Deadly Swipe now consumes more energy when used purely for mobility, but is more energy efficient in fights, even in PvE. Chain Slash's first hit had too much value, so its damage output was adjusted to increase with each chained hit, reducing its damage in 1v1, but also adding a more interesting dynamic by rewarding multiple hits in group fights. Forbidden Stab can now completely negate any healing and interrupts spell casting. This new strong-but-short debuff places more emphasis on the timing of the ability activation.
