Heavy at 40 str it has 440 AR, 2 handed with Raw at 12 str it has 390. Between its low weight and low requirements this would be an excellent weapon for a dedicated tank. Dump everything into vit, vigor, and endurance and still have a great hammer with solid damage. Still a gimmicky build, but viable.
Since when 400 AR is considered a good damage? Especially for slow Ultra type of weapons?

After checking mugen I noticed something hilarious. This thing is almost as good sharp infused at 40 dex (428 AR) as it is heavy infused at 40 strength (440 AR). Considering it can be two handed with as little as 12 strength, this can make it an option for dex builds that want a light weight hyper poise weapon.
If you have 40 STR, then you might as well consider yourself as having 60 STR for this weapon, since you'll rarely ever 1-hand it. And, for a fair comparison, the hypothetical dex build would have to 2-hand it, so we need to consider it 2-handed in the str build as well. So, it has 471 AR at 40/12 while 2-handed, significantly better than the 428 dex equivalent.

Note that both of these values are very weak for a great weapon, the next weakest great hammer has 520 AR and some go beyond 600 for the str build. If you absolutely must use a light, low-str great weapon on your dex build, I would suggest Zweihander over this, which has almost 100 more AR than the mallet at 522 (the heavy version is still better at 552).

tl;dr, don't forget the 2-handed str bonus when compared heavy to sharp.
A better option for 40 Dex hyper armour weapon would be the Astora Greatsword, which scales better than the Zwei with Sharp, weighs less than some standard Greatswords, and has additional HA with Charge. Just try not to get parried.
the base AR is actually 125, the stelth buffed it and fextra still didnt notice (for months)
Has a good AR when fused with Dark.
Muriel! Get mah mallet!
It is really good for preparing bodies for burial. I don't know why you need anything else. Y'all so violent.
raw infusion chart is wrong i currently have 310 AR at +6
According Mugenmonkey the main graph is correct though, with a +10 raw AR of 390 it is one of the strongest raw weapon in the game.
r1 l2 r1 combo just like spiked mace

This weapon has very high damage for fire and deep infusions.
