The Greataxe is a greataxe in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

This greataxe is a veritable mass of iron. Its weight sends foes flying, but it makes it difficult to handle without inhuman strength.
Any miss makes one very vulnerable, as each swing requires the full force of the body.

AvailabilityEdit

CharacteristicsEdit

The Greataxe is the lightest greataxe and easiest to wield one handed. Otherwise, it is eclipsed by the other greataxes in terms of sheer damage later in the game due to its low scaling. Incidentally, this low scaling makes it a good candidate for elemental augmentation.

The slow moveset and short reach of the Greataxe make it somewhat easy to avoid in PvP.
