Headtaker in Salt and Sanctuary is a Greataxe type weapon.



A beastly two-handed cleaver wielded by the Kraekan Cyclops. Although crude and primitive at the first glance, even the minimal level of sophistication required to craft this monstrous weapon seems inconsistent with the outwardly brutish creature that carried it. Could it be that the Kraekan, long regarded as mere predator of the deep acting upon base instinct alone, are something else entirely...?


Notes and Tips:

  • At 50 STR this weapon will have an Attack of 166.0.
  • Two-handing a weapon increases Strength by 50% for damage scaling, meaning you only need 34 Strength to reach the 50 Strength soft cap when two-handing a weapon.
  • Really nice mid-game weapon.
