With little other bonuses than an enhanced damage, Dimoak's Hew is rarely useful past early game. Still, its damage is rather large for Normal Act I, so physical fighters in early game may find it helpful.
Dimoak's Hew is unusual in that it is one of the very few items in the game to reduce the wielder's defense, though the reduction is so minimal it is practically unnoticeable.
