In-Game Description

Well-used old bronze battle axe with a long hilt and a crescent-shaped blade.
One of the blessed weapons of the Way of White. The Crescent Axe is bequeathed to cleric warriors who have proven their faith.

AvailabilityEdit

CharacteristicsEdit

The Crescent Axe deals both Magic and Regular physical damage, and it scales highly with Faith. Although this weapon can potentially have a high Attack Rating, it tends to perform less favorably because it has to factor in two defenses when calculating its final damage. This can also work to one's advantage as no shield blocks 100% of both damage types; causing some damage to bleed through.

The horizontal wide arcing swings make this weapon particularly effective in unlocked play. It also discourages backstabs, as it will track an enemy as they try to circle around, provided they are not stacking Poise.

It possesses a higher than normal Divine Auxiliary Effect, making it particularly effective against the Skeletons of The Catacombs.
