In Diablo II Resurrected, Brainhew is part of the Great Axe category and one of many unique Axes in D2R. It is one of the biggest items in the game, taking 8 Blocks of space if you want to store it in the inventory or stash. Your character needs to reach at least the Required Level of 25 to carry this item. This Great Axe has a Strength Requirement of 63 before it can be used. Another limitation is Dexterity, which should be 39 as the very minimum.
Please note that this Weapon is Two-Handed, so your character can not use an additional weapon or shield at the same time.

Can Brainhew be Upgraded?

This is the normal version of this Axe. It can be upgraded to the exceptional version by putting it into the Horadric Cube. After hitting the transmute button it will be called Gothic Axe. After that, it can be upgraded even further by repeating the steps and you will receive the Elite Version (Champion Axe).
Note: If this item can have sockets, you might be able to get some runes and get one of the runewords as a result - if you place them in the correct order. Have a look at our builds to find out which items make the most sense for the character you're currently playing.
