Signet of Capture:


  • This is the most reliable way to remove a stance, especially a stance that blocks attacks.
  • Because the critical hit leads to easily reproducible damage, Wild Blow is often used when doing tests to learn more about the game's damage mechanics.
  • Often used by primary Assassins and Dervishes, because they rarely use adrenaline-based skills and benefit highly from critical hits.
  • The adrenaline loss of this skill occurs after the blow has struck, meaning you do not gain any adrenaline from the attack.
