The Great Ax is a heavy Elden Ring weapon that we can get quickly in the game and that will come in handy at the beginning (not so early) for those players who use a strength build and are looking for the style of having a slow weapon that hits good. thugs.

I mention “not so early” because although it is true that we can get the Great Ax practically at the beginning, it is also true that it asks us as a requirement of 30 Strength and therefore we will have to have climbed a few levels to be able to use it properly. effective way.

Remember that equipping a weapon whose requirements you don’t meet leads to misusing it, which often results in lower damage, clumsier movements, or missing some of its mechanics or abilities. Never equip a weapon whose requirements you do not meet.


These are his stats:

  • Base Damage level 1:
    • 151 Physical.
  • Weight: 13.0.
  • Critical: 100.
  • Protections:
    • Physical: 53.
    • magic 37
    • Fire: 37.
    • Lightning: 37.
    • Sacred: 37.
    • Stability: 37.
  • Attribute Scaling:
    • Strength 😀
    • Dexterity: d
  • Necessary Attributes:
    • Strength 30.
    • Skill 8.

As you can see, it is a very heavy weapon and quite slow as logic dictates, but also of great power. It has a fairly high base attack , which is its greatest virtue, although as a hit it has a not so good scaling, which in the long term affects it a lot compared to other heavy weapons.

As a requirement, it will ask for 30 Strength, which is quite a lot, but it’s not crazy either, you can get it pretty quickly in the game, in the same way that it happens with the Great Axe, which we can also get very early in the game.

The truth is that for the beginning (not so beginning), when you reach 30 Strength, well, it’s a pretty good weapon at that time. Until now I used the Heavy Oathsworn Greatsword , but now I’m playing with the Great Ax and it’s not bad for me; Despite the scaling, it has such a high base attack that I end up hitting more, what I don’t like so much is its moveset, which I generally prefer the greatsword.

By the way, I have replaced this weapon with the Greatsword of Guts , which is where we start talking about a really good weapon for Strength Builds.

The moveset doesn’t finish me because it is more oriented to single target (vertical slashes in general) and the truth is that those long-range horizontal slashes that greatswords usually have to annihilate any nearby enemy are missed.

Oh, if you like heavy axes, check out the Great Executioner Ax .


Basement of the Ruins of the Post in Elden Ring

We will find the Great Ax a little north of « Basement of the Ruins of the Post » (where the Lunatic Skull and the Sorceress Sellen ), to the East of the Pool of Agheel , it has no loss (mark it with the sword). It’ll be in one of those big wagons run by chained trolls, in the back as usual, in the chest.

You will have to face numerous enemies, yes, but it will be worth it for the loot, the poor chained trolls can be ignored, they do nothing unless you annoy them and they have enough to be in the situation they are in. #SaveTheTrolls
