The Greataxe is a greataxe in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Greataxe resembling a hunk of raw iron.
If one possesses 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 retaliation.
Skill: Warcry
Let out a spirited warcry that temporarily boosts attack.

Availability[]

High Wall of Lothric

Cathedral of the Deep

Farron Keep

Lothric Castle

Characteristics[]

What the Greataxe lacks in reach, it makes up with sheer damage. Fully upgraded, it can easily surpass 700 attack damage using Warcry.

The Greataxe's very low Dexterity requirement and early availability make it a promising choice for strength-focused builds. It is also relatively light for its class.
