A glaive has reach, so a character wielding it can make attacks other than opportunity attacks on enemies either 1 or 2 squares away.
Ardents, avengers, barbarians, battleminds, fighters, paladins, rangers, wardens, and warlords are proficient with all military melee weapons, including the glaive. Assassins and swordmages are proficient with military heavy blades, including the glaive.
Other classes do not have proficiency with the glaive as a class trait, but any character can become proficient by taking a Weapon Proficiency feat.
