Interesting tidbit, but Bloodflame Blade is almost always the better choice in terms of a buff when compared against this, which usually isn't that surprising since spells buffs are typically better than their consumable counterparts. There is 3 cases though where Blood Grease does outshine BFB though, namely on Varre's Bouquet, Ripple Blade, and Ripple Crescent Halberd. Reason for this is due to the fact that all 3 of these weapons are Arcane scaling weapons which allow for weapon buffs, and in turn Blood Grease is able to take advantage of the Arcane scaling to rise above 30 Bleed. For the Ripple weapons, this doesn't matter too terribly much to begin with though, as other weapons from within their weapon classes have base Bleed and can take advantage of BFB. The same cannot be said for Varre's Bouquet though. This weapon at 80 Arcane already reaches a rather high amount of Bleed, and with the 30 Bleed which scales you can consistently 2-hit proc Bleed on other players. Does it make Varre's Bouquet good? Not really, but it turns a terrible weapon into a decent Bleed application tool. All things considered though, running BFB on Varre's Bouquet is still decent as well, and will most likely Bleed just as consistently as Blood Grease, with the added bonus of applying pressure through rolls in PVP.
