If you are going to use a sword like that, why not Broadsword? It's exactly alike, just more damage, but I'm not sure about the attack animation though, but both are large straight swords.
You will most likely get the most out of Lighting maxed, then Divine (depending on your stats).
claymore has a pretty big range, a lot of PvPers swing that around for stunlock... but I'm guessing you can do the same with broadsword.
at 40 faith? lightning and fire upgrades will surpass divine by quite a bit.
