Bolt of Hatred?Edit
Could this Sith spell be the same thing as Bolt of Hatred? Also, how about folding the Spear of midnight black and the Kinetite into this article? Similar mergers have been done with the Mind Trick variants... Gorthuar 09:26, 30 November 2008 (UTC)
- Unless those abilities were specifically stated to have been products of Sith magic, then I would say no.—Tommy9281 (Peace is a lie) 13:12, 30 November 2008 (UTC)
Alignment Effects Edit
Since it is pure dark side Force used as a weapon would a light sider and dark sider of equal strength have equal effects to it? I mean in KotOR 2 (Yes I know its not canon) a character can absorb pure dark energy and potentially get stronger because of it.
5.3 Factual correction Edit
How is it that Cin Drallig is using this ability? Ignoring the fact that it's explicitly stated to be the product of the dark side and relies on hatred being multiplied well beyond any reasonable threshold, where in the game did Cin Drallig canonically use this ability?—Unsigned comment by 18.104.22.168 (talk • contribs).
I'm sure I've seen it in other sources, but as of right now, I guess one is all I need: in Courscant Nights III: Patterns of the Force, when Vader's under the influence of bota, he starts uncontrollably hurling around 'blasts of pure/raw Dark Side energy'. Unless this is supposed to be just uncontrollable destruction (or Force Destruction), I have to note that this DOES match the description of Force blast. A possible use?

TOR useage Edit
Why is it listed as being used in TOR? There's really absolutely no proof of it actually being an ability for TOR, and the screenshot isn't proof it's "Force Blast" over "Force Push."--Jxspyder 14:39, July 21, 2010 (UTC)
- It's very hard to distinguish Force powers in The Old Republic at times because it does not have an organized category specific to Force powers. Rather all Force techniques are treated the same as any other "Ability," and Force powers are divided into multiple "Abilities" based on the way the power is used. Take for example Force healing. There is no Force power in the game specifically named "Force healing." Instead it is known by at least six other names: "Healing Trance," "Rejuvenate," "Salvation," "Benevolence," "Deliverance," and "Force Mend." All of which are Force healing employed in different ways, whether it is healing oneself, healing others, healing others in a more powerful way, healing others in a minor way instantly but allowing them to continue regenerating health for a short amount of time, etc. All of this makes it hard to identify Force powers at times.
- With Force blast, we face the same problem: there is no "Ability" in the game that is specifically named Force blast, just as there is no "Ability" in the game specifically named Force healing. However, there are several "Abilities" that are quite like Force blast, the Jedi Sage's "Disturbance" being an example, as it sends a blast of energy at the target. Further exacerbating the problem is that I don't think we know how a typical "Force blast" appears, unlike Force lightning because the comic book does not provide a very clear image and the Revenge of the Sith video game graphically and incorrectly represents Force pushes as visible light blue waves of energy, therefore discrediting its reliability on the depiction of Force powers in use.
