Tactical Information

After level 72, Improved Cutting Attack is a Captain's main direct bleed skill. It is a useful DPS skill if your enemy is going to live long enough for the DoT to utilize its full duration.

Using Grave Wound when the DoT of Cutting Attack is on your enemy target removes this DoT and applies the Aggressive Stance effect to yourself, increasing your perceived threat by 10%. Using Improved Grave Wound works the same, but does not remove the DoT and in addition adds a second, more powerful DoT to the enemy target.
