Lacerate was the 31-point talent in the hunter's survival tree and requires a melee weapon, before patch 1.7.0.


Was the Hunter's only melee DoT. Its damage was worse than a Rank 4 [Serpent Sting], because of this it was considered the worst Talent in the game, let alone worst 31 point talent in the game. Very few people ever took it for anything other than a joke.
