All that gymnastics to wring out any usefulness out of this crap and it gets thrown into the bin lol

14 faith and 10 str and dex to be able to perma kill the skeletons at the beginning of the game, allowing you to gain access to more estus with minimal stat upgrades sounds pretty useful, the weapon split scaling off of faith immediately doesn't make it bad, it has much more even scaling than upgrading a basic weapon to faith scaling meaning two handing it will increase your damage by a lot more than the other options

Seems like a cruel joke seeing how useless this weapon is. You have to dedicate your entire build around this weapon for it to be of any use, and even then it loses any semblance of usefulness once you're maybe 1/3 of the way into the game.

You can upgrade this weapon pretty fast once you first get it (there's a few guides on Youtube and such) so it isn't too bad for early game. Solid pick for the Catacombs due to innate divine dmg, for anyone who didn't already know this lol.

It's just as easy to get without the master key, simply go to the Valley of the Drakes through Undead Parish -> Darkroot, and pick it up there. You can even pop into Blighttown to get the New Londo Ruins key to open the short cut from Firelink while there.

I can see where that opinion come from, you are using it in mid/late game are you? It is one of the only faith scaling weapon available in the early game. Hell, even for lightning spear, the carrier of faith players early game is only available AFTER you kill the taurus femon and get past the hellkite dragon. Although, after you can make a divine weapon, i do agree that it kinda suks
