AoE doesn't = better.
Just talking about the legacy skill, not any others :
dirty trick vs orbital bombardement -> OB do more single target damage, and is an AoE. For the cost of a single target stun.
Sticky grenade vs flamethrower -> flamethrower win again, and it's an AoE.
Force choke vs force sweep -> I don't know.
Project vs lightning storm -> LS win the match, and it's an AoE.

But BW favorings the Empire, and putting more love with them ? You can't be serious, rep have a more beautiful fleet station, more interesting classes stories,... oh wait....

I found the damage of Force Storm to be fairly un-inspiring and that it didn't last for very long because my 3 second channel got interrupted pretty quickly when I tested it out. I got a lot more mileage from Wither and Discharge of Dark Charge than I ever got from that. This is me using it as a level 50 Sith Assassin, so maybe its somehow more uber at lower levels? I'll give it a test on my Jedi Knight I guess.

May I ask... when are you using Heroic Moment in a situation where an extra channeled AOE is not going to be interrupted and isn't only hitting a single target? I ask because I have always used Heroic Moment (outside of testing this ability) in a close fight against a single very dangerous enemy (such as a very tough elite or a champion) and in those cases an AoE is basically wasted anyway. I'd have preferred the stun which means I might have to level up that Sith Warrior alt or the Smuggler alt I was planning on.
