So, what I`m interested in is: what stat determines the DAMAGE of that AoE?
I`m guessing Int. Or maybe Dex. Or maybe something else?

Could anyone please enlighten me.

It should be dex, since it's focus is Bladeweaving.

Don't use it for damage. It's pathetic. Use it with 1 train to pop careless rogues.

It still has a pretty interesting animation. I`m not sure is it the same as other sword weapon powers, though.

I loved watching my bw scout on death go all kungfu on careless stealthers. Tis true though, with insta-stealth Skah! that aoe lost a lot of its' utility.
Nope.

I can't find a video of it anymore. It was awesome when it played all the way through. Too bad by live it was pretty buggy and usually did not.

The beta form of it was amazing though.

I remember having it on a char with power damage and it scaled with it. Could be wrong since it was quite some time ago, but I think it's technically a spell. Shame it has such a Skah! range. Wouldn't give it standard aoe range but something in between would be more useful.
