Minecraft Dungeons Double Axe Build – The Death Storm

In this Minecraft Dungeons Build, we will take a look at one of the weapon types in Minecraft Dungeons – The Double Axe.

Minecraft Dungeons Double Axe Overview


The Double Axe does only one thing – Spin. It doesn’t have any other fancy attacks pattern like Katana or Gauntlet. When you equip a Double Axe, your character only does one thing, deal damage in a 360 Arc, and that’s it.

That said, Double Axe is still a 2 hits combo weapons, the second spin is considered the last attack of the combo. A thing to remember for skills like Shockwave or Swirling.

What makes Double Axe powerful is it’s base damage. Similar to one hit weapons, Double Axe generally comes with high damage compared to other weapons. This alone make its super powerful once you got an Axe with enchantments like Sharpness

For the weapon, Whirlwind is picked thanks to it’s the unique ability – Cast Shockwave.

This saves you one more enchantment slot for other ability. Whirlwind will release a Shockwave on the second spin – the same effect as the Shockwave enchantment.

For Enchantments, the best would definitely 2 x Sharpness or 2 x Rampaging, and one for Critical Hit

This often happens on Apocalypse difficulty, where one weapon can be dropped with the same enchantment on multiple slots.

For more general gameplay, you can pair Whirlwind with Critical, Sharpness & Radiance (For Healing during combat)
