It wasn't intended to compete as much with current raid drops, as it felt weird that a strength-based DPS crafted weapon was more attractive than some of its counterparts.
Why is that feeling only extended towards this weapon? The Pyrium Spellward (1h craftable sword) while not a staggering upgrade from Fang of Twilight, certainly outperforms it, not only is the base dps better, but itemization is a step up as well. I don't see why the other craftable weapons were intended to slightly outperform their counterparts from the last tier, yet the 2 hander was meant to be "on par" with it's counterparts.
I guess two handed user are suppose to get firleland weapon for an upgrade or they are SOL.
