Similar to Katana and Ninja Swords, it's easy to combo attack with Poles on a frequent basis. When using Poles, consider equipping the "Genji Gloves" (which increase the rate of combo attacks) or the "Cat-ear Hood" (which increase a character's speed by 50 and more than doubles the amount of turns a character gets, thus vastly increasing the number of opportunities for a combo attack to occur).

For this class of weapon, the damage output is determined by your character's strength and the Pole's attack rating; however, instead of checking these factors against an enemy's defense, they are checked against the enemy's magick defense! This makes Poles a an extraordinary choice against enemy's without Shell and/or a strong magick defense; you will decimate them.
