I've been using this WS allot lately, and yes its a line AoE, with damage diminishing as it travles, i was in Ro'Meave doing my trial, and aggroed a dool and weapon, lined them up, sonic thrust, the main target took like 1300 dmg and the doll behind him took 900, can close distortion with drakesbane, its nice and consistant, dmg hardly drops below 900, but you will sometimes get those crappy ones, due to mob's Def, and may miss, in Dyna glacier i was hitting for 900+ most i did was 1457, i find it strange that SE made a AoE polearm WS, someone must have been high

Whats wrong with that? If you have a giant spear and stab someone, the weapon is gunna go through them. Think of it as a follow on attack. Your piercing straight through the mobs.

By the way it's attack is not buffed even though it's a 1 hit weapon skill. I kinda messed with it in Beseiged. Attack does have a nice effect but so does Strength IMO I cant tell for sure what the mod is.

-Tested on Trolls btw.. Naked it did like 160 damage if it was prebuffed it would be more wouldnt it? With STR/Attack gear it popped for about 700

Edit: it would also be reasonable to assume it isn't prebuffed because of the massive spike damage on Too Weak monsters right?

Assuming it has STR/ATT mods, it could be a replacement for Wheeling Thrust?

Definately.

EDIT: I've been doing a little testing.

It seems to have a substantial STR mod (I'm almost positive about this) and either a rather large fTP mod or a large attack bonus.

It's done consistent damage for me, whether I had hate or not. I highly doubt it's enmity based.

Something is wrong with Sonic Thrust, I love it, but I imagine SE is going to nerf it in a way. Build 300% tp and use it, the modifier is ridiculous for it. I was dropping anywhere from a 1300-1900 Sonic Thrust, on the Vulture's at lvl77.
I died a lot though cause I would *** around and line them up. Like a kid with a new toy, I was having way too much fun.

Take some screenshots or parse it and show us some numbers. I can do some math and see if it has an attack bonus.

Post your weapon skill sets stats too. Your attack, strength, and any food you might have used.

Was thinking...

What do you guys think is better for Sonic Thrust... that new 12acc 5 polearm skill head piece or a 5 STR piece? Know heca cap would be deal heh, but I'm curious how much of a difference the 5 extra skill would make, if any!

I haven't played in a long time and I didn't see any of the new WSs, but isn't Sonic Thrust one hit? If so, 12 ACC and +5 skill would be just a tiny tiny bit more useful than WSing in one of these.

Fairly sure it doesn't. Raw power via high fTP and a 60% STR mod (according to Studio Gobli) carries this WS a long way.

While the WS certainly sounds nice, it wouldn't seem practical in a camp that doesn't have a substantial amount of distance between mobs or their spawns given the reach of it. Which is a shame really after seeing all these tests :(
