Which axe should I use as a base for crafts and RWs, assuming I want a 1h one?
Image Giant Axe, right?

That's two handed. Go with a War Axe

Hey, first of all, thanks for the guide. I have a question about weapon choice.

I have level 132 now but could not find neither Gotterdamerung nor Nimmenjuushin.
I am running with Kodiak on a sacred war axe, but I simply need more damage for some areas/bosses.
I was planning to make Instinct runeword (ohm-xis) on an ethereal war axe, but could not find any so far.
However, I found an eth giant axe, but I am not sure whether the attack speed will be enough with that base item.

Any idea/suggestion?

PS: playing in HC

Why are you using a 1handed weapon if you want more dmg? Shield does nothing for this build, because you have no dex. And instinct is for wildfire, not for rend.

Couple questions regarding Rend: is life on attack applicable with it? Does stun attack work for it?

Don't know if these are applicable being that it isn't an actual "striking" attack?

No, I've just asked the question in the short questions thread: Rend is a ranged attack. Life on attack and cast on melee attack don't work. Stun also doesn't seem to work from my experience.

Maul is a hammer. Bear form requires axes or maces.

Edit: as smartasss pointed out with an excess of attitude, this is wrong. Documentation lists them as a separate category but the game treats hammers as maces.
