*According to the GW2 Wiki, primary strikes are 0.400 while projectiles are 0.15 for Whirling Wrath. Personal tests show that the

  • primary strike skill coefficient is 0.372 +/- 0.002;
  • projectile skill coefficient is 0.138 +/- 0.002; and
  • damage reported by the tooltip is higher than the actual damage.

If you would like my methodology and data for this conclusion, feel free to ask.
