The Axe is a slashing weapon type in Dauntless, though it has the power to stagger behemoths.

Summary

A heavy hitter for the tactical Slayer. Channel your hits to build up the meter, then unleash it to trigger a special attack buff. Stack it up to three times for maximum damage.

The Axe has 2 types of unique mechanics: "Resolve" and "Determination." Resolve is granted when charging the vertical attack 3 times, and it makes the slayer invulnerable to staggering effects. However, the slayer still takes damage from behemoth attacks. Determination multiplies the weapon's attack damage and stacks up to 3 times. Determination can be generated through horizontal or vertical charged attacks, and by reactivating the special.
