Genshin Impact: 10 Best Polearms, Ranked

Polearms in Genshin Impact have been gaining more and more popularity thanks to the release of Zhongli and now Xiao. Even more interesting, the polearm class only has three different characters in it, with Zhongli being a defense focus character, while Xiangling and Xiao can be used as the main DPS.

This makes it a bit harder to recommend polearms, as the class is currently more divisive than others, players who are using Zhongli should be especially considerate of how they are building him up and try to pick a polearm from this list that will compliment his artifact set.
