Mastodon Halberd

Equipment >> Weapons

"Halberd of the Primal Knights that defend Drangleic castle.
The brutish and might Primal Knights wield this halberd like a feather-light twig, but to the ordinary warrior it is a chore to even hold up, owing to its great weight.
Terrible experiments were said to have taken place in a hidden manor in Drangleic. The mastermind presiding over the deeds was thought to be Lord Aldia".

Hints and Tips:
  • Moveset identical to regular
Halberd.
In particular, normal attack when shield is raised becomes a thrusting attack similar to that of a spear.
  • Immensely powerful in a STR-build, both in PvE and PvP. Fully upgraded, this weapon will one shot most foes in one combo before NG+.
  • In PvP, be sure to use this weapon's 2 handed dashing attack. It will easily break through most opponents' guards or outright kill them if they take full damage from all 3 swings. This attack's range and damage are unbelievably good, although it does drain all your stamina.
  • To counter: either use high stability shields or focus on dodging behind the halberd wielder. They will be more vulnerable than most if their attacks are blocked (with a greatshield) or dodged.
  • This weapon's durability decreases faster than most other weapons in the game. Unlike with great weapons, it takes a durability penalty when hitting the floor, and this weapon's move animations causes it to hit the floor often. This weapon also takes an abnormal amount of durability damage when hitting monsters and even when being hit (without using it to block). To save durability loss, it is suggested to use this weapon only on medium/large creatures.
