I've been using this skill for a bit now.

It's exactly what it says on the can: big bursty damage. In PvE, due to the cast time and Affliction requirement, I'll use it in rotation on hard targets and skip it on softer ones, because I've got better tools to kill weak enemies than this thing.

It's reasonably good at bursting down healers in PvP IF! you can get it off, which is a big question mark with that 2 second cast time - this is an easily LOS'd attack. It won't be enough by itself to down a healer, you'll need the other burst procs from the Lightning tree, but it helps a great deal in turning encounters.

@Mikeyboii64: This...priority list you speak of is garbage considering the fact that not every Inquisitor goes down the Lightning tree, mate. Let people form their own views.

@Valenz: Well, it should probably say "Level required: - " in my opinion as there's no level requirement for this ability due to it being the top-tier talent in the Lightning talent tree.

If you put all your points into the Lightning tree while leveling you'll attain this spell by level 40.

Why does it have a level 1 requirement ? I am level 9 and don't have this ability.

This spell is Rank 3 in the Sith Inquisitor's priority list for there rotation.
