Gyrm Greataxe is a weapon in Dark Souls 2.

 

A greataxe used by the nomadic Gyrm.

At first glance this greataxe appears crude, but with further examination one sees the fine craftsmanship of Gyrm blacksmiths. Quite heavy for a human, but swung about with reckless abandon by the Gyrm.

Hints and Tips:

  • With 120 stamina you can perform four 2-handed R1 attacks, versus only being able to do just 3 with the normal Greataxe.
  • Mundane version of this weapon loses all scaling after +1.
  • The rolling 2-handed R1 attack is similar to the Greataxe in Demons Souls.
  • The powerstance moveset is identical to Lion Greataxe, light attack from Ultra Greatswords and strong attack from Great Hammers.
  • The 1-hand light attack moveset is similar to that of the Greatsword, however it is roughly 10% faster (start to middle of swing in 19 frames vs 21 for the greatsword).
  • 75 Str/12 Dex required to powerstance.

      Half the reach of the Greatsword while weighing more, still needing DEX investment if you're a Deprived, having worse scaling and being more difficult to obtain. Wow, what an incredible weapon!

        Very good STR weapon for NPC phantoms, since they all mindlessly walk into your attacks, you can just 1hR1 combo them for upwards of 3k damage. For players, they'll have to be as dumb as the AI in this game to take the combo bait, but that's more common than you would think

          I dont have the stats to wield this thing, but apparently it didnt give me a damage decrease, it just lowered my scaling to +6 extra AR, answers?

            Rerunning through the game before the final DS3 DLC drops. Im running thru with a tanky strength hero. Right now im decked out in heavy armor and wielding one of these. Feels amazing

              This thing is MONSTER. It hits like a freight train and its R1R1 combo is extremely fast so long as the hits connect with an enemy. It lacks range though
