The Firewind Blade's property states, "Whenever you hit one or more targets with a fire power using this weapon, one enemy adjacent to you takes fire damage equal to 1+the weapon's enchantment bonus." How often does this damage activate? If I use a close blast power that hits three targets, would the damage instance occur once for each target, or once total for the power?

It would only trigger once. This is because the trigger is written "one or more" and 3 is one or more. If it had instead been "Whenever you hit a target" it would indeed trigger 3 times.

In any discussion of the Firewind Blade, it's important to note that it's a separate damage instance, which potentially pings vulnerabilities twice. \$\endgroup\$
