New update to the 2H Axe

Great Axe:
Increased first target damage on heavy attacks, increased boss damage even more on first target.

Finally home and was able to do some cursory testing on the armored and non-armored practice dummies. Added results of the 2H Axe and 2H Hammer for comparison.

Practice Dummy (Unarmored)

2H Axe
Light Attack - 1050 to body
Light Attack - 1600 to head
Heavy Attack - 1550 to body
Heavy Attack - 2025 to head

2H Hammer
Light Attack - 1250 to body
Light Attack - 1875 to head
Heavy Attack - 875 to body
Heavy Attack - 1300 to head

Practice Dummy (Armored)

2H Axe
Light Attack - 850 to body
Light Attack - 1275 to head
Heavy Attack - 875 to body
Heavy Attack - 1125 to head

2H Hammer
Light Attack - 1000 to body
Light Attack - 1500 to head
Heavy Attack - 425 to body
Heavy Attack - 650 to head

Overall I don’t think this first target damage increase of the 2H Axe is gonna change things much. I’ll test with a boss to see if it’s improved much there, but it’s not looking good. Nothing has changed for light attack damage nor ‘cumbersome-ness’ of the weapon.

The 2H Hammer still appears to have better single target damage and wave clear.

I’ll report back with the boss damage later.

tl;dr - Update helps the charged damage of the axe. It doesn’t do enough though and there’s still a lot better options.

The 2h hammer definitely doesn’t have better wave clear, since it barely kills anything with it’s sweep, even against slaves.
I would be curious to see a DPS comparison, taking into account the axes higher attack speed, when it comes to single target.
