This weapon outclasses the Dominator in terms of defense. It even comes with extra bonuses like buffing the party and warding spirits. The 10% armour loss is usually not a big deal since the heroes using it have naturally high armour regardless, and is recovered quite fast by the warding spirits. Admittedly the health degen and warding spirits are kinda counter-intuitive since they benefit oppositely from long combat. However, you can actually turn the health degen to your advantage by having a Druid with Invigor. The constant health loss means that the Druid will always be able to Invigor the Samurai, letting him keep his taunt and debuff up.
At max level the weapon gives a 450 total damage bonus due to the double element type but this isn't as good as you might think. Having elemental damage takes away from the strength of true damage attacks like True Strike and Mighty Strike, and it will not benefit from the damage increases of Wrathful or Way of the Warrior. As such, Reaver's Blade will still remain the best offensive weapon for these two heroes, but Accursed Spark has a nicer balance of offense and defense.
