Affects Combo points

Seal Fate is a passive level 27 Assassination rogue ability. It grants an additional combo point whenever you critically strike with a single-target melee attack that generates combo points.


This ability is sought after mainly for fast Combo Point (CP) generation. It is great when used with [Mutilate] as it has a high critical strike rate. It works well for both PvP and raiding. Also works well with daggers, seeing as the mentioned combo point generator use daggers, which can lead to quick burst damage.
