What is the advantage of the bearded axe?



  • Just wondering what the advantage of the bearded axe is compared to the poleaxe. I see no reason to use it over the pole axe to be honest. Also I see no reason to use the tier 1 axe over the poleaxe or the bearded. Just general balance questions because from me playing I find the bearded axe to not be as good as the poleaxe

    The new patching coming increases the speed drastically on the bearded axe. Oh, and it has a beard. Obviously it is the most manly weapon. :longb:



  • They’re not too different other than Pole Axe has a better stab and the Bearded Axe is slightly faster and (I think) bigger.

    It’s pretty much a matter of preference, although I’ve yet to use the beta B. Axe stats, I think the pre-beta Bearded Axe is a fine weapon and has that great viking feel.

  • Bearded Axe is extremely fast in the next patch, it’s almost silly.

    If anything, it should have been the Double Axe that was buffed speed wise, due to it being a whole lot smaller.

    Like I said before, Bearded should be single-strikes, Double should be combo speed. Otherwise what’s the point of having an axe on both sides ;)



  • That’s also a valid point!

    I have to agree with this.

    Its so short and slow, the dmg isnt even good.

    Running in circles and laughing at them feels bad.
