    As a pole BM with G16 pole

    you lose the damage spike of axes

    you lose the dps and chi of claws

    you have to swap to axes for one of your most important stuns--but gain a 33% possible stun if demon

    you gain some range

    you lose the ability to purge because you aren't using a R8r/TT99 purge pole

    you lose def levels of R8r def pole

    you gain swag for being a hipster

    Instead, do some more warsong, get a claw mold or something, sell the badges and work on getting a cube neck and a second LG ring, and finish refining your hammers + armor, and get yourself a pan gu.

    I'd think all of those are bigger priorities than a fanciful third G16 weapon, but go ahead; use resources on what you like

    go for it a decent range weapon is use full for those annoying sin's that like to use tackling slash then move out of ur axe range and DD u with +2m range dags plus more damage wen ur switching through weapons for range combo eg drakes ray-smak-farstrike-spirit chaser-drakes ray-far strike etc etc if u can afford and already have decent aps farming gears its a plus to add

    I like using my G16 spear especially during NW. When a caster try to kite me I use smack, demon drake, change to spear and use demon farstrike, if the caster survive, I switch back to axe, use reel in then drake bash and other stun locking skills.

    Manage to kill bunch of equally geared caster this way b:victory

    Why go through the effort? mage bane+triple spark+hf+aoe = dead people if they are not willing to move away from you. Stun locking r9 3rd cast casters is pointless, so i don't even try, i save my chi. If they are not r9 3rd casters, they die easy enough from gof on the axes.

    Didju seriously just recommend using a sword to triple sparking->aoe for kiting casters, added in HF, then followed it with "i save my chi"?

    Btw... HF can easily proc purify and give them holy path =o

    Bms r already op, however with the number of casters and long ranged classes, they seem less so; however, if we get an even more powerful array of weaps...MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA
