  • Death's Dance Death's Dance's is intended for attack damage casters who mostly deal physical damage. It's best used when looking for an aggressive sustain item, with the advantage over life steal that its sustain passive isn't restricted to basic attacks only.
  • Death's Dance Death's Dance second passive has to be judged critically, as its damage over time will interrupt channels that are interrupted by damage (e.g. Behind Enemy Lines Behind Enemy Lines), and delay abilities that are delayed by damage (e.g. Twitch's Twitch's Ambush Ambush).
    • This unique passive's usage is best realized, when looking at a simplified situation where an opponent inflicts instant burst damage onto you. By transforming 30% of the incoming damage into a damage over time effect, it is equal to a health multiplicator of e.g. 23.6% or 11.8%.
      • As a result, your opponent has to overkill you to actually finish you off within this time span, which slightly increases your time to react and deploy counter measures like shields or healing. At the same time it also slightly improves your time window for retaliation, and is as such most powerful in a fight between two Slayer icon.png assassins.
      • Regardless, it's important to not overestimate this unique passive's influence, as most Slayer icon.png assassins generally overkill an opponent, and as such aren't hindered by slightly increased health.
