So here's a question: why infuse this with lightning and not with fire? The get almost the same base damage but instead of B scaling on lightning you get B scaling on both lighning and fire, both of which scale direcly off faith.

Because split damage is bad and since it already has lightning on it, adding even more lightning makes it much stronger. Lightning is also the best element in the game pve-wise.
