In their defense, isn't Saber Throw being AOE new to 2.0? Given the number of Sents I've seen using it the last two weeks (including a friend of mine), I'm suspecting they're having to break themselves of the habit.
I think he is referring to the NEW 30m dual saber throw ability that maras/sents got in 2.0. So the entire skill is new, and is an AoE. There should be no habit to break.
