Infusing a weapon with a refined gem will increase the scaling bonuses from both strength and dexterity, without compromising one or the other. While it does also lower the weapon's base damage slightly, the improved scaling bonuses, in most cases, will result in an overall damage increase.
Refined infusions are a solid choice if a player is utilizing a quality-like build, where strength and dexterity are near-equal, if not equal, to one another. Furthermore, refined weapons are still able to be fully-buffed by resins, bundles, or spells.
