Hunter Axe

One of the trick weapons of the workshop, commonly
used by those who dedicate themselves to the hunt.

Retains the qualities of an axe, but offers wider
palette of attacks by transforming. Boasts a heavy
blunt attack, leading to high rally potential.

No matter their pasts, beasts are no more than beasts.
Some choose this axe to play the part of executioner.
