Hey guys, sorry if this has come up before but I checked stickies and recent posts and couldn't find the answer.
Just started levelling my SAM and was wondering in what situations does using a Polearm beat out GK? As my main is DRG I have 8/8 Polearm merits which will certainly help a lot, but in general which weapon is better for which situations, on the way and at 75?
Obviously Polearm has an advantage on Piercing weak mobs, but at 75 for Colibri would a Polearm SAM beat out a GK SAM? I was doing a ODS run a few days ago on my DRG/WHM with a friend on his SAM and I noticed that while my WS were doing well over 1k on average without Angon, his WS were tending to do a lot less; is Polearm likely to be better on weaker/lower level mobs like this?
Just looking for a general idea on when to use Polearms, any input is much appreciated.
