I've been talking to other captains, they all use pressing attack as their main attack for battle-hardened state. I find hard to understand why; I haven't had a good explanation, most are like "it is the newer skill, so it most be better, because every other captain does, etc."

For me I find it rather useless. It has some pros, such as a slight damage advantage over devastating blow when all hits land normally, and because of 2 hits, less of a chance to miss battle hardened state altogether. But crits with devastating blow are over twice as much as those with pressing attack. That beats very quickly whatever small amount DPS advantage pressing attack had; especially when you have high crit %

So what do you think? Am I missing something here?
