Affects Finishing moves, energy

Relentless Strikes is a passive level 54 Subtlety rogue ability. It gives all finishing moves a chance to instantly regenerate 40 Energy.

Tips & Tactics

  • It essentially allows certain finishing moves to be used in such a way that your energy acts as though you did not use a finishing move at all. For example, if you use a finishing move that requires 40 energy, then you will have not used any energy at all.
