  • Impale (Sword): The time this skill is active has been reduced from 10 seconds to 4 seconds.
    • Torment is now applied every second that the skill is active, rather than every 3 seconds.
    • Reduced the number of torment stacks when the missile hits from 2 to 1 to compensate for the increase in pulses, so that the number of stacks remains the same.
    • This skill will no longer fire at enemies behind the warrior.
