The Dragonslayer's Crescent Axe is an axe in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

The beloved black axe of the gallant Shieldless Lothian, formerly of Forossa.
No warrior matched the ferocity of unbeatable Lothian, but he abruptly retired from the battlefield and was never heard from again. Some say that he grew tired of the frailty of human foes, and set off to slay the legendary dragon.


Found, alongside the Golden Falcon Shield, on a corpse in the Shaded Woods. The corpse is located on the path to the Shrine of Winter, behind a non-respawning Flexile Sentry.


The Dragonslayer's Crescent Axe is an adaptable weapon, as it has good base damage for its attack speed and will perform well both with and without Infusions.

It's a good choice for players looking for a good elemental Strength weapon as it can deal high physical damage along with a respectable amount of lightning damage even if the player has low Faith. This, combined with the Axe's straight forward moveset, makes for an excellent weapon that will prove useful in most situations.

Lightning is generally the most effective infusion for this weapon. As with most lightning weapons, the player can also use Gold Pine Resin or the Sunlight Blade miracle to drastically increase the weapon's damage output.
