"Sliced tail of the gargoyle guarding the Bell of Awakening in the Undead Church or patrolling in Anor Londo.
Can be used as a bronze battle axe. Bends dramatically during large attacks, owing to its nature as a tail."

Acquired from:

Gargoyle_Tail_Axe.jpg



Dropped by cutting off the tail of any gargoyle (Undead Parish, Anor Londo)


Notes:


  • This axe increases Bleeding, Poison and Toxin resistance x2. (inventory screen = x4, but equipped = x2) causing the illusion that you get poisoned and bled when you equip it.
  • Its shaft also bends on heavy attacks.
  • If your attack doesn't connect with anything, there will be a slight lag at the end of the attack, similar to halberd weapons.
  • Upgrading the weapon increases its Bleed, Poison and Toxin resistance. (needs confirmation)
  • Poison and Toxin resistance make this weapon a good choice in Blighttown.

      The most underrated weapon12 Apr 2016 20:21  

      This weapon is actually quite good. It has solid reach, decent damage (especially if infused with lightning) relatively low stat requirements and it doubles your resistances! What's not to love?
