1. low str/dex stat requirment for a dark/pyromancer build
2. good damage output higher than other dark infused weapons, because it has the advantage of being buffed with wa adding 166 fire damage with fire clutch ring
3. very good moveset with thrust atacks
4. longest GS in the game
5. looks really cool!
1. cant be infused but for this weapon this is not really a con since it s purpose is meant to be used by int/faith builds. So, other than not being versatile, like a claymore for example that can be used by both physical and magic builds, this weapon does not have a con.
A great weapon for a pyromancer or a dark build. good damage, good moveset, fire and dark damage, all these make this a great weapon for pvp and pve alike. Excells at low lvl pvp as a pyromancer needs only 5 levels investment to wield it, it is available pretty early in the game (needs only vordt and sage to be killed) but is good for a dark build at higher levels as well. A dedicated pyro with 12 dex can use both this and sunlight ss for variety and damage buff combo.
Enjoy the MLGS of pyromancers!
