      OP on lone wolf scoundrel with poly. Dual daggers, peace of mind, encourage, apotheosis, bedroll for maximum damage buff beforehand. If its a peaceful NPC - aggro him with basic attack to start battle, so he won't turn around and interrupt the skill mid-sequence, then one-shot him in the back with it. If you've got into battle without buffs, then with adrenaline you can apotheosis+peace of mind (or haste for the next turn), then use this skill and have a spare AP left for chameleon if there are still weaker enemies roaming around. Next turn you'll have mortal blow/fan of knives to clean up and skin graft to reset chameleon, adrenaline and this skill too.
      I've lost count of how many supposedly strong high-priority enemies just casually died on me like nobody's business, in the middle of enemy territory.

        This skills is great for opening up an enemy with very high physical armor to your CC teammate as combined with adrenaline and backlash you can hit a target up to 7 times before your turn ends.

          Hannag sells this and a bunch of other source point consuming skillbooks, at least in the definitive edition.

            I could see using this for a combo like: Adrenaline, Backlash, Daggers Drawn, Sucker Punch. That's Six AP to make Six attacks in total using a free hand rogue, with a possibility of a knockdown at the end, and you should be able to equip an offhand dagger, pawn move, and flurry next turn. Is 2 source worth it? Only if you have access to lots of source already. Depends on what you're doing I suppose.

              Think the trick to this skill is using it with one dagger and shield. Then 5 hits is a great deal then you only hit once for 2 ap. 3 attacks for 2 SP may be a good deal.

                Can't this skill hit multiple enemies? That would make it worthwhile in some scenarios, wouldn't it? Still, not very impressive for later in the game...

                  well its 275%
                  4 AP is 2 attacks or 200%
                  So that's 75% of an attack for 2 SP
                  Can't imagine that being worth it.

                    This skill seems lackluster on paper. At 55% dmg per swing, you're spending 2 source points to do slightly more dmg than if you just auto attacked twice instead.
