    Build Overview

    Here's one that fans of the lore will appreciate, as it aims to use one of the heftier black knight weapons to not only stagger and stun-lock foes but to do so with arguably the best moveset out of any greataxe. The greater than average poise health and poise damage grants wielders of the Black Knight Greataxe the ability to trade blows optimally.

    Using some rings to boost one's stats for greater scaling bonuses adds to this build's viability, especially if the player includes some parries and damage-boosted ripostes.


    PVP Tips

    Much like how the black knights hunted and felled foes much greater in size than themselves, the Black Knight Greataxe is arguably the best DS3 Strength build weapon to use against other great weapons if one wants to beat them at their own game.

    The greater poise health and damage enhance the aggressive moveset, especially the one-handed strong attack that can flatten foes similar to what a great hammer can do as well as the fully charged two-handed strong attack that can launch players into the air.


    PVE Tips

    Similar to other Strength weapons mentioned, the Black Knight Greataxe is another solid choice for those who want to out-poise enemies in combat and trade big hits. The innate poise health combined with the powerful leaping attack and the mighty two-handed charged heavy attack can allow players to dominate many kinds of enemies in-game.
