    Any non-barb builds that use Polearms?

    I think polearms are fun, but not enough people use them. So I'm wondering if there are any builds that use them (aside from WW Barbs).

    While any class can use them the two I hear most about are the Wereform druid and the Sorceress. I think there's a guide floating around in the Sorceress forum as there's a few ways to play her out. Oh, and I just remembered about a third, the melleemancer. I suppose a charger could also use one.

    Actually I didn't think of assassins, that would be interesting to see. I meant Paladin's using the charge skill.

    An asn can use a cruel war pike (spear) or an elite polearms class wpn (unique or with a godly runeword in it) without really actually using the wpn itself: my trapper has such a wpn on switch when she needs to use BF for helping with her merc/shadow killing LI monsters in Hell. The only problem is how many stat points you want to invest in her str to pick up a highest possible dmg stick!

    I'm not sure if there are any chars that consider polearms as their BEST weapons, but i can tell you for sure they are the most used merc weapons. also, my LLd pally used a polearm+charge to finish of any runners or wussy duellers, even though he is a zealot

    A Palazon can use Passion Polearm, and any Tankazon can use any polearm. The only thing is that you are limited to only a few high resist armours to make up for the lack of same from shields.
