50 dex + dark or chaos infusion makes it one of the best weapons you could ever ask for as a hexer/pyromancer. Not only is the damage fantastic, the weapon skill on it, when used as a follow up for a normal swing, can hit for around 800-900 damage. Oh and the shield damage on it is pretty good. 1 swing against even the mightiest of shields will still do at least 75 damage. (2 swings without a shield will normally hit in the 500-600 range.)
My only problem with the weapon is that doesn't look all too great but eh, the range on it makes up for it.
