Crescent Axe is a weapon in Dark Souls 2.

 

A bronze greataxe with a crescent shaped blade.

Its long handle gives the weapon great reach. One senses that this axe was once imbued with a sacred power, but only traces of it remain.

Perhaps those who blessed this axe are no longer with us.

Hints and Tips:

  • Upgraded with Twinkling Titanite to +5.
  • Although classified as a greataxe, the Crescent Axe has the moveset of a regular axe class weapon; this makes its swings very swift for a weapon of its length. In addition, the Crescent Axe's 2H running attack is the halberd's spinning attack, and it's second 2H attack seems to be unique
  • The Crescent Axe wis a sweetspot weapon. If an enemy is struck by the handle, they will only receive 50% damage.

      i tried this on a quality build as i seemed to get the most damage out of it that way, even against a magic build. Not awful, you should play it more like a halberd than an axe, it deals no damage if you´re up close.

        it seem magic infusion has a poor scaling (D) instead of the B of other. It is counter intuitive. Typo or secret ?

        • Anonymous

          Does anyone know how good the B scale on lighting is with lightning+5? Im comparing it to the Mace lighting +10 and it seems to be a little stronger in base dmg and has a bigger reach...
