The higher the player's [Str, Dex, Mag, Fire, Light] stat, the higher the [Attack Bonus: Stat] is (found on the player status screen). The higher the scaling letter, the higher the percent multiplier applied to the [Attack: Stat].
This resulting bonus damage is added to the base physical damage of the weapon and is shown in the equipment screen in blue numbers as a "+ X".
Durability: The weapon's HP, when the durability hits 0, the effectiveness of its attacks become weakened to the point of almost uselessness. When an items durability is low, a message will come up saying "Weapon At Risk!" at this point the weapon does not perform at it's best.
Weight: How much the item weights when equipped.
Stability: How well the player keeps stance after being hit
Attack Type: Defines what kind of swing set the weapon has.

      A great weapon, but with a high skill curve. If you can't or don't want to space, this weapon is not for you. Very weak when you don't hit the sweetspot (does slightly more damage than a similar leveled Broken Sword) but incredibly strong (on par with Fume UGS) when the sweetspot is hit. Very high risk/reward, especially in PvP.

        I still can't decide if i should infuse with dark or not because the dex scaling went down a lot compared to no infuse. Planning on quality build run.

          Tested with dark infusion and dark/resonant weapon at 50/50 dark build damage or counter damage was about 950ish!!! And rings was rob+2 flyn ring and dark clutch ring. If you are hexer or into dark then definitely recommend it!

            this weapon is bad, the damage CAN BE great but getting it to hit with the tip of the weapon every time is a complete pain, and when you don't hit with the tip its damage is mediocre at best.

              This **** is years 'n years out of date. This page needs updated badly. Different requirements to wield, completely different stats, etc.

              • Anonymous

                This page is horribly outdated and innacurate. It has different requirements to wield, the AR is radically different, it has innate dark damage, etc.

                  I had not planned on using this weapon because of the ridiculous weight compared to other halberds, but holy crap does it do serious damage, especially infused with dark and buffed with dark. Considering I was doing a Hexer build, I had no choice. This thing seems to do a lot of damage even to enemies with considerable resistance to dark damage. Reminds me of the chaos gargoyle halberd in Dark Souls 1 in that respect. And it hits fast too. I guess that's how they justified making it so heavy. Thanks to the posts on this page and on Reddit.

                    I'm about to play this for the first time and heard it was a good choice weapon for people that like elemental builds. In DS3 (please try not to judge too harshly) was the lothric knight sword because it got great CCAA scaling, insane range, and fast dps. It just made the most sense for PvE. I guess I'm kinda looking for something like that but this looks really strong. I only care about PvE. Would you recommend this as a good PvE weapon for a first time player that favors dex, intel and faith?

                      This thing is a monster on a melee hexed build. 30/30 FTh and int, minimum stats to wield, dark infused and you can easily hit 6-700 AR without any buffs.

                        Weapons that stab over shields are hard to use because you still get the shield stab during the "enemy bounced off my shield" animation, making it impossible to get a proper counterhit. Really screws up what would otherwise be a great hexing weapon.

                          on a good hex build this halberd is a monster, the only downfall is the durability. I notice I have to repair it way more often than my other weapons. Probably cos it's made of bones.
