    Not sure about most, but the few bm i know who use it for purge, the weapons are not refined. If they are not refined, you get more attacks in from auto attacking than using skills while purging someone during a stun lock.

    Yea its true if a skill already carries a debuff the purge wont work, but it really does depend on if ur pole is refined or not if u should be using skills or not. Most bms including myself use auto attack for purge, tho with the updated farstrike would definitely be worth it to refine a pole alot higher :O Dont think u should add in farstrike, maybe drakes ray instead. I can definitely see where these merge skills can hinder a bit....will definitely have to give it thought.

    One thing to consider when trying to use a pole to purge with skills would be skill cooldowns. At a 3 second cooldown compared to 8 seconds on each means you can use either skill once every 4 seconds if you alternate halfway through the cooldown. So what I'm saying is, with cooldowns, there is no real difference. With no channeling time, it's extremely fast, too.

    And in turn for doing this, you get more AoE damage when you need to be hitting hard. There's no reason not to get Army Crusher mainly due to its cooldown.

    This.

    And if you're Sage, it deal even greater damage.

    Skills nice, just like tiger leap (ferocious leap) shares the same cooldown and mines demon so the added aoe range of 12 meters dealing base physical damage + 5416 is very nice love spamming it
