    Golem Axe

    Post by XuitusTheGreat on Sun Feb 03, 2013 12:28 pm

    made a str build focused around the Havel Shield and was trying to figure out the best weapon to use with it :| the golem axe seems like a good choice because of its R2 and speed

    I believe that just the normal great axe would be better, it has a much better attack rating and while it may be a little slower it would overall be better, not to mention the fact that it weighs less than the golem axe.

    golem axe is ok, its rediculous how heavy it is for a reg axe. yeah the 1h r2 is awesome but its kinda weak even when you get a counter, you're better off going with the greataxe but if you think its too slow for you maybe give the butcher knife a shot, its got awesome phantom reach.

    With this, you've got all angles covered. I've done it and it's pure badass.

    The golem axe is only notable for its r2, whip it out to punish people who try to cast or keep a distance from you. Not a good primary weapon due to its relative weakness and weight.

    I like it. it was 16 units though. Which is effing retarded. It's heavier than a great axe, yet swings like a battle axe.

    It's fun, but not very effective. I use it for style points.

    i think it would've been perfect if they'd made it into a greataxe, A scaling in str and same moveset as reg greataxe with the special r2, imagine how strong the r2 would be, it's bumming me out just thinking about how FROM prefers dex weapons(specially katanas) over everything else.

    Must...resist...bashing...katanas....



    Anyway, the Golem Axe + 5 has a C in str scaling. With effing 16 units and 36 str requirement. At 40 str it has an AR of 417. Butcher knife has 426. Not a lot more, but definitely better range. Why, From, why? Also, I have a strange desire to make a Great Axe build on Demon's Souls.

    @E crescent axe has crazy phantom reach, i have a crescent axe build that's sl99 and i like it.
    @Miz i personally wouldnt waste those dex and would just dump them in vit, whenver im using a greatshield i parry with my bare fist, its just as easy as parrying with the parrying dagger for me specially when my opponent does nothing but come up to me and press r1 if they see me with a greatshield.

    @Rant Would the Crescent Axe be useful in a faith build that mid rolls?

    very useful actually, that thing has amazing reach and phantom reach too. stunlocks like a beast, im pretty sure it breaks 52 poise like a greatsword when two handed but i need to test it.

    I meant the crescent axe from Demon's Souls. But yeah, the crescent ax from Dark Souls is also good for the reach.

    crescent axe is demon's was good too, they really F'ed up some of the weapons that were good in demon's and made more dex weapon unbalanced instead.

    after experimenting around the Golem axe just doesn't have the AR I wanted lol and the crescent axe requires too much faith other wise ya great choice big grin the great demonaxe has actually been nice cause of its range you can play "just the tip" as people try and parry it lol just to take dmg ^_^ in the end I took a liking to the stone sword, it has a mental warfare edge to it. When people see it their first thought it "hes gonna twop" so they rush me only to get a dragon roar, shield knocked away, and then take two free hits from it, also has decent AR for a greatsword happy the great demon machete came out nice as well but I need more dead angle practice with it lol before it can become more solid for me, ty for the feed back really gave me some good ideas big grin
