So from my testing this is what I am hypothesizing on these weapons because I have been testing it. The Scythe and the shotel can "peirce" shields or reach around them. So when you reach around you are not going to get full damage until they drop shield, but the reaching around and side attacks seems to have a Stamina depletion factor and the more dex I had the more stamina they lost. The "pierce" damage is higher than straight on and never changed or increased, but the stamina drain certainly can be. Well buffed during testing on a block character with a TON of endurance, I was able to remove all stamina on 1 swing.

If you have the stats for it, this basically completely replaces the old Battle Axe. As the two are virtually identical, aside from the Man Serpent Hatchet's longer reach.

I updated the upgrade table, and tried it on chaos on 40/40 int/faith i got 465 AR wich irc is the best boost you could give it, but the warcry is boosting it only to 477 soooo.... cool and dangerous but I don't think the weapon art is worth using it.If some people could give it a try with int or faith or quality and share their AR would be nice.

At 40str/13 dex with both weapons +9, heavy manserpent hatchet out damages the butcher knife by a few points (220+154 compared to 180+190), while also having lower stam cost, shield pierce, almost half the weight and is buffable unlike the butcher knife.A very good sidearm for slow heavy weapon str builds due to the fast swing speed and low weight.
