The Greataxe is a greataxe in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

A greataxe wielded with both hands.
This greataxe, crafted with a gigantic, weighty blade, is designed to inflict heavy damage, and requires inhuman strength to handle.
Each swing of the greataxe requires the full force of the body, leaving the wielder wide open. Mastering this weapon will require the most thorough training of both body and mind.

AvailabilityEdit

Sold by Steady Hand McDuff for 6,200 souls after he is given the Dull Ember.

It is possible for a Raw infused Greataxe +3 to drop from the invader Melinda the Butcher in the Gutter.

Characteristics Edit

The Greataxe, while rather standard, can prove to be a rather solid and efficient weapon. It has the lowest Strength requirement of the greataxes that have the heavy greataxe moveset as well as the lowest weight, making it much easier to use for lower level builds. It has the highest durability of all the greataxe class weapons, being tied with the Gyrm Greataxe at 80. Although the Drakekeeper's Greataxe has longer reach and better scaling, the standard Greataxe is made available much earlier in the game and has the same moveset.
