They have the fastest attacks of all the weapons and good forward reach.
A Polearm user's Normal Attack chain typically consists of 5-6 rapid melee attacks.
There are currently only 5 Polearm users in the game, and they have drastically different Charged Attacks, though most follow the theme of lunging forwards, dealing damage to opponents along the way (Xiao is the only exception to this rule, due to performing an upward thrust). Xiangling, Hu Tao and Rosaria are able to drive their Polearms through enemies with their Charged Attacks, Dough-Fu, Secret Spear of Wangsheng and Spear of the Church, respectively. Zhongli is able to phase through enemies in a hail of spears with his Charged Attack using the Rain of Stone, while Xiao is able to perform an upward thrust, lifting enemies into the air with his Charged Attack using the Whirlwind Thrust.
A polearm user's Plunge Attack does AoE damage that also has a shield-breaking effect (like Claymores or Geo). This is demonstrated when Xiao casts his Bane of All Evil, which can break the shields on Abyss Mages, Hilichurls, Mitachurls, etc. Polearm users' plunge attacks can also be used to mine ores in this way.
All polearm users so far have a similar animation when plunging, which involves them spinning downward like a drill.
