      axes and maces got no love in the dlcs. at least axes got one new one in the dlc, but it is basicly just the battle axe with a slightly different warcry and better str scaling. maces didn't even get a new weapon in the dlcs.

        Use warcry + uncharged R2 to annihilate every foe in pvp. You even have hyper poise to trade with UGS - Users or stop the R1 - Spammers in this game. Millwood Axe is especially good for countering spammy or very resilient adversaries.

          Do you guys think that the new axe shown in the 5 minutes gameplay trailer is going to be better than the man serpent hatchet or just having a new weapon art?

          • not as bad as those below me say14 Sep 2016 19:04  

            axes may not be overpowered (most of the stuff sucks) the thrall axe for example can decipate all kinds of ***** if you use it right, dragonslayers axe has good lightning damage for a light weapon and anything else here can be made useful if you know what your doing

            • quite easily the worst category of weaponry, seconded by whips10 May 2016 15:50  

              seriously though just leave, mate. the *****in straight swords are better, still ***** tho mate.

              • FROM basically killed axes and hammers08 May 2016 08:00  

                Both axes and hammer class weapons don't interrupt enemy attacks in PvP, have lower swinging speed and moderate damage when compared to spam-swords, and to top it all they don't have hyper armor on their attacks making them trade inefficiently with already mentioned swords and other weapons. Hyper armor on R2s would have been nice at least.<br/>They can do well in PvP, but only if you land a parry or if your opponent is backed into a corner. In other cases, you are just handicaping yourself.

                  Tbh, not liking the variety of axes in this game, if anything greataxes are the best and have very good damage. Might as well go greataxes if you're building strength right?
