A Battle Axe is the first Axe-class weapon available in Golden Sun, and one of the earliest available in Golden Sun: The Lost Age. It can be bought in weapon vendors in the towns Vault, Bilibin, and Imil in Golden Sun and the towns Madra, Alhafra, and Garoh in The Lost Age. Being an Axe-class weapon, a Battle Axe can be equipped on Isaac and Garet in the first game, together with Felix and Piers in the second. It increases the wielder's base Attack rating by 24 points. Its buy value is 280 coins and its sell value is 210 coins.
In Golden Sun when the two-man party of Isaac and Garet first enter Vault early in their quest, the Battle Axe sold at the armor vendor is noticeably stronger than even the Long Swords Isaac and Garet could be equipped with, so buying one would not be a bad idea. It would be useful for Isaac to use in the upcoming battle with the Vault Bandits for physical attack, while Garet and Ivan use offensive Psynergy.
In Golden Sun: The Lost Age, most players would never buy a Battle Axe for Felix the first chance they get at Madra because in the Dehkan Plateau dungeon-style location that must be completed prior to reaching Madra, a superior Venus-based axe Artifact named Themis' Axe can be found in a chest, which is a powerful weapon for Felix at that early point because it has 30 attack and an Unleash effect whose Venus element is capitalized on by Felix's Venus power rating.
