It is unlocked at mastery level 1

Fatal Blade
Energy Cost 45 Throw your weapon to a ground target location. Keep channeling to keep the weapon spinning at that position, dealing 80 physical damage every 0.75s in a 5m radius. Each hit also reduces targets' movement speed by 8% and damage by 22% (against players)/ 10% (against mobs) for 6s (stacks up to four times). The ability can be channeled for 2.5s, but only the last four ticks will deal damage (the first still applies one stack of the debuff).
Cast Time channeled (uninterruptible)
Range 15m
Cooldown 18.56s
