Pickaxe Analysis

Piercing Hammer

Unlike most Hammers which have a Blunt type attack, the Pickaxe has a Pierce attack type. It shares this distinction with the War Pick. The main difference is that the Pickaxe is heavier with a longer reach.

Pickaxe Recommended Upgrade Path

Pickaxe Recommended Upgrade

Upgrading the Pickaxe normally would be best. While it is tempting to take advantage of the Dexterity bonus, the weapon will be weaker than most weapons out there, so focusing up sheer power will be best.
