Sages/Sorcs, because they have comparatively massive resource pools compared to everyone else in the game, have a different paradigm for their abilities than pretty much every other AC out there. As such, their "basic attack" is a cast time ability that consumes a modicum of Force. That's just how they work.
Then the power shouldn't have such a high cast time. 1.5 sec is an eternity in this game. It really should be an instant ability. But better IMO for Sages/Sorcerors to have a basic "burst" ability.

And as a 'basic attack' it also fails because Seers and Balance specs really don't get anything from using it at all. Balance's spamming attack is TK throw.
