Dragonslayer's Axe is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



Axe favored by Creighton the Wanderer, infamous deserter of the Knights of Mirrah.

Called Dragonslayer's Axe for the lightning that pulsates within its blade, but Creighton used it to slay men.

Skill: Warcry
Let out a spirited warcry that temporarily boosts attack, and pierce through shields to inflict direct damage.



Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • Be sure to complete Sirris´ questline to the point, where you fight off an invader (Creighton) in her World. The summoning sign to help her is located at the bridge to Irithyll, where you first encounter Sulyvahn's Beast.
  • Blessed infusion adds Faith scaling to both physical and Lightning damage.
  • Was previously named the Dragonslayer Crescent Axe in Dark Souls 2.



Location/Where to Find

  • From the Church of Yorshka bonfire that you come across in Irithyll of the boreal valley head into the graveyard area to the left of the bonfire. Here head straight to the item on a tree and go to the right until you can't go any further. If you have an ember active you will be invaded by Creighton and he will drop the axe. Invasion is not possible if the Pontiff boss has been defeated.

      This thing with a lightning infusion is the exception to the “straight swords are better than axes” rule. 18 Strength, 14 Dex and 40 faith, i’m not even at sl120 yet, and straight swords haven’t beaten me once when I’m invaded. R1 spammers find it intimidating when the warcry heavys chase them down as they’re roll spamming, I guess.

          I don't understand the hate for twinking. I spent couple days running through Untended, Ashes, and Ringed City all with SL 15 and a +2 weapon to get spec'd up. It was hard as shit and now I want to reap the rewards of welcoming new players in style. Haters gonna hate I guess.

              Since this weapon already does lightning damage (in addition to physical damage), if you buff it with Carthus Flame Arc will it do both lightning AND fire damage (in addition to physical damage)?

                  People that use this in the starting area, along with the hornet ring or dark hand suuuure are original. This is literally all they're doing for hours on end is invading and harassing new characters... Its rather sad that this is what the communitys become as its worser aspects.

                      Can be a very hard hitter at low soul levels with a lightning buff, but the range is abysmal against weapons with reach and the speed is just slow enough to have trouble against something quick.

                      It is definitely not the end-all low level PvP weapon some people claim it to be, there are a lot of builds that can really destroy someone with this axe. In general I'll gladly take 20% less AR for something I can land more hits with.

                        This is one of my all-time favorite weapons, once I got ahold of it in DS2 it's my weapon of choice, plus I was a huge fan of Creighton. I created a pretty Gnarly Herald build with this weapon, Raw+10, for higher physical damage, and due to there being no faith stat for it, use lightning blade to increase the already present lightning damage, and scale the buff with your faith. Having a 110 buff chime is also great. My miracles are: Tears of Denial, Sunlight Spear, Bountiful Sunlight, and Lightning Blade. At 3 swings of my Dragonslayer, I do 1k damage, typically. I can swing it 6 maximum times, making my maximum damage around 2500 with warcry active as well. Wielding this one handed is the way to go.

                          While its (high) base damage, and low stat requirements usually leads it to being used in PvP, it does have some PvE use.

                          Like I said, it has low stat requirements of 18/14 (12/14 when two handed), so this is doable on an SL1 (with rings), and useful in this and other situations where stats aren't good enough to get good scalings (namely lightning).
