Best r2 special in the game IMO. Next to the MLGS anyway.
The rest of the weapon is pretty naff though. I used it extensively a long time ago and wasn't particularly pleased with it outside of novelty value. Shame the r2 isn't on a better weapon.
I'll 2nd this.
You may be buzzing because of the R2 attack. Although quite unique, the axe gets demolished in comparison to other weapons and even other axes.
Pros: DAT R2 Cons: weight (14 I believe, butcher knife is 10 with similar moveset) Attack rating (400s, for 2 extra weight you get 600AR from a BKGA) Reach (less reach then many other axes excl. Hand and battle)

Now I'm the kind of person who thinks this weapons is freaking awesome, and I've made more than a couple topics on the subject........to generally the same result.
On the one hand, the r2 is hilarious. If it weighed less than 10 units (or weighed 10 units), I don't think anyone would have a problem with it. On the other hand, there's a reason I scarcely use it outside of my Iron Golem RP.
To grab a line out of one of said topics, "If you're willing to resign yourself to mid-roll, it's pretty good." I may be great at writing up builds with specific weight, poise, and defense values aimed at but this axe makes fast rolling a chore to set up.
The wind blade isn't the entirety of the weapon, it's just the highlight. And this is coming from someone who has defended that axe almost since day one.
