Saw this and wanted to chime in
Better than Jin at 5/5 you said. I believed you... 100 merits points later, I find out that, inside abyssea anyway, BLADE JIN WINS!!!!! 5/5, I could NOT break 2k. That should give you an idea how much this sucks - with Jin I break 2k every time.
Ok, so the argument is well, it will be better outside of abyssea. But, why oh why do we think it is ok to pay 100 FREAKIN MERITS for a situational WS?!?!?! For that amount of time wasted, that should be everyone's primary WS unless you have Blade: Hi.
Square Enix, I hate you. -.-
This guy below has the right of it
What gear are you using for Shun? You need both gorget and belt to make it good, with both of those you will increase the ws's damage by ~30%.
I just ground out lvl 5 on Shun yesterday, and this guy is correct. Since i haven't finalized my WS set yet, i'm only WSing in gorget/blet and byakko's. This WS is very consistent, hitting 2.7k+ very regularly and have seen some good spikes 3.5-4k as well-this is inside Aby.
I've played routinely with guys who have Hi and while i'm positive Shun won't beat it, after i finish my WS set for it i'm sure it will be competive. All in all i think katana made out ok even after SE mucked with Shun some.

Quite possibly the DUMBEST thing i've ever read.
