Has anyone else used sword symphony much? The few times I tried it in PvP, it didn't land on anything. In PvE, it lands most of the time now, but it doesn't seem to last as long as before. Anyone else gotten it to work better?

Yeah, I works much better than before. It almost never landed before, so I don't have much to compare to, but it's very similar to the "fear" spell - sometimes it lands and mob goes running very far away, and othertimes it lands just to have the mob come back to you and keep hitting you.
In pvp it lands, and a fair amount, but Ive only tried on early 70s and lower toons. With the 76 passive and better m.def, I'm assuming it doesn't land that much on higher level players.

Depends on your jewelry, I've had it land on people in the Olympiad before. Although I don't believe they had mental shield.

Sword Symphony is not a magical skill, hence Mdef doesn't matter..

sword symphony > word of fear....
fixed land rate, i.e. patk, matk, mdef is irrelevant when trying to land this skill... only the lvl of the skill and the lvl of the opponent matters...
word of fear = crappy land rate unless you have a very strong matk weapon + buffs....
not to mention sword symphony has 2x faster cooldown... with reneweal and/or champion it's 3-4x faster....
basically... it's awesome

Sorry for the noobish question my sws is only 40.
Isn't sword symphony a skill you would use in a tight spot or as a last resort, I am unsure of what affect it creates on the mobs and was wondering in what situations you would use this skill ?

with the CT1 , sword symphony lands as a mass fear.
It's not only for mobs.
eg...at mass pvp,when you have enemies close to you,if you do psycho symphony+sword symphony and both land then enemy will be in bad condition :)
Fear for 3-4 seconds most of the times,and also dicrease:speed,attack speed,casting speed for about 45seconds :)

I like the new, improved Symphonies. They actually land somewhat reliably (though not so easily that I'd used them in an Oh, sh*t! situation, but more as an overall strategy) and have decent duration.
Was duelling a Berserker the other day and, though I couldn't manage to land Psycho, SwordSymph definitely took an edge off of his game plan. I still lost, but then I don't have a million different attack skills to spam a 1v1 with.
