I think I must be missing something because it has yet to trigger. I've attempted it half a dozen times in PvE and nothing happens. I'm making sure the enemies are clustered together. So far all it's done is waste my turn, lol. Help?

In the recent update KI tweaked Blast of Discord so that not only does the enemy need to be clustered together, but also wounded.
Instead of using BoD the first round try using it in the later stages of the battle.
Or you can use many of the damaging doubloons ( like Sudden Squall ) then choose BoD.

I have had this happen too. Ok, what are the new conditions for this power that I have moved to the back with a sigh.

Ah, thank you! I figured they updated something because I watched the videos when everyone was trying it out in test realm and it just didn't work that way for me. I skimmed update notes and didn't see that so I was lost. I kept trying different things and before your reply I thought I'd narrowed it down to them having to be clustered AND surrounding my team. But it was apparently the wounding that counted.

Now I won't be wasting my moves anymore. Thanks!

New conditions, see above, Dante. It still works, sometimes very well. This power is still in the front of the deck for my Privateers. It just requires a more strategic use. You're all for strategy, right?

Kinda renders it useless for me really now because at later stages of the battle other buffs make other moves a better option.

I've used it very successfully. Especially on enemies down to half health, very often when this power triggers, they'll take each other down. For the privateer that solos, this is still a great power.
Don't count this power as "useless".
