I feel like this weapon doesn't get nearly enough love. I hardly ever see it in PvP, but the combination of shield pierce, bleed buildup, multi-hit weapon art and a good chasedown moveset makes it absolutely melt players who are hiding behind shields. My SL60 Dex build runs with this in the mainhand and Great Corvian Scythe in the offhand (for even more shield pierce and bleed with a lot more reach), and it has a very consistent win rate against sword-and-board players. Just remember that some medium shields can parry, so don't spam R1s.
