    Is a Pickaxe any good for low levels?

    I've heard that the normal Pickaxe is a great weapon of someone. Is it really? I looked it up and it seems that the Warpick is more powerful, can be 1 handed at level 1 and is much easier to get. Can somebody point out why the normal Pickaxe is so good?

    Pickaxe does thrusting dmg and has good STR-scaling. Use it with Leo ring and you'll see why people like it.

    EDIT: I'm not sure how low levels are we talking about here though...

    A level 1 Pyro can't hold the Warpick(10dex req) but can 2h the pickaxe (16 str req)

    That's it really

    If level 1s had 10 Dex you could 2h the Claymore (Chaos clay would quickly overtake other potential options as Best SL1 weapon) And would get access to all sorts of other goodies like the Demon's Spear, 2h Gaurdian's tail (poison whip ahoy!) and many of the straight swords.

    Best SL1 weapon is Chaos Reinforced Club. It's fast as hell and low weight. High damage.

    PIckaxe is only good for dedicated STR builds. The reinforced club is arguably the best low level weapon due to having Bleed, stunlocking and great elemental AR.
