8. I thought it was fine where it was. Great detonator and good for stunning enemies, but does very little damage on it's own and it either doesn't prime or has an extremely short window.

It primes for 5 seconds I think.

Anyway, it's ok on its own, but pair a character with chain overload with a paladin or someone with flamer and this becomes absolutely amazing.

Umm, that's why you don't use it on armor. The whole point of the power, in most circumstances, is to combine it with another to produce explosions. It has low recharge speed, can hit up to three targets, and does good damage to shields and barriers.

It really doesn't do that much damage even to shields or barriers. You're better off taking an Acolyte as a back up weapon. Put disruptor ammo on it and it primes for tech bursts or incendiary ammo for fire explosions and you'll be doing way better than just spamming overload.
