  • This weapon can be infused with Ashes of War and buffed with Magic and Consumables
  • Highland Axe can be upgraded by using Smithing Stones

    • Roar ability does NOT need to be equipped to this weapon in order for the buff to take effect

  • The Highland Axe requires one more Dexterity than the Battle Axe in order to be used, but since all classes start with at least 9 Dexterity, it doesn't matter.
  • Sell Value:  er runes 13 100.

      it says it stacks with roar medalion but it doesnt seem like it
      and the axe doesnt say it buffs the roars in the game
      can someone confirm its working?

        Does this buff Hoarah Loux’s Earthshaker? I would hope so considering you find it under a painting of him.

          Stat stick. It does buff both Barbaric and Braggarts roar's heavy attacks. Seems how they're a true combo now in PvP it's pretty good to just keep this on your side.

            It is a nice addition to a barbarian two handed arsenal. It works even sheathed as passive.

            Using a omen cleaver on Godrick soldier for testing:

            1 handed charged attack: 720
            2 handed charged attack: 795

            1 handed charged attack + axe on left: 865
            2 handed charged attack + axe on belt (visible): 954

              As of 1.10 this thing with Barbaric roar and axe talisman does nearly 1300+ damage with insane poise, AND it true combos. Range is still terrible because it’s an axe, but it’s still fun to use.

                Sooo pretty, yet not that good in pvp, not this weapon in particular but as a class, also the power stance is Soo bad

                  while this doesn't itself boost dragon incantations, the same early-mid game things that work well with this also work well with dragon incantations. I've been running this with blue dancer, roar medalion, dragon communion seal, with phys incants. (dragonclaw, rotten breath, crucible incants) Looking forward to seeing how this goes into late game.

                  • Anonymous

                    like others have said, this does not boost the power of dragon breath spells... however it doesn't seem to work with any incantations at all, as the very-much-a-roar Greyoll's roar and howl of shibriri also do not seem to be buffed by the axe. I think this is probably an oversight

                      I was able to confirm that the roar buff from highland axe does NOT increase the damage of dragon communion incantations in 1.09. At 15 faith, 60 arcane, with a +10 dragon communion seal, against the trolls in limgrave near the warmaster's shack on NG+, dragonfire reliably did 2877 damage on a full cast with the roar medallion, whether or not I had the highland axe equipped. The trolls were fully alerted and staggered from the dragonfire hitting them in the face on all tests. Dragonfire reliably did 2612 damage when not using the roar medallion under the same conditions, so I know I'm testing on the right update.

                        This whit keen affinity + roar medalion + shard of Alexander make the beast roar aow really good, add Black flame blade or blood flame blade for extra flavor...

                        • Anonymous

                          Tested on Giants besides Warmaster's shack. Using a +20 Stone Club infused Heavy, Ash of War is Barbaric Roar and 80 points in Strength. No talismans. Status screen shows unbuffed AR when two-handing = 615. AR after barbaric roar = 674.

                          Now I wait for barbaric roar to wear off, equip Highland Axe in left hand slot, two-hand stone club and buff with barbaric roar again. AR after barbaric roar is still 674. So this confirms that Highland Axe passive buff does NOT affect AR of regular attacks.

                          Now for testing the buffed heavy attack. All following attacks were done while two-handing stone club.

                          Regular attack unbuffed = 558
                          Heavy attack unbuffed = 720
                          Regular attack after barbaric roar = 619

                          Heavy attack after barbaric roar WITHOUT Highland Axe equipped in left slot AND all 3 swings land = 1308
                          Heavy attack after barbaric roar WITH Highland Axe equipped in left slot AND all 3 swings land = 1440

                          Charged heavy attack after barbaric roar WITHOUT Highland Axe equipped in left slot AND all 3 swings land = 1555
                          Charged heavy attack after barbaric roar WITH Highland Axe equipped in left slot AND all 3 swings land = 1710

                          From 1515 to 1649 is not exactly an additional 10% but it confirms that the Highland Axe passive ONLY improves heavy attacks and charged heavy attacks when you're buffed with a roar or warcry, not regular attacks, so don't worry that your AR does not change in the status screen, the buff does work as of the latest patch (currently playing on Xbox Series S).

                            This thing does NOT increase AR when buffing with Braggart's Roar. Tested off-hand/stowed and I just tested Roar Medallion to similar results. These items are currently NOT buffing Braggart's as of 1.09.

                              Unlike the Roar Medallion, this doesn't boost dragon breath incantations. Tested with the axe on mainhand, offhand or on the back by two hand the seal

                                The buff is bugged on Godfrey’s axe heavy attacks currently. Unlike the roar medallion where it buffs both the AOW ash of war and its upgraded heavy attacks, it doesn’t boost the damage of the upgraded heavy attacks.

