Yeah, but he's trying to beat people senseless with the flame of his devotion. Remember that bit in Star Wars where Obi Wan's lightsaber nearly dies during the duel with Vader? The "your powers are weak old man" bit? Its like that. No matter how good you are at close combat, you ain't going to get far with a sword that keeps fizzling out of existence.

Anyway, a nice GM (such as myself) would let you augment with sword skill anyway.
