The Dragonslayer Greataxe is a soul-transposed greataxe in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Thickly imbued with the power of lightning. Use skill to draw upon the techniques used to slay the archdragons.
Skill: Falling Bolt
Hold axe high in air to gather fierce lightning, and smash ground to whip the bolts to the ground.

AvailabilityEdit

Obtained by transposing the Soul of Dragonslayer Armour with Ludleth of Courland.

CharacteristicsEdit

A devastating weapon specifically designed for players who rely on sheer force, the Dragonslayer Greataxe primarily scales with Strength, requiring a heavy investment in this stat to be wielded effectively. It also comes natively imbued with Lightning to provide the player with an elemental offensive alternative. However, the Faith scaling is relatively sub-par, so the weapon is still best utilized on pure Strength builds.

The Dragonslayer's Greataxe has very impressive damage output, making it a powerful weapon for felling normal enemies and bosses alike. As a weapon in the greataxe class, it can deal significant Poise damage to foes, ensuring that any hit that does not kill will still have a high chance of staggering.

If this wasn't enough, the Dragonslayer Greataxe's unique skill, Falling Bolt, is also one of the most destructive ones in the game. It focuses an immense amount of power into a single strike, capable of devastating any enemy it hits, while its wide impact radius also makes it strong for wiping out crowds.

TriviaEdit

  • This greataxe is one of two axe-type weapons to have an "indented" blade, the other being the Winged Knight Twinaxes. From the description of the Twinaxes (which mentions its shape is meant to be able to fit the human body), one can deduce that the Dragonslayer Greataxe was meant to fit a dragon's neck, so as to prevent the target from evading the attack as easily.
  • This weapon a reference to the Dragon King Greataxe in Dark Souls, which had a similar ability to the Dragonslayer Greataxe's skill, but with exceptionally more range. The irony being that in Dark Souls III, it is a weapon that is meant to slay dragons.
