Battle Axe is a weapon in Dark Souls 2.

 

An axe crafted for battle.

Axes generally deal more damage than swords, but each swing leaves its wielder vulnerable. One is tempted to swing axes with wild abandon, but in fact their effective manipulation demands caution and precise timing.

      Battle axe main hand, rapier off hand. Both grabbed from Lenigrast for cheap. Axe for high damage slashes and downward swings, and rapier for long distance pokes and parrying. Start as warrior class and you only need a single point invested in DEX to use both at full effectiveness.
      And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how you set yourself up for the entire game, right from the very beginning of it.

        "Drakekeeper sword" this, "Vangarian sword" that. Bro I just want to obliterate trash mobs. This thing is a quality build godsend

          Simple moveset, easily upgradeable, obtainable super early, and hits like a tube sock full of pennies. 10/10 would recommend.

            This axe creates ds2 easy mode, easily obtainable, upgraded with normal titanite, high damage, low stat requirements, and can last you through the entire game, even to the final boss!
