      This gets outdamaged by the Demons' Great Machete at 40 strength, don't know about 34, but use the DMG over this unless you would rather trade the damage for the special attack and lower stamina consumption

        Does the great ax max out at +5? Or can you upgrade it higher? I’m on my first ever play through and am still learning

          I suppose the “scaling” on this comes from dragon roaring and then whomping a mother****er with it. If it did scale, and it were easier to time the dragon roar, folks would be all over this **** all the time.

              The wiki says the r2 only gets buffed by Darkmoon Blade but I just tested it with magic weapon and the damage of the Wrath of Gods was increased

                well the R2 is a monster for those little turtles in tight spots like sens and etc its op when invadivng ganks and they dont know your position then you take spot make ready for them then bang one more to crack the wallnuts.
                The R2 really DOESNT know anything about blocking anyone in aoe will be effected...
                id rather call this tight spot beast...truely

                  IMO the huge strength requirement puts this weapon in a strange position given the lack of scaling. If you have access to the Black Knight or Demon Greataxes, there's no point to this weapon other than the R2 gimmick. I guess the main selling point is the accessibility since it's a guaranteed drop.

                    The only thing that is bad about the dragon king great axe is the fact that it cannot scale with stuff just like every other dragon weapon.

                      I remember killing Artorias with only the two-handed attack. That took a lot of repair powder and humanity.

                        I like to use this, upgraded a few times, to level up in the painted world. Killing a bunch of enemies at once is nice.

                        • The minimum stat requirement to wield it is 34 Strength while two-handing, so use it at your own will if you don't mind two-handing it and you have weapon buffs for it.

                            "I dub it the noob trap. A noob cuts off the tail, thinks "IM GONNA USE THIS WHEN IM AT A HIGH SL."
                            He does so.

                            You mean people are not allowed to have fun ? so they have to play with high poise and curved swords like already over the half of the community ?
