most of the time, people get this weapon just for the looks. it looks very nice with a solar guard-type shield..
however, i do not normally spend millions on one. if i happen to be able to roll it, i do. if you find one for about 500k, id buy it.
i also think that you should really try and get the lower ones (Crotalus, Viper Staff, Vital Buckler, Notum Defender, Solar Guard) if you only want them for looks. low price, low ql, low reqs. if you want it for the damage, roll it. it is cheaper and, although a little more cumbersome, more worthwhile.
