— In-game description


  • Prior to this trait's removal, the following bugs existed:
    • This trait sometimes failed to activate until striking a foe below a health threshold of 50%.
    • Having Wilderness Knowledge active caused this trait to trigger at a threshold around 30% lower than it normally would.
