This weapon has a very low base damage and requires a lot of reinforcement to become good. Great weapon for PvE when power stanced, however its low durability and counter damage might be unattractive. There are better alternatives, like Ricard's Rapier or the Estoc.
It must be mentioned that this weapon is similar to the Mail Breaker, as they both are thrusting swords with the ability to trespass shields. However, the Mail Breaker has less overall damage, and has half the range of the Spider's Silk, but it has a superior counter-strength, a 50% more durability and it has the highest critical modifier in the thrusting sword category, being even superior to daggers.
