Sweeping Strikes is an excellent tactical ability when used correctly. It doesn't have a high chance to expose, but if used in a pack of enemies it has a chance to expose each one of them. This ability deals about three times more damage than a melee weapon's normal strike, and is one of the best melee damage dealing abilities.
