Location[edit]

Anyone know where to find an inscribable chaos axe? Mr-HaXx

Just got one out of Zaishen chest. req 13, but pretty happy anyway. Sadie2k 17:32, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
Just updated it to include Nightfall Drakes on the plains quest. They also drop from locked chest and Kournan Chest that spawn near the Obsidian Furnace Drakes.--Shayne123 13:51, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

I actually just found one at Jaya Bluffs, fighting the giants.

These also drop from the fow end chest. Just got a q9 inscribable

Stats[edit]

Like the FDS, are all chaos axes max damage but a random requirement? Silavor UserSilavorSigIcon.png 02:20, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

I am positive the FDS is not necessarily max damage, and, as far as I know, a Chaos Axe is not necessarily max. 66.32.234.17 21:20, 27 January 2008 (UTC)
Oh, well it's just that every FDS I've ever gotten was max damage, so I just kinda figured... >.< Silavor UserSilavorSigIcon.png 02:46, 2 February 2008 (UTC)
IDS are all max damag though, as far as I know. Pluto 10:19, 12 February 2008 (UTC)
most FDS aren't max damage, all IDS are, most chaos axes aren't --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:84.192.144.207 (talk).
both the FDS and Chaos axe are not necesarly Max Damage all the time and do have random req --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:67.177.18.50 (talk).
Hmm... does that mean you're lucky because the only FDS drops you got are maxed? Or that you are unlucky in that you don't get many FDS drops :D -- ab.er.rant User Ab.er.rant Sig.png 06:09, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
What are FDS and IDS?Briar 22:56, 26 June 2008 (UTC)Briar
FDS and IDS. Search for the win. Pass it along to the majority of people at HELP:GAME, too. --Chaiyo Kaldor talk contribs 15:09, 28 June 2008 (UTC)

trivia[edit]

is the "# If you are hoping to obtain this via players, expect to pay a large sum, as this is a very popular axe due to its unique design." in the trivia really relavant? its a economy based comment... if someone finds a way to farm them really easy the price will naturaly drop... i vote to remove that comment Fear 13:31, 21 April 2009 (UTC)

I was just reading that, and yes, I think it should be removed. SoloLovesCakeUser SoloLovesCake RBC.png‎ 22:41, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
Just went along and did it. None of the other popular weapon skins had a note like that. Might be an interesting idea to make a whole new section on the wiki for PC's. Forum PC's are not very reliable/handy.80.56.148.251 14:12, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Seconded. The forum PCs are often a few months out of date. The wiki would remain pretty accurate. 66.203.20.95 14:18, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
wouldn't work. too many people use the wiki that it would be easy enough to just edit the price to make selling an item easier. This is also sometimes seen on traveler item where people put in an incorrect item to move a product they have faster and for more money. check gwg its decently accurate.

Note/trivia[edit]

Should it be added that chaos axes do not create shadows on the ground? Pony User talk:Pony Slaystation X 15:38, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Price[edit]

How much is it worth? User:Winter Frore/Winter Frore

As much as someone will sell it to you for. (or 35g, if you ask the Merchant.) | 72 User 72 Truly Random.jpg {U|T|C} 13:58, 17 October 2009 (UTC)

Found a few in Sorrow's Furnace[edit]

Came out of the miner's chest, have screenies to prove it Nay the One and Only 03:36, 13 December 2009 (UTC)

Has a shadow?[edit]

Just noticed my Chaos Axe does have a shadow in Morostav Trail. Will test other areas to confirm 64.40.61.40 04:02, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

Colour[edit]

Are those colours really correct? Green = Purple? Blue = Orange? That just seems wrong, but I don't have any chaos weapons so I can't test it out, but it seems like a more significant bug than the transparency one. --Sahjiarah 18:32, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

It's typical of dyes in real life that they have very, very different effects on different materials (dye companies even market identical color names for different materials using different chemicals). It's typical of dyes in Guild Wars to sometimes follow subtractive color rules (similar to paints: yellow + blue → green, each color removes parts of the spectrum...moving towards black) or additive rules (similar to video monitors: adding the primary colors moves toward white, e.g. Red + Green → Yellow).
This makes it hard to generalize what will happen when mixing dyes in GW, but usually organic materials (cloth, silks) will get duller with more dye while inorganics (iron, steel) will get deeper in hue. Silver helps make the organics shinier, but has a different effect on the inorganics. This combines with some unseen color in the particular item to produce unexpected effects: the plain-looking bandanna will turn pink with red dye, some will turn orange when adding pink to blue or purple, and so forth. — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 18:45, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
I was just going to go with its a bit chaotic the dying system on chaotic axes.. --File:User Chieftain Alex Chieftain Signature.pngChieftain Alex 18:59, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
Yah, TEF, I'm not talking about mixing dyes, or having red come out pink, I'm talking about blue coming out orange. Those are on opposite ends of the spectrum, not just a little off. But I like your answer, Alex. I can live with that. --Sahjiarah 00:47, 14 July 2011 (UTC)

Blue /w Blue Chaos Gloves[edit]

I wanted to share my recipe for those interested in trying to match a blue chaos axe with blue chaos gloves. Enjoy! http://i58.tinypic.com/mv0p6s.jpg Gladiator Motoko (talk) 21:15, 17 September 2014 (UTC)
