How many of you will try to slay this beast on the very first encounter? I know it's possible, but that seems like a lot of punching. I may go with the firebomb to begin with to make it easier, then worry about the pendent/key in NG+.

I wonder just how much damage reduction I'd get for wielding it. It might not be worth it.
I bet you would still get it if you use the bombs. I can't imagine this game being able to distinguish HOW you beat a boss, just that its been slain. Also, from a completionist point of view, this maul will very, very much be worth it lol.

and don't for get guys you can trade an item to fluffy to get the hammer..and by then you'll prolly be able to use it
