The biggest problem here is probably the perceived need to run Sharpness/Slaying. This makes it very difficult to use many utility songs (particularly utility songs with prerequisites), and hence distorts the usability of the entire tree.

I am wondering a little bit how easy a melee victory in the throne room is without those two songs. It feels awkward to have a couple of abilities in one of the trees effectively reserved as the standard choices for the final level, and trying to do it without them effectively being a challenge run.
