The bonuses from the main weapon, which has been equipped before obtaining the Spirit Axe, increase the power of its weapon-related skills, as well as other stats including Health, despite the fact that main weapon looks replaced and weapon swapping is disabled. However, if you unequip the main weapon on the Hero panel, it cannot be equipped back and bonuses will be lost.
This effect is still called "Spirit Axe" during The Queen's Justice despite the user wielding a scepter and the device itself being called "Mortus Virge".
  • During The Last of the Giant-Kings, clones will spawn with this weapon equipped, and access to all of its skills. They will usually start with Thundering Throw if summoned at a distance and Griffon Strike if they are summoned near the enemy.
