"For pvp weapons, get the polearm. We have ONE ability that scales based off our weapons damage, and that is fury swipes, which is a 15% chance per auto to deal 310% weapon damage. That means you want a weapon with the highest damage, not dps. The polearm does ~3.5k top end damage, staff ~1.8k. They do the same dps, but the polearm will cause your fury swipes to hit much harder. They also both have the same stats, so yeah. Get the polearm."
