Personally for me I belive that Dark Flame is perfect for short range fighting, because when you have distance between your opponent that just gives them a better chance to evade it.

I always thought it was meant as Cecil's Anti-air option, for people trying to halo camp you when you're on the ground, when people are far away I don't tend to risk it in case I end up being punished, same goes for close range, most people aren't very confident when it comes to punishing slow start up attacks, but on the off chance they do, it could lead to a messy end for Cecil.
I agree with Tom that it's a good anti-air. As for distance, it's safest and most likely to hit at mid range.
At close range, they can simply attack or dodge to the side and counter. At long range, it's easily outran and countered by other long range attacks.
be careful, with dark flame. There are some hp attacks, like gilgamesh's cross slash, which allow the opponent to pass trough dark flame.
"It's time we fight like men. And ladies.
And ladies who dress like men.
For Gilgamesh...It's morphing time!"
i only really use dark flame when the opponent is halo camping, but if they use an assist during start up then you're screwed >.< and if you manage to hit the opponent before you're hit with the assist then you get broken, which is annoying.
