Slice and Dice is a level 9 rogue ability. It is a finishing move that makes quick work of enemies by allowing you to attack more quickly than usual. By increasing the speed of your auto attacks, it also allows more poison applications within a given time frame.


Tips and tactics

  • Slice and Dice is the best finishing move to use in raid situations. As it increases your white damage, and most damage in a raid comes from white damage, it should always be up.
