Even at 40 Str and just 12 Faith G.S G.A gets just under 700AR. It's a solid weapon for those with the Stamina and timing to use it in PVE. That being said, after having used it for awhile it does have a couple failings to balance it out; Extremely predictable moveset, all are overhead Smashs to the ground excluding the 2H roll which is the normal push into ground GA move. In a battle Royale or against new players this thing is effective but it's very easy to Parry and roll from. Having both used it and had G.S G.A used against me I wouldn't recommend it for PVP. I know different opinions can hurt peoples feelings but this won't be working on anyone except Turtles and new players. Lastly I do enjoy it's WA which is a delayes overhead with a small lightning AoE in front of you. Very useful for Critical follow ups that nornally knock down most enemies giving you 3 or more damaging hits if they survive. Also ensures you wont miss the easily dodgeble WA. Thanks for reading!
