I used the Full Moon Sickle for a while and was very disappointed. Moveset is garbage, the second hit in the RB combo has a reach of about 6 inches. So short that the first hit actually pushes people out of range of the second hit.

IMO reaper class CAN be good, however to fully utilize reaper weapons you have to hit enemies in their effective range, ie their blade. If you hit with the stick part you only deal half damage. When using reaper class weapons I recommend keeping your distance and a backup weapon when ranged attacks are not optimal.
I've run with the GScythe in DkS more than any other weapon. That thing was my baby. And I hate to say it, but I think DkS2 ruined the Scythe's (reaper class') viablity in pvp. It's not because they changed the moveset (in fact, it's gotten better). Rather, the dev's removed ravioli stepping and the ability to direct your attack (running attack in particular) manually. Without these elements, the reaper weapons have a long lead-in to attack (best was always a run), which NOW choreographs EXACTLY where your attack is going to land ahead of time.
DkS1: "That guy with the Scythe is running at me, I should dodge at the appropriate time not to be hit, and maybe punish."
DkS2: "That guy with the Scythe is running at me, I should side step 2 feet because I already know the exact zone of his attack, and then I WILL punish."
