Can Electric Execution Be Looked At?

As it stands this talent isn't very compelling.

3 points for a 9% increase in saber charge damage is a horrible tradeoff, particularly for Darkness sins.

I feel like this was a leftover talent from a beta build where saber charges must've done a whole lot more damage than they do now...

I'm not really asking for a buff or nerf to the Darkness tree, I'd just like to see this throw-away talent replaced with something (anything) useful.

Electric execution can not be looked at, it's way too bright and would blind you instantly. That is unless, of course, you are Chuck Norris. Then YOU would look at electric execution and blind IT instantly.

Very simply, they should switch it to apply at discharge as well, or instead. NOW it would be worth it.

Or a 1-3 point talent that either lower the rate limit on dark charge healing or stays like this and boost dark charge healing by X/2X/3X %. With the self-heal nerf on dark charge, lower level are a bit lacking tank-wise for the sin/shadow tank.

Do we know for sure it doesn't improve both the damage and healing if you're using Dark Charge? If the amount healed has a direct relationship with the amount of damage done, it stands to reason that it would.

Actually, maybe someone should check the tooltip for the damage/healing numbers before and after applying this to see what happens. Will do that at some point.

I wish overcharge saber applied to discharge as well, but that might be a bit too much.

Doesn't matter if it does or not, the damage is tiny and the heal is tiny. TBH, the entire 5 points in Swelling Shadows and Electric Execution should be looked at. Not worth 5 points and if you skip them (easily done) you see no difference whatsoever.
