— In-game description [?]


  • The whole sequence takes 2.4 sec.
  • If any of the three attacks is the killing blow (not the damage over time), the target has a different death animation, where they hold onto their throat and cough/grunt in pain, as if choking (possibly on their own blood, due to all attacks causing bleeding damage).
