Pretty sure this axe doesn't weigh 1.0
I think it's like 16.0 or 18.0
Little late here, but try 22.
22
I mean you got a HUUUUGE axe right here
Beating 2 a pulp!
Table here is claiming the Divine upgrade path scales with Int instead of Faith
Wack
dat feel when this drops off the Taurus boss when you're playing a Dex character

In my DSR playthrough, a Demon's Greataxe had not yet dropped after defeating all of the Taurus Demons in Undead Burg & Demon Ruins, but the one guarding the stairs & entrance in Demon Ruins respawned when resting or returning to the bonfire, and I collected the Greataxe upon defeating him again.
I joined the Forest Hunter covenant just so I could buy this thing
I was lucky enough to have this thing drop from the Taurae Demon at the Burg
Divine shouldn’t scale with Int

How does this thing perform for backstabs and/or repostes?
Yes it should
For ripostes, hit in the chest then in the head. For back stabs, Hit in the back and then the legs
Decided to look into this as a replacement for the Greataxe, and instead got a great disappointment. This axe deals damage that is only a bit higher than the Greataxe, but is significantly heavier and consumes a huge amount of stamina. If you’re using the Greataxe and are thinking about switching to this, don’t. The greataxe is lighter, faster, and consumes less stamina, all while dealing nearly the same damage as the Demon Greataxe.
Why the downvotes tho? At 50 Str and 40 Dex the Greataxe +15 has an AR of 639, while the Demons Greataxe +15 has an AR of 659.
Consider my advice so you don’t waste a titanite slab on this piece of s••t like I did.
Dood its a pure strength weapon so it doesnt get anything from dex so ovcourse it will have similar AR with 40dex
two handing the demon's greataxe with 66 Str gives you 712 AR the highest raw damage in the game without being max stats or having split damage types, it is WAY more damage then the greataxe by far
This is such a flawed comparison and is highly biased in the Greataxe's favor. First and foremost, the DGA doesn't scale with dex at all, so you can max the AR on this weapon at a significantly lower SL than the Greataxe. The min SL needed to max the AR on the respective weapons is in difference of approximately 30 levels (Depending on starting class), which is a huge level difference if you are not going to spend a few hours cheese farming souls. DGA also has slightly longer range, which makes a big difference in both PvE and PvP. So unless you are SL80+, DGA is going to always be the superior weapon. That being said, the biggest flaw with quality weapons are always the fact that they take huge stat investments to get comparable AR to respective STR or DEX weapons.
"Flawed comparison"? HAH! The Chaos Greataxe +5 with 22 Strength, 10 humanity, two-handed has 729 AR compared with the Chaos Demon's Greataxe +5's measly 595 AR. GTFO...
22 strength using DGA? hello? do you know you cant wield it at 22?

Another thing is that the DGA goes very well with the crystal path because of its massive durability and the fact you can buy it. But it terrible in the Chaos path because the majority of its damage comes from scaling, something Chaos doesnt have
This or the black knight great axe?
Black Knight Greataxe by far
I think the Demon's Greataxe is better for pve while the Black Knight Greataxe is for pvp.
BKG till NG+, DGA for beyond.

BKG has a far faster sweeping moveset ideal for pvp whereas DGA has insanely high damage per hit, it is very punishable and belongs almost exclusively in PvE
