Aard Sweep is sometimes worth investing points

We recommend investing into this ability if it works with the build you are running. Although this skill will not be quite as useful as some of the other skills, it certainly has its uses, and it certainly will not hurt to have. While it may seem a bit niche, you can invest into this skill if you have already built your more important skills, and have extra points to spend.

This skill makes your Aard Sign effective in all directions. It is also complimented by the Far-Reaching Aard skill which increases the total range of your Aard Sign. This skill should only be used when it is maxed out. Having to lose some chance to knockdown enemies is too big of a liability for the Aard SIgn.

Conclusion

If you prefer having all directions covered when using the Aard Sign, then it is worth it getting this skill. Other than this reason, we do not recommend getting this skill since it becomes redundant because the range of the Aard Sign with the Far-Reaching Aard skill is plenty enough.
