Yeah if you solely want to use it as a movement skill that doesn’t work out that well.
But i can tell you that you can use Surge as a main dmg skill.
It basically can serve as a cooldown nuke if specced accordingly, especially combined with stuff like those 2 mentioned “buff up” mechanics.
Surge itself already has crazy dmg nodes within it’s tree. (100% more dmg from Storym Battery, another 40% more dmg from Concentrated Current, 3% more dmg per 1% MS and hefty 50 flat melee lightning damage).
All of that works together without any crazy investment and if you wanna make that explode through the ceiling you could fit in a Static into that build and get hefty 3% more lightning dmg per 4 static which can be up to 150% additionam more dmg multiplier).
I can highyl recommend playing that kind of a build, because you basically kill everything with your mobility skill, which is a crazy different playstyle compared to other classes.
The closest to this would be a Dancing Strike Rogue or maybe a Shift into Shadow Cascade Rogue
