It's reliable, yes. Very easy cheap gear farmer when you first hop into Duncraig. It doesn't do well with places like Teganze because of how the rivers are and you'd have to jump back and forth for hammers to reach the enemies, but for heavy dense areas like Duncraig and Fauzt, it's a good starter to get in quick.
It's not as broken strong as it was the first season of Sigma because there was a damage scaling bug at the time. Since then, the bug was fixed, but the %wdm was increased to 200% on hammer of zerae, so you get a lot of leech and physical damage to work with.
Keep in mind, this is more of a farming character than boss killer at lvl 120+
