Millwood Battle Axe is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3. It is part of the Ashes of Ariandel DLC



Battle axe wielded by Millwood Knights. Its blade is blessed by the symbol of the Ethereal Oak

A hefty axe normally wielded by the mightiest of warriors.

Skill: Warcry

The unique warcry of the Millwood Knights entailed a leap straight toward the enemy and a fearsome roar.



Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Buffed and Infused.
  • Upgraded with Titanite.
  • Amazing when used on a Strength build since it's buffable and has an A scaling in Strength when infused with a Heavy Gem.
  • The weapon art lunge can be handy for heavy or overburdened character since the leap can be used regardless your Equipment Load.



Location/Where to Find

  • Looted from a corpse at the top of the broken Millwood tower. From the first bonfire (Snowfield bonfire), go down to the ice trap and into the forest full of wolves. After killing the wolves, go down to the edge and follow the path to the left, you will enter an open area with ruins and wandering Millwood Knights, the tower is unmissable. Enter the tower and climb the ladders and climb the stairs until you get to the very top of the tower. From here you have to drop to a plank then fall down to a dead Millwood which the battle axe will be on.

      Quite a special weapon to me as I had a strength invasion build in 2017 which had 15 maxed out weapons yet I reached 99 in all of the covenants (over months) while using this axe at least 90% of the entire time

        When I saw warcry as WA I thought, typical battle axe, yeah, I was wrong, this is some of the most useful WA in the game. You can even use it to close the distance just like you would a dagger after you fp is fully drained. After discovering how good this weapon is, I no longer rock heavy weapons in PvE. I can't see the point, this things dps and only weighing 6.5 units makes possibly the most damaging pure physical weapon in the game. One thing that really surprised me is that with a sharp gem on my dex build, this is still a very viable option. I'm only at 30 dex and the weapon is only +8 and I have B dex scaling while still having a little bit of strength. Very good all out weapon that I never see people using in PvP for some reason, but I have consistently good results. I feel as though this weapon has been overlooked by a lot of people.

          Location is incorrect. That is where you find the Millwood Shield. You buy the Battle Axe with the Captain's Ashes.

            Seriously good strength weapon, does nearly claymore dmg while swinging way faster. Great in PVE when you have boss trouble with a larger weapon like a GH, and it hits like a chaos-infused-truck in PVP

              Correction. You don't actually get the full effect of the weapon art at zero FP. Your character will do the sprint, and the axe will glow red like it's buffed, but your AR will remain the same. You have to have some FP left for the buff and R2 attack you get with the buff. However, this is rarely a problem as you normally only buff for hard enemies and bosses, or when you are playing PvP. Best weapon in the game.

                In my opinion this is the first weapon you should upgrade to +10. This is for any character build, this axe is seriously that good. I still get by fine at NG+4 with the refined version of this weapon. It's weapon art is insanely useful. Even though it consumes FP like nearly all other Weapon Arts, this will still work completely normally at 0 FP. The stamina free quick sprint that can stunt enemies and the natural damage buff given by the weapon art is extremely useful in both PvE and I've had a lot of success using this weapon in PvP as well, including the insane SL351+ fights. The unnaturally fast swings of this powerful axe is responsible for massive DPS. This has been displayed in a number of videos online. So if you are new to the game or just the DLC, at a requirement of 15 str, and 10 dex, it is completely worth putting in a few points in order to get this unique weapon that I believe to be somewhat under rated. In terms of just PvE, this is simply the best weapon in DS 3 IMO.

                  BOSS KILLER !!! actually I killed nameless king with it along those Demon Prince (& two other before that), perfect for close battles, fast and strong AF. if I don't use my main weapon Bastard Sword then I definitely use this one. trust me, Heavy build along with high Strength is the BOSS KILLER in this game, I Love It AF !!

                    Love this on a pyro build. The weapon art works wonders with racing your own black serpent towards an enemy. Not sure if my opponents were unskilled or panicking, but it seems to me that if black serpent hits, then the weapon art, you can still combo into a single R1 withouth fear of a parry.

                      I love this axe so much. I was blown away just how damn useful it was against Sister Friede, with the WA immediately knocking her out of any of her combos (even in Phase 3) and closing the distance after she anime-jumps away. The damage is excellent in heavy infusion too.

                        It says that the skill is warcry. but when i equip it switch to 2handed the skil is similar to the milwood knights that runs then slam off the enemy

                          You can get it very early on, as soon as you have access to the painted world, just run past the enemies including the big wolf and the knights and get up that tower. Absolutely worth the effort heavy infused for a strength build, especially with a shield, very strong and fast attacks that don't cost much stamina. Charged strong attacks after WA have a charge which can be occasionally useful I guess. WA helps in swamps, too. Grab the greatbow and the ash as well while you're there in case you ever need to kill something from afar.

                            Very good one hand weapon.. good combination of damage speed range stamina consumption and interesting variation of warcry.. I use a heavy +10 at 50 strength and it works for me fine all the time... Probably the best 1 hand axe for strength builds

                              compared to the claymore it has the same attack speed but lower stamina use, attribute requirements and weight, range seems to be about the same, its very hard to get tho

                                fun fact: at 99 str/dex, the millwood battle axe barely beats gael's greatsword in terms of ar. Millwood: 585 (ridiculous for an axe) when refined. Gael's: 583. Also take into account that the millwood can still be buffed, either with a spell or its weird WA. This thing is an absolute monster in high level pve, and, if used well, is very effective in pvp.

                                  I think there is a mystake somewhere:
                                  When sharp: E Str - A Dex Dmg = 249 + 219
                                  When heavy: A Str Dmg = 249 + 248
                                  Tested with: 40/40 in Str/Dex

                                  How is it possible ? i should have better dmg with Sharp gem but is not the case
