Dauntless: Axe

Channel your inner titan by wielding a giant axe dealing heavy damage. Charge up your meter by channelling your attacks and unleash fury with your special attack. Get it up to three stacks for maximum damage.

Although your attack speed is slow, wielding the axe allows you to deal massive damage and interrupt Behemoths attacks. However, keep an eye on your stamina as it depletes when charging your attacks.

In addition, you will have two unique mechanics ‘Resolve’ and ‘Determination’. Charging the vertical attacks 3 times will grant you Resolve that makes you invulnerable to staggering effects whilst still taking damage.

Stacks of Determination are granted by landing charged attacks or hitting Behemoths with your Axe Special moves. It amplifies your attacks giving you extra bonus damage depending on the number of stacks you have. Maximum three stack.
