      Dagger abilities need some love. Not only they don't do what they are supposed to (i.e. Triple damage on dagger roll-attack with Assassinate or extra damage on bleeding targets with Frost Bite), but also Blink is the only ability that applies bleed with a condition while all the other bleed abilities do it on hit. AND you can only apply it on a single target as opposed to the other bleed abilities. Also, no poisoning abilities ? Why ?

        Reap is pretty freaking good, it does a moderate amount of damage, only has a CD of 5 sec and if you hit an enemy with reap before it's buff of 8 sec runs out, you get another stacked 20% damage buff and the timer on the buff restarts!

          Half of the spear abilities mentioned are actually halberd abilities. There are only two spear abilities which are ‘spear rush’ and ‘serpents barrage’
