Mortred, the Phantom Assassin. A name that sends chills down the spines of the Sentinel. With her legendary precision, she can effortlessly cut through the armor of her foes, turning each into a bloody mess. A devestating Coup de Grace to end your life, leaving you to rot as the Phantom Assassin disappears into the shadows.
Or that's what it's supposed to be. In reality, it's more like this:
Mortred, the Phantom Assassin. A name that incites chuckles from the hard carry community, knowing that Mortred cannot outcarry them. With her clumsy generic critical, a Mortred player is often left behind, praying to deal some reasonable damage with a crit or two. An unreliable Coup de Grace that lets you kill her, leaving you laughing as she curses her rotten luck.
So, what's the problem here?
Coup de Grace is supposed to be a steriod skill, and it would be great if it was a normal skill - a 45% overall damage increase makes your enemies go "WTF" when you end their life with a final blow. Unfortunately, it's an ultimate, and the benefits are subpar for the level of an ultimate skill.
It also doesn't fit its name - a secondary concern, but a concern nonetheless.

A final blow, one that signifies the end of the battle and the utter destruction of your enemies. . . that's what a Coup de Grace is. And that's what this skill needs to become.
Without further ado, let me present a new and refined Coup de Grace. . .
