The Demon's Great Hammer is a great hammer in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Demon weapon built from the stone archtrees. Used by lesser demons at North Undead Asylum.
This hammer is imbued with no special power, but can merrily beat foes to a pulp, providing you have the strength to wield it.

AvailabilityEdit

  • One can be obtained by defeating the Asylum Demon the first time it is encountered.
  • One per playthrough can be obtained by trading a Sack to Snuggly the Crow.

CharacteristicsEdit

Despite claiming to be made of archtree wood and being ultra heavy, this weapon is still outclassed in almost all aspects by the Great Club and is usually not considered viable. With a very similar damage rating, as well as a similar move set, the Demon's Great Hammer (DGH) only boasts slightly more reach than the Great Club.

Technically, the DGH has slightly higher base damage but only has B scaling at +15 compared to the Great Club's A scaling at +15, making it a secondary choice for a strength build. The weight is also a potential problem, as the DGH has almost double the weight of the Great Club, whilst still dealing less damage.

Notes Edit

  • It is common for players seeking this weapon in NG to choose Black Firebombs as their starting gift, as it will greatly aid in taking down the Asylum Demon. In NG+ and beyond, players begin with all of their weapons and armor, making the endeavor considerably easier.
