Mastodon Halberd is a weapon in Dark Souls 2

 

 

"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.

  • In PvP, hitting this weapon's 2 handed dashing attack 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 a lot of 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).

      You can also get the Mastodon Halberd from the one leading from Heide’s tower of flame bonfire to No Man’s Wharf! I used a rusted coin and a dragon watchdog parma and was able to get it.

        50STR and this can keep up with the AR of some of my ultra weapons. Seriously powerful thing (like all halberds that correlate to common builds in this game) but the sweet spot can be more finicky than, say, the longer halberds such as dragonrider's or roaring. It'll still carry you through both PvE and PvP. A good counter to this, if that's why you're on this page, is to stay very close to the wielder. If you have a faster weapon (straight sword) and high enough poise, you can out-DPS them due to the halberd only hitting you with its shaft instead of its head

          The durability doesn’t seem to be much of a issue with this weapon, I went through the entire second part of shrine of amana today without it even becoming at risk. I used a bow to lure/snipe some pesky enemies from afar though, so this might not be entirety accurate, I’ll reply to this comment or make a new one at a later date once I go through more of the game with it.

            tried all types of high 60 poise dmg weapons and none can do a good job in dlc area, turns out this badass with stone ring works the best
