Strike quickly and with less effort.


Unless the cooldown is active, you will be able to automatically perform one single target QUICKSTRIKE at a discounted stamina cost. The stamina cost is reduced to 2/3, 1/2, and 1/3 at ranks 1, 2, and 3, respectively. The cooldown lasts 60 seconds, and begins immediately when a discounted QUICKSTRIKE is performed. At rank 3, if 60 seconds pass without an active cooldown, up to 1 charge will be stored and automatically used if a QUICKSTRIKE is performed during a cooldown.
