
Prior to 0.10, polearms could only reach if they had the reaching brand, which any of them were eligible for.
