    Black Knight Great Axe

    Post by Turin on Wed Mar 07, 2012 10:38 pm

    Every Black knight ive seen carries a sword. Sword which is frustratingly slow. Is the BK great axe as slow? Where might i find such a dude? is it slow too? thanks at forehand.

    I only know of two, one in the Catacombs above the Bonewheel skeletons, and then one that respawns before the boss room, both can drop it but the second one can be farmed for the item. It is pretty slow swinging and a pretty common PvP weapon. But it deals good damage.

    It is fairly slow, but it's still swift for a weapon of it's size. Very powerful too but easily parried.

    I'd recommend another weapon though, It's too boring to use i feel.

    The 1H R1 is fairly quick compared to other weapons in its class. It swings kind of like a 1H R1 for a claymore, although its damage and poise effects are similar to an ultragreatsword or a great hammer.

    Strangely it seems quite a bit faster than the sword. Weird, since it weighs double, I think. For a long time it was my boss killer; still is if I have a ton of souls I don't want to risk.

    Normally I like the quick, rapier-like weapons, but I absolutely love the Black Knights' halberd and great axe, especially for the Four Kings.

    Speaking of weapons, i prefer usin my man-serpent GS +15 or Murakumo, since my str is over 40 and dex 38. Although it feels nice to use Ricards rapier, for instance, cause its swiftness. And Iaito fully puffed, normal way. Liking the Eastern way of forging.

    lol what? bkga is the best axe in the game in terms of moves, the one handed r1 shas the speed of a greatsword, maybe a little faster. there's deff a lot better weapons in the game but they are harder to use and you will need practice, think of the bkga as the noob tube of dark souls.

    It's a great weapon for boss fights, especially four kings.

    I definitely would not recommend it if you are interested in duelling, people will simply riposte you given how predictable the weapon and its users usually are. It just seems to force people into the mentality of mashing R1, which leads to a swift death from anyone who isn't using a great shield. As mentioned, it is kind of a sign of a person new to PvP, is them using that axe. I love to Cos-PvP and even I really like to stray from using it with the Black Knight set given how common it is and how easy it is to parry. For PvE it is pretty good though.

    Like everyone else has said, the black knight great axe is one of the most predictable and parried weapons in the game, its got pretty steep requirements and it cannot be buffed by resin or magic/miracles. And it the fact that you need 9 twinkies to upgrade it to the max which is 72000 souls makes it pretty expensive as well. Dont get me wrong, its a good weapon but there are better alternatives.

    BKGA is great for PvE in NG+'s, if your looking for a bit of extra punch.

    Why do you have to try and scare me away from Demon's, I really need to get that game. No places around here carry it though.

    really? not even used? weird, you should deff get it, imo its a lot better than dark souls, darks is more polished but it feels like FROM just pasted and copied most of the envirements, you'll see what i mean when you get it, if you think btown sucked wait untill you get to valley of defilement.
