Can someone break this down for me? I can't seem to get my head around how this beast is useful...

The same way it is good in P v E. If you have sow on, you can get your first attack in, then stay out of constant range, then get back in range right when the axe is going to swing again. I believe this is called jousting.
Aye use it jousting...see thread about jousting in this forum.
Basically ye time your hits with the weapon. Then when ye get close enough for your opponent to swing at ye, ye get more damage per encounter than he/she will (if they have a lower damage weapon). Fricka of the Vallon Zek Shanks

Actually the trick to jousting is to turn off your auto attack entirely, so you know when it recycles, then turning it back on when the button ungreys. Grimjaw Badflagon Retired "cosmopolitain" Thug, Former Ringwarden of Terris Thule,

Don't ever joust.
I will be forced to hate you.

just attack medding casters they will die, i promise.
its a pretty long delay to joust with(compared with most), but it hits hella hard =) Lirin AzamiaReaper of Tunarewww.ClanofNobles.com

another key to useing this is go have a haste item and a haste buff, 15 seconds is a LONG time, even when you hit for this much. Lirin AzamiaReaper of Tunarewww.ClanofNobles.com

[b]Yea grim kinda said what i was going to say. Jousting does not work too well against an expierenced PvP'er when you run away to refresh they will chase you :0P
Weighted axe is a good battle opener and GREAT if you find someone you can joust

oR, just use it on your first attack (which ought to bring any sitting caster to his knees) and then switch it ought for another weapon (s).
