Elden Ring Highland Axe Notes & Tips

  • Weapon SkillWar Cry
  • This weapon can be infused with Ashes of War and buffed with Magic and Consumables
  • Highland Axe can be upgraded by using Smithing Stones
  • Passive buff to Roars stacks by 15% (apposed to the common misconception of 7.5%) with Roar Medallion, but does not stack with another Highland Axe.
    • Roar ability does NOT need to be equipped to this weapon in order for the buff to take effect
  • A direct upgrade to the Battle Axe. While both weapons have nearly identical stats, the Highland Axe has 110 Critical Damage stat and it has a passive buff to Roars. It also requires one more Dexterity than the Battle Axe in order to be used. On the other hand, the Highland Axe has D scaling for Intelligence under Cold infusion path, whereas the Battle Axe has C scaling for Intelligence under Cold infusion path upon reaching +25 upgrade, 
  • Sell Value:  er runes 13 100.
  • NOTE: As of Patch 1.08, the speed and distance of some attacks has been increased and the recovery time has been reduced. Also the stagger damage of Axes’ guard counters has been increased. PVP's poise damage has also been reduced with this patch.
  • Physical damage updated as of Patch 1.08.

The Highland Axe can be infused with Ashes of War. Click below for a list of all possible Ashes of War that can be applied to the axe weapon.

      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 stage 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.

                  This page makes a point that it requires one less dexterity than the battle axe, but there's no class in the game with less than 9 dexterity so that difference is moot.

                    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.

                        Use this with the bloody helice in your off hand. After the roar buff, two hand the bloody helice and use the charged R2. Melts bosses.

                          According to my testing, I found that off-handing this axe does buff a weapon with beast’s roar in the main hand. 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.

                            You can't start the game with this or it'll be OP. Yes it is better than the Battle Axe and is a direct upgrade for shout builds. 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.

                              Haven't seen anyone in the comments mention this specifically, so I'll leave it here: It looks like the buff to roar skills is only applied when this axe itself is used to trigger the skill.

                              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.

                                So I'm a bit confused. 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?

                                • Highland Axe: +7.5%
                                  Roar Medallion: +15%
                                  Axe Talisman: +10%
                                  Spiked Cracked Tear Physick: +15%
                                  Should result in +56.3% Bonus to charged, warcry-buffed R2s.

                                  Raaaaaah!

                                    Does anyone know it the buff stacks if you weild two of these?

                                    And by chance those numbers with a roar Tailsman?

                                      Unfortunately the passive effect (I know it has to actively be in hand to receive buff) isn't working for Sword of Milos' AoW enhanced R2's like it should be when Roar Medallion is working on them.

                                      Unfortunate bug.

                                      • Quick berserker build - powerstance 2 of these bad boys, off-hand with a buffing roar/war cry of your choice and Troll's Roar in main hand, Roar Medallion, Shard of Alexander, and as much poise as you care to have. 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.

                                          Overall the Highland Axe is the best 1h axe, it has good dmg, fully customizable, early enough to obtain and is the only axe with 110% crit. So unless you are looking for one of the specific things some of the other axes provide, this is a very good weapon to invest in.

                                            I hate how this is literally just a reskinned Battle Axe with a crit modifier. Makes the og battle axe pointless.

                                              One thing of note is that this is the only axe with a bonus to crit damage. Might play around with it for a bit.

                                                'passive effect boosts heavy attacks after war cry or barbaric roar self buff'

                                                I can confirm this statement, (and braggart roar). Since this axe is kind of un-useful, so only concept player should use.

                                                  Should you want a second one know that the buff to roars from the axe doesn't stack with itself. But it does stack with the roar medallion.

                                                    It's a nice looking axe now that Dragonslayer's Cresent Axe isn't in elden ring, but I don't like it's moveset. There is a punishable hang before every swing.
                                                    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
