When using 2 daggers it ignores the duel wielding penalty (-50% damage on offhand) and deals a total of 133% making it much better for 2 dagger builds. (gag order also does this) could be a bug

patch 220.127.116.116 modified the formula, the off-hand penalty applies to this skill now, it's 100% damage no matter you duel wielding or not, though the description still use the old formula (no penalty version), so you will find this skill does less damage than description when duel-wielding.

It really just depends! The fact it does piercing damage allows you to potentially one shot certain enemies that would rather cause problems over a few turns. Buffs to damage such as venom coating and firebrand also increase (and convert!) all of the damage to piercing damage. Very devastating skill in some cases. Also, a backstabber will likely take torturer anyway making the bleed always apply for a bit more free damage.

It's the mvp piercing damage because of backstab. Dual wielding backstab attack with this can KO enemies that are resistant to your main damage type or tanks that restore their armor often (e.g. bosses with high perseverance). And DOT is DOT. If you're aware of how much damage you need to spread around, bleeding can be a significant factor in getting a kill. Also worth mentioning blood factors into some great necromancy skills.
