Are polearms superior to other weapon style to a significant degree? Are they better for tanking or DPS? Better in RvR?

Never played an Armsman back in the day, was always Midgard.

You can check all the style growth rate here:

For example: Defender's Rage (on-style) has a 1.399 growth rate

Armsman Polearms are very slow weapons, slower than 2-handers, which means you hit harder.

The only 2-hander which is as slow as a polearm at 6.00 SPD is Apocalypse.
Reminder to Self: Quality over Quantity, what is the Value here?

Pole has big growth rate styles, and great utility with anytime snare, and fairly moderate endo usage.

And in Caledonia, against untemplated enemies, with 20% relic bonus, and lucky crits, you can really feel pleased with yourself :lol:
