The Atlantean has good enhanced damage and a great boost to Attack Rating and Dexterity. However, other than its enhanced damage, the Atlantean has little other added damage elemental or otherwise, making it a rather dull (but still effective) weapon.
Due to its skill bonuses, the Atlantean is best off in the hands of a Paladin. Since it does not give boosts to any specific type of Paladin skill, a variety of Paladin builds can use it with equal effectiveness. Along the same logic, some Paladins more specific in their build may find other weapons more useful.
Compared to other unique swords, the Atlantean is simple but all-round useful. Still, other unique weapons have properties that are far more useful in terms of damage (such as the Deadly Strike of Headstriker).
