Yeah, not sure how it would fare in PvP - haven't tried that yet. In PvE it has the same advantage as halberds in that the recovery speed is near instant if you land a hit, but poor if you miss. I.e. not an issue in PvE really.|
CMW with 40+ int and Logan's Catalyst is an awesome buff. I was using it with the BSS for ages, but the Scythe tops it.