                                  Looks like the buff only works from roars coming from the weapon's AoW itself? You can't just keep it in your offhand and use, say, Beast's Roar on your main weapon. Buff won't apply.

                                    "Boosts the damage of roars by 10%". So if I use barbaric roar, will my regular attacks get the roar buff plus 10%? Or is the 10% only added to my heavy attacks, like the talisman?

                                      Please remove the line saying it needs 1 more dexterity than the Battle Axe in order to be used. It's technically right (Battle Axe needs 8), but also extremely misleading since even the clumsiest of classes starts with 9 dexterity. You literally cannot have less than 9 dexteriy.

                                      • Legit one of my favorite weapons in the game. Unequivocally the most stylish looking axe and making a Barbaric Roar build around it is devastating. Axe Talisman + Rotten Winged Sword Insignia + Roar Medallion gives you crazy damage and stagger on charged roar heavies. Super fun playstyle, I highly recommend it.

                                          This is not, despite the above page, a direct upgrade over the Battle Axe. Battle Axe sports higher Str scaling at the cost of Dex scaling. Obviously, if you are going to be using war cries more often than never, or for critical hits, the relatively small AR difference is moot and the Highland Axe is indeed better. But for, say, using Wild Strikes, a very good ash of war that deals more damage with an axe, Battle Axe will be better even if only marginally. A conditional upgrade is not a direct upgrade.

                                            Keen Highland Axe with Beast’s Roar is a better ranged secondary for dex builds than most bows. Use the roar medallion and shard of alexander to build entirely around this weapon

                                              The wordbuilding of this item is awesome. Presumably, Roderika and her people came from far away on a boat to the lands between as she mentioned, and her companions went straight towards castle stormveil and met their end there. The axe being an obvious viking axe kinda alludes to the seafarer background. The first time I picked it up I never thought about how it was related to the environment and put it in storage.

                                                My second favorite small axe. Can get it super early in the game, as well as the roar medallion. Barbaric roar, shred things while having tons of hyper armor.

                                                    A nice trick is to keep this axe in your mainhand while two-handing a weapon with barbaric roar in your left. You'll have easy access to whatever ash of war you put on highlander (beast roar is a good option but you can pick any with utility).
                                                    For the sake of fashion this also puts highlander on the opposite hip when two-handing so you don't look lopsided.

                                                      Been offhanding this with the Greataxe being my main hand weapon. As far as I can tell while in the offhand you still gain the roar buff, at least for the charged R2s.

                                                      Started a new run with:

                                                      Greataxe +4 w/ Warcry
                                                      Highlander Axe
                                                      Roar talisman
                                                      Axe talisman
                                                      Spiked tear

                                                      ...And was already hitting Godrick for 1.2K charged R2s. Pretty beefy stuff. Keep in mind the Warcry charged R2s also give powerarmor and can stagger lighter enemies including other players. Slap on some heavier armor and you can trade with ease.

                                                      As for the weapon itself, it's a flat improvement to the Battle Axe, but I'm not all that fond of the Axe moveset in ER. If I had to use one I'd stick with Icerind Hatchet for the Frostbite.

Tested on tree guardian enemies by the dragonbarrow fork site of grace, 535 damage with nothing in the offhand, 585 damage with axe in the offhand.

It doesn't work if you off hand it and main cast Trolls with say Executioners Axe in your right hand. 2 build options: going Dex for beast roar, hyper stancing this and the winged bird Axe that regens mana. Put flame of redmanes on the OH mana Axe. Roar Talisman, Alexander's.
                                                            Other build option is not using it. Pick up; Executioners, or Giant Hammer, going troll roar strength and just using roar tali and Alexander's. Guess which build does more damage? Dex=dps (PvE) STR=burst (PvP)
                                                            Honestly a +25 great sword with just Alexander's and lion claw 54 STR 2h you will flip a guy for 1700 and vigor check scrubs.

                                                              I just tested this with a Greatsword plus War Cry and Highland Axe in off-hand. One-handed attack did 141 damage to a Godrick soldier when War Cry came from Greatsword, and 160 damage when War Cry came from Highland Axe.

Does this only buff Roars that actually damage, like Beast's Roar or Troll's Roar, or does it also buff the damage from R2 attacks when using War Cry or Barbaric Roar? And does the Roar Medallion give a similar buff if it's the latter?

Buffed troll's roar smashes posture like a fully charged colossal R2, usually for around 1200 damage to normal enemies, based on their resistances. While buffed by any war cry that changes your R2 moveset, you retain it for your main hand as long as the buff persists. It's a lot of fun, you can use the Beast's Roar ash of war instead of Troll's Roar since it's found so late in the game.

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                    I wish there were some good faith weapons for a melee faith build, but lightning no longer scales off faith and the holy weapon incantation needs 13 int for some reason
