      I think the strength of this weapon just lies in how *****ing tanky it is, and that it's buffable. This weapon gives you fire and magic defense. You need only level up Faith, Endurance, Strength and Vitality, and you have dark, lightning, fire AND physical defenses respectively. Just buff this***** with DMB and tank everything. It's literally the perfect tank weapon.. almost.

        Killed the soul of cinder with this in the 1st attempt in my very first game a couple of years back. That was my 1st fight with this weapon too! Remember doing around 400+ damage, 2 handed with a +5 upgrade. At 40+ str and around 18 dex.

            Its size and appearance is more like a dragon claw. Compare to the teeth and claw on the wyvern corpse when you fight Havel.

              R1, kick, R1, jumping R2 seems to be a good combo if u have the stamina for it, I'm not sure though whether the jumping R2 connects or ppl just don't dodge it

                  this weapon at plus 5 with 40 strength is stronger then a heavy great club at plus 10 but its not a big difference i would jsut pick the one you want based of if you want to be a savage with a rock, or a savage with a stick

                      Idk if this is new info or not, but the weapon cannot be parried if two-handed. One-handed tho, it can.

                        Wouldn't it be cool if we fought one of these dragons in a DLC? With a tooth that size, it must have been several times bigger than any dragon we've seen so far.

                          You can combo this weapon's 1-handed light attack into a jumping strong. Deals way more damage than two r1s. Was using this weapon while testing it out but it might work for other great hammers.

                            With the addition of weapon arts, and the Cathedral Knights' mace buff, I was really hoping From would reference the Greek and Phoenician tales involving Dragon's Teeth and give it the same buff.Pretty disappointing. To me anyway.

                                This vs. Smough's18 Apr 2016 20:09  

                                Both weapons seem to have the exact same B scaling (for those who don't know, the scaling letters still have a certain range to them, aka B on one weapon does not necessarily equal B on a different weapon) while smough's has a slightly higher base AR and hence slightly higher bonus AR.Also, smough's has unique 1H and 2H R2s while this has a rather standard greathammer moveset.However, you don't need to exceed the 40 soft cap for this weapon to 1H it, it seems to have slightly lower stamina consumption and you get boosted fire and magic.I'll personally be using smough's over this simply because I need my titanite scales for a different weapon.
