UHM doesn't work as sanguine covenant's LoA doesn't work with cherubim so you lose essentially your only line of defense. The only advantages of UHM is the 5fpa and the pierce.
Non elemental dex, had medium success withBattlemaiden... But now it's Amazon onlyBattlemaiden

I was thinking of UHM as in Superbeast+Tainted blood+Stormlord. Without any of the actual UHM tree skills. Is dex based for physical damage just way too little damage compared to str?
Problem is you won't have any source of EWD, so phys damage will be lackluster regardless of you using a str or dex weapon. The only way to make it viable dmg wise is using an elemental weapon (ice or fire) and covering pierce with sanguine covenant.
