Description[]

"A pairing of axe and shield, unremarkable save for the fact that the craftsmanship is as humble as it is impeccable."

- In-game description, Kazak Makaz

Advantages[]

  • As with all weapon and shield setups, this weapon can generate large amounts of temporary health with its Shield Push and Shield Bash moves, when used with talents that generate temporary health when you stagger enemies.
  • This weapon has effective moves in most situations: high damage, high stagger attacks that are effective vs. armoured elites and monsters, as well as Shield Push and Shield Bash moves to stagger hordes.
  • As with all weapon/shield combinations, you can block more attacks than normal weapons. This includes the Rat Ogre's ground slams, and ranged attacks such as the Ratling Gunner's and Deathrattler's bullets.

Disadvantages[]

  • Moderate movement slowdown while attacking, large slowdown while blocking, low dodge count and no dodge distance bonus combine for low overall mobility.
  • With only one cleaving attack in its moveset, this weapon struggles in situations that require killing infantry units quickly.

Light attacks:

  1. Right to left swing
  2. Left to right swing
  3. Overhead

Heavy attacks:

  1. Shield bash
  2. Left to right sweep
