    Neithier. Rapiers are best for PvP since although their base attack is weak, skills like flurry have huge damage modifiers, in the thousands. This is for single target attacks. If you really want to AoE then polearms it is.

    Polearms are best for PvM though. Good damage and large AoE attacks.

    im using saber guard for my fighter =P

    nice evasion and though it only hits 2 enemies at a time..with a enchanted pioneer's weapon that isn't a problem at all

    plus i can kill boss pretty quickly with epee guard and saber guard..

    different skill cool downs but able to use both level 16 skills quickly

    Maybe at low levels that will work. At higher levels you will be insta raped by both elemntalists and muskeeters.

    Whether or not polearms are the "best" for PvM depends entirely on your team.

    With the addition to Low guard the sabre is the best PvP stance since most people tend to use Musks, MA's, Ele's which are all light armor toons and low guard does double dmg to all light armor
