DaS3 - Greataxe

Greataxe is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



Greataxe resembling a hunk of raw iron.

If one posesses the inhuman strength required to lift the weapon, the great heft of its attacks will send foes flying.

However, since every swing makes use of one's entire body, attacks leave the wielder wide open to retaliation.

Skill: Warcry
Let out a spirited warcry that temporarily boosts attack.



Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • On a 40 Strength 40 Dexterity build, this weapon +10 has a total AR of 599 with Heavy infusion (633 2-handed), 621 with Sharp infusion, and 619 with Refined infusion.
  • At 40 Strength, 40 Dexterity and 40 Luck a Hollow Greataxe has a 1-handed AR of 657 (680 2-handed)
  • When infused with Raw and fully upgraded, it has the highest pure physical base damage of any weapon, albeit with no scaling to back it up.

      You can hit SL120 by starting Pyro and going:
      27 VIG
      12 ATT (base)
      30 END
      11 VIT
      33 STR
      9 DEX
      40 INT
      40 FTH
      9 LUCK (base)

      With this stat distribution, the Dark Greataxe has 738AR 1-handed, 759AR 2-handed.

        This weapon is absolutely insane. I've been playing DS3 for nearly 400 hours since I discovered the series last Christmas but never really got around to using this weapon for some reason. Started using it and holy crap is it great. It's the highest damaging non-boss, non-unique weapon and can be attained like 10 minutes into the game and absolutely rocks throughout the game. Currently, at 66Str, 12Dex at +5 it has a two-handed AR of 683, and that's without the buff. It's range is akin to that of a toothpick and it's stamina consumption is quite massive but it has insane damage, knockback and it's buffed 2H Heavy attack really surprises people, even experienced players.

          Total beast of a weapon. You can get this like 15 minutes into your game from the greataxe hollow by the high wall elevator shortcut if you farm for it. Even with the 22 STR to two hand it, if you're not going above this, you can raw it for big damage, or continue down STR and heavy gem it. If you're confident with its short range and high stamina use you can crush the whole game with this, and using it early on makes you feel dirty as *****.

              This thing is terrifying. If you thought having ~600 AR was awesome... Get this, Dark infuse it, have 66/40/40 STR/INT/FAI, add Dark Clutch, then put on a blindfold. Oh yeah, Sacred Oath and Deep Protection too, then shout. Have fun with an AR that can compete with Hyper Dragons while having actual armor.

                  Massive, thick, heavy, and far too rough. It was much too big to be called an axe. Indeed, it was like a heap of raw iron.

                      For any "new" players unfortunate enough to read this comment: if you're building a strength character, regardless of whether they're PvP or PvE in design, this is the weapon for you.

                      You can obtain one as early as "The Highwall of Lothric" if you're willing to grind, but I assure you, it's worth it. Only a handful of early game weapons can compare to the longevity of the Greataxe. The Greataxe can kill The Nameless King with the same ease (AR-wise at least. Player-skill-wise is another matter entirely) that it kills Vordt with. In PvP, this weapon's alt R2 attack (After activating Warcry) can catch many invaders by surprise, both new and old players.

                      Be aware that the Greataxe possess terrible reach and a hefty stamina cost per swing, but the sheer damage it inflicts, as well as the stun aoe of its blows, makes the Greataxe one of the best weapons in the game. Not only is it lighter than the Dark Knight Greataxe, but on a pure Strength build, the Greataxe's AR absolutely trumps the DKG, and unlike the DKG, THE GREATAXE CAN BE BUFFED.

                      Which brings me to my next point. Strength/Faith builds.

                      Now if you're looking for a high AR weapon to buff...

                      ...Look no further. Even if the Lothric Knight Greatsword has higher AR, the split in damage affects your total DPS. Because the Greataxe has the HIGHEST PHYSICAL AR OF ALL non-boss/non-unique weapons, the split damage is significantly lower than the Lothric Knight Greatsword.

                      ...And besides, yield for yield, this is best weapon to pair with Blessed Weapon/Carthus Beacon for straight AR. Ergo: MAXIMUM DPS.

                        I use this with the curse ward greatshield for the weapon art and its just amazing, 36str and 30vit. not done with this build and its already pretty deadly.

                          This weapon has the highest physical damage of all Raw enchanted weapons (at 470)
                          with the new formula for two handing weapon strength requirements, you can 2H it for 22 strength
                          With the Knight's Ring, you can 2-hand it with just 17 STR and 8 DEX and it will still hit like a truck

                            With +10 heavy and 60 str this has a 633 AR (only 14 AR off from BK Greataxe with a 40/40 build), whereas with +10 refined and a 40/40 build it only has 619, making heavy the better choice. This also gives you an extra 11 points to play around with and put in other places. If you're looking to drop a little bit of weight or if you just want the extra points for other things from the BKG and still want to use a greataxe this is a great choice.

                              Upgrade this to +10 and make it heavy, then use Knight Slayer's ring. The only shield I have seen last more than 2 hits is Havel's.

                                This weapon is Top 10 no matter what you infuse on it of ALL weapons. Mostly Top 3, 3rd to Dragonslayer Greataxe, and Demon's Axe comparing axes, but the weapons that DO have higher damage NONE of them cant be buff or infused (other than Lothric Knight Greatsword). Meaning if you take the fact how early you can get this, and it can be infused toward personal playstyle, plus buffed with spell and resins, plus the material need to upgrade it is most common, I'd say this is a Great weapon. Only con I can think of is the moveset is just vertical.

                                    I use it with the smallest female char I made. Called her the silver witch and gave her this axe. I guess what is nice is the surprise it brings to overly aggressive invaders. They seem to believe this weapon is weak and so they go for the backstab. The stun of the swings typically prevents that as it stuns them even if it misses. My favorite moments with this weapon has been when invaders try to parry it. <br/><br/>Something about this thing just makes pvp wins more satisfying overall.
