Where is the action of applying a polearm called "pounding" anyway? I don't think I've ever seen this before. --Paxed 21:26, 24 January 2008 (UTC)

Apparently it was coined in Shawn Moore's Knight FAQ (I could call this action "applying" but that is too broad; "applying pole-weapons" is both clunky and unversatile. For lack of a better term I will call this "pounding.") Perhaps he should be credited in the article. MysterX 10:32, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

Does pounding train weapon skills? 23:04, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Yes. -- Kalon 00:02, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Lance or polearm or both?

The article isn't quite clear: does this apply to lance, to polarms, or to both? Tjr 10:24, June 6, 2010 (UTC)
