Demon's Great Hammer is a weapon in Dark Souls 2.

 

Great hammer made of unknown materials. Perhaps it is stone, or even wood.

The origins of its name are unclear. Its tremendous weight suggests that it was never intended for humans. Perhaps it was an offering to the demons that appear in legend. 

Acquired From:

 

Hints and Tips:

  • This could be one of the best weapons you can get at the start of the game, but be warned that you will need a lot of strength to wield it. Wielding a weapon in two hands halves the strength requirement, meaning that you will only need 25 str to 2-hand the Demon's Great Hammer.

 

Trivia:

  • Belonged, or at least was wielded by the Asylum Demon in Dark Souls 1
  • Demon weapon built from the stone archtrees. Used by lesser demons at North Undead Asylum (item description from DS1)
  • Similar to DS1, the weapon *can be obtained via a bird's nest (in DS1, trading a sack to whence in DS2 you trade Smooth and Silky objects to )

          Anyone else think these hammers break pretty fast? it says it has 70 durability but 2 hand R2 drains it fast.

            Just to let everybody know, despite what the info says, you can get top tier***** with the small smooth and silky stone only much less frequently...or does the wiki say that?

              Wiki is wrong, you don't need 37 strength to two hand it. I'm not sure what the minimum is, but I have 35 strength and can use it just fine.

                    For those having trouble getting it, just back up your save before you trade for it and keep restoring that save and trading again until you get it.

                      This is literally the only weapon I want for my strength build (besides Drakekeeper's hammer). I've been on a manhunt for petrified somethings. Everytime I get one, I head straight to things betwixt. My only complaint? I have gotten one yet. You want to know what I do have? Channaler's Trident. A***** ton of Channeler's Trident. RNGesus ain't on my side. So, I've lost most of my hope on getting the weapon as soon as possible. So, im just waiting to see what'll come first: either that one special petrified gets me the hammer, or I get to Dragon Aerie and get the Drakekeeper's. Whichever comes first.
