As you go through the tutorial and complete sections of it, the citizens of Burthorpe and Taverley will provide add-ons for your axe which provide bonus XP and some other bonuses for certain skilling tasks.
No dwarf would be without his trusty dwarven army axe. Self-sufficiency is the highest virtue to a dwarf and with this axe, you'll be totally sufficient!
The most versatile tool ever created, this is a pickaxe, a hatchet and a deadly weapon all rolled into one!
The multifunctional handle includes a chisel for lapidary emergencies and a needle for ad-hoc button fixing. Most importantly, because no dwarf can stand to go hungry, it even includes a special integrated tinderbox for lighting a campfire. To top this all off, you'll also find a handy knife serving as the perfect blade for whittling arrow shafts while you wait for your beast meat to roast.
