This is also the best weapon for infusions IMO, but I think it's a fact. Chaos and dark get C C A A scaling. Lightning, blessed and crystal all get S scaling. So being a mage makes this a good choice if you are willing to pump some points in dex. But I really don't think the weapon is overpowered. It's not that impressive as a raw weapon, and it is out classed by tons of other weapons on strength, dex and quality builds. It can be effective with the ring combos mentioned, but honestly I almost never see people using it in PvP. I sometimes use it against people that turtle up to break their guard, but then switch to a dagger for the critical hit. I do love this sword as it can be obtained so early on and can be farmed in bulk as it's a very common drop. But even for new characters that plan on doing a high dex build, I think there are several other better options. I really do not see how you can call this an overpowered weapon in the DS universe.
