How to get the Waxing Gibbous Axe in Diablo 4

A powerful axe for a Druid

No matter what class you are using in Diablo 4, you will always be on the lookout for the best possible weapons to wield. Of course, this desire to wield a strong weapon becomes even greater when you reach the endgame, as the enemies and world get much tougher. Once players complete the main story, unique items are suddenly the most sought-after items.

If you are playing as the Druid class in Diablo 4, you might be on the prowl for the unique Waxing Gibbous Axe.

The Waxing Gibbous Axe can only be wielded by the Druid class and is one of the best weapons you can equip after beating the main story. It comes with five base affixes, including extra damage to healthy enemies, critical strike damage, damage to injured enemies, life on kill, and ranks to the Shred skill. It also has the following legendary Aspect effect: “Gain Stealth for 2 seconds when killing enemies with Shred. Breaking Stealth with an attack grants Ambush which guarantees Critical Strikes for [1.0 – 2.5] seconds.”

If you’ve been interested in adding the Waxing Gibbous Axe to your arsenal in Diablo 4, then check out my guide below to see how to obtain it.

Getting the Waxing Gibbous Axe in Diablo 4

For starters, you will need to be playing on either World Tier 3 or 4 in order to have a chance at acquiring the axe. After that, your chances of getting the Waxing Gibbous Axe are completely random.

Like any other unique item, this weapon is only found as a random drop from enemies or chests. You can run Nightmare Dungeons, complete Helltide events, and exchange Grim Favors at the Tree of Whispers for increased chances of finding a legendary item. However, there is no guaranteed way to acquire the Waxing Gibbous Axe in Diablo 4.

I have played over 150 hours and have still yet to get lucky with the axe, so I hope your RNG is stronger than mine.
