A greataxe is a double-bladed, two-handed melee weapon in the axe family.[1]

DescriptionEdit

The greataxe is a large, heavy battleaxe with a double-bladed head. The haft is usually stout wood and longer than even a dwarven waraxe. The grip is about half the length of the haft. The greataxe weighs about twice as much as a regular battleaxe. An average greataxe costs 20gp and weighs 12lbs (5.5kg).[1]

UseEdit

Barbarians tend to favor the greataxe for the tremendous amount of damage it can deliver. Wielded two-handed, the double blades allow an alternating forward/backswing attack with devastating results. It requires some training to use the greataxe effectively, therefore this is classified as a martial weapon.[2]
