The large axe is a 12 damage axe weapon which grants 6 additional pixels of reach. It rarely drops from Ourik. It is commonly used by mid to low level players due to its relatively low price, medium attack damage and since that weapon is the best one to train the axe skill since it doesn't have any skill requirement to use it. Sholop buys large axes for 167 gold and sells them for 1000, but players often buy and sell them for around 3000 gold.
The large axe is the strongest weapon in-game without a skill requirement for use.
