I was excited to give it a fair go, so ran it with Huntsman with smiter, headshot damage talent and stacking crit to try to double down on the finesse buff it got, thinking maybe aiming the nice horizontal heavy slices at head height into a horde could give HS a good mobile horde clear option.
I dunno I just didn’t feel it, though I only did a couple of runs with it. Honestly even stacking as much as I could for headshots and getting what seemed like a pretty good headshot ratio in hordes it felt underwhelming and not even all that safe on Legend no less. Mind you if HS had Assassin and THP on cleave that might change things in their favour. For HS at least I can’t see a single reason I’d take it over, say, 1h Mace (even pre beta version).
I’m sure it’s good enough for Merc but that doesn’t count. I dunno which Kruber’s kit it even synergises with, or which one’s class identity it even matches with. To me it kinda feels like the clunkiness of using a 2h weapon (combo wise) but with none of the benefits.
