The skill "opportune attack" which gives the next focus spender 10% more damage does not work.
The proc itself disappears when using an attack like blade storm or blade rush, but the damage is the same without the proc, instead of 10% more damage.

Please report this via ingame support so they fix this soon.

Are you absolutely certain? because whenever it's up, i ALWAYS make sure to use blade storm or our execute, and that buff is the only difference for me between a 2.2k crit and a 2.5k crit. At least, that what my log is telling me. /shrug.

I tested it for about 10 mins with Blade Rush, Blade Storm, Crippling Throw, the damage is the same.
What you might be experiencing is min-max damage. I crit between 3 - 3.5k with Blade Storm without Precision Slash and the Proc does not change a thing.

are you using precision slash off of the gcd? i find that my ps uses up my oppertune strike. i br and then slip it in during the gcd so that master strike and bladestorm get the effects of ps.

Precision Slash wasn't involved in testing the +10% damage.

Sadly, it's true.
My Blade Storm has toolip damage 1750-1814. On dummy with 5% armor it hits on average for 1696, that's 1785 before mitigation. 1925 is lower end of Blade Storm on steroids(with Opportune Attacks active), so lowest possible damage on that target should be 1828 if everything was working. Since I didn't see any hit close to that, or any real difference between hits with buff and without, I guess Opportune Attacks really doesn't work.
